Bedbugs (or bed bugs) are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. They often enter your home undetected in luggage, clothing, and used beds or couches. Bedbugs
Bed bugs normally start infestations by someone bringing them home. A visitor who has luggage from a hotel are often culprits. They could have hidden in that luggage for a year and when Uncle Billy visits, you could have an infestation in your house almost immediately.
While looking for Paris hotels, at 120+ euros we still see bed bugs problems. Even some 4 star hotels are not immune. We can choose only 300+ euros hotels to reduce the risks, but the high expenses would discourage us from going to Paris more often or staying longer.
in the US there is a site that lists hotels with bed bug complaints but I don't know one for Paris The only time we ever encountered bed bugs was 8 years ago in a very nice boutique hotel in Amsterdam -- worst experience ever. Luckily we did not seem to import them.
Eradicating Bed Bugs in Paris. by Heather Stimmler-Hall Friday, October 2, 2015. Last week a friend of mine in Paris emailed in a panic: her neighbor told her he had bedbugs, and she already found a few suspicious bites on her arms. I told her not to freak out until she was 100% sure they were bedbug bites. But I was already freaking out for her.
They obviously don't know, or care, how hard it is to eradicate bed bugs from a hotel. Never stay at Hotel Grand de Turin in Paris, France unless you enjoy field study in entomology.
