The Grand Imperial Hotel Agra is just that, grand and imperial. It's located in a one hundred year old colonial purpose built building and still has the original bathrooms and plumbing. When I first turned on the hot water I got that faint rust smell that can only come from iron pipework, it took me back to my parents 1930's... More

Lovely colonial hotel with impeccable grounds and original period features throughout including bedrooms. Authentic indian welcome from very helpful staff. Both breakfast and dinner buffet was delicious. Ideally located for early visit to the Taj Mahal and return for breakfast. Disappointingly they had no gin in the whole hotel which we found strange for India. Be aware of the contrast... More

We had gone here for an extended weekend. Our experience was very good. The rooms are amazing. They have buffet breakfast and dinner. Both were excellent. Their lawn is an excellent place to relax after the dinner. While the spa is a bit expensive, the staff is extremely well trained. They are attentive to every need and extremely courteous. The...

Overall the hotel is well maintained and had an old world charm. Bedrooms clean and spacious with lovely furnishings, bathrooms basic but clean. Pool area enjoyable, pool clean, many couples sitting out enjoying sun, staff attentive to drinks orders and do not stare at women in bikinis. Breakfast not too exciting but fine. Staff hit and miss on reception, sometimes... More

As you enter the hotel , you witness a personal touch in the service by the Front office staff (Manish and Anu ) in a very traditional fashion which i am sure anyone will like.

Its 16 chambers of princess rooms and 14 deluxe rooms are a blend of the new modern comforts with old Heritage ambience.
