Good place. Very nice breakfast. Choose an ensuite room if possible, it's very convenient. Warm and receptive hosts. Rooms are decorated in a subtle way, has a good feel to it. Recommended stay in Barcelona.

This is a true guest house, not a cheap hotel. It occupies two floors of a traditional apartment building right in the middle of all attractions. The owners pay such attention to the details, fresh flowers in the rooms, candles and linen table clothes for breakfast, which is fresh and varied. Not for those wanting an American style hotel or...

This place is fine if you like a tiny, concrete room with a tiny window that opens into the middle of the building so you have a view of (and sound of) the water pipes. Very, very basic. The host, Nicolas, was nice. The breakfast was ok. I read TA reviews before booking this place and thought it would be... More

So much in the middle of town that we sometimes had to wait for an event to complete before going home. A true local apartment building, run by folk with principles - oh how cute - and with excellent taste. A few nights here and you adjust too the Catalan way; late to rise, a gentle start to the day,... More

We stayed five nights in Vrabac. The location is perfect, both in the sense that it is in the middle of the adorably picturesque Gothic quarters, and also because it is only a 10 minute walk from Placa Catalunya where the Aerobus (from the airport) stops. The deluxe double room/suite we stayed in was gorgeous; well furnished, lots of space,... More

This guest house exceeded our expectations! Our room was charming, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious. The staff was very helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we go back to Barcelona.

What a lovely guest house. It was very easy to find with clear directions emailed to us prior to arrival. The hosts were warm, welcoming and very helpful. The facilities provided in the room were excellent and the whole design was well planned. The place was clean and beautifully decorated to a high specification set in an old building. The... More
