Vrabac Guesthouse, handmade hosting

Practical like a hotel, warm like a home

The Area

Vrabac Guesthouse is located in the heart of old Barcelona, in the Gothic Quarter. 3 minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya and the world famous Ramblas with its human statues, shops, theaters and restaurants.

The Gothic Quarter where Vrabac is located, during the day is a hive of activity and very lively. You can see people of all cultures stroll around and enjoy the pleasures of the area.

The Gothic is the perfect place to experience the magic of the night in Barcelona: narrow streets, interesting bars to drink a glass of Rioja wine, Catalan tapas and live music.

Vrabac's philosophy

Practical like a hotel, warm like a home. In Vrabac you can enjoy daily and weekly rooms for rent in a private flat.

Vrabac is a Guesthouse, not a Hotel. However our philosophy is to give you all the facilities of a hotel but to make feel you welcome, safe and well cared for like at home.

We are extremely conscientious of our environment and encourage responsible behaviors concerning food and energy issues.

Vrabac is a tolerant and open-minded place. Gay friendly. Our Guest Family and Friends return year after year. Spring, summer, fall and winter, our returning friends always say, 'It's so good to be back!.

Our staff is available and eager to help you plan your activities during your stay. They'll provide you with area maps and brochures and are very helpful with tour recommendations or dinner reservations.

The House

Vrabac Guesthouse is a traditional hosting site, made with love.

It occupies an old house. We have preserved modernist period details such as floors, original woodwork S XIX, handmade ceilings and much of the interior decoration.

Arriving at Vrabac you will immerse yourself in an oasis of warmth and peace that caresses your senses: comfortable rooms, friendly service that will make you feel pampered and at home. The peace of Vrabac contrasts with the life and animation that exists in the surrounding streets.

Every morning you have the chance to enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet, while the sun pours through the windows of the room and winks at you.

Your feet will transit tiles with a thousand stories of love, freedom, research, art.

Vrabac's furniture has a great history. Many of the furnishings are handcrafted by Catalan master carpenters, others furniture have been bought at flea markets or vintage shops in different parts of the world. They are objects with a story to tell, they have been recycled, and they have been returned to life so that you enjoy them.

Throughout the house you can see original artwork, the art encourages you to see the world through different eyes.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Location is by far the best! Centre of the city and 5 min walk to both Placa de Catalunya and Liceu stations. Close to bars, restaurants and cafes and not to mention abundant stores for shopping.

The interior coordination of the room, dining room and other parts of the guesthouse was beautiful. Loved the candle lit breakfast in the beautifully decorated dining room. The downside of our room were the lights; we didn't have much light and it somehow did not turn on after our last switch off so we only had one light bulb by our bed and the light in the shower room (which was very dark also).

Breakfast was reasonable, but with the price paid, it could do better with variety?...but food was all you can eat, so there's no problem with the amount.

With no elevator, it was a workout for us to take our heavy suite cases up to our room (we stayed on the 4th floor; the guest house is from 2nd - 4th floor) and walking up the stairs after a long day of Barcelona walking, it was a little painful...but if you like exercise, its there for free of charge! For elderly guests, it might be too much workout.

People were flexible and friendly.

Overall, a fun stay with fabulous location.

Our stay at Vrabac was great. We had some issues due to the volcanic ash but the staff were really helpful and were waiting for us when we arrived. Our room was clean and spacious and the bathroom had everything we needed. The breakfasts were fantastic and even included a freshly boiled egg which was a nice treat. There was also free internet and lots of books on Barcelona and Spain in a few languages which was really handy. It's a really cool place to stay and we'll definitely be coming back.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We were absolutely amazed by the warm welcoming, elegant interior and the perfect location - just off La Rambla. The room facing the street was quite noisy at night, but we did not come to Barcelona to sleep (earplugs did the job). Our room was on the top floor, our heavy bags were carried upastairs when we arrived. Breakfast was really nice as well as free tapas on the first night. Candles, flowers, antique furniture and dimmed lights created the unforgettable atmosphere. Internet connection did not work in our room (hence the four stars for facilities), but we could use the computer in the lounge anytime. When it rains in Barcelona, it usually pours - we found spare umbrellas quite usefull.
Thank you Vrabac! Muchas Gracias! :)

In the middle of everything, but still very quiet/peaceful (there were a room or two facing the street, I imagine those are louder). Really nice people. Tons of character.

A very pleasant guesthouse in the old center of Barcelona, with an unique ambiance, that invites you to take a moment of rest during your stay in that busy town. Good breakfast and helpful service. The building is a little bit noisy, not from outside, but you can hear the other guests. We didn't have any reason to complain. The guesthouse will mainly attract quiet people.
