This was the first hotel we stayed in on our 14 day trip. It was a haven from the madness of Delhi. If you want to get a feel for the old Empire this hotel does the job. The rooms are spacious and the service we found very good. The staff in the bar were great and when my son... More

the imperial was the first hotel on our whistle stop tour of india and had booked to stay 3 seperate nights. Whilst it is beautiful the service does not cut it. We found that out after staying at the oberoi in Agra and the taj in udaipur. The staff are dead from the neck up - they do not engage... More

Well renovated and exclusive hotel in the heart of Delhi, on Janpath. Spacious rooms with all necessities. Excellent food, but the breakfast buffet could be better for a 5-star. Also the fact that wifi is obtained for an extra cost, is outdated. All respectable 5-star hotels offer this complimentary to their guests. Nonetheless, a hotel with international standards !

A group of us stayed at the Imperial for 6 nights at the beginning of September. The staff were pleasant and helpful - nothing was really too much trouble. The rooms were spacious and well kept - the housekeeping staff did a great job. The hotel is an oasis in a busy, bustling and vibrant city. My only minor negative... More

Other than a little post-colonial guilt, this was an amazing experience. Spacious rooms, high ceilings, classic appointments, grand dining and meeting facilities, great pool-gym-spa, super food, central location... I'll stop, you get it.

should start by saying that Ive stayed here several times before- last occasion I stated 'possibly best hotel in India' - its gone beyond that now... from the amazing welcome from all on arrival to the sublime spa, the atmospheric bars and restaurants, the history told on the walls via the great old prints, wonderful food, luxurious rooms, everything is...

This is easily one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in, the sort of hotel where you can savor your time and hope the days just keep going. I wouldn't even consider any other hotel. The facilities are wonderful: the public areas are spacious yet intimate, and unbelievably clean (polished marble and brass everywhere); the pool has fun/exotic elements... More

We had a wonderful stay at the imperial. Loved our room, the pool, and restaurants. The staff was very professional and helpful. We used the hotel's. At service every day to take us out to see the town. The hotel concierge was great in setting that up. They even drove us as far as Agra to visit the Taj Mahal... More

Fantastic service, fantastic location, great pool, all good really. If you are in the mood to treat your self, it's expensive by Delhi standards, but in my view well worth it. The only thing that grated a bit was the commission scam going on between the doormen and the taxis. The drivers have to pay commission to do the pick... More

The multitudinous staff are smartly attired, eager to assist and always primed to offer a hands together ‘Namaste’. The rooms are quiet, very comfortable and seem to lack for nothing [‘Hira’ dealt with all of our additional needs]. One really feels pampered and special in this hotel. The buffet breakfast is amazing [thanks particularly to red liveried server ‘Laxman’ and... More
