Very nice hotel in the city center - but away from the noisy bars. The bed was comfortable and the room had air conditioning, Also, their was live Irish music in the bar. I definitely will recommend this place to my friends.

Great location right in the heart of the city. Breakfast was good.

I’ve always liked the Imperial, and it’s been my first pick to stay in Galway because of its convenience. This time, it started to feel dated, like things were getting a little worn and needed to be updated. I’m shocked to say something like that, but it had gotten to that point where I noticed. I also had drunk people trying to get into my room one night at like 3am and couldn’t get any help from the front desk. They didn’t even answer the phone. There was also what sounded like a wrestling match going on upstairs one night. Not saying I won’t stay there again, but I’ll be checking out other places first. I was really disappointed.

The Imperial Hotel is in s great location to see many sights of Galway by foot. This was a big advantage as opposed to having to drive and find parking. Big comfortable room, and very friendly staff.

in need of update. location is great. but no parking on property.

Nice location and friendly staff. However, the room smelled like smoke, the toilet ran and was not bolted down properly, the sink leaked, the bathroom door wouldn’t stay shut, and the bed was not comfortable. The hotel in general looked like it needed to be remodeled. Overall, we would definitely stay elsewhere next time in Galway.

€5 Supplement for a full Irish breakfast ! Never encountered this in a hotel before in Ireland. A bit mean in my opinion . Nice hotel, good location , but no car park.

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip, and didn't hesitate to book here again when we decided to revisit Galway before heading home. We found it to be very conveniently located to transportation and the city. Plenty of room, comfortable and clean. The free continental breakfast was a nice bonus.

I didn't really have much to do in Galway, but the staff helped point me to certain things for my one night in town. It's close to everything you could want.
