Staying at the Imperial Hotel in Delhi is more like staying in a luxurious museum than in a modern hotel. This magnificent colonial masterpiece has an incredible collection of art in every corner of the hotel that its easy to spend hours just wandering the corridors taking in the history. But unlike other historic hotels, the Imperial also matches its... More

Our India trip ended with luxury. The last night was spent at The Imperial. A hotel decorated in colonial style with stores for those who want to shop luxuries such as Chanel. The room was large with a large bathroom. The service was excellent, the staff accomodating and a huge breakfast was served in the morning. Outside the hotel there... More

This was definitely the best hotel where I stayed in my life. The colonial style and the doorman that says "Welcome home" when you arrive are just the beginning of a luxurious stay.... Make sure you try all the restaurants! that are all very good! Although I consider them expensive, compared with all the rest.... Anyway, this was the best... More

3 day business trip with several in-house meals. Arrival was welcoming and managed quickly, standard room spotlessly clean but starting to date a little in terms of style. No noise at night so a very peaceful sleep .....and that is really a big achievement for Delhi! Breakfast was pretty standard but an outstanding lunch buffet which is highly recommended -... More

We stayed here 2 nights and the service was excellent. We even had to switch rooms on the second day due to a strong varnish smell, and they upgraded us to a bigger room promptly. The buffet breakfast was also excellent, especially the Indian dishes in addition to the regular continental fare. Highly recommended if you are staying in New... More

Walking in here makes you feel as if you're in the days of the Raj. It's a beautiful, classic, luxury hotel where you are cosseted and isolated from the real world. The service was outstanding and our room was fantastic. It has a very good choice of restaurants although you can expect bills to match. My only gripe is that... More

Truly excellent. Had a suite. Lovely interiors with interesting collection of prints from the days of the Raj. Super breakfast. Great room service. Nicely appointed rooms and very comfortable beds. Decent book shop. Aged TV was the only gripe I could find. Really excellent spa - very good massage, very nice area for steam. I even had a very good... More
