Not really for Business Trips
Particularly difficult for me as I had work to do in the town and there was an influx of hens and stags on the Friday night. However, Galway is absolutely lovely, even in rainy Feb. It's just this hotel felt like I was walking for ages into a different building to find my room and unfortunately passing a lot of party goers. Otherwise it's a pleasant enough hotel for the money.

If your looking for central Galway you wont find better than the Imperial clean, friendly staff and comfortable modern rooms. Amazing location. We booked triple room which had seating area. We also booked prosecco and card in room which our friend was delighted with, we were very impressed. Will definitely return.

Ask for a room away from traffic if possible
This was my 8th stay at the imperial.fantastic location ,only issue we had was the room we were in was right outside a fire door and other guests were slamming doors and making a lot of noise for a lot of the night into the morning. Every time the door slammed it would shake the head board and wake /disturb my daughter. We could not have a full nights rest.

Great place for one night.
Lean, modern, and comfortable...just know that it's located right on Ayres Square and a bit noisy later in the evening. Our room also happened to be on an alley where the glass bottles would get deposited en masse a couple ot times a night. Oh, and let's not forget the power washers & blowers used to clean the streets early in the morning. Other than that, it was a fine stay!
