          To: Lodge in the city, wellington Hello from Austria! I stayed in your house in November 10th 2015. We ordered a double room and as we checed in, we first payed the room. As we walked up the stairs and saw the room - it was the wrong one ! We could not take this room - it was terrible - it was a dorm. Some days later we also stayed in your house on the Camper - parking and were very satisfied !! So we got the deposit back - but not the 55.- for the room. So i try again to get my money back. Please send me my money back - to my credit card: MASTER Card: 5173 3735 5819 7514 12/18 Heinz Laengle Or my bank account: IBAN: DE0751 2308 0026 2233 5839 BIC: WIREDEMMXXX Or my other bank account: IBAN:AT3203900001903921 BIC: RLNWARWWAUE Please contact me for any questions. Greetings, Heinz Längle I have already sent you the copy of your confirmation. Bereich mit Anhängen Vorschau für Anhang "Scan_20151211_132754.jpg" ansehen [Bild]
