  • Art Series - The Blackman
    First to Review

    The lobby of the Blackman clearly reveals the hotel’s status as one of the city’s three Art Series hotels (the others being the Cullen and the Olsen). The walls are adorned with a dizzying array of the works of Australian artist Charles Blackman. Beyond the entryway, the hotel proudly displays Blackman’s largely bunny-themed art around every corner of the modern property. The hotel’s amenities—including small fitness area—are modest, but the guestrooms are chocked full of charm. The hotel also rents out smart cars and bicycles to guests, which can be nice for a ride through the neighboring gardens and large parks. The location is directly adjacent to a tram stop and a couple of km from the heart of downtown.

  • Art Series - The Blackman

    A sister hotel to the Olsen, The Blackman is part of the “Art Series,” a group of hotels intended to showcase the work of certain Australian artists by marrying their decor with an artist’s aesthetic. This hotel features 670 digitally reproduced prints of Charles Blackman’s work and is certainly darker in tone than the Olsen – for instance, the gym has features a large, black and white picture of a stone-faced girl jumping rope which would look more at home in a Tim Burton movie. The hotel itself though is a very interesting change of pace for those tired of faceless 5-stars, and character is always welcome. It should be noted that the hotel is in the middle of St Kilda road, which is a very quiet location that at 3km from the CBD is pushing it for centrality, though given tis roughly equidistance from St Kilda and Flinders Street Station just might make it the perfect location for the visitor who wants to soak up every side of Melbourne. Be advised that the guest pool is actually located at the Olsen.
