This would have been a great place to stay, were it not for one "small" problem: bedbugs. We stayed for two nights and after the first morning, we both noticed we had bites distinctly different from regular bug or mosquito bites. I've had prior experience with bedbugs, and recognized the bites right away; we also found spots of blood on the sheets, serving as further confirmation. When we reported the issue to the management, they immediately dismissed our claims ("It's impossible! You are clearly wrong!"). Then, they abruptly went on the offensive (i.e., accusing us of having brought the bedbugs with us... even though we hadn't seen a single bite before sleeping in their beds). The woman at the reception desk was extremely rude and haughty; at times, condescending. Granted, we were able to convince them to help us dry clean our clothing to ensure we didn't inherit any hitchhikers... but the hotel did so begrudgingly, without apology, and without any indication that they had any intention of taking measures to correct the issue. Disappointing and disruptive enough to have to deal with bedbugs while on vacation... even more disappointing was the way this particular hotel handled the issue.
