When we arrived we didn't think it was as clean as we hoped. But then we saw the rooms, and we were positively surprised! They were big, they had nice and soft beds with a tv that was showing all the good channels (like HBO) and also the bathroom was very clean. Overall a nice hotel, fine food and a... More

On arrival the welcome was very warm and friendly from the staff. I visited the toilet in reception which was dirty and wouldn't flush- this gave me a poor impression from the outset. Our room was large with a separate sitting area. There were lots of beautiful period features and furniture. However, it felt very grubby and unclean. It is... More

Perfect if you want to stay in a more traditional Indian hotel. Also well placed for sightseeing for example the Taj Mahal. However it wasn't for me as rooms very dark and a bit musty. Bathroom was very old which again some people would like but I prefer all mod cons. Can't review food as did not eat in the... More

Rooms look lovely and the pool is amazing! Down side is the room smelt due to bad plumbing and my friend was bitten by bugs in the night. Staff were lovely and very accommodating. Beware of peeping Tom in the pool area. Wifi slow.

Post World War II the Imperial Hotel, as was then known, played host to distinguished guests such as the crown princes of England and Japan, Prince Aga Khan, Shri Moti Lal Nehru, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Jai Prakash Narayan and renowned cinema personalities such as Dilip Kumar, Madhubala and others. Its 16 chambers of princess rooms and 14 deluxe rooms are a blend of the new modern comforts with old Heritage ambience.
