We loved the hotel for its funky look, friendly staff and great amenity to local spots and tram ride into town. Highly recommended for a weekend away (without kids even better). Whilst we had dinner off site, breakfast the next day in the French Cafe was brilliant!

I visit Melbourne every few months and always stay here. From the personalised card in the room welcoming me back to the ultra comfortable beds this place ticks all the boxes. The restaurant downstairs is equally fantastic. For breakfast try the patisserie for yummy food and great coffee. You will not be disappointed with the Blackman.

We found the staff fantastic, from checking in - which was an absolute breeze & after 10 hours travel sorely needed (but unfortunately not often the case) - to the gorgeous art displayed throughout the hotel - the room + layout was pretty much perfect for us while also allowing my 11 year old daughter to enjoy her own little...

We were a group of 5 visiting Melbourne and the Blackman suited out every need. Excellent location, 2 restaurants within, young, friendly and enthusiastic staff, large and comfortable rooms with well appointed bathroom and luxurious linen and robes. Will be buying their brand of bed, pillows and linen shortly! Ask for their preferred Uber driver if you need to be...

We had an excellent visit here in early May. The room was spacious, with a kitchenette. Staff were helpful. Location is good with a 5 min tram ride from Federation Square. Views from our room looked out across Albert Park towards the ocean.

We spent our first two nights in Australia here, and we loved it. Plus side: Friendly and helpful staff, good location midway between St Kilda and the city centre, easy access to both via the tramway, light, airy and spacious room, well equipped little kitchen area, pleasing clean and modern decor, balcony with table and seats, nice smelling eco-friendly toiletries,...
