                    The Blackman is a very hip hotel close to the St. Kilda neighborhood of Melbourne. It also houses a very decent italian restaurant and a cool cafe/bakery. The rooms are very comfortable (I had an amazing king-size bed) and well-equipped for long stays (stove, fridge, dishes, etc.). They also have flat screen TVs with hd channels. The noise level is quite low, so you can get a good night's sleep. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is served very well by public transportation and it is a short walking distance from the Melbourne botanical gardens and a longer walk from the Victoria Gallery of Art. Overall, I enjoyed my stay very much.

                    You are not going to be at the center of the nightlife if you stay here. But Fitzroy Street with many good restaurants is a short tram ride away. While your bed is made every day and the towels are replenished, there is not much cleaning being done; it was noticeable in the bathroom.

                    the design of the hotel is great and the room is comfortable.

                    it's a bit far from the city but it can easily catch up a tram from/to city as the tram stop just locate outside the main road.

                    We enjoyed the art, education & appreciation of Charles Blackman's story, the comfortable room & facilities & the downstairs cafe & bar services. Having a nearby tram stop was also very convenient.

                    The hotel is very smart and stylish. The location, very close to tram stop 23, makes it very handy for calling in at Melbourne centre. St Kilda is a short tram journey away from Melbourne centre.

                    The cafe and restaurant do not serve Australian wine.

                    5 star, clean, modern, excellent location, quiet, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I really could not fault this hotel in any way.

                    The hotel was beautifully decorated with paintings by Charles Blackman. My daughter and I hired bikes from the hotel and biked around to various shopping districts and museums recommended by the hotel. We had a wonderful time.
