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

I had the pleasure of staying at the Vrabac Guesthouse during my stay in Barcelona. The Nic was very friendly and helpful, as he stayed open an extra hour due to my plane being delayed. The room was all that I needed; Nothing fancy and clean. It was located in the heart of the gothic district. As soon as you... More

A wonderful, friendly, classy and spiritual place to stay just meters from Las Ramblas. I had a luxury room which was huge and beautifully furnished. The bed was comfortable and I slept wonderfully. The bathroom was great. Breakfasts are amazing with use of local, organic and home made produce. Wonderful hosts and staff. I will be going back!!!

Could not recommend Vrabac guesthouse enough. From the moment I booked Nicolas was in contact with me. Best customer service I had in Europe. The BnB was clean & very nicely decorated. Located in the heart of the gothic quarter it is in the perfect location but somehow masks all the noise so is the perfect hideaway! The breakfast is... More

We have a number of room requirements that are the basis of how we judge where we are staying-location, value, quiet(we tend to sleep in), and comfortable bed, Vrabac was all of these and more, and Nicolas and Frederico set us up for five great nights in Barcelona. One of the unexpected pleasures was that breakfast was served until 11.... More

This quaint guest house is perfectly located in an 18th century building with original tile floors and stained glass windows. Sonya and Nicolas were helpful and gracious hosts. The breakfast spread was fresh and a perfect way to start your day. The rooms are all individually decorated and the memory foam beds provided a great night sleep. I felt like... More
