“Superb!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

It remains one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in! Everything about this hotel is carefully thought out by its management, and well executed. Great reception and easy check in. Nice quiet room away from the Metro construction. Great breakfast, and a good choice of restaurants for the evening meal. Ideally located, with Cottage industries just 200 yards away for all your prezzies!! Overall, its a 10/10. If you can afford it, then do it!!

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear are the quietest. Avoid the front at the moment due to possible construction noise...

Elegance galore! Everything was 5 star - excellent restaurants but the standout was the breakfast buffet! Lovely deco style and old world style pool. Indulge in the spa with complimentary visit with the on site Aurevedic doctor for that type of massage. Top quality service in all aspects.

I stayed at The Imperial for 5 nights. Check in was quick and easy, the staff were friendly. My room was really nice, spacious and clean. The breakfast selection was great, there was such a good variety. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. Room service was good and the menu selection was OK. The location is really good, central and close to the markets. For a business trip it was good as there is wifi in the room and a business center. (Printing is really expensive, especially colour).

I would recommend staying here and would stay again.

The Imperial is beautiful and has more high-quality artworks than the museums we visited in Delhi. Service was efficient and friendly. The Indian restaurant was excellent - although I found the service a little over-attentive - where they seemed offended if you poured yourself a glass of water. Breakfasts were also high-quality.

We began and finished our trip in the Imperial and it provided a great memory as it is full of character. I would definately stay here again if I visited Delhi.

Room Tip: This is a no-smoking hotel including in the grounds (outside there is a smoking hut), so if you do s...

I stayed in this hotel twice during a 10-day visit to India, sharing a room with my 9-year old daughter, and traveling with my parents. The Imperial hotel is beautiful and old-school grand, but the service is what makes it unparalleled in my experience. Hotel employees from the person who greets you when you arrive to the front desk to the room service were all friendly & efficient, and even custom requests are executed quickly and pleasantly.

The amenities are also stellar, from the Thai restaurant (Spice Route) to the bar (Patalia Peg) to the main restaurant - and the breakfast buffet was our favorite of the 5 hotels we stayed in during our India visit. My daughter loved the swimming pool, which has a fountain in the middle of it (a first for us), and the gym was perfectly serviceable: Enough cardio machines and weights, and some space. There was a spa and yoga studio I didn't have a chance to visit, but I hope to have the opportunity on a return trip.

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have much of a view, so if this is important to you, be specific when you book.

My intention in visiting India was to savor the heritage buildings. This hotel is a class apart. Amazing service, impeccable rooms and a lovely breakfast make your stay here delightful. The British heritage is still delicately maintained with all the modern amenities. The service staff are prompt and you are totally pampered with their hospitality. A little expensive but totally worth your money. So if you are a lover of history, comfort and class this is an indulgence you will remember.

Room Tip: Dont miss the breakfast , it is truly a lavish spread.
