Verified Reviews of The Walper Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Walper hotel"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The room needs to be redone badly....the carpet was dirty, the clean towels in the bathroom had hair on them and we were woken with a terrible noise from the room above us. Terrible experience would not stay there again.
