The Karmen Apartments are a delight - great location, really comfortable and cosy, great outlook, great artworks (by Marc's mother, and Marc also !) and very welcoming and helpful host! We were blessed by being in Dubrovnik during early Jan 2013 and the Croatian weather was beautiful - fine and sunny and quite warm - and not too busy in...

Marc, the owner of Karmen Apartments, was very friendly and helpful. We arrived in Dubrovnik in December at 4am (b/c our plane was diverted from Dubrovnik to Split due to high wind), and Marc got up to take us from the main gate to the apartment. I know other apartments do not do this. We stayed in apt #2, which...

We stayed in apartment #1 which has stunning views of the harbour from two windows, we were mesmerised by the comings and goings of the boats and people walking the wall. We stayed for 4 glorious nights in what has to be the most perfect setting and place to stay in Dubrovnik. Everything is in walking distance, no need to...

I really enjoyed my stay at Karmen Apartment, number 3, during my vacations in Dubrovnik during the month of September. The apartment is comfortable and charming. It is near to most of the city main attractions, as it is located inside the City Walls The apartment's owner was very receptive and gave us information about restaurants and places to visit....

We enjoyed 8 fantastic nights in apartment #1 that overlooks the town walls and harbour. The apartment provided plenty of comfort and space for three adults with a good kitchen and an excellent full size bathroom. Apart from Marc being an excellent host the Karmen Apartments are located a stones throw from numerous restaurants and bars. You can also walk...

We stayed in both rooms #1 and #2 of Karmen Apartments for our honeymoon last month. It was the perfect set up for a weeks break in Dubrovnik. Great location within the old city walls overlooking the old port. The kitchen had all the facilities we needed, the bed was large in size and the extra touches like slippers and...

We found these apartments on trip advisor and all the great reviews were correct. Marc came and met us and helped with our bags, he was also very helpful for any other information we needed. The key thing for us about the apartment on booking was to be inside the walls of the city but also have excellent self catering...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Karmen Apartments "Personal character and charm within the ramparts." REVIEW The fabulous location right within the ramparts of Old Town would be reason enough to stay here. But with so many fascinating details and your enthralling Anglo-Canadian host, this is a place that you just won't want to leave. Marc van Bloemen has lived in Dubrovnik since 1972, speaks fluent Croat and probably knows more local history than most locals. Every inch of his fine stone mansion is decorated with art, souvenirs, old photos and fascinating keepsakes. From kitschy collages of sea-smoothed glass 'pebbles', to the 1923 'character wall' or the original Marcel Marceau self-portrait, every item tells a story. All rooms are comfortable, air-conditioned and offer a little kitchenette. There's even free wi-fi. Room No 2 features wonderful Deakin semi-naive still-life paintings. It has a small balcony overlooking partly overgrown walls albeit with no real views. The smallest (and cheapest) ground-floor room displays a framed series of Vasko Lipovac prints and was used as the make-up room when the BBC filmed Casanova here during November 2004. ... more   less
