I was with a tour when I stayed at the Imperial. I was really impressed. The place is funky in design - long bending hallways to get to some of the rooms which to me added to its charms. It is ideally located for the hubbub of the old part of the city and its harbor and that being said it can also be a little loud with the noises of the street, although maybe it was in part because of the Volvo Ocean Race which had just completed and the hurling championship underway. Easy walking to many shops, restaurants, pubs, and the waterfront.. lovely walk along the river is not far. The food was great, the staff warm and welcoming..
