    The bed was the most comfortable i have ever slept in. The French cafe downstairs had gorgeous food. And the staff were incredibly helpful

    Our room was a bit noisy as we could hear the garbage lorries early every morning. If we had been hiher (we were L2) this may not have been such a problem

    Exceptionally obliging & friendly staff. We did not like the outlook from the room we were originally allocated & were immediately upgraded to an executive suite with a lovely outlook.Very comfortable and clean.

    It would appear that some rooms have a very "ordinary" outlook. Balconies are useless for somebody who uses a wheelchair.

    This is a clean, modern, and quiet hotel. I particularly loved the art prints in the hotel room. I was traveling alone and felt perfectly safe here. It is very close to the Royal Botanic Garden and Art Museums in Melbourne and is right on a tramway into Downtown.

    Internet (Wi-Fi or Ethernet) is not free.

    Very good

    Enjoyed the fantastic design of the room. The bed was comfortable and the selection of movie titles is fantastic.

    1.would be perfect if there was a washer/dryer. 2.should hv some free complimentary items for guests e.g bottled water/coffee & tea which is common practice in hotels.

    This Hotel was one of the best value for money that we have stayed at. Everything from the decor, the service, the ease of check out, the parking was reasonable too. The two eateries on ground level were excellent, we tried both. All in all a very relaxing stay, we will come again. Regards Phill

    The bed is so comfortable and the room is very clean. We also liked the extra touch of gourmet teas and coffee in our room.

    Really enjoyed this hotel for many reasons. For work it was perfectly located for meetings. Had the family along with me and they were superbly looked after. Highly recommend The Blackman as a funky destination with friendly staff and well sized rooms. Only negative is charging for parking car which was a tad annoying............

    Car parking charge......

    The hotel was very close to public transport, (tram) and the staff were very helpful with providing directions and instructions for obtaining a tram ticket. The room was very comfortable and private.

    A very frustrating drive around the car park,to find there were no spaces left. We were very lucky to then get a park almost at the front door and being a weekend there were no parking fees after 6pm Friday.

    Fabulous

    Ease of travel to city - trams on St Kilda Road appear every five minutes both ways. Good restaurants within walking distance on St Kilda Road.

    Being a Charles Blackman fan and loving his art I loved the paintings around the Hotel We purchased myki cards and travelled around Melbourne on public transport it was very convenient to have a tram stop nearby. Since returning home we have advised our Travel Agent and friends of the Art Blackman Thank you for a lovely stay

    The Blackman is a very comfortable contemporary hotel. The room was excellent with good views over the bay on one side and out to the city on the other.The balconies have chairs and table so nice to sit and have a drink admiring the view.The decor is a quirky and the whole place has a sense of humour whilst providing information on Charles Blackman...an added enjoyment.There is also a kitchenette which is very serviceable. We in fact did not use this as the two adjoining restaurants were excellent...a patisserie for breakfast and an Italian for evening meal. The staff at both the hotel and the restaurants were friendly, pleasant ,informative and professional.There is a tram stop just at the end of the street on St Kilda Rd, so easy access to city.My husband and I enjoyed our stay enormously and will happily recommend this hotel

    The bathroom may be on the small size but very adequate. I would like a place to rest your toilet bag whilst doing makeup...it needs a shelf.The fittings are excellent and the shower recess generous.
