The Imperial is a gem of Delhi - classy, luxurious and refined. I was greeted - "Welcome back home!" as I arrived at the property. Staff was very warm and ready to receive me upon my arrival. Check-in formalities were all done in the room. Staff from housekeeping to room service attended to me very promptly. Room service was excellent... More

Some folks come to have tea, I was luck enough to stay here. Tons of staff to take care of anything and everything you wish. Great pool. Nice rooms. Makes you feel like you've stepped back in time to a more classical, romantic time in Delhi.

This was the first night stay of a 2-week visit to India, and it was a lovely haven following the initial introduction to the roads, noises and general urban manic-ness that is Delhi. The welcome was friendly, driver for afternoon tour was very helpful, surroundings beautiful and well maintained, dinner tasty and pleasant - all wonderful. Only negative was hearing... More

The Imperial is an excellent a Hotel, beautifully appointed, attentive staff, magnificent rooms which are spacious and luxurious. Take time to view the thousands of wall prints which give a fascinating insight to the Raj and British periods. Restaurants are very good, bar staff superb, beware G and T's are often trebles and can cost up to $30

This centrally located property is outstanding in all aspects. Great food, luxurious amenities, spa, swimming pool etc. Check the special packages on the hotel's URL. Sometimes one can catch a great deal.

Stayed 7 days in Room 227, Grand Heritage Room.....beautiful and spacious, has separate tub and large shower. Lovely hotel, with gracious staff.

What can you say about a hotel that has History, Culture & an Era all embedded into one? An ode to Indo-British era...the 4000 odd paintings reveal a lot of history & the subtle art forms a reminder of the early 1900's. Furniture at vantage points finish the story of that period. The rooms were beautiful & splendidly kept. The... More
