I am staying in a hotel in Genova for three more nights. The hotel is prepaid by my grant, and leaving is something I don't want.

Last night an insect bit me, and for the first time in my life I got a bruised right hand. Today I requested a room change, since there is no way to get in there again, I will be too afraid. The change was made, but I was told that they are fully booked.

At that time, I was in pain and very eager to get my medicine. As a result, I didn't really process what she told me.

Now, I am thinking the next guest(s), that must be placed there. I feel guilty. Is there anything I can do? It seems to me that I have no options now to protect the next people from that nasty insect.

  • You can knock on the door and let the person know if they put someone there. – Augustine of Hippo Jul 24 '18 at 14:01
  • @The Zealot do you think this is a good idea? It might be too direct for them. Moreover, the other room is an another room, so I feel like I should hide from the staff, if they find me in a wrong floor. However, this is a fair trade off z so I would suggest you to post an answer. – gsamaras Jul 24 '18 at 14:04

    I would think that the cleaning staff of the hotel would find and dispose of the insect when they cleaned the room, especially if you informed the front desk staff that it was there. – Michael Seifert Jul 24 '18 at 14:23
  • @Michael Seifert, that would be my hope. How about I ask tomorrow the reception, in a friendly way, if they got rid of it. What do you think? – gsamaras Jul 24 '18 at 14:33
  • @gsamaras By ‘insect’ do you mean something out of the ordinary flying / crawling in the room or something in the bed (eg fleas)? I’d expect most people to be prepared with insect repellant for typical wildlife such as mosquitoes and wouldn’t really expect the hotel to be able to do much about it, but I’d be very annoyed to be bitten by fleas in the bed and would complain to the hotel management immediately – Traveller Jul 24 '18 at 14:36
