I read the other comments before booking this hotel, and decided to stay there, paying 60 $ per night for a double room. I agree with the others, the owner is lovely and helpful, the location of the hotel is great, the room large and not hot (in the beginning of June). But there are bedbugs in the beds. These unpleasant insects leave bites that are not immediately itchy but get itchy days after, and in a week have gotten worse and given me continuous itch and now I am on cortisone, antibiotics and something to detoxify the blood. The bedbugs are very hard to see, they live in mattresses, come out only at night, and inject some kind of anaesthetic substance, so you do not feel the bites and they can continue undisturbed for a long time, causing a lot of damage. Now, not everybody reacts the same way, but I wanted to make sure that people know what they are going to find before deciding to stay there.
Two more notes: the beds themselves are VERY uncomfortable, and the bathroom was dirty: we asked for it to be cleaned and they cleaned it in front of us, without using any detergent, just with water.
I hope the owner will read this and take the necessary steps to get rid of these bedbugs.
