Great hotel, cool, different, loved it. Wish you could find hotels like this in more cities, so much better than the big chains! Well equipped room, tiny bathroom but with a great shower. Great bar downstairs. Attended a wedding and the facilities were great!

We stayed here recently for a wedding in kitchener. Staff was lovely and overall hotel was gorgeous. Main issue was that our room was tiny. I know that it's a "unique hotel" and "every room is different" but this was so small as to be non-functional. There wasn't a towel rack in the bathroom (not enough room) and zero counter or storage space in the bathroom. It was difficult to even walk around the room due to how small it was. There was an armoire where you could hang SOME clothes but no real storage space to speak of. Considering that we saw other rooms with walk in closets, large arm chairs, etc for the same price as ours......that was really annoying. Those rooms should be reconfigured somehow to make them more functional. It was a major problem.

Also we didn't get fresh towels our second day and had to hunt them down, which was necessary since we could not hang ours to dry.

Overall lovely hotel and great location, but room size would deter me from ever recommending this hotel unfortunately.

I stayed at the Walper for a business trip in Kitchener. The hotel is beautiful - a combination of old and new. Service was great, rooms were clean, and amenities were top notch. Anyone traveling to DT Kitchener should definitely consider!

This is a very nice, unique hotel, with large, well decorated and furnished rooms. The staff is very nice and helpful. It's located in a great location in downtown Kitchener. And the price was extremely reasonable for such a nice, upscale hotel.

However, I'd suggest fixing a few problems. The thermostats in the rooms weren't working during the first real hot spell of the summer. My thermostat stayed at 25 degrees Celsius, and every time I tried to lower the temperature, it would ignore my input and go back to 25 degrees, which was uncomfortably warm. I talked multiple times with the front desk staff, who couldn't figure out how to fix it. Eventually they said it was a known problem an engineer was working on it. At one point they seemed to fix the problem, but then it quickly went back to 25 degrees. So, no matter how nice the hotel was, something like this just ruins the experience.

The other problem was the poorly designed "smart TVs." I work in technology and it took myself and someone from the front desk more than 5 minutes to figure out how to turn on the TV. Literally, a very nice employee had to come to my room and fumble around for five minutes before he happened to press something on the back that turned on the TV. The next night I figured it out myself after about five minutes of trial and error. Of course, the hotel didn't design these TVs, but it shouldn't be such a chore to turn on a TV.

So, overall a very nice hotel, but I'd suggest working hard to fix these two problems. Guests should t have to deal with these issues.
