Located close to CP. Has real old world charm about it. All the ancient pictures and artefacts are a treat to view. Take you back into British Raj history! Didn't stay, only used the coffee shop which overlooks sprawling, green lawns. A simply wonderful experience!

We heard that this hotel would be one of the fanciest in Asia, and okay the building was very very nice and the rooms were good but the feeling was not that welcoming as in other places we've stayed. Especially in the restaurant (1911), the staff seemed very arrogant and couldn't be bothered with serving us. Especially during breakfast. They... More

We stayed for a week this time and were delighted with every aspect of our stay. The Imperial is not cheap - but to maintain its very high standards of service is costly. If anything goes slightly wrong it is put right immediately and with charm. This must surely be one of the best "Heritage" hotels anywhere.

The Imperial is an oasis amid the chaos of Dehli's traffic, people and air pollution. While Dehli is an exciting city, it is nice to walk through the doors of this hotel and feel calm. The spa and fitness center are great, the outdoor pool is huge, but swimming outside with the air pollution is not too inviting. Breakfast is... More

An excellent hotel that went out of its way to accommodate those enjoying Christmas there. Excellent rooms, friendly service and a terrific buffet Christmas dinner that we really enjoyed. The only down side: over priced wine selection. The waiting area off the lobby seems more designed to accommodate tour guides than guests - it is less impressive than the rest... More

The Imperial has a classy touch to it, as one can feel it once in the hotel property. The lunch at the hotel garden on a Sunday is amazing. One can feel the calm and quiet surroundings which gives a feeling of time stand still. My experience with them has been lunch and dinner activities and it was really positive.... More

Honestly I don't know what to make of The Imperial...I heard a lot about this property and well decided this year to stay. Did a 3 night stay...check in seemed long...at times a little intimidating...and thats one thing I felt every time I went to the reception desk... the hotel is definitely worth talking about when it comes to architecture...

I stayed here with my husband and daughter this month as a stopover en route to Goa. We stayed in a suite and the bed was big enough for us all (my daughter is 10) the room was comfortable and it was good to have a separate sitting area to enjoy the coffee and tea facilities. The bed was comfortable... More
