This is the first review I have wrote having stayed in a hotel. Having utilised the hotel transport from the airport - this was certainly value for money. We landed early hours the driver and his colleague were very friendly and chatty en route to the Hotel. We were met by wonderful reception staff and shown to our room very... More

Quite simply stunning. The rooms are excellent, and have an old world, Raj, Lutyens feel about them (probably as the hotel was designed by him!) The staff could not be more helpful, and the whole hotel could be a museum such is the quality of the art, prints, and lithographs that adorn the walls. The breakfast buffets are glorious, and...

Everything here was exceptional -- rooms, service, staff, concierge, food , restaurants, ambience. Even the swimming pool! The building is superb and historical -- some crucial events in the run up to Independence took place right here. Situated at 1 Janpath, the location is exceptional too -- near Connaught Place, Janpath market, shops and restaurants nearby , the Janpath Metro... More

The Imperial is the best hotel in Delhi. It is worth the money, if you can afford it, and even worth a splurge if you can reasonably afford two nights. The only caveat: avoid the Chinese restaurant. My friend, who grew up in Delhi, warned me it was the worst restaurant in Delhi, but I didn't believe him. Actually he... More

One of the finest quality hotel with excellent customer service experience and real indian cuisine. The real taste of spices and meats I never experienced before. I never thought vegetarian dishes could taste so down to earth so heavenly good. The service needs all the credit for making everything happen in this wonderful place.

A great property, friendly service and colonial vibe that welcomes you from the hustle and bustle that is Delhi. Would highly recommend a visit. We stayed there (a family of 4) before emarking on a month tour of Rajasthan with our teens, amazing trip put together by Trinetra tours.

Everything about this hotel surpassed our expectations. The staff were attentive, particularly our room cleaner, who could not do enough for us. The room was very comfortable, and the hotel itself is like an art gallery, with the passages and rooms lined with artwork, mostly lithographs. I could have spent hours looking at these, if I had had the time.... More

A lovely hotel with great rooms in a wonderful location. However the quality of food and service are not up to the same level. And certainly not anywhere near the Taj or Oberoi groups. I think if this is your first hotel on your India itinerary then you will be pleased but otherwise you will leave disappointed.

We have stayed here several times before and return because we love the intimacy and icon atmosphere. As you enter there are always the guards with their officious salutes and then you step into the lobby with its fantastic flowers and smell of jasmine.
