“Great central location, but nothing else good to say about this hotel.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I stayed here with a group of friends. We needed a central location to stay and we were delighted with how close we were to the theatre where we were going that night. The receptionist couldn't handle the volume of people for a start. The room was basic, but clean, although the bed was too short for my tall boyfriend. The view from the window was dreadful - bins !! Very limited TV and no wifi either. One of the worst things was the noise from the club (called Silence ironically enough) and the street below until the wee small hours - luckily I'd been warned and wore ear plugs. By far the worst thing though is the sign in the bathroom which advises you to run the hot tap for 5 minutes to get hot water. This didn't happen. I ran the shower for ten minutes and it was still cold. Eventually it became tepid and I endured it to wash my hair. My boyfriend found the water did heat up to suit him, but just as he started to enjoy his shower the water turned cold. Appalling. Worse still we paid €80 for the room ! We didn't make it down for breakfast, but my friends who did wished they hadn't ! When we'd met in the bar before we went out we had to ask the bar tender to wash the glasses ! Very unimpressed !! If you want a party hotel and you like tepid showers and rooms in need of modernisation, this is the place for you !!

Myself and my husband stayed there for one night. Found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and beds very comfortable. All drinks 3 euros on the night. Overall I would recommend it.

Room Tip: away from the bars and nightclub.

I stayed in the imperial for 8 nights while on a work trip recently, anyone planning a visit should keep the following few points in mind,
Rooms are clean and basic, unlike some of the other reviewers I found the staff quite friendly and the breakfast quite good.
On the negative side there was no Wii fi available, the tv in the room was not working and the hotel needs a lot of modernisation
* noise level is a problem as the hotel is bang in the middle of town *
There is more expensive accommodation available in the area which would be of a higher standard if that's what your after.
Hope this is of some help..........

A basic hotel with clean rooms & comfy enough beds... but very noisy at the weekend due to the downstairs bar.
Unfortunately some younger guests were very rowdy, belligerent and we had to call security twice.

Room Tip: Not somewhere to stay for a quiet weekend, but brilliant atmosphere in the bar.

The main enterance is tucked away in a side street. Parking is limited. Room is average for a hotel. Had to wait OVER 5 minutes for the hot water to have a shower.
The room was "well lived in", its in need of a make over.
Didn't eat there, only had breakfast which was good. Better hotels in the area.
