We stayed here for our first night in India, in Delhi. We arrived late and went straight to this hotel with our driver. They had extensive security when we entered, which added to our level of comfort (none of us had been to India before). They searched the car and each person went through security screening. The hotel was absolutely... More

We had a chance to spend a few days at this grand, historic hotel for our staycation. Built in the 1930s, the Imperial is one the most impressive landmark hotels in the city. Its interior features lofty ceilings, marble floors, and elegant teak furniture -- all of which are just stunning. Beautiful colonial paintings, sculptures, and other pieces of art... More

Stayed with family as part of our recent trip to India. Great hotel with good service wiht staff eager to make sure your stay was perfect. Dinner at Spice Route is really beyond compare and the manager there really completes the dining experience. The only minor complaint is that the hot water supply in our showers was quite unstable which... More

We did not stay at the Imperial, but were invited for lunch by an Indian Businessman.The first impact is that you have stepped back in a luxurious palace of the 1800s! What a magnificent interior, with huge bouquets of fresh roses, right into the cloak room! The staff were friendly and treated us with the same warmth as if we... More

Imperial is considered one of the finest properties in New Delhi. It lived up to its expectation We had a gathering of about 300 people at imperial ballroom. The venue was great but I think it's more suited to solemn affairs. Our cameraman made us brighten the lights and we had a whole lot of kids at the venue taking... More

Hotel is well known and lives up to expectations, rooms are a little small for the price-tag and food falls into the same category. Staff are wonderful and the grounds are well kept, pool is fantastic and breakfast was equal to other 5 star hotels in Delhi. It is a greta escape from the hussle of busy Delhi and only... More

Everywhere you have magnificent paintings,sculptures, furniture from the lobby to the corridors of the rooms. The rooms are very spacious and highly comfortable with totally renovated bathrooms. The rooms have wonderful wooden flooring and great... More

everything is absolutely extraordinary, the rooms, the staff, the breakfast, the spa, the restaurants - simply everything. Our highlight was the restaurant "spice route" with the restaurant manager Rohit Prasad, who provide us a passionate insight into the distinguished history of the restaurant.

We visited end of june 2015 for 2 nights. The place is just beautiful and very relaxing. The pool area was lovely and the staff were always available to wait on you. The breakfast was delicious as was the Asian Fusion restaurant. The drivers were helpful in pointing out places of interest. Unfortunately, we were given what seemed to be... More
