I first stayed one night at this hotel with my son, on my way in from Frankfurt. I have stayed in the Monte Carlo in the past and sort of made it my 'pied a terre' since it is so conveniently located in the heart of the city. I have always raved about this place for its convenience, its charm of the past, and its prices. Well, this time, I learned that the owners had changed and the prices had changed too, but at 320 pesos a night for two ($27 Cdn or US) it is still a good deal. However, there was a mouse in the room and it bothered me all night. As I woke up early, due to the jetlag, I could hear a scratching noise coming from around the wardrobe, and after investigating with my flashlight, I found a live mouse trapped on a styrofoam plate that had been previously covered with glue. As we checked out early that morning, we left the live animal and its platter on the front desk... Taking it as a one time issue, we checked in again about ten days later before leaving the city. Well, this time, we were both attacked with bed bugs. Even though the sheets were clean, the banklets were more than 'sus' and the floor seemed like it had not been vaccumed in days. We were confused on the first night as we also got bitten by mosquitos, but on the second night, we definitely realized there were bed bugs all over the room, bed and carpet alike... We did mention the problem to the front desk the day of our departure, and before we checked out at noon, someone had already come and sprayed the mattresses with some sort of insect repellant, but, is this efficient...? Taking it from the comments I can read above, it seems to me the whole hotel has that problem. However, before leaving the hotel that day, we talked to some gringos in the lobby and asked them if they had any similar problem and they said they hadn't. So..., if you want to take a chance, flip a coin and go for it because I feel the hotel should not be a write off. Things might improve with time.
