Imperial Hotel, Cork
Nice stay in a great location
Beautiful historic hotel. Great service, nice room. Included bottle water. Highly recommend

Well maintained, Historic Hotel
Absolutely beautiful, historic property right in the center of town. Our room was small and cramped as there was a full size bed plus a twin, though we asked for a queen/ king bedded room. Beds were extremely comfortable. Staff was very helpful. Would return again.

Very Noisy! Avoid.
Very noisy. Very little sleeping possible with Disco sounds until 2AM. Awakened early by truck noises from outside the room. Towel rack falling off wall. Bed made such that we had to pull the covering up as the blanket only came up to chest level. Will never stay there again. Avoid unless you plan to be out until after 2.

Lovely hotel in perfect area
Nice hotel in Cork near everything, The rooms were very clean and as pictured online. I thought the price was very reasonable considering how nice the rooms were. We had wonderful service and the hotel staff was very friendly. We loved the triple room option since we were traveling with three older kids. The hotel floor plan was a bit odd. It felt like they had added on over the years. It took us a few times to figure out how to get back and forth to our kids room but it was a very nice hotel. We will return on our next trip to Cork.
