The Imperial Palace is one of the finest hotels in the world. From the moment you arrive you know you are in a very special place. The service was impeccable, the furnishings were exquisite with unparrelled views of the sea. They serve a sumptuous breakfast buffet on an exquisite outdoor veranda also with views of the sea. Everyone who works... More

I was not able to make my reservation because the airport in Miami was closed due to Hurricane Matthew, and this hotel, charged me for the full length of my stay which i think is absurd and ridiculous, and booking.com was not helpful at all so I lost 600 Euros due to circumstances that were not in my control.

As the name would suggest it's certainly resembles a Palace with its regal decor, which tastefully done. The hotel has great facilities with very comfortable rooms; large bathroom with separate bath & shower, twin sinks & all the bits n pieces! Beds are king size with comfy mattress toppers. Not all rooms have a balcony & sea view so if... More

Although this hotel is a most impressive landmark in Santa Margherita Ligure with beautiful rooms and great service I felt the 5 star rating unwarranted. The pool was located in a hard area to access and the hotel location warranted a shuttle bus into the main town due to the steep roads. In addition ,the noise from the heavy traffic... More

Our five night stay at The Imperial Palace was truly a grand hotel experience. It's marble and vast array of eclectic antiques make every turn of the staircase and hallway a treasure for the eye. It's a grand experience in the style of the Belle Époque . The staff are incomparably professional - reserved and dedicated. Our stay here was... More

Hotel has a beautiful view.. We took an imperial suite on The top floor.. The air conditioning was very poor, we had to close the curtains & block the magnificent view to avoid the sun heating up the room.. The water pressure was also very weak compared to five stars hotel standards. We booked & payed in advance for five... More

The grounds are beautiful and peaceful to walk around, especially the walk to and from the pool and beach. The breakfast venue, sitting on a... More
