Walper Hotel was nice with clean rooms, comfortable and clean bed. Good location in downtown Kitchener, and a very nice buffet breakfast. The only thing I would complain is not having a safe box in the room neither with the front desk. Overall I enjoyed my stay there.

I used Hotwire and got this hotel for a school reunion for U of W. I have always gotten the Radisson before and this time I knew it was not the Radisson when I booked it. This hotel is a old historic hotel that was built in the 1890's and the 5th floor where we stayed was added on in... More

Got to the hotel & asked for a QUIET room - as I almost always do (they were not overly booked up). The girl who check me in assured me it was a quiet room. That was around 1 PM. Around 5 PM I heard piped music - in my room. (I couldn't find the source.) I check the hallways... More

I stayed in the Walper Hotel for five nights when I needed a temporary accommodation on a longer business trip. I was booking late, on a busy holiday weekend, and it was one of the cheapest hotels available in town (sic!). I was truly pleasantly surprised. It was the best hotel I used in the region so far (but I... More

Very nice quaint hotel. Very historic, good location, walking distance to many downtown businesses. The room, although recently updated, still felt a little dated. I am sure they are trying to maintain a historical presence. Neat bathroom and very old light fixtures in the room.
