Mark and family have an excellent apartment ideally located in a quiet part of busy Dubrovnik. It is adjacent to access to the wall, the harbour area and most restaurants. The apartment is spacious, very clean and quiet. Mark proved to be an excellent host...More

Stayed for a short two nights. Location is excellent, in the old town yet easy to find. We stayed in the smallest room because the others were booked. It's small but has everything we need plus we only used it to sleep, too much to...More

Room was cozy and had everything i could think of that we needed at our fingertips. We particularly enjoyed having the small terrace to sit and drink wine on (Croatian wines are wonderful and hard to find in the U.S.)

About
Description
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 More 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. Less
