I stayed in the grand imperial with 4 of my friends. We planned our entire trip online finalizing the place to visit to all bookings. We booked 2 rooms for 5 of us which got upgraded when we reached there. That was the high point of our trip. If you are lover of wooden furniture, it is a risk experience... More

We found the Grand Imperial to be a real treat. This was our second visit to Agra and we were delighted to find ourselves booked into a heritage hotel rather than something more large and impersonal . The welcome was very warm and it was a nice suprise to get a free upgrade to a couple of larger rooms. We... More

DO NOT GET FOOLED BY THE FOUR STARS: ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN INDIA OR AN NRIs. This hotel has no interest in serving you unless your a caucasian with blonde hair. First thing upon entering the front area is that they asked for our passports. They took it in the back to make copies. We were waiting for them... More

Pros: Really, nothing. Terrible staff, terrible location, extremely unhygienic conditions, certainly not something any tourist would appreciate. Cons: I didn't get the impression that hotel staff cares about guests, or even care about feedback to help improve anything. They take defensive tone. Location: It's close to TAJ MAHAL..but don't book this hotel for location. Unless sleeping with bug spray and... More

Thank you for taking time out to write about your experience at The Imperial. It’s extremely disheartening to know that your last stay with us in June 2015 was not comfortable due to the Marriage happening inside the hotel. The Grand Imperial takes pride in its service standards and we are always upfront in creating a memorable stay experience for... More

We were worried by some poor reviews here, but actually found the Grand Imperial fine for a couple of nights: yes, it's old fashioned, but in quite a charming way. Our room was huge with a Victorian style bathroom and four poster bed, staff were reasonably helpful and food ok - gloomy dining room though. Other than the amazing sights... More

The hotel is located away from the city buzz.. The location is much better than other 5 star hotels like that of Oberoi and ITC. The rooms were excellent though there is a lot of scope of improvement in terms of the water quality ( orange colored ferrous water) and the food prices... Overall a joyful experience. Thanks for the... More

The tariff matches that of a 4-star property (that it claims to be) but doesnt live up to it. Food at the restaurant was merely passable and HIGHLY overpriced. Also, I was told in the morning that my booking did not entitle me to a complimentary breakfast at the hotel. I was told my booking (made from yatra.com) was not... More
