Got this hotel through the Tourist information on Bank Holiday weekend. The building and décor in the main rooms including the antique lift are amazing. The room was clean but in need of a refurb. We didn't mind too much as we had lived in a tent for the last 3 weeks but I might have been more critical If... More

If you're looking for fin-de siècle French atmosphere without breaking the bank, this is the place. Hotel Imperial saved my life after a spending a horrendous first night in a city centre pigsty (there was a fight outside my door around 1am!), next morning I found this enchanted place and had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming....

It wasn't the best hotel ever, but it did the job. At first, It looked very cute and charming, but we soon learned that it wasn't very modern. Cons: --Only some of us had air conditioning, but it just so happened that it wasn't terribly hot so we got by. --Apparently my room had a 'tiny shower,' as one of... More

A group of 12 people stayed here two nights, and only about half of the rooms we stayed in had air conditioning. The other rooms were so hot we all ended up sleeping on the floors of those who had air conditioning. The water pressure was terrible, it merely trickled out. It made it almost impossible to take a shower.... More

I was surprised when I reached the hotel. Amazing building in a very nice area of Nice. The common areas are so beautiful and the lady running the hotel is very kind. And there is also parking!in fact you can easily do without a car because it is just a few minutes walk both from the old town and the... More

I can't believe that this hotel can continue to function. I've been here 3 times in the last year or so and it's always been very quiet, with an elderly couple running it apparently single-handed. I must admit I love the place: faded glory, certainly, but with a charm and style that more than compensates for the odd down-side. I... More

My family of 5 stayed at Hotel Imperial and we had a double bed and single in one room and two singles in the other room. The room was clean and the air conditioning was awesome!! The shower was small but I think that could be a Europe thing. The rooms were cleaned daily and it was a good location.... More

This hotel was absolutely gorgeous. I was here for a school trip and we all loved it very much. It was unique and pleasant. The room we had was enormous and we had a small balcony as well. Others in my group had larger balconies. The old fashioned elevator was awesome. The wi-fi didn't work very well in the rooms... More

Arrived in Nice at rush hour after driving for 5 hours - tourism information centre sent us to the Hotel Imperial - central location, free parking, very cool inside with high ceilings, stained glass and lots of old world atmosphere - and comfortable beds - great find in Nice!
