4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is a throwback to the colonial era, with the decor and atmosphere all designed to evoke that bygone era. The rooms are very generously sized with high ceilings, tall windows and heavy high-end furnishings. The bathrooms are large with great water pressure. Be warned, at times you had to let the water run a bit till it became... More

Hotels modernize all the time touting new high tech features. The Imperial Hotel is no slouch when it comes to things like in-room Internet -- free and reasonably fast. But it unapologetically retains one foot in the 19th century -- in the heydays of the British Raj. Its public spaces, banquet halls, conference areas are festooned with lithographs, paintings, of...

I stayed in this hotel in the month of July this year. It is a beautiful hotel located in the heart of the city and yet very calm and quite. All aspects of this hotel are excellent be it stay experience, food quality and other facilities. I loved breakfast the most. A lot of choices and breakfast quality is superb.

It's a privilege staying in this hotel which was built in 1937... Nicely maintained property and very prompt service for one's needs.. A great vacation place to feel royal Indian heritage in Delhi... Breakfast is very average and monotonous and surely can be improved.

This hotel was absolutely fantastic!! It is stunningly beautiful, has the best service you can imagine, is quiet, peaceful, and welcoming. It was full of historical paintings, stunning sculptures, and complete attention to aesthetic detail. The pool was glorious! Well worth the price! I would totally stay here again!!

I like the old world charm of this hotel and that it's not a huge structure like the other luxury hotels. It's beautiful and quiet inside, which is much needed for your eyes and ears after spending your day in Delhi. I enjoyed the breakfast each morning, though the selection was just ok and I wished the fresh juices were... More
