Very happy
Beautiful hotel. Great room

Imperial Hotel, Cork
Staff is wonderful, the rooms restaurant and bar are all recommended. Location cannot be beaten.
Elizabeth, us3 night romance trip
Imperial Hotel, Cork
Faded old place with a nice lobby, mediocre breakfast, touristy neighborhood with bad restaurants, hard to find via GPS, very small room. Pleasant staff. We stayed in Cork only to visit Blarney Castle, and would have been much better off staying in an inn or hotel in Blarney.

Good hotel in Cork
Imperial Hotel was a good place to stay in Cork. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. The location was in a busy area with plenty of shopping and restaurants to visit. The only drawback was that the parking provided was about an eight minute walk from the hotel. I would stay there again when visiting Cork.
