We stayed at Karmen Apartments in mid-May, and can definitely say that this accommodation was the best we experienced in our entire European vacation. The owner, Marc van Bloemen, could be the unofficial mayor of Dubrovnik, as he has now lived here 42 years. He is a congenial host who has a wealth of information about old town and Croatia,... More

I am very picky when it comes to accomodation and like luxury but not big business hotels. I like to feel like a guest not a customer. I demand it to be very very clean and lack unpleasant odeurs. I also want it to be nicely decorated.Karen is close to perfect. Great location, lovely small apartments and a great host!... More

A friend and I shared apartment 2 for 3 nights in May. Marc was an attentive host even before we got to Dubrovnik, staying in touch by email and helping us secure a ride from the airport. Marc met us at the gate to the old town and cheerfully walked us to the apartment, helping us with our luggage (no... More

We discovered Karmen Apartments through the lonely planet and found ourselves the most wonderful central nest for our stay in Dubrovnic. Marc's family moved to Croatia from England to open an art dealership when he was really young. As such communication with Marc was really great as he is actually a great combo of being an English speak as well... More

I discovered Karmen Apartments in Lonely Planet's Eastern Europe guide. The recommendation was absolutely justified. The apartments are perfectly located near the port in the old city. The apartment we hade was very comfortable and tastefully appointed. Mark was vey communicative and was happy to be paid in my home currency ($AUD). Although pretty expensive at €175 per night, I...

The Karmen Apartments were excellent! We had a lovely balcony and spacious bedroom. We loved being so centrally located and within the city walls. Marc was a very gracious host, arranging a ride from the airport and reserving bus tickets for our departure. He had great advice about local attractions as well. All in all, a wonderful place to stay... More

We went to the Karmen Apartments in July 2014 and the rooms could not be more quaint, convenient, cleaner, or easy to find (a five minute walk from Pile Gate). Marc, the owner, is very hospitable and available if help is needed (he lives upstairs and is always a phone call away). Dubrovnik is subject to a lot of cruise... More

Karmen Apartments is a quaint apartment ideally located inside the walled City of Dubrovnik. We utilized two apartments for 3 nights and found them clean and outfitted with everything you need for your stay. I am not sure whether we were so comfortable there because of the homey decor or the warmth of our host Marc. Not often you meet... More

We stayed in apartment two for one week in June because of its excellent location overlooking the port. Marc the owner was extremely welcoming and informed us of the best spots in town. The apartment was very homely and well equipped with everything you could possibly need! We utilised the kitchen facilities and found it to be more than adequate.... More

I have never felt so comfortable in holiday accommodation before! We stayed in apartment 3 for 3 nights. So much care had been taken to make the apartment homely yet stylish, and to cater for every possible need. And so clean! The location in the old town is just perfect; in a quiet spot, but just around the corner from... More
