        Hotel was a disgrace, fire alarm went off about 6 times on Saturday night and also the gas went off at 7 A.m in the morning setting the fire alarm off again. Will never stay here again!!!!!

      • Couple
        5.8

        Location and staff were very nice.

        Room was far too hot, very noisy at the back of the hotel where we were situated. Had to have window open while sleeping because of the heat. Hotel needs to be updated. Breakfast was extremely poor

      • Couple
        8.2

        The staff were very helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the offer of an ice-bucket from the bar. The breakfast wasn't fancy, but we enjoyed all the choices and especially that it was offered until 11:00 a.m. The room had great windows that blocked the street noise and the room was spacious. Great stay!

        Medium sized functional room, perfect bed, away from streetnoise and only 3 minutes to a dart trainstation. Exactly what a cityhotel shall be.

      • Couple
        8.2

        Very central to everything. Our room was large, spacious and very clean.

        There can be alot of noise from about 1-3:30am with revellers coming out of nearby pubs and clubs. It didn't really affect us, but not the place to stay if you want a quiet weekend away.

      • Couple

        i found it very expencive paying 300 euro for 2 nights with no cooked breakfast

        Location. Room was lovely and clean. Good value for money. would return.

        They could do something about the toilets off the bar. Although they were clean there was a terrible smell.

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Was a great stay at the imperial hotel never a fault with the hotel the staff especially the lady at reception leona,i believe her name was, was more then helpful when we checked in and is an asset to the hotel. Lovely stay and would highly recommend the hotel to friends.

        Could not find any problems with the hotel maybe some staff were understressed(barstaff) due to the busy weekend but it is understandable in the hospility industry.

        Very convenient !

        We had asked for a Double Room and Single Room but ended up getting three single beds.

        its location

        The cleaning staff tried to check the room at 1040 and I was afraid they would walk in on me. I don't know why they couldn't simply check who had checked out before attempting to clean

      • Single

        It was clean, in the heart of Galway, good breakfast buffet, it was good value.

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        location was brilliant. just located at the top of Eyre square beside shop street. walking distance for shops bars and restaurants. althought we didnt eat in the hotel the menu was very good and it was very busy. room was very clean and cosy. i would definatly recommend it.

        I found the staff at reception very unfriendly and unhelpful when we checked in.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Overall nice accomadations. However all three rooms were not clean. Even my 20 something's who frequently stay at hostels commented that he rooms were not very clean. Easy fix by the management to make this a great place to stay.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        We arrived at the hotel on m-bikes, it looked a bit run down , I asked a member of staff were can we park the bikes.We were sent round the back and told to park in the storage room which was massive, warm & secure, fantastic for motor cyclists when we got inside the hotel it was modern clean reception very friendly rooms are quite big, piping hot water, breakfast plenty to choice food in bar good, very central could not fault it would stay there again, some good pubs with live music just down the road ,the irish are very friendly

        Nothing, it was very good
