Hotel Imperator

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our tour operator booked our group into a hotel closing down immediately after we depart. That is a terrible time to stay someplace. They were out of everything we wanted - at the bar, bathroom amenities, etc. Our room was tiny and had no drawers for belongings. The bathroom was so tiny, our shower door kept hitting the toilet. Nothing to recommend this place.

This place was filthy and I would never recommend it to anyone. We were not told that it is closing down on the 1st October for a year for refurbishment. I think it would take knocking it down and rebuilding it for it to be anywhere near worth staying in. This was a birthday present for my husband - what a joke!!

We stayed at this hotel it needs a total re decoration + staff retraining. The evening meals were very poor one night we were served raw pigeon. Bill for 7 night was over £2,000.00 which was not value for money. We stayed 8 years ago 8 this hotel was very good. We ended up eating out around the town the food was better and cheaper.The front desk staff were very good and help full. Good that they are closing

This hotel was touted as a very good one. I am currently staying here and returned from a very long day of sightseeing to find that the elevator was not working and I had to climb four flights of stairs to my room only to find that no one had cleaned my room. The television does not work. The bathroom is shabby with broken tiles. The breakfast this morning was below average at best: coffee and cereal. The person who was supposed to be making omelettes did not show up on time. Not worth your $$$.

I have never stayed in a so-called 4 star hotel that was in such poor shape as the Hotel Imperator. Travelling in my mid-twenties and staying in 2 stars was a better experience. I realise that the hotel will be closing for renovations this fall, but they should be ashamed of themselves for having stayed open this long. Everything from the front entrance to the rooms was dilapidated and mismatched. This is not quaint or classy old, it's a disgrace. After looking at our rooms (two adjoining), we informed the front desk that we would not stay past our first night. We had booked for 4 nights. They informed us that they had just charged our visa for the whole stay and would not refund the remaining nights. The reservation stated "Change or cancellation are allowed till 11:59 PM prior to the day of arrival, otherwise the first night of stay is charged". Fine, charge the first night, but we gave notice the moment we became aware of the hotel's condition. I have never had a hotel charge my visa upon arrival. Just stay away. Sleep in your car if you have to - it will be more comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay. This is an older hotel, but the beds are comfortable, the service good, and the location is walking distance to a ton of restaurants and the main attractions. The courtyard, bar and sitting are great for lounging. This is NOT a fancy new place, so if that is your thing, probably not for you.

This is an old hotel that retains a lot of style. It's quite old-world elegant, but you have to be prepared to put up with a few quirks, including poor soundproofing. The location is good, the staff are kind, and the breakfast great in a lovely courtyard setting. Altogether very enjoyable.

Yes the rooms are a little tired but they are also very clean, comfortable & in a great location. We had two rooms for 2 nights and had a wonderful stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had our car with us and we just parked it out the front.

Upon entering in thiw establishment where receptionist and Mr. Brian were very good indeed especially the porter being Mr. Brian exceptionally attentive responding and suggesting like a travel bureau. The room was nicely painted, the lift was from another era, the cleanliness of the less frequented common areas not up to standard but there was a fine almost Roman restaurand garden court of some size, very good declamatory service, fine location and acceptable price. We might even return to this Hotel which craves for a boutique refurbishment, at the present state because we are in line with the allegoric charm of being run down retaining though something exceptional.

Hotel is on a very busy one way street & not easy to stop outside. Valet private parking available, otherwise on street parking, which is very restricted. Received friendly welcome & were shown to our room by the receptionist, via an ancient lift. Locks on doors similarly ancient, but once we'd mastered it, had no problems. Room disappointingly small, not what we had expected. Table & chair directly in front of the wardrobe. Lighting in the room poor, with only 1 bedside lamp, making it difficult to read in the evenings. Bed comfy & Wi-Fi good, as was aircon in the room. No aircon in the bar, restaurant or lounge areas. We had a room overlooking the road, which is very noisy from early morning. Hotel's location is good, just a couple of minutes walk to restaurants & bars and shops within 10 minutes. The gourmet restaurant at the hotel was closed 2 out of 3 of the nights we stayed, so didn't try it.
