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.

HOW TO GET TO VRABAC

From Barcelona airport take the Aerobus until Plaça Catalunya station. Once there you have to walk straight down las Ramblas, in direction to the sea. After some 200m you will see Portaferrisa street on your left side. You have to turn left and walk 50 m. until # 14 (a colourfully door between a clothes shop called 'Mango TOUCH' and a perfumery called 'Júlia').

We strongly recommend you NOT to take the train. The Train Station is quite far from the city center and there is not good connections to get to Vrabac from there. Besides there is just one train every 30 minutes and it leaves only from Terminal 2 at BCN AIrport.

A taxi from the airport will charge you around 35 Euros.
