IF you have a chance to stay here, do so...the simple size of the room, with its great taste makes this such a lovely stopover...the hotel staff are there for you and the breakfast leaves no one wanting. The outdoor pool and gym area are also major draws, but most of all...the value for what you get, how you sleep,...

The Imperial has much to recommend it - beautiful rooms, many dining options, excellent location, impeccable service. But it is very large, somewhat pretentious, and very busy. But for the "heritage" architecture, furnishings, etc., it is quite similar to an upscale big-city business hotel. Our room was extremely nice as well, but also quite noisy - the noise from a...

Arrived at Hotel which appeared opulent and charming. Our room was unfortunately directly looking out over the pool area which was being renovated. Hence was noisy like a building site might be expected. We had not been informed there would be no pool or poolside facilities. However the staff did upgrade us to a quiet part of the hotel. Restaurants...

Asked for reservation on short notice by email and got confirmation within 10 minutes - excellent customer attention! Indian food was outstanding, service attentive - and the overall location just beautiful! For us a visit to the Imperial Hotel is a must, when in Delhi.

In general this is a high quality hotel in New Delhi. The rooms are in keeping with the historic feel of the hotel yet provide the expected range of modern amenities. The hotel is located on busy streets and there is some street noise when outside or around the pool area. The breakfast is buffet and is of a very...

This is a real gem hidden away in central Delhi. The place is absolutely fabulous! The whole Hotel has the scent of jasmine. The beds are heavenly soft - just what you will need after a day out in busy Delhi. The service is also top notch! Classic colonial luxury with a modern twist.
