I love olde worlde understated charm and elegance with a modern service and the Imperial Hotel delivers. From its large front doors, carpet and chandeliers, the Imperial sets the scene. Staff everywhere were professional and friendly. Being a hotel from last 200 years, the carpeted corridors are wide and our bedroom was on the small side ( classic twin -... More

Had booked room for night as had day surgery at hospital in Cork and didn't feel up to traveling home that night. Told staff at desk I would be grateful for a quiet room as I needed to rest. They assured me that was no problem. They put me in a room next to a room that was being renovated!... More

While the hotel is in a great location - the city center of Cork - it's really nothing special to write home about. The room was very small and for some reason they had winter comforters on the beds in the summer time. Reception was helpful but parking was anything but convenient. You have to park on the other side... More

Great central hotel close to all Corks attractions. Clean and comfortable with great staff who were very helpful. We arrived early for check in and was able to get into the room earlier than the advised time which was greatly appreciated after a long overnight journey.

This hotels greatest asset is their well trained, very friendly, hard working staff, I did not meet one staff member who disappointed me and this is a rarity these days. The staff couldn't do enough for us during our stay and we would definitely recommend... More

This hotel is very well done. The room was large and nicely furnished. The reception staff was efficient and helpful. They have secure parking, although it is a couple of blocks away. The location is within easy walking distance of many restaurants, bars, and shops. I would definitely go back if I every return to Cork.
