appartement vraiment fantastique ainsi que leur proprietaire fortement recommande
Wow! What an extraordinary place to stay. The “residence” with its different architectural elements is in real even better than on the pictures. The interior is arranged with a huge love for aesthetics and a unerring sense for the detail, which is evidence of an excellent taste. Makes you feel comfortable at first sight. We highly recommend this place.
However, the top of all are the hosts: Sean, Frances and John Henry. They are very open-minded, hearty and loveable persons who made our stay unforgettable. We're looking forward to meet them – and Casa Ramos – again, when we'll stay in Barcelona next time.
Fantastic Place! Fantastic hosts! We would love to come back sometime.
Architect's flat is well beyond a place to stay, it is a place to experience while in Barcelona! You will take a bit of a journey back in time, while still being able to enjoy some modern conveniences. Sean and his family have earned their Super Host designation for their warmth, caring and generosity. Undoubtedly, one of the highlights was having the opportunity to enjoy an evening of wine and tapas with some friends and our host family in their spacious and serene private garden, a magical memory indeed. The Lesseps neighborhood is easy to navigate for some nearby grocery shopping and cafes, and there is a metro station right out the front door that can get you anywhere in the city, with many of the major things that you will want to do only a few stops down the line. Per Sean's advice, take a taxi to and from the airport, and use the metro for all of your inner-city destinations. We have fallen in love with our first trip to Barcelona, have vowed to return, and will be seeking to live the dream again in Architect's Flat.

The pictures of the apartment online were fantastic but didn't compare to the magnificence of the reality. Despite its grandeur, it felt like a real home. The family went out of their way to make our stay memorable, comfortable and special. Can't recommend highly enough.
This was the most amazing experience and stay. Sean and John Enrique and Frances were the best (the best!) host. We are so fortunate to have selected this amazing house... because we now have new friends!
The flat is expansive, interesting, beautiful and the perfect urban retreat. Every room is a treat for the eyes! The terrace, which looks out over an important street in Barcelona, is perfect for coffee or early evening (or late evening) wine. We did both.
The building itself is remarkable.... we stood outside more than once... just to appreciate the facade.
The location can't be beat... You can walk to Park Guell... or to a dozen tapas bar... make that two dozen.
Thanks again to Sean... who helped us along the way... even jumping in our car to get us to the parking garage. And to John Enrique and Frances for inviting us into their home. We'll be back soon to visit.
The apartment and hosts were amazing. We had such a wonderful time in Barcelona thanks to the helpful advice given to us by Sean and Juan Enrique and the beautiful Francis. They were welcoming and always made us feel like we belonged.
The apartment was spacious, beautiful and just like the pictures.
The only place to stay in Barcelona !
Dit appartement is een absolute aanrader! Alles wat de andere gasten hebben geschreven is helemaal waar. Het gebouw is een echte modernista, artistiek en met smaak ingericht. Het huis is als filmdecor gebruikt en je waant je op z'n minst Penelope Cruz als je hier verblijft. De hoge plafonds, het glimmende parket en het design zijn echt geweldig. Het appartement is groot en comfortabel. Het metrostation Lesseps ligt letterlijk voor je deur. Vanaf dit station sta je via de groene lijn in twee haltes voor het Casa Mila en kun je even blijven zitten tot de Rambla of even verder s'avonds naar de magische fontein. Het parc Guell ligt op loopafstand. De wijk Garcia kent een aantal goede restaurants waar wij heerlijk gegeten hebben. Het was heerlijk om na een dag in de stad een duik te nemen in het zwembad en nog even na te genieten van de laatste zonnestralen in de tuin. Sean reageert gelijk op je berichten en is zeer behulpzaam. Maar het beste van het huis zijn de eigenaren, de ouders van Sean, Francis en Juan Enrique. Ze zijn uitzonderlijk gastvrij en geven je een heel bijzonder warm welkom en staan altijd voor je klaar. Fantastische lieve mensen! Muchas gracias, thank you so much, Francis en Juan Enrique, you made our stay very special!
sean is a great host
we very munch enjoyed the company of his family
the house is an architectural treasure and within easy reach from quell park and the rest of barcelona
We had a wonderful weekend at Sean's house. As Sean was away we were looked after by his delightful father John Henry. The flat is quite extraordinary with very high ceilings, beautiful windows and quirky details. Although we were only there a short time, we did spend a lot of the time enjoying the apartment and will definitely return for a longer stay.
thanks again for your stay. In hope to see you again soon.
Ha sido una muy buena experiencia con Sean y su novia. Muy amables y educados, siempre sonreientes y respectosos. Los consejo sin duda.
Muchas gracias y hasta pronto.
Sean's flat is just amazing. One of the rooms seems to come from the 1001 nights. The others are great examples of well conserved architecture. It's the kind of places that could easily be turned into a museum! I don't think there are many other places like that in Barcelona.
And Sean is an amazing host, as an architect, he's able to walk you through the place explaining its history as well as great details about the flat's structure, architecture and details.
Last but not least, it's always fun to share a bier or a dinner with him!
