This hotel reminded me of a Holiday Inn. It looked looked like a safe bet, It wasn't.
Our trip to Xalapa would come to a foul end in this hotel. By the second day, my Mexican wife was complaining of insect bites. She thought they were mosquitoes from dinning outdoors. By the third night, she was in distress while I had yet to be bitten, but it was obvious the problem was in the room.
It seemed clean and tidy, but was infested with bedbugs or perhaps fleas. We never learned which. We immediately packed and asked to see the manager.
We were amazed to learn he knew of the problem. He said that rooms in the hotel were being fumigated by the best firm in the city, but he offered nothing to compensate our misery. He put the fumigator on the phone to speak to Patricia who told her all pests had, in fact, been eliminated and demanded to see her bites if we could wait an hour for him to arrive.
We were in no mood for such rubbish. We presented the manager with squished corpses of the pests to show whomever and departed. Thye Manager offerred nothing in the way of compensation and very little sympathy. We seemed to be just another victim, altho able to comunicate our displeasure in Spanish.
Little did we know we were transporting the critters in our suitcases and they would later setup shop in our home. I only got bites, but Patricia contracted <i>Proteus OX-19,</i> typhoid like disease,.
If you must stay in this hotel, first ask if ask if the bed bug problem has been fixed.
