"Exceeds expectations every time we stay"
We prefer to stay at The Blackman whenever we are holidaying in Melbourne. The staff are wonderful, so friendly and helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure our stay is a comfortable experience. Its always a pleasure to keep coming back and I look forward to our next stay.
We had a wonderful weekend away in Melbourne over the Easter period. Upon check-in we were given a complementary upgrade to a larger room with a huge balcony to soak up the sun. It was our anniversary and upon entering our room we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a handwritten note. The tram stop is just 100m away with trams running every few minutes to and from the CBD. We had coffee and a nice breakfast at the the patisserie down stairs. We also ate dinner at the restaurant including a free drink as we were members of the Priority Rewards program. Thank you for a memorable weekend. We will be back.
"Very comfortable handy to city"
Large room with very good kitchen facilities (M/wave/Dishwasher/Kettle/crockery), desk &table +plus chairs and outside balcony. Quirky artworks dominate room. Poor lighting in dining/kitchen area (needs an additional light). Nowhere to put suitcases. Could not turn down air conditioning - too hot to sleep at night with sheet/duvet on. Friendly and helpful front desk staff.
"Amazing staff, great location, fabulous hotel"
My husband & I stayed for 2 nights in April. Warm welcome & complimentary upgrade was a wonderful start to a lovely weekend. The hotel is quirky, full of beautiful art & a refreshing change to the standard hotel. We stayed in a junior suite that had a massive balcony with a dining table & 2 sun beds. We had a view of the ocean & Albert Park. The room had a kitchenette with a full sized fridge which I loved. The bathroom was small but spotlessly clean. The fact that it was located behind huge glass doors covered with lovely art made it a quirky touch. We asked for Italian restaurant recommendations & was lucky enough to have asked Michela (on reception) who just happened to be Italian. She was so beautiful & gave us a list of her favourite restaurants. We chose 38 chairs in South Yarra which was fantastic. Thank you Michela! Location is fantastic having a tram stop on the corner & trams arriving every few minutes. Overall it was a really great weekend & we look forward to coming back and also trying the other Art Series hotels. Thanks Jayne & Mike
"Cosy and Intimate"
Greeted by friendly staff this charming boutique hotel didn't disappoint. The artworks scattered throughout the hotel were amazing. Room was clean and well presented. Only thing thought the bathroom was a bit on the small size. Got a free upgrade and a late check out which was appreciated. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location, you can walk into the city if you don't mind a bit of a walk or the tram is just at the end of the street. Would recommend it.
