The Imperial brings you indeed back to the grandeur of Britain with the mix of India. The hotel is just great and sometimes you have the impression of being in a museum with all the paintings and pieces of art. The staff is more than pro: always eager to help. We stayed at the Heritage Rooms overlooking the pool: nice... More

The Imperial is one of those places where time seems to have frozen in the Colonial era (although the prices have not). It's vast & luxurious, has all imaginable services, there is staff everywhere to help you with things that you (at least I) normally do myself. The room was spacious and spotless. The breakfast buffet is huge and is... More

We stayed one night travelling back through Delhi after touring in Kashmir. The building and history in the hotel is worth taking time out to explore the artwork and various public rooms. Our room was a standard room on the first floor. The bed was the most comfortable we'd slept in India and among the best I've experienced anywhere. The... More

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

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
