Walk through these doors and the Raj lives! Occupying a former government building from British colonial days, this place is absolutely iconic. It may be the finest hotel I've ever stayed in. The building is incredibly beautiful, large, expansive, classic. The artwork is stunning and everywhere! The food is magnificent: the breakfast buffet is the size of a basketball court... More

The staff in general were very nice, helpful and personable; the staff at Daniel's Tavern in particular were above and beyond. I miss them! The food there was also excellent. I wish this restaurant and its staff were in my hometown. I was in New Delhi for a few personal days after a long business trip, and was traveling solo... More

Yes the place is nice and clean and calm. It's elegant with a hint of kitsch in the art. But the High Tea food was mediocre and the service was lousy. The scones and cream were great but the sandwiches had stale bread with very little filling. Nice selection of tea. Only one other table was occupied and my waiter... More

We came here for both afternoon tea and dinner on two separate days. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The afternoon tea was a little disappointed compared to afternoon teas at home in England. Dinner however was fabulous and they even had a pianist play which really have the room some atmosphere as we arrived in low season so... More

My daughter booked this hotel for three nights for us before starting a tour in New Deli. The hotel is amazing, old world charm, staff cannot do enough for you. The rooms are wonderful and spacious, linens top notch and couldn't be more satisfied with the room. Buffet breakfast was included and was excellent, from freshly made omlets to light... More

If you want to feel the colonial history then Imperial is the right choice of hotel. Hotel is full of character and style which will make you travel back in British Raj era. Hotel is centrally located, walking distance form Delhi's best shopping market CP. When in Imperial you must take time out to do hotel painting/picture tour.

We often stay at The Imperial due to its luxury and location. On our recent visit, we had booked a suite but unbeknown to us, a major fashion show was being held at the hotel on our first night. This caused us some issues as the fashion show had spilled into the corridors and ended up disturbing us as guests... More

We visited for afternoon tea and enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner and had a wonderful meal. Next time we will stay in the hotel, wonderful old world feel. Tea is served in a beautiful airy room, impeccable service, a wonderful buffet of sweet and savoury delights, with proper china cups.

We had arranged an international conference at Hotel Imperial, New Delhi on 5th and 6th August 2015. Delegates from various South Asian Countries attended the conference and arrangements were made for their stay also at the same hotel. We got good feedback from our guest regarding the hotel rooms, service, food etc. Our own experience in interacting with the hotel... More
