My partner and I were very disappointed with The Imperial as we raised the fact that we had no warm water during our stay without it being fixed. We were also told in one of the bars that they had no cold champagne. During breakfast I was also told there were no ripe mangoes as it wasn't mango season, only to question this and then be served the most beautifully mangoes.

I hosted a meeting for a group of 8. We all stayed at the Imperial Hotel. It was a wonderful hotel with impeccable service and restaurants, not to mention a first rate spa. I would return and recommend it to others who want a sense of British and Indian history. The art work exhibited around the hotel is exquisite. The hotel is not a run of the mill chain or for those chasing points. It is for the guest more interested in experiencing a bit of history, fine dining, and luxurious comfort.

We decided to try the Imperial on a recent trip to Delhi. On arrival we were really pleased. The hotel exudes old world charm and is a really beautiful building. The manager gave me a guided tour on the way to my room and explained some of the history. All the floors and hallways are amazing, furnished with wonderful artwork and great furniture. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathrooms likewise. So the facility is amazing! BUT! We didn't always feel the warm welcome we've been use... Read more

The Imperial sets the standard for superb service. You won't ever have to open a door and they will cater to your every need. The Imperial is located just off Connaught Place just up the street (1 block away) from the Tibetan Janpath Market and across the street from the govt-run Central Cottage Industries. This is important to know if you want to shop as there are many touts who will try to lead you astray. We especially enjoyed the great complimentary breakfast in the atrium of the 1911 re...

A wonderfully preserved colonial property in the heart of Delhi. Service is excellent, as is the decor and food. Their bar, the patiala 69 has some wonderful cocktails, especially their signature cocktail section. The hotel has a large collection of colonial medals and other memorabilia like a signed photograph of King George V and queen Mary, a pair of mirrors gifted by them on their india visit, photographs etc. Rooms are nice.

Having stayed here once before many years ago, I looked forward to returning and it didn't disappoint. The Reception area was very differently laid-out ...preferred the old one but everything else was fab. It is as beautiful and atmospheric as ever. Staff are attentive and the array of options for chilling-out plus beautiful food make this a haven of interesting tranquility in the middle of an enormous city, Thank You 'Imperial'!

I stayed for two nights, alone, at The Imperial. This is a luxury hotel, and frankly I would not normally stay in such a place - I tend to think that if I am sleeping most of the time in the hotel, I shouldn't splash out. Mean? Maybe, but I mention that to put this review into context. I paid something like $85 per night for bed and breakfast, (a full English cooked breakfast). For an upmarket hotel, so central in a capital city, that seems to be good value for me. Staff very attentive to eve... Read 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.

Its public spaces, banquet halls, conference areas are festooned with lithographs, paintings, of British ( mostly Victorian-era) India, even the odd deer antlers.

We stayed here at the start of our month long holiday in India, and it was a wonderful place to arrive in. Our room was exceptionally comfortable, and looked out over the gardens, although the gardens themselves were not in a very good state. The breakfast here was one of the finest we had in India, with a large range of Indian and Western dishes. Service was charming, and the missing star is only because of the slight lack of atmosphere, and the dismal gardens. Highly recommended.

If you're into the colonial aesthetic, this place is going to knock your socks off. It's a living museum, that will make you think you're living in 1940's Delhi. That might turn some people away, but it's hard not to take some enjoyment out of the mouth-watering breakfast spread, the superb spa facilities or the endless corridors featuring art on all the walls.

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 collection of paintings (some originals and others reprints from the owner) throughout the hotel was amazing and is an art gallery! Staff was excellent and the best service I have experienced in a long time. Special mention of ‚??Lovely‚?? at the reception who went the extra 10 miles to be helpful. ... Read 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 - clean, comfortable and classy!

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. Very convenient location. If you can tolerate a slight worn out look, this is a great hotel.

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! Indulge yourself being almost a "Maharajah" or a "Maharani" for one day, two ... Who knows? Enjoy!

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.

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.

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.

Service very good. Setting beautiful. Real hotel with class and character. Feels homely, yet elegant. WiFi a little slow, and very annoying for it to be limited to three devices! Food & service in the Spice restraunt was first class.

Stayed here for 2 weeks as part of work and holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Restaurants in the hotel are excellent. Had a Chanel store inside which got the wife very excited. Service was excellent and gym facilities are good. Excellent location in the centre of Delhi. Got duped by the auto drivers for overcharging. But that has nothing to do with the hotel. If you get bored with the food at the hotel you can just step out and there are loads of hotels serving Indian food. Throughly enjoy... Read more

A little context before I describe our experiences. We are a couple of 54 and 60 who like our luxuries but are equally keen to get value for money. We like to travel high end but still worry about cost - so, for example, tipping is always an issue! This trip involved visits to Delhi, Agra, Ranthambore National Park (for the Tigers), Jaipur and Amanbargh. I will be posting individual reviews of each location and the local sights etc and all will have this leader. The total package was put tog... Read more

We spent our first three nights at The Imperial Delhi as the start of a three week holiday in India. What an absolute pleasure! The Imperial is a beautiful old style hotel with every modern convenience. Service and staff were impeccable and the food was delicious in both the Italian and Asian restaurants. The pool area was wonderful and the spa fantastic. I hope that we will be able to return to be spoilt by the fabulous staff at The Imperial!

The Heritage Suite is one of the finest in the Hotel. The décor is classic British Colonial mixed with modern contemporary, very much reflecting the multi-cultural shifts of this City. The suite is well equipped and the 550 square footage provides ample room - The beautiful balcony over-looking the well manicured gardens adds to the vintage colonial ambience of the Hotel. With a poor back problem, the firm mattress of the large King Size bed was a huge comfort particularly after a long flight ... Read more

The hotel is REALLY LOVELY. I am a seasoned traveler who really enjoys the finer things in life. I found The Imperial very nearly immpecable. The entrance is attractive with creative fresh flower arrangements (hats off to the florist) and the halls of the hotel boast many beautiful prints and paintings.

The Imperial Hotel is well located, within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Connaught Place. It is a magnificent building, surrounded by beautiful grounds and--mindful of security concerns--a tall wall (landscaping mostly conceals the razor wire) and a substantial security presence at each entrance. The public spaces are elegant and in excellent repair. We stayed in the most basic ("Imperial") room, but there was nothing basic about it. It was spacious, comfortable and quiet;... Read more

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at the Imperial. We had an amazing room (269) which offered all the comfort you can expect. Food at all the restaurants is solid to delicious. The big advantageous of this hotel is its location, next door is a metro station and Connaught Place is in walking distance. What was a bit disturbing is the attitude of certain (senior) staff, which I think is totally unnecessary in a hotel of this class.

Having visited last year and had the most wonderful lunch I decided to visit again. I'm travelling on business from the UK, a solo female. It didn't get off to the best of starts when two men who arrived well after me were served first. I was given a very limited menu and I asked if I could have a burger, they didn't do them. I ordered the chicken triple decker sandwich. After 15 minutes the server said they'd prepared the wrong item and I would have to wait another 10 minutes. When my sandwich ... Read more

The Imperial was a very welcome sight after a 2 bust drive from the airport. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. The staff are very welcoming are nothing is too much trouble. We had a lovely meal in the Spice Route restaurant and a great history lesson from the hotel manager. As you would expect in a 5* hotel the drinks in the bar are a little pricey.

I stayed in the hotel for almost 8 weeks a few years back for work. The hotel itself is a stunning building, on beautiful grounds that make it feel like an oasis in the middle of New Delhi. The rooms are maintained in as close to original look and feel as possible, but the downside to this is the lack of modern upgrades. Breakfast was included in my rate, and the food was wonderful on each visit, and the chai was a perfect accompaniment. Connaught circle is a few blocks walk and there and plent... Read more

Truly excellent hotel with magnificent art work throughout and an imperious level of service. We got there after a tiring 13 hour journey and where transported back to the days of the Raj with all the bad bits taken out. A must for every traveller in India with a bit of cash to burn. You really cannot go wrong here, the rooms are great and the grounds and pool are stunning 10/10

I love this hotel. Throughout all of my travels, the Imperial still stands out as my absolute favourite hotel. The hotel brings me back to a period of Indian history that my parents and grandparents would often talk about. The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms are stunning, the food is delightful (The Spice Route is outstanding) and the pool is a 10/10. It is located right in Cannaught Place where you can shop for anything and everything you are looking for. I often book a car with the hotel to take ... Read more
