This hotel exceeded all expectations. I loved the history - the art work and the pool. I felt like a queen. The staff were all so lovely and even one of the cleaners in the hall was able to tell us a bit about the hotel's amazing history. And it is close to Khan Market and Greater Kailash for shopping!...

Large rooms, good selection of restaurants, fantastic pool and spa, efficient staff. Beautifully maintained colonial style hotel in central Delhi, attracts western business travellers and seniors. Italian restaurant is very good.

The hotel was beautiful, full of amazing artefacts to look at. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and went out of their way to give us the best possible service. I would defiantly recommend staying here or at least going to the restaurant and bar if you are in the city.

I stayed in the Imperial for approximately 10 days. Upon arrival, I was upgraded to a suite with a lovely bathroom, large living room, and separate sleeping room. Every morning, I made sure to wake up early to fully enjoy the breakfast buffet. The selection was incredible, and the quality of food couldn't have been better. For the first couple...

One of my all time favorite hotels in the world to stay at. This was my fourth consecutive April staying at the Imperial. I love the colonial decor and the interiors of this hotel must be some of the most outstanding in the world. However I must suggest some improvements. Stayed for five nights and on the third night was...

During our visit of New Delhi we wanted to stay at a colonial style hotel. The imperial ticked all the boxes. From the moment we arrived to when we left the service was impeccable. I visited the spa ( great massage) whilst my husband made use of the pool area. Our room was spacious, airy and light. With all the...
