Named after renowned Australian artist Charles Blackman, it comes as no surprise that Art Series The Blackman Hotel displays several of his works of art. Located in St. Kilda, within walking distance from Melbourne's central business district, this hotel is well located for both business and leisure travelers to the city. The bright and kitschy interiors give you a break from the beige-toned hotel rooms and offer guests private terraces and spas. The city is easy to explore with numerous public transportation links available, or guests can choose from the signature Smart Cars and bicycles available for rent at the hotel. All rooms at the hotel come with iPod docks, HD flat screen TV’s, and spacious balconies. If you are looking for a fashionable place of stay in Melbourne, Art Series The Blackman Hotel makes for an excellent choice.

Bern from Australia”
My husband and I have stayed here on more than one occassion, it is central and not too an expensive Uber ride to many of the city attractions. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the kitchen in the room is great. We have always been made to feel welcome at check in. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel.
Great hotel. Very spacious room with kitchenette, microwave, fridge etc. Very friendly staff, excellent customer service. Loved the attached cafe/bar FRENCH for breakfast. Great views from our balcony. Would definitely stay here again & recommend.
Awesome boutique hotel”
This was a great boutique hotel, the rooms were big and the studio one I had came equipped with a nice balcony, convection oven/microwave, stove top, full size fridge/freezer, a breakfast table/chair and a VERY comfortable bed/pillows. It felt very spacious and stylish! bathroom was small but lots of storage cabinets. Oh and there was a cheap laundry room on the floor which was very useful. The staff were very friendly and checking in and out was a breeze. As for location it close to South Yarra ( not in St. Kilda just on st. Kilda road.. ) but there's a tram right out front that gets u to CBD in 10 mins. You could also walk in about 20-30 ( but I Uberd mostly). I had a very lovely stay-would def stay again and recommend to others. Cheers!
Totally Hip With No Pretense”
We loved staying here... The hotel has a great vibe from the people who work there, to the art and the wall and the really comfortable room. We had a room with two queen beds -separated from each other and each with its own tv. It also had an unexpected kitchenette with a balcony. Lots of mirrors, comfy bedding; it was just great.
Everything was perfect for our 5 night stay at The Blackman ... Extra large room , Perfect location, trams every 5 mins , conveniently located virtually across the road, room cleaned daily, fabulous up market toiletries brand, fabulous city outlook, convenient cafe & restaurant , part of the same building , the gnocchi was 'la dente ' 😊& the waiter was an absolute gem ... The reception staff were courteous - our stay was nearly a 10/10 ... The only negative was the state of the carpet- it was stained galore and desperately needs replacing - I've never stayed in a hotel with such filthy looking flooring - & our stay would have been perfect if the hotel had a pool or jacuzzi ( although the hotel does offer use of another Art Series Hotels pool facilities, which is located not too far from The Blackman.
Apartment style boutique artistic design hotel”
I drove and really appreciated the free parking, hotel room had really good unblocked views, room comfort was top notch, amenities were great, kitchenette was very useful with microwave and dishwasher! Room had great amount of light but just 2 things I would like to comment on, no free wifi and no free bfst which was a little down side~ but about the bfst there r many good cafes around which you can enjoy!!! Overall a great stay!!!
Very comfortable and artistic room”
The hotel felt cool and modern with a good touch of class. The prints on the walls really created an atmosphere. The soaps felt like quality and the linen was comfortable. staff were not that friendly but were professional and efficient. Only negative was extra charging for internet. I just find this wrong in today's world.
Beautiful Hotel and Excellent Location”
The hotel itself was an experience. Rooms were decorated with artwork and everything has a story. Rooms were very clean. Location of the hotel was excellent. Public trams which allows you to access the whole of Melbourne was 5 mins away. Bakery/Coffee shop at the lobby served excellent food at good value. Gymnasium inside the hotel was adequately furnished with equipment. Staff was very friendly and accomodating
Lovely boutique hotel with style”
Everything was designed quite perfectly with attention paid even to minute details. Warm welcoming message shown on TV screen was quite sweet. The room is average in size but the combination and arrangement of furniture and decor were totally impressive. The bed was extremely comfortable. In short, it is quite an experience being here. After staying at this hotel, it makes me want to try the other art series offerings. Highly recommended!
The Blackman my new Amour !!”
You know when you have found the best Hotel to suit all your needs and the Blackman is now my new found friend .
Modern Chic comfortable Hotel”
The Blackman hotel is a modern Chic Hotel located between Commercial Road and Toorak Road and there is a tram stop just metres from the front door. The rooms are a reasonably good size comma and are fitted out with a full size fridge, bathrobes and a safe, a microwave and cooktop comma crockery cutlery and an electric jug. The bed is a pillow top bed with a doona and it is comfortable. The room also has a table and chairs a desk and chair and an LCD TV with limited cable channels. The downfall is the bathroom which is very small and the shower has average water pressure. The location is good with easy access to the CBD Prahran or St Kilda by using the tram and as it is out of the city it is nice and quiet so you get a good sleep.
A quiet hotel in a great location.Comfortable beds and affable staff.I will return.
The hotel staff are very friendly and the room extremely comfortable.
Parking is available within hotel building”
Room is comfortable with balcony. It is comfy and equipped with cooking utensils though I didn’t use at all. Parking is available within the hotel building which is convenient!
Great spot ”
The staff were so helpful and so happy to oblige. Fantastic hotel with so many gorgeous Blackman artworks and really enjoyed the info via the book and the doco. Thanks heaps for treating me to an upgrade and a bottle of terific champagne to celebrate my 70th birthday. I shall return one day!
Highest Marks for the The Blackman Hotel”
The Blackman Hotel was the perfect hotel for our stay. The staff was extraordinarily helpful and friendly. The room was unbelievably spacious and well-appointed. The location in St. Kilda was close enough for a quick tram ride into St. Kilda proper and a lovely walk into the CBD. Their rental car (a Smart Car) was so very convenient for our one-day excursion to the Healesville Sanctuary and Yarra Valleyy Wine Region. This was a wonderful experience!
Funky hotel, well positioned and friendly staff. ”
We chose this hotel for its great location and it looked a bit different to the other bigger hotels in the city. Great position between trams on St. Kilda road and Albert park lake and St Kilda. Spacious room, loved the decor and art and the staff couldn't be more welcoming and friendly.
Stunning hotel with amazing staff and servcie”
All I can say about The Blackman is that it’s my hotel of choice. I have stayed here before and everytime I’m here the experience is that much better. I can’t seem to look past The Blackman when it comes to accommodation in Melbourne. Everything about the hotel is so impressive and their staff are equally fabulous.. I would like to make a special mention to Micky who made our stay at the Blackman that much better with her bubbly personality and the willingness to provide us with the best of everything to add to our experience.. I will stay at the Blackman again whenever I’m in Melbourne and continue to encourage my families and friends to experience The Blackman.
Great room, good view”
Hotel is great for a get-away, there is a great restaurant on the ground floor and we ordered from there and ate on our balcony which was great but some people may appreciate other dining options close by (you can always take a tram!). Bed was a little soft but otherwise the room was great.
