The Imperial is a truly stunning colonial style hotel, close to Connaught Place in Central Delhi. It is situated in its own secure compound; which I know maybe an important factor for some travellers. You could almost be on 1930s cruise liner in some of the internal spaces. I loved the look and feel of this place. The sheer amount... More

The Imperial Hotel is elegant, beautiful, and relaxing - with fine food and excellent staff. The hotel is like an art gallery - there are artworks and statues everywhere. They change the flower displays monthly - and these are artistically gorgeous. With the many restaurants and bars there is always somewhere to meet colleagues. The breakfast is magnificent and a...

What I remember about this hotel is the grace of old times hotels, high roofs, majestic, colonial type, and yet the sweet exhuberant scent of jasmine, and flowers elegantly adorning the inner walks, Great restaurants, Friendly Staff. An experience just to visit inside.

This hotel is an experience in itself but for me it was also pretty dull place to stay in. I enjoyed the architecture and style but it is a hotel for more conservative travelers. No where to hang out and relax. Boring bars and cafe. Atmosphere special but boring. Wifi too expansive, old dirty looking toilet (chocking!), and hair in... More

Beautiful and lovely service. Food is first rate. Spa reminded me of 1001 Nights. Definitely feels like you are entering another world. Best of all is the car&driver service. Ask for Mr. Samir. He treated us like honored guests. Conscientious, knowledgable, careful and very attentive and safety conscious. He went above and beyond.

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.

My room was a palace in itself, every hour a treat of Services from the colonial times. The in house Restaurants are beating each other in quality of creative Food,... More

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
