We stayed at the end of August in the compact apartment 4. Marc met us after the taxi ride from the airport and showed us the shops and advised on local restaurants. Apartment was lovely and as described on his web site and is decorated to make you feel at home. Great location and we enjoyed it very much. No...

Apartment is located right at the centre of the old town with a view of the harbour. Personal service from the owner who lives above the apartments. Idea spot for the old town and visits to nearby islands. Unrivalled choice of local restaurants and shopping.

We rented app#4 for a week in late July this year. The place have perfect location! we were just steps from the town squire in the Old Town, the harbor, and a nice pier for swimming. The host was very welcoming and service minded at all times. Will go back? Yes! Same place, same apartment:) Couple from Norway.

My two-year-old daughter and I stayed here for a very happy week in July...The apartment is brilliantly located, full of character, very comfortable and well equipped (kitchen, books, tourist info...). We felt at home the minute we walked in. Marc's a great host, and you won't find a better spot to explore a beautiful city.

Lovely appartements (we had two), in a house inside the walls and near the harbour. An ideal situation for visiting the city and for taking boats to Lokrum island and others. Marc is a very sympathic host. You can come, we highly recommand you this adress! Bruno, Frédérique and children. Paris

Best apartment we stayed at in Croatia by far: a real treat. Very comfortable bed, well provided apartment, but still with a very homely feel to it. Even has a nice, quiet fridge! Marc a most helpful and informative host. Great location. Highly recommended. Not surprisingly this is often booked up months ahead. Will definitely be back!

Excellent location inside the walls, superb apartment and great hospitality all at a most reasonable price. A quick tip: The apartment is located inside the walls so it is a bit of a walk from the parking: accordingly: pack light. Phil and Rita, San Francisco

We had a great stay at Marcs apartment. The organization was very smooth and apartment is well decorated, very comfortable, perfectly clean,... we just felt like home. The apartment is perfectly located in the old part of Dubrovnik, close to the water and a great base to explore the city. Close to everything that you need including supermarkets, nice restaurants,...

We stayed in the smaller apartment in the building but it was plenty large enough for two people. We were in Dubrovnik during a hot spell, so the air conditioning was a welcome for us. The owner, Marc, has great ideas for places to eat and things to do, but you will find Dubrovnik very easy to manage by foot,...

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
