At 2am on the second night in the hotel discovered this guy crawling across the bedsheets. After tearing the room apart and not finding any sign of more we shrugged and went back to sleep (with the lights on, as I remembered they were probably photophobic). No bites or infestation eventuated, so maybe this really was the only one.
On nest! At the top of a man-made pole.
