This is the finest hotel I have stayed in period. Everything from the courtesy of the, cleanliness, efficiency, the quality of the food was otherworldly. If you want to be treated like royalty then this is the place to stay in.

I loved the pool, gardens and all parts. A fantastic hotel. I can't wait to... More

Stayed here for 7-nights, first time guest. Locals told me it is the nicest property in Delhi. It has a boutique feel but it is much larger than it appears on arrival. The grounds are very nice the building is beautiful. Reception is very friendly, lobby is spacious, and the staff in general is excellent. I stayed in room 229... More

I traveled to the imperial in July 2014. They don't clean the room everyday, prices are extremely high in the hotel and the staff is rude to say at least. I asked one of them to tell me about the paintings in the restaurant he was in a hurry and didn't have time for me. We went to Taj Mahal... More

We loved our stays at The Imperial during our India holiday. Lovely rooms, excellent breakfasts (especially the omelettes) and a warmly refreshing pool. Classic service completed an excellent package of facilities.

Listen to the music underwater(!) whilst in the pool, have breakfast cooked for you on the beautiful sun dappled terrace, hang out and drink Scotch at the 1911 bar, get room service and watch a movie. It's a wonderful place to relax, particularly if you are coming out of the mountains after 6 weeks walking, which we were. The staff... More

Me and my partner traveled to this beauty of a hotel and had an absolutely amazing time. Our trip to Delhi was spectacular and the hotel made it even more so. The rooms are ageing but this adds to the nostalgic and old world charm of the property. The restaurants and food was great, a lot of choice. We especially... More
