Sean was the most wonderful host of the most extraordinary apartment I've seen on my Airbnb travels. Wonderfully situated outdoors of the metro at Lesseps, in a relaxed non touristy neighborhood, you just couldn't do better. Sean provided food on our arrival, tips on Barcelona, and even lent us his car for a day! He's a terrific guy who, as an architect himself, is extremely knowledgeable of all the wonders of his most interesting city. And the apartment itself is the most extraordinary thing. As seen in Almodovar's "All about my mother" it is as Spanish as the director himself. Very, very highly recommended.
Wow, wow, wow!! We had the most amazing stay in a very beautiful and special apartment in the heart of Barcelona. If you appreciate architecture and design you will absolutely love this apartment. It's spacious and elegant and very grand, we loved every minute of our short stay here and were in awe with the place. Not only that but the owners, Sean who was excellent with correspondence from the moment we booked met us with a big smile on check-in. He is passionate about the apartment and told us so many interesting things about its design and history. We also watched the movie that is available for watching in which the apartment is used in the movie. Sean is a top notch host and that's for sure. We also had the pleasure to meet his parents who live on the other side of the building and well, they could not of being nicer. Wonderful people, lovely lovely family and an incredible place. We, as hosts ourselves cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. Thank you!
We could not have had a better time in Barcelona. The apartment is truly special - how often do you get to stay in an apartment designed by a historically significant architect with beautiful tapestries on the wall? But even better than the apartment was the welcome by Sean, Frances and John Henry. They graciously and generously shared their magnificent home and Sean's enthusiasm for Barcelona and it's architecture was catching.
On the location and logistics front, the Lesseps metro station is less than 20 steps from the front door. The lovely area of Gracia is an easy walk away for beautiful dinners. And the rest of Barcelona is just a metro ride away.
Thank you Sean.
Thanks so much for everything. It was such a great time.
We will come back...
Take good care all of you.
Best Regards to your Mum & Dad.
