A perfect Christmas Package

I have stayed at The Imperial on many occasions so when I knew I would be in London for Christmas I decided to try the Christmas Package. I arrived early on Christmas Eve intending to drop off my bag before going to the theatre but my room was ready so I was able to freshen up before going out. There was a complimentary bottle of wine on check-in. I arrived back late afternoon for the complimentary drink before a very tasty meal. Later in the evening I took advantage of the offer of a coach trip around London to see the lights. After lunch on Christmas Day Father Christmas visited with gifts. In the evening there was a meal and dancing at a sister hotel nearby. On Boxing day I was at football and then went to see Hamilton so I did not partake of the festivities but there was a meal and disco on offer. Throughout the period the food was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. I would particularly recommend this package to anyone on there own as I was. The atmosphere is such that you would soon find your self conversing with people in the bar or at a meal. I would certainly stay here again for Christmas if in London.

Well Situated, But Tired

I stayed here on my most recent trip in December 2017, in a single room overlooking the rear of the hotel (my room was lovely and quiet!). I love the convenience and location of this hotel, but to be honest it is starting to look a bit tired. Single rooms are compact but well appointed, however the mattress was tired and not particularly comfortable. Also the heating was on flat out during a period of mild weather, making the room feel like a sauna (the window doesn't really open wide enough to provide much relief). The bathroom has the luxury of a bath as well as a shower, but the shower head could use a bit of a clean (water sprayed everywhere when turned on!). Hot breakfast is offered at this hotel, and is very good but get in early (I ate between 7am-8am most days and food selection was good). Free wifi is offered but I didn't use it as I had my own dongle so I don't know what it was like. There are plenty of dining options both in the hotel and the general area. For the price the rooms are adequate, and the location is excellent. Would I stay here again? Possibly, but not in winter.

One night only

Stayed here recently, it's a large hotel obviously built in the 60s or 70s, I found it to be very depressing, dark everywhere throughout hotel, room had a particular smell I don't know what it was but could smell it on my clothes when I got back home, TV atrocious, horrible lightening in bedroom, and noisy throughout casino underneath hotel, nice friendly receptionist and breakfast was very plentiful and organised, good location

Nice and comfortable hotel close to transport to everywhere.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, booking with the hotel direct. We were upgraded to lovely rooms without asking. We got breakfast, which was very nice and one evening meal in the deal we booked. You can choose from four restaurants where to eat with this deal. The room was clean and had everything we wanted. A lovely comfortable bed and loads of space. Our room was at the back and was quiet. We liked the bar which was in-between this hotel and The President. Very comfortable and not too bad for prices considering we were in London. The tube (Russell Square) is a two minute walk away and buses the same. Around the hotel there are many restaurants. Hotel staff were all excellent. The man from concierge went out in the pouring rain to get us a taxi as the traffic was gridlocked for which we were very grateful. We will definitely use again when we visit London.

Fine for a one night stay.

If you are looking for somewhere inexpensive for a one night stay this is fine.Pro's - They are really helpful and are happy to store your luggage before you check in and afterwards. It is inexpensive, clean and in a good location.Con's - It is looking very tired, paint peeling off walls and old equipment in the rooms.However the staff are great and I would stay again.
