My friend and stayed 4 days in the Dubrovnik ad the Karmen Apartments. Marc, the owner, met us outside the Ploce Gate and walked us to the apartments and made sure we had everything we needed and gave us some great recommendations on places to eat and drink, all of which were spot-on. We stayed in Apt. 1 which over...

We have just returned from our third stay in as many years and have already booked a 2014 visit! We have now experienced apartments 1, 2 & 3 and they are all superb. All are well equipped, especially if you prefer to be self catering and each apartment is decorated in an individual style that makes it so comfortable and...

Karment Apartment in Dubronik was our first stop in Croatia. Marc had made it a delightful stay! The email responses were prompt and helpful info was provided prior to the trip. We were greeted by Marc where the taxi dropped us off and he guided us to the apartment. We would totally recommend the place!

No hesitation in recommending Karmen. The apartment was spacious and clean, the welcome was warm, and the location was perfect for a short stay exploring Dubrovnik. Marc (who speaks English and responds quickly to email contact) arranged a taxi from the airport and met us to guide us to our apartment. Excellent!

We'd been traveling pretty steadily and wanted to relax in Dubrovnik for five days. This apartment was just the place for that. Perfect location within the walls of the old city and with a beautiful view of the harbor (we were in Apt. 1). People walking past on the walls made the view more interesting, and were not a bother...

We only stayed here the one night of a one-off night trip to Dubrovnik, so cannot compare to others in city, but the room was extremely clean and comfortable...it felt like home from home. Marc the owner was v friendly and helpful and it was in a good location inside city wall.

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!

Marc, the owner of Karmen Apartments, was very friendly and helpful.

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
