Everything upon everything about the Vrabac Guesthouse was perfect; all boxes were checked - location is convenient and easily accessible being a second off Las Ramblas and within walking distance of anywhere. Staff went above and beyond to make my mother and I feel comfortable and ease; they struck a perfect balance between helpful host and banterous mate. The breakfast... More

The staff was more than helpful when I was setting up our trip with directions to & from the airport. Our stay was great. Clean room. A great breakfast was served. The price was reasonable. We loved Barcelona!!! I would highly recommend.

We were recommended this lovely place by some acquaintances back home in Norway. They told us about this resort of beauty, harmony and calmness, located just in the heart of the lively and vibrating city of Barcelona. All our expectations were met. FROM the nice and tender smell from the scented candles that embraced us in an agreeable way, to... More

Staff and very friendly and helpful. The location is amazing. The breakfast provided daily is all cooked fresh and is fantastic. A good sample of Spanish and other European breakfast foods. Our room was looking a bit tired but, apparently, it is all being renovated. Would definitely recommend.

My girlfriend and I had a good stay at Vrabac Guesthouse. It is a no thrills guesthouse in central Barcelona just off La Rambla street. It is a clean, ecologically friendly property and the staff are all nice to interact with. In many ways it feels like a nice hostel and is suitable for couples, friends & solo travelers.

I stayed in one of the smaller rooms at P level (2nd floor) with separate bathroom a few meters away from the bedroom. The room had a safe for valuables and water heater for instant coffee or tea. At first I found the bed too firm, but next night I didn't notice. I slept very well, although I couldn't help... More

We arrived at around midnight and Nicolas was there waiting for us and even helped me find the guesthouse when I called him at 11:30 or so. When we arrived, Nicolas took the time to give us a quick overview of the city and pull out a few maps, we found that to be extremely helpful. He also gave us... More

Vrabac is centrally located in a pedestrian street of La Rambla. Yet quiet at the evenings and at night. We had no trouble of noise from outside in our room . Only when other guests were noisy in the hall on arrival at night, we could hear it in our room. On arrival we were welcomed by the hostess and... More

Vrabac is a mixed bag. It has a lot to commend it: a good location, clean rooms, air conditioning, a good breakfast. There are some inconveniences, such as the 80 steps up to the room (which is a lot with a suitcase!) and the absence of staff on site at all times. The most annoying inconvenience was the shower, which... More

Most of the negative reviews here seem to have unrealistic expectations. It's a guesthouse, so service is minimal and rooms clean and functional, though our window opened into the light well so not much fresh air or light. Check in was welcoming. Breakfast is good, though if you go in before 9am you may get a hard time. You can't... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
