- Convenient, if you want to be in Old Town. - Nice apartment w/lots of amenities like a kettle, small refrigerator, great view. - Wonderful host. - It was not cumbersome to get to because I had one carryon luggage that was easy to pull and I knew where I was going.

To be able to stay within the medieval walls of Dubrovnik in an apartment overlooking the harbor was a great experience. We were in apartment #1 for three days and really felt at home. We dropped off our rental car just outside the old city walls and had a short walk to the apartment which was easy to find just...

Compact flat with everything you need--we stayed in the smallest unit, on the ground floor. The unit had a mini kitchen with a fridge, sink, etc., and Marc was a friendly and accommodating host who has been there for decades and knows the area well. Highly recommended. Would stay there again.

We were met by our host Marc who took us to the apartment. He was extremely helpful and informative which meant we had a fantastic stay in Dubrovnik. Our apartment was small and quirky, but had everything we needed. To be in the city walls was fantastic and very atmospheric. Everything we needed was literally on our doorstep. We would...

Couldn't have asked for a better location, apartment or host. Marc was fantastic, delivering a mini impromptu tour as he collected us from the gate. Marking locations on a map he provided, we used his recommendations to plan some of our days. The apartment was lovely and was very clean. We can't wait to come back!

Marc was a wonderful host with loads of useful information before we arrived and during our stay.

My husband and I stayed here several nights and were totally satisfied. The flat was well equipped and decorated, was a decent size for the two of us and was in a good location. It was quiet in the evenings for sleeping because of its location whereas I suspect others in the old town may not be because of outside...

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
