I stayed here in late July 2013 for a tradeshow. My first experience in India. What can I say the service was perfect. I had two massages while there . The best I have ever had. I was so relaxed and ready for our tradeshow. I can't recommend this place enough. Nothing was a problem and loved the extra touches... More

Okay, my reviews of my hotels in India are getting obnoxious as they are all 5 star and amazing reviews. The Imperial Hotel is my top choice in Delhi as I have stayed in several other 5 star hotels in the area. The walls in Imperial are lined with fantastic art, the restaurants are some of the best in the... More

This is a great hotel as far as location and ambience go. Although everyone was mostly nice and the service could not be faulted, there was a sense that I was not completely welcome as an Indian. The security (which is required in a hotel of this type in India) seemed to be undertaking some sort of profiling. As an... More

We spent three nights at The Imperial in a Deco Room (good size and lovingly furnished). The hotel is very impressive - art deco, built in 1911 and immaculately maintained. The art collection alone is worth a visit but the quality of staff, facilities and catering made this for us an exceptional stay. Everything was just beautiful! Worth a special... More

We stayed at the imperial for 3 days. The service is top notch. Albert and his asst. we're able to track down and retrieve my passport that had been inadvertently left on the plane from udaipur. So kind and positive. The pool is a welcome plus in the very hot Delhi summer. A respite in a very crowded and chaotic... More

Rooms are very comfortable with large size bed, quality bed linen & accessories. My room on the first floor overlooked... More

I realize that title is making a bold statement - but I have travelled the world over and cannot think of a more impressive hotel. Staying here is like travelling back in time - to British India of the 1920's. The Art Deco building will no doubt be a future World Heritage Site, if not for the architecture, then for... More

The Imperial Hotel is an oasis in the middle of a wonderful, crazy, crowded, noisy city. Staff and service are top notch, the property is spotless clean. The hotel is packed with artworks which brings you to the old colonial times. Spa experience - a dream! My favorite place: The 1911 Bar with a beautiful Veranda where you can sit... More
