I have stayed here several times now and particularly appreciate the extra amenities (like bathrobes, kitchen facilities), the spaciousness of the rooms, the art books and the very comfortable bed.It is also very convenient to the tram. The room servicing however is somewhat hit and miss, tea bags, milk etc is not always replenished although a call to reception will...

The style of these hotels is outstanding. The service is excellent and I do recommend the Art Series. A short tram ride from the cbd. I was given an upgrade to a slightly larger room (great either way but very good for the price). Very stylish and clean room. When I booked, the pop up options were hard to scroll...

Beautiful corner room overlooking Albert park lake. Don't always have chance to stay at Blackman but when we do we love. It's the best hotel, best service, best food!! We even managed a lovely sunny afternoon walk home from shopping trip into the city, the sunshine and autumn leaves really turned on a spectacular show.

Lovely little aparthotel. Great room, fantastic bed and the best pillows I've ever slept on (you can buy the bed and pillows btw). Artwork is everywhere and the hotel is a visual feast. Staff were fantastic. The Italian bar/restaurant downstairs was perfect for casual, laid-back dining. We stayed here for 10 days in April 2017 and would definitely stay here...

I have heard about the Art series hotels and thought I would start off with The Blackman location which is located on the St Kilda Road, street parking is available on Arthur Street. Walking into check in, was very sleek and stylish, check in was very speedy, and then hotel staff were so friendly. We went to the suite apartment...

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.

Thank you so much for your fantastic 5 stars review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our restaurants, too. On your next visit try to organize a time for an art tour with our Guest Experience Desk and we could talk you through Charles Blackman's art. Looking forward to welcoming you back!

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...
