Milipedes infested!

We stayed here the one night and had a most unpleasant experience. We were two couples and we took two rooms for one night in early-May 2007. We were drive-up guests and had not booked ahead. We had inspected the hotels in Monemvassia town itself and rejected them all for various reasons. When inspecting our room at the Lazareto, with one double bed and two singles in a loft in a duplex configuration, I noticed three or four millipedes in the bathroom. Harmless, we thought and just scooped them up and threw them out into the garden. We then went out to Monemvassia for dinner (the Lazareto is not in Monemvassia town proper) and returned close to midnight to the hotel. Our room was full of millipedes, there must have been at least thirty there, crawling over the walls, floors, bathroom counter, bathroom floor, and in the bathtub. The only lady on duty at the hotel didn't see what the fuss was about, "They're harmless," she said. Since it was too late to go find another hotel, we accepted her suggestion that she sweep up the crawlies and throw them out -- which she did. We rolled up the rugs in the room and put them against the two doors (we assumed they were coming in from below the doors) and put a towel over the floor drain in the bathroom. Even then, on waking up the next morning, I found a total of 15 millipedes which I flushed down the toilet. One was even on the bed, a couple had found their way up to the loft. I even found a (very tiny) centipede that I killed. Our friends in the adjoining room didn't face this problem and had only three or four milipedes in their room. Ours opened on a patio with the garden beyond so perhaps that is why ours got so infested. To those considering staying here, make sure you are on an upper floor; there were a few upstairs rooms. The only redeeming aspect to our stay there was the price, we got it at a rock-bottom 60 EUROS a room (about a third of their usual rate). If it had not been for the millipedes, it would have been a pleasant place to stay in.
