Hello, moderators!

When I'm learning the phrasebook, there are some sentences that I don't quite understand, and I list them here:

[Hospital]
薬を飲んで、蕁麻疹ができました。
--> Seemingly it's better: 蕁麻疹がでました instead of できました ?

私は~アレルギーです。
--> May I suggest no to use ~ , but to put some examples in it?
e.g. 魚アレルギーなんです or アスピリンにアレルギーです。
In the same section, there is a phrase 1989年10月8日に生まれました, where a date is used for example. I find that much better for learners. Hopefully you would consider to replace all the sentences with ~ in the whole Phrasebook.

下痢です。
--> Perhaps 下痢をしています is better?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

[Hotel]
今晩部屋を予約していたものです。
--> A Japanese friend says it's better to say 今晩部屋を予約してあるものです。 Is it right?

Wifiは使えますか。
--> The audio reads /weefee/, however I heard Japanese say only /waifai/. Which is correct?

部屋は何階ですか。
--> The English translation is "On what floor". Perhaps it's better "On which floor"?

Do you have any rooms available? 部屋は空いていますか。
--> The Japanese sentence sounds like "Is the room available now?"
Can we say 空いている部屋はありますか ?

この周辺の地図はありますか。Do you have a city map?
--> 周辺の地図 is a vicinity map?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Can you repeat?
繰り返してもれえませんか。
--> My Japanese friend told me it's much better to say もう一度言ってください。 
Or 繰り返し言ってください。
