How much one likes the Imperial is more a function of the traveller than the hotel. It is what it is - full of contradictions: a gorgeous 200 year old structure, in a perfect part of Cork, filled with quirks and idiosyncrasies galore. We stayed on the fourth floor overlooking a noisy street of pubs. Room sloped, water pressure was spotty, heated tiles were wonderful, beds were comfy, and outlets were too few and hard to reach. It is hard to rave, but even harder to grouse too much. It is a hotel caught betwixt three centuries, hanging on to parts of each era. A fine one-time experience. BTW... The staff are just wonderful.
