We had 5 nights in the perfectly positioned Karmen Apartments in August. The extraordinarly helpful host - Marc, met us on time, as arranged at the gate of the old city to accompany us to his apartments, and was also a great help with our luggage. Marc is informative about the history, very helpful and friendly. He was also very... More

We spent 10 days in Croatia traveling as a couple, and Dubrovnik was definitely the highlight of our trip! The Karmen apartments were extremely comfortable, and their location in the old town can't be beat. We stayed in apartment #3 which was very charming, while also being equipped with all the modern amenities travelers look for (effective air conditioning, safe,... More

Our family, comprising two young children (2,4), one fussy mum and crowd-averse Dad just returned from a blissful month in Croatia. Dubrovnik was an absolute highlight. We chose to stay at Karmen apartments on the advice of trip Advisor and Lonely planet. It was the perfect choice. Helpful host, supremely clean and character-fills apartment, excellent old town location and able... More

I'd been wanting to visit Dobrovnik and stay at Karmen Apartments ever since reading about both in the NYT more than two years ago. This past August, my son and I had the true pleasure of visiting Dubrovnik, and thanks to the great accommodations--near to just about anything and everything--and the terrific welcome and help of the owner of Karmen...

We were debating whether to stay here for 4 nights, or at the Radisson Blu. We definitely made the right choice. We're a family of 4----2 adults, one 5 year old, and one 2 year old. We stayed on the first floor, room #3. The room was large enough so that the kids didn't kill each other from being cramped.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Apartment 1 (the smallest one) in late July, and what it lacked in in size, it made up for in character. The apartment was dotted with charming artifacts, trinkets and artwork. Marc was extremely courteous and responded to emails promptly. My only regret was arriving a little later than I advised and leaving him... More

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
