Well i do like to go to B&B or for Cebit to sleep at people house, but this experience was the worst of all time.
It's pretty simple, my taxi drop me off in front of a building.
That's just a plain building, noone there.
So if you don't have your mobile phone at this point you are screwed already.
I phone to the number mentioned in my reservation.
Some guy answear in the worst english possible, and more or less tell me to wait.
20mn later i call back. I hear in the back a baby crying (so he hasn"'t mooved). he tells me to wait.
another 20mn later...
i call back, noone answear... it gets directly to this answearing machine.
I wait 10mn more... hoping.
And i see a guy and a blonde not looking spanish at all arriving.
At this point i ask the guy about barcelona residence...
he tells me to wait that he'll get me the key.
Then after 5 more mns...
he tells me no more room.
We take a cab to another building... where i finally get a room.
Decent room.
you won't get any receipt.
and i'm pretty sure this wasn't the fuy i had on phone but just a bit of luck in a pretty shitty situation.

The worst thing ?
the last night, some guy did ring because he had booked a room... and obviously all of the appartement i was in were taken.
So this seem to be standard procedure.
Since i've read other reviews like mine, my advice in :
take a real hotel or a place you trust/heard of by friends. Cause barcelona isn't hanover or london, this people are not reliable in any way.

I travelled to barcelona in the 3 dr week of Sep'07, but did not stayed in Bareclona Residence, the reason is I came here on business purpose & my customer stays in Marti De centeless so I satyed in TONA in the Hotel name called 4 carriteres . It was nice hotel with decent breakfast & very competitive rates .
