“Choose it if you like antiques”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2012

This hotel is an antique itself. It is a traditional Transylvanian Renaissance building built in 16th century. We were told that many famous people such as Emperor Franz Joseph II, composers Franz Liszt, Johann Strauss and Prince Charles were their guests.

It is located in the old part of Sibiu near the main square and made browsing around the old town incredibly easy.

Yet, as any other antiques, it looks a bit worn out. The room (especially the bedsheet and pillow case) is not clean. The air-con didn't work so we couldn't sleep at night under 30 degree on bedsheet and pillow case with dirt marks. The free wifi didn't work most of the time due to poor signal.We would prefer to visit than live in a historical building.

Room Tip: If you prefer clean & comfortable room than an antique, choose a new hotel.

Stayed here for two nights on a trip through Transilvania. The location is unbeatable, on the main pedestrian street next to the main square (which is connected to the two smaller squares). The strange decor hits you as soon as you get in. Gold and white everywhere with furniture that wouldn't look at of place is a lottery winner's house who had more money than taste.

The room was ok, ours was a duplex with the bed on a upper level in the room. It did get quite warm at nights and if you decide to open the windows you will need ear plugs (people, cars, alarms, bird etc.) Didn't have breakfast while I was there.

This wonderful old baroque hotel is on the pedestrian street. How to find the parking area and how to get on to the pedestrian street is complicated. Our suggestion is to get excellent directions ahead of time. Our room was very spacious. In fact, it was really a suite with a living room and the bedroom off it. The bathroom is so teeny, tiny that it is the smallest we have seen except for a cruise ship. But, it did have a tub! There are no bell boys to assist with luggage. Breakfast was very good and the staff were lovely.

The hotel was good looking from outside, old building, historical, nice. The interior was also old fashion (nice, I mean); But pretty old furniture (not only the style); My room (double, with regime single) was very small, but my friends' room (also double) was spacy enough. Staff was nice enough. Breakfast was not satisfactory at all - a lot of fried stuff..., less fresh food.

The best thing about the Imparatul is its central location in Sibiu. We had a very large room which was good. However, it was a bit worn and the mattress was too soft. There was an extremely large jacuzzi in the bathroom which made things seem more cramped than they were.The biggest negative was the overwhelming smell of cigarettes as smoking is allowed in all rooms and common areas.
