We stayed at The Imperial four years ago and could not have been happier there then and nothing has changed. The room was comfortable and the bathroom luxurious. They greeted us as if we were regulars and one of the room valets passed us in the corridor and knew us by name - how I do not know. We only... More

From the airport pickup to the smooth checkin process, I could tell immediately that the service was going to be great at The Imperial. My room was nice and the decor managed to retain a historical feel while having most modern amenities. The room looked over an interior courtyard which I usually don't like but did not mind since the... More

This was our first trip to India, and we booked The Imperial upon a friend's recommendation. The comfort, service and attention to detail are exceptional. The courtesy collection from the airport is a welcome way to begin your stay, and the tour of the hotel upon checking in immediately gives you your bearings. The staff are so committed to their...

We stayed here 2 nights and loved every minute of it. Impressive from the outside and even more so on the inside. It's an oasis amongst the organised chaos that is New Delhi. The staff are very friendly and efficient. We ate in the Spice Route on our first evening, the food was exquisite, the service excellent. It has a... More

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of our trip and it was the perfect way to ease ourselves into the true chaos of India. Beautiful room, stunning hotel and great service. Everything done to the highest possible standard.

My husband ,mmyself and two other couples were vacationing in India for 1 month. We chose the Imperial as our base, checking in and out several times. I can't say enough about the staff at this hotel! Nothing is impossible. I left my e- reader in the front seat pocket of an evening flight into Delhi ( careless of me)... More

As always the Imperial Hotel in Delhi is consistently the best in class and customer service. The hotel is impeccably clean, quite and very quaint. High Tea in the Atrium or a drink at the Atrium Bar ( Patial Peg ) is a must to enjoy a smile and friendly service from Girish. While there one must check out Spice... More

This time I just visited for lunch and drinks, but at one time I stayed frequently in this beautiful oasis in the middle of Delhi. Service is impeccable form A to Z. The grounds and the buildings are reason enough to visit, what is by many described as Indias finest hotel. Built in the early 1930's, it is a fine... More

one of the most perfect examples of colonial Deco architecture. Great decor, superb service and the meals were absolutely delicious. The spa is from another time where you can close your eyes and blink yourself into the time of the Moghuls

I am currently on business in Delhi for a few weeks. I am very happy to be staying at the Imperial. However, the service during the breakfast buffet really needs to improve. You have to repeatedly ask for coffee, ask for cutlery and have your plates taken away. This has been constant for the past few weeks I've been here.... More
