We stayed 4 nights at the Imperial. BTW it's not really known and the Art Deco Imperial, just Imperial Hotel. It is housed in a restored art nouveau style building built in the early 1900 but I would not say it is the best example of this form of architecture. I think quite a lot of the interiors were mock ups and so it was not entirely aesthetically appealing. For example, the dining room looked to me like a large high ceilinged turkish sauna with its glazed art nouveau wall tyles and mouldings. Then again this is a matter of taste.
Our stay was pleasant and enjoyable but as my Czech friend had warned us, "Service still needs improvement". For a 5 Star hotel it tried hard enough but we found service variable - some staff were better than others and there were definitely rough edges that could be polished off here and there.
The rooms were large and adequate and very comfortable, but bathroom toiletries were not up to expectation. There is a nice reataurant on the ground floor which serves meals throughout the day where the food is really not bad. Try the Czech Sauvignon Blanc Binder.
It is located on the edge of the Old Town so it's a 15 minute trek into the town square - not an issue if the weather is good (as there are nice buildings all along the way) but on a rainy day this can be a set back.
Trams, metro trains and buses leave from a stop (Namesti Republiky) about 5 minutes down the road from the hotel where you can go to most places in Prague, including the cathedral and castle on the hill across the river - helps if you've done the tourist walk before and don't really want to do it again. Lots of shopping around and a 10 - 15 minute walk to Wenceslas Square.
The sauna and gym are little old and they really need an upgrade on gym equipment. Otherwise clean and adequate.
