The best way it to flag the listings to booking.com. You can do this, by going directly on to the listings and clicking the little flag icon 'Report this listing' and this will go directly to a team within booking.com who will look into it further.
I am sorry that you've to experience that.
We've all experienced less than perfect and/or unfair reviews. I recently received a 3 because I wasn't located in town - which is clearly stated in my description. I've also recieved 'unclean' kitchen remarks and scores because I was cooking dinner when guests arrived. There is nothing you can do about the review. However your response to the review speaks to your professionalism and the type of host you are. A negative host response can deter guests from booking so keep your response factual, non-emotional and positive.
Keep on being positive.
All the best !

How many OTAs you are tied up with ?
If you are not on more then 2 or 3 OTA's then I would advice you to manage it manually and by syncing your calendars. Because its an additional cost.
However if you are present and visible on more OTA's then Staah , Ezeecentrix, Netpax, Reseliva are good option.
