This is the second of the Art Series hotels I’ve stayed in, and I was drawn back by the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept on!
The Blackman is not exactly located in the most happening area, but I liked being mid-way between St Kilda and the city (both a very easy tram ride along St Kilda Road), plus close to Chapel Street and Toorak. We stayed in a bottom-of-the-range studio room –very compact, but with all the necessary amenities, clean and quiet, and we loved having a balcony with views to the bay from our 17th floor room.
There is a good patisserie and a bar/bistro downstairs. Staff were friendly and helpful, and check-in and out were both very efficient. Wifi, whilst not free, is at least reasonably priced.
Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and would definitely stay at the Art Series again. I’ve rated the hotel four stars rather than five simply because rates for Saturday nights (which is when we stayed) are rather expensive for the location and room-size.
