Superb hotel, with neocolonial styling, superb service and a tranquil oasis-like vibe in the chaos that is Delhi. The pool is a great way to wile away days while the quality of the restaurants means you wouldn't even need to set foot outside it if you weren't interested in the multitude of other fascinating things to do in Delhi.

We save this hotel for the last night of our India trip. It's perfect. I've stayed in hotels all over the world and this is among my favorites. In fact, I'd like to return for my 50th birthday. The Imperial is Exceptional.

The Imperial is my favorite hotel in Delhi. Until recently I had only used it for leisure (the spa is incredible; the Spice Route is one of my favorite restaurants in the world; they do a great high tea; the gardens are lush; the rooms beautiful). I have had only positive experiences. Recently, I hosted an event at their business... More

The breakfast is amazing...every kind of breakfast food you could ever want. I would happily stay here again...and highly recommend to anyone going to Delhi. Oh...and the spa was really nice.

My friend and I stayed 4 days at the Imperial, instead of the 2 days we had booked because my friend was bitten by an insect of some kind and was quite unwell because of it. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the front desk staff took us under their wing. We needed a wheelchair; they made a... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, to catch up with old friends who now live in Delhi. If I get back to Delhi, I don't need to look elsewhere. This is where I will be. Our stay was perfect, from the room, amenities, location, decor and anything else you might think of. The staff were very helpful (nothing... More

I had to go to Delhi Centre this time, so I was looking for a decent hotel near Connaught Circus. Shangri-la has a very interesting Horizon-package, including use of their lounge, at a very competetive rate. I contacted the Imperial via email, and they offered me a rate including free WLAN and brekkie, at a reasonable rate (<11000 INR a... More

The hotel with its grandeur and picturesque architecture, makes me go back in times I have just seen virtually. Those beautiful in-house cars and green & white coloured property made me go full of praises. But, this is where the fun stops, the room smelled of some pungent gas which was not troubling constantly but rather on and off. When... More
