We spent one night here when touring the Golden triangle. The room was nicely furnished but a bit dark. The bathroom was horrible. Damp with ancient plumbing. The push button toilet flush was leaking, dripping water onto the floor. The towels were grey and damp. There was only a tiny shelf to put things. There was a good flow of...

Fabulous heritage hotel with all the old charm and nostalgia of old India. Rooms are beautiful and quirky with fourposter beds. Staff cannot do enough for you.

Staff were friendly and provided a welcome with flowers Room was good but was let down by ancient grey linen and towels. Please replace these with new ones. Also the fridge was broken and staff did not seem interested when informed Food was average for a hotel of this status and the bar lacked atmosphere

The hotel is a lovely building, we had super rooms (upgraded to poolside suites) and the food and service in the restaurant were good. However, a series of unpleasant incidents marred our stay. 1. Our pre-arranged driver and large car failed to show up at Delhi Airport and by the time the small replacement arrived we'd been there for three...

I can't say too much about this hotel as we arrived quite late and checked out early the next morning. However, what we saw of it was good. The check-in procedure was quick and painless and there were plenty of helpful porters around to take our luggage to our rooms. This is an OLD hotel and, to be honest, both...

I need to say first up that I was sick when we stayed here so it probably coloured my opinion BUT the issues I had made being sick so much worse.

Located in the heart of the city of Agra, the hot seat of the Mughal Empire, the 100 year old Grand Imperial is constructed of biscuit bricks commonly referred to as Lahori bricks, which were also used in the construction of the world renowned monument of love - The Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. Post World War II the Imperial Hotel, as was then known, played host to distinguished guests such as the crown princes of England and Japan, Prince Aga Khan, Shri Moti Lal Nehru, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Jai Prakash Narayan and renowned cinema personalities such as Dilip Kumar, Madhubala and others. Its 16 chambers of princess rooms and 14 deluxe rooms are a blend of the new modern comforts with old Heritage ambience. The property consists of old heritage, Victorian style arches, rooms with large areas and ceilings, wide corridors and spacious verandahs, open gardens, etc. Enjoy the Victorian-Mughal Era, in the bar, with its array of excellent wines, and beers.
