My husband and I were on a European trip and had just come from a fancy hotel in Paris. We weren't very familiar with Barcelona, and since we booked on a hostel site, we weren't sure what to expect with Vrabac Guesthouse. When we arrived the airport, we took the Aerobus to Plaza Catalyana. It was about a 5 minute... More

Have just come back from a lovely relaxing stay in Barcelona... Vrabac was perfect, the staff were so accommodating (considering I had accidently booked for the wrong weekend!). Our breakfast was delicious, the location was perfect, and the interior decor was stunning! Will be recommending to all family and friends... and will definitely be back!

Vrabac is a cool little place right in the heart of the Barri Gotic. A beautiful apartment with some lovely original features. It feels like being in your own house. Comprising a number of floors in an apartment building we stayed on the same floor as breakfast and hardly saw another person during the 3 days. The room was front... More

Vrabac is a good choice for a stay in Barcelona if you are looking for a very central location. It is one short block from La Rambla, one block from the Boqueria Market and two short blocks to the Barcelona Cathedral. It is within 3 blocks of different starting points for local walking and tapas tours and shopping is just... More

Hmm. Having had a great stay at the Vrabac before, our expectations were quite high this time. And to begin with, it all seemed to be going right. We were kindly welcomed and introduced to the house by staff. We had reserved, and paid for, a "deluxe" room and were happily awarded the "best room at the Vrabac" - the... More

We were met on arrival by a helpful man who carried our bags up to our room for us, gave us loads on information on the city and the hotel. Breakfast was lovely it consisted off toast, fruit, jams meats and cheese as well... More

Vrabac Guesthouse has all the makings of what could be an unforgettable place to stay. Sadly, it completely misses the mark. To start with the positives, the location cannot be beaten. It is right in the heart of the Gothic district, moments walk from La Rambla, the Cathedral and markets. It is 2 mins walk from the Airport bus which... More

This guesthouse is in a great location on a side road just off La Rambla. Up on the 3rd floor (no lift), it’s a really attractive apartment style accommodation. We initially received a warm welcome.
