The Imperial is located very close to the city center. The building is quite impressive and a lot has already been said about its Indian touch! Let me give you a feel of what you can expect. In terms of efficiency at the desk, there is room for improvement! Everything is quite complicated, and our check-in took almost 20 minutes….far... More

Firstly I was astounded by this hotel, it captures the old charm however it was a brief visit. Before we returned home we spent 3 days at the hotel and the cracks began to appear. 5* opulence of the rooms was greatly appreciated but the front desk was not 5* service. They were not helpful at all considering the cost... More

We selected the Imperial to end a 3 week journey thru the Indian Himalayas and we enjoyed each single second of our stay. From the airport pickup, the warm and extraordinary welcome to all hotel facilities our stay was simple perfect. The central location makes it easy to walk to close bye Emporium (shopping mall with all kind of Indian... More

Having stayed here a number of times on trips to India it's the only place to stay for my needs. With all the amenities from multiple restaurants, some shopping, and a full service spa everything is on the grounds. The food is always great and the staff very helpful.

We have had a most enjoyable introduction to India thanks to the staff and the style of this lovely hotel. There are wonderful inexpensive restaurants with hundreds of metres, delightful shopping, and fascinating walks to attractions from previous centuries. Slightly disappointed with Wi-fi cost. Would definitely stay here again.

Probably. Yes it is. I have stayed at most of the 5 stars in Delhi over the past 20 years (some claim to be 7 stars!) And certainly this hotel is top of the tree in many ways. What I most like is the colonial feel (not sure I should mention that!) and the subtle decor and service that marks... More

I knew the Imperial several years ago for the amazing restaurants it housed. I thankfully had to stay there for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The pickup and drop off to/from the airport was great, the welcome from reception was friendly, the service overall in bars/ restaurants/spa/housekeeping was top notch. Really adored the buffet breakfast-its variety and quality (Indian,... More

I have stayed here twice and the decor and service is very good. Nice pool and a small health club, with yoga room. Bar and restaurants are great also. There is a great emporium across the street to shop at also.

This is a truly magnificent hotel and beautifully maintained! The spacious rooms are very clean and tastefully designed. Great pool area. The staff can't do enough for you, simply unbeatable service (and the concierge team is fantastic)! The food is amazing and Spice Route is must for dinner one night! The Imperial would have to be the best hotel in... More

Beautifully remodeled. My wife went for breakfast and asked what kind of tea they had. The reply was "madam, we have everything" and they did. excellent restaurants. service superb. Room very well done although could maybe use better reading lights. Free yoga. Beautiful pool. well located. Highly recommend.
