This is really a beautiful hotel. The rooms are architecturally gorgeous. Everything shines - the marble floors, the mahogany wood trim and furniture, the brass, the chandeliers, and the bevilled glass. The service is warm and pleasant. The pool and surrounds are really lovely. Just wow.

We stayed 4 nights with our 3 kids in August 2016. The hotel is amazing and the swimming pool beautiful. But the service is quite cold and anonymous, notably at the brasserie. It's a bit disappointing for an hotel of such category.

I and my wife visited there and enjoyed a lot. Each and every facility was there it was like beyond our expectation. We were tension free to live and want to live for days. I recommend to all the people should visit make that place more and more popular.

No question about it! "The Imperial Hotel" in New Delhi is one of the most beautiful and comfortable hotels in the whole world! After its complete renovation, staying at magnificent "The Imperial Hotel" is like a dream being accomplished! Come and feel the "Old Raj" breeze at its halls, corridors and suites!

Competing against world famous franchises, this is Indian hospitality at its best at the price charged. Very large rooms and bathrooms, free buffet breakfast with a crazily large spread, small and personal lobby. Good spa and two delectable restaurants without any overbearing service. No frills but luxury nevertheless. Value for money and relief from impersonal five star culture of Delhi.... More

We stayed here twice, each for a few nights. The hotel is impressive from its appearance to its staff. The rooms were nice, but we never got a working hair dryer! Other than the hair dryer, and the fact that the bars in the hotel always closed earlier than we wanted them to, this was a first class property -... More

Returned after nearly 15 years, during this period have stayed in many hotels in India but this is as one of the best. Rooms are fabulous, spotlessly clean, luxurious and with modern facilities.

The Imperial is a grand old relic of a bygone era and is beautiful hotel with classic wood and brass décor which has been lovingly preserved. It feels a bit like staying in a museum?
