Everything about the hotel is a throw back to more glamorous times. Huge Murano glass chandaliers and orginal black and white tiled floors. Absolutely gorgeous in everyway. Our good friends wedding was the reason to choose this hotel as our base for the event and it was such a treat. The staff were attentive and friendly. The breakfasts were served... More

It is clear from the moment you pull up to the Imperiale that it has aspirations of grandeur. From the moment you enter you realise that it cant quite live up to those aspirations but that is what gives it its charm. An impressive property which, like many Italian hotels, hearkens back to a slightly by-gone era, and could do... More

Our stay at the Imperiale Palace Hotel was very nice overall. Upon arrival we had a very smooth check in and the staff were polite and helpful. When reaching the room we noticed that it was kinda small compared to what we had hoped for, but we were also traveling with a baby hence that took up some additional space.... More

Our room had an amazing view and was a good size. Extremely clean and very comfortable. The desk staff were very friendly... More

From the moment you arrive at Imperiale you know you are in for a treat. The building is beautiful and perched overlooking the bay at Santa Margherita - really a fabulous location. The hotel itself is classically decorated - sparkling marble floors, glass chandeliers and fresco ceilings all over the public areas. Staff are very friendly, courteous, discrete and helpful...

We booked this hotel at the last minute and I am so glad I never read the reviews as it may have put me off. We have just spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel and can not fault the location, room or staff. We had a beautiful room with a balcony and gorgeous view. The room was very spacious... More

As we entered we announced to reception that we having a look around and was that ok. An older gentlemen on the desk welcomed us. We were then followed around twice by a very... More

the name absolutely matches this place. Very nice building with spacious rooms. Views are stunning as well if you have a sea side room. Breakfast is very nice though prices for Omelettes, scrambled eggs are a bit over the top. The restaurant itself is very nice.

From the exterior this hotel is stunning. When we got to our room after a long day of sight seeing, we were very disappointed. Our room was a tiny box with barely a window. The noise was so loud, the bed felt old and hard. I can't believe this is 5 star. We stayed in camogli at cenobio del dogi... More
