tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

Better than average

We have just returned from a weekend at the Imperial hotel. We paid extra for a room upgrade and it was worth every penny. The room was very large with a king size bed. The bathroom was a good size with 2 wash basins. The two large radiators made the room very hot but we soon turned them down. Staff seem friendlier than at a lot of London hotels. The breakfast was ok but difficult to cater for so many. Hope to visit again next year

Enjoyable and pleasant

Only stayed the one night, but was impressed with the reception staff, who were very helpful. The room was adequate for what I needed. The facilities that I used were good, being linked with "The President", there was a central bar area, and there is also another bar which served food as well till late , for the late night munchies! Breakfast in the restaurant was great, with a buffet providing cereals and full English, as well as continental breakfast and juices, with tea and coffee served at the table. Being situated just off of Southampton Row in Holborn, you're only a short walk from the West End! Overall, ideally situated and great value!

A very good bargain

My friend and I went to London with SuperBreak. We had Return train travel from Derby to London with booked seats both ways, two nights bed and breakfast and an evening meal on the first night, plus a choice of theatre tickets, we chose to see Matilda. All this for £224. Excellent. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, TV, WiFi and all we could want. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the food was excellent, in fact we ate there the second night too. The underground was very near and the bus service was a five minute walk. A lovely weekend.

Mistaken for the President Hotel

As the title states we mistook this hotel for the President which is joined to the Imperial, but there is a difference, we were in a room facing the road on the 3rd floor, which was situated and the end of the corridor, as we walked to the end it became colder and colder, when we entered the room the curtains were shut, I asked my partner to close the windows as the noise from the traffic below was really loud, but when we pulled back the curtains they were shut, we assumed, wrongly that after a certain time into the night the traffic would be lighter so we hoped the noise would lessen, no joy, the windows are single glazed aluminium frames and the curtains actually moved with the draft coming through, I was awake most of the night, the noise was horrendous, so I did something Ive never done and went to reception to be moved, no joy, we could have another road facing room on the 6th, but nothing else available, we asked if we could stay at one of there sister hotels, but without even looking they said they were full as well, so we went for breakfast, worst breakfast ive had in a long time, the coffee was disgusting and the scrambled eggs as my partner says had no egg in them, so we went back to reception again and said we would move out of room and have one on the 6th floor, anything was better that nothing, when we went back down with our bags packed, surprise some cancellations had come in and we could have a courtyard facing room on the 9th, much better, but the breakfast was no improvement, this hotel is in desperate need of a refurb, and an upgrade in their breakfast, will not be staying again. After paying £396 for 3 nights stay, I feel cheated.

Very Central

Stayed over for one night on business, 7th floor is quite quiet. Room was clean but looking old. For one night you can't go wrong, plenty of restaurants just outside your door. Breakfast was good, lots of choice. Pleasant staff and it was quick to check in and check out. Would stay again.
