After a long drive from Jaipur, The Grand Imperial was an oasis in a desert. The colonial style Mughal - British architecture is well maintained. The staff ever smiling and very helpful, the food in their restaurant was just to our taste, lovely pool and services. The Wonderful Experience !!!!!!

This hotel is really overpriced looking at the small size of the property and unprofessional attitude of the staff. Not recommended at all. Service is absolutely bad. Even after requesting ten times for a service, you would not get a response. Location is also not good. Though rooms are spacious and clean.

Not the best of the stays on our Golden Triangle tour. Its an old heritage hotel which is overdue for maintenance. The bathrooms are gloomy and dark. You get rusted water in the taps. The water smells rusty too.

We stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. We loved the decor and the ambiance. The gardens were a welcome retreat after a day out and about. The food was great. We intend to return next year.

Its 16 chambers of princess rooms and 14 deluxe rooms are a blend of the new modern comforts with old Heritage ambience.
