Great location but lacks customer service

I called in the early evening to request extra pillows and blankets. My daughter is pregnant and needed extra for comfort and assistance. We never received them. In addition, the heater was so noisy, it sounded as if someone was banging a bat against the pipes! It was a restless sleep. I received the extra pillow and blanket the NEXT DAY.

Vacations....

This hotel is not handicap friendly. The only access to the hotel is through stairs and I had a lot of trouble to get my luggage in the lobby. The elevators are only for the rooms.

Horrible, horrible, horrible

The staff was friendly and helpful, but the hotel itself is a dump. Your site advertised it as a 3.5 - 4.0 star and thats a joke. This place was herendous and I will NEVER stay there again.

Disappointing and Dirty

We reserved 2 double beds and none where available. My 6'3 son had to sleep on a little cot. Both the tub and the sink had running faucets (the one in the tub finally broke and had to be replaced). Large hair balls in the bathroom. Towels weren't clean. Our floor smelled like mold.

Wellington Hotel

The room was small, the bathroom too small, dim lighting, elevators dirty. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It is rated 3* but should get a 1*.

Good location but not for nights sleep

It is fine if you are tolerant of Old and European style, no frills and noise. People slam the hotel room doors at all hours. All of the water pipes are so loud specifically the sink, toilet and showers. There is no soundproofing and therefore sounds like a curse ship horn when someone starts the shower. The room radiator makes it own interesting set of sound effects. It is kind of scary for teens that are used to modern hotel rooms. There was one small door lock. On the plus side they upgraded the room type after asking to a king bed for no additional charge per night. Would have liked a coffee maker in the room.

Dirty place

Nothing was working there. The Air Conditioner was too noisy, the bathtub was dirty and completely clogged and the TV remote control was not working. The room was so dirty that we could not walk wearing socks on the carpet. There were all kind of debris and nasty things under the bed; I think it was never cleaned. The worst experience ever.

noise heating UNBEARABLE

price fair, rooms poor, breakfast room tiny for the customer number resulting in lines and stressful service. But above all, the heating system was so NOISY that I couldn't get a single good sleeping night! Every half an hour it start clinging and clanging, to climax as if I had someone in the room hitting with a steel hammer! Complained everyday about it, and the only visit I had from maintenance was when the toilette clogged and spilled over (what a dream week...; to be fair, they acted reapidly on this one). Hotelwise I believe this was one of the most uncomfortable trips I ever had.

Horrible. The rooms are falling apart. They are too too small. The room we stayed in you could not even see the light of day from it.
