This 'family-run' hotel needs to pull itself out of the 20th century. It really is like going back in time The staff are friendly enough (especially the lovely night porter, Ron, who was lovely and entertaining) but the whole fabric of the hotel is dated, tired and badly in need on love and attention. The room was clean enough but drab, the bed uncomfortable. But worst of all, as a woman on my own, I did not feel secure in the room as the lock was dodgy and there was only a flimsy bolt for internal security on the door.
The breakfast was OK made all the more interesting by the grandly dressed waiters. Like I said, all a bit last century (but not in a quaint way).
Location-wise, very good. Close to St. Pancras/King's Cross/Bloomsbury.
Value for money? Not so good, you can do better if you search around for late deals. I probably wouldn't stay there again unless I got a really cheap deal.

Offering breathtaking views over London's greatest public square, it reflects every ounce of our dedication to service and value. Like all our hotels, the Imperial combines a remarkable location with the great facilities and friendly service of a family-run business.

Restaurants and cafes offer plenty of choice to families and business travellers alike. Indulge in the intriguing delights of Coffee and Candy.
