3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed in this hotel for one night over the weekend. There was two girls on the desk when we were checking in,both very friendly and were very helpful. They gave us lots of recommendations of places to go. We stayed in room 310 which was large room with a little seating area. The room was very clean with a nice sized bathroom. The hotel is in a perfect location very central. The only thing I would say if I had to nit pick is the water pressure in the shower wasn't very strong but we would definitely stay again.

Well located, breakfast was good with decent selection. However, the building itself is very squeaky. The floors creak in a lot of areas making the corridors loud at night, more so on the Saturday night we were there. Other than that you kind of get what you pay for.

Only stayed for one night hotel is brilliantly located right in the centre of things. The breakfast was lovely with a good selection. Although the room was a bit dated it was really clean. My only problem was there was only one window in the corner of the room so it was really dark.

I only spent one night but the hotel is perfectly situated right across from Eyre square. Very easy to get to and everything is within walking distance, including shops, restaurants and the all important bus stations. The hotel room was very neat and bathroom was spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the morning was decent too.

The Hotel was just ok but only cost 99 euro and is bang on eyre square so really central. Check out is noon so that's a plus. Breakfast was continental and really fresh and tasty. Room small and compact but clean. Dated but warm. It was fine. My issue was check in. The girl was friendly. The guy who seemed to be in charge wasn't very welcoming. He looked busy and not welcoming at all. It felt like I was checking into a hostel and not an hotel. I would have given a 4/5 if he had at least tried. However I would stay here again. It's cheap. It's central. It's Galway.

I stayed here just for one night after another hotel let me down been overbooked. Anyway what a welcome very friendly efficent staff explained all the hotels facilities wtc. Room was comfy only issue was the annoying taxi rank outside were drivers fighting with each other. But thats not the hotels fault. Other than that goods night sleep, bed comfy shower powerful. The only thing i would mention is your late night bar staff. I work in the industry and yes it can be annoying when intoxicated people return to the hotel. But for his own sake dont show it. I was having a quiet drinknat the bar and he showed his distaste to a group who came in. Yes its hard and a pain but just get on with it. Ita def a pleasant hotel and one i will frequent again

With easy access to the train station, shops, and restaurants, The Imperial has a lot going for it. My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The front office staff was helpful and knowledgable. The breakfast spread ran the typical European gamut of eggs, cereal , fresh fruit and meats. This is the first hotel that I would stay at if I came to Ireland a second time.!!

Excellant location in the centre of town just a short walk across the square from bus/train station and on the doorstep of all the food,drink,entertainment and shopping you need. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Facility is older for sure but well maintained. Has all you need if you're in Galway to visit the sights not take up residency in a hotel. AC, wifi and a few channels on the TV.

This hotel is situated right in the middle of the action. The street is noisy during the night so don't book if you are going to have a hissy fit about that. The rooms are clean, huge and well equipped. The bathroom was a bit tired but nothing to get upset about. The "continental" breakfast is great - loads to choose from. The staff are pleasant and the service is great. Highly recommended for a city centre stay for a reasonable price.

We have been visiting Galway for years we love the city and Salthill. The Imperial Hotel is the only hotel we ever stayed in. We always stay in the same room. The hotel location is excellent. You just walk out the door of the hotel and you are in the heart beat of the city. As I said we are visiting Galway for many many years. We never had any problem with this hotel. The accommodation, all the staff from reception, to the bar, dining area, food, people who service the rooms every day all very of the highest quality. It all adds up to making your stay at the hotel a very relaxed and enjoyable one.
