The hotel was neat, clean, and very central to getting around while walking. If you are staying in Galway and plan to walk around to explore the city, you can't go wrong at the Imperial Hotel. Everything you want to see is well within walking distance.

I stayed for 1 night B&B. 1 adult. E79. Room 213. Check In: Very pleasant girls but could be presented better. Room: Clean but could do with a major facelift. Grubby carpet, damaged paint and a dirty window. There was a lot of cigarette butts outside the window on the adjoining roof. Unattractive view. Bed was comfortable and warm. Bathroom...

Organised this hotel for a group on a stag party. Check-in was perfectly handled and the rooms were spacious, clean and perfect for what was needed. It is ideally located on Eyre square. A good full irish breakfast to set us on our way the next day.

Check in was efficient and the staff on reception were lovely. My room was on the first floor at the back with...

Old hotel, solid 3 star- but still- dirty towels and leaky toilets. Would stay again, but they can do better. The big bonus is triple rooms. One smelled smokey- but the staff was nice. Location is good too.

Very central, on eyres square and clean but a bit out dated. No views in the room we got plus it was really dark with no real daylight getting in. No outside area and smoking area was down an alley or out on the road. Breakfast was self serve continental. Good choice but dishes not removed when used and had...

My Friend and I stay at the Imperial Hotel 31st Dec to 3rd Jan 2017. This was our first time in Galway and we had a complete ball of a time. We were originally booked in for two nights and ended up staying a third night because we loved it so much and didn't want to leave! The hotel was...
