Top quality but pricy. Everything has been thought out and this hotel is deservedly rated the best in Delhi , I have stayed at them all over the years. The corridors are like a museum , full of curios , prints and paintings.

Coming from New Dehi's swarm of people, noise, scents odors and many other impressions and Checks In at Imperial you are immediately in a "new world" of calm elegance. An extremely good service, luxury restaurants and rooms. A chance to relax before returning to Delhi's heat and sometimes overwhelming impression. I recommend the "1911" as a lunch restaurant. For dinner,... More

We arrived around 4:00am so our main goal was to get settled in fall asleep so that we could be prepared for our day. Unfortunately the room we were given was subpar... More

My stay during 2 days was even better than expected. I love the colonial atmosphere. For me the breakfast in the patio was the best I ever tasted. I'll definitely come back. It's ideally located to visit New and Old Delhi. And even a visit on 1 day to Agra, what I did to see the Taj Mahal, is perfectly... More

Our stay was rather ruined by the slightly unpleasant front desk staff and their surly attitude. We were kept awake all night by noisy guests, which the staff did little to control.
