Positive Reviews

Prime position for exploring Amsterdam

For getting around Amsterdam on foot, few accommodations supply the prime position that the Imperial Hotel possesses - according to essentially all former guests. The Artis Royal Zoo, Anne Frank House and Rijksmuseum are all a 20-minute walk or less from the hotel.

Quality Wi-Fi service

The hotel's Wi-Fi has received great feedback from many recent visitors that used the facility during their stay. The speed, range and reliability of the wireless Internet have all produced top scores in general.

Spacious and clean rooms

The supposedly spacious rooms at the Imperial Hotel were regularly regarded as spotlessly clean by previous guests. In addition, and whilst the comfort levels can apparently be disrupted by external noise, the beds have received positive feedback for the most part.

Negative Reviews

Steep stairs with no lift available

Although it is a prevalent issue throughout Amsterdam, many former visitors have noted that the Imperial Hotel's stairs are steep and tricky to negotiate. This problem is further compounded by the omission of a lift within the accommodation.

Rooms can get stuffy

As the rooms lack any air conditioning facilities, previous guests have claimed that the rooms can get noticeably stuffy and warm - especially during warmer months. With that said, fans are provided to negate this disadvantage to a small extent.

Reception not available on a 24-hour basis

Despite the fact that the staff members were typically praised for their helpful and friendly manner, the limited front desk hours has, understandably, caused problems at times for past visitors to the Imperial Hotel.
