Huge room after free upgrade. Lovely bed and VERY clean. But, the WiFi did not work in the room, the toilet got blocked twice,and the repair staff were peculiar. Service at front desk merely average and the breakfast is overpriced. AC was good, we didn't use the pool as there were no women in there and my partner did not... More

Whether I'm there to se the Taj Mahal or for other reasons I stay at the Grand Imperial Hotel. Unlike many others, this hotel lives up to its name. British imperial style with original furniture and large rooms, makes you feel you're set back a hundred years. Good service and friendly staff, from gardener to manager, also adds to the... More

We should have read the reviews before booking this place. They claim that the property is heritage however the reality is that this is a tired run down place begging for some renovation. The reception is dark and dingy and that set the trend of our stay at the the Grand Imperial. We were upgraded to 'suite' for our planned... More

The Grand Imperial was one of my Favourite experiences. They Organised our trips and visits for all the sightseeing but since we had our own car. We didn't need to rent a car so they just Organised tours and guides. The pricing is reasonable considering the rooms and size.

Interesting hotel with nice colonial look. Although not ideal. Food in the restaurant was quite regular. Wifi in the room kept disappearing so we had to go to reception every time to get new login/password. We requested one big bed, but instead got two small beds pushed together, the mattresses kept sliding away from each other at night.
