Oh dear having travelled around the golden triangle in the last week what a terrible disappointment. We have stayed in the best hotels and this certainly is not one of them. Endless cold corridors , no life or energy , empty bars, a bar bill for £50 for two double gin and tonics and to top it all a cold,...

Had the pleasure of staying at this magnificent hotel recently with my husband and 2 sons aged 13 & 9 years. The interior is regal with antique paintings and calming fountains. The rooms are spacious. The location is fantastic as it is within walking distance to Connaught Place so shopping and restaurants are easy to get to. It is also...

wonderful ambiente , wonderful people, very good food.... one star less, because totally overprized and no good offers for business people... I enjoyed staying there, it is an oasis of peace in the middle of stinking and nervous new Delhi. But for this high room costs one could expect more luxury and more cleanliness.. But for the mostly very dirty...

Was there for dinner and managed to explore around the hotel. The christmas decoration on the main entrance was beautiful and creative. Love the old yet modern design of the hotel with a colonial feel. Would love to stay there and experience the hospitality one day.

From the moment one arrives at the secluded front entrance of this grand old hotel there is a sense of timeless elegance. If first impressions count, these are the ones we got from The Imperial: the liveried doormen and security men under the portico stand elegantly with their curled moustaches and turbans, and are discreet in their various roles. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip to India. It is a beautiful hotel with obvious history. The staff was welcoming, if a little distant and there was always someone in the reception area to give assistance. Our room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. We had a tasty snack in 1911 on the terrace....

Nothing to complain . Well maintained and great hotel to stay, friendly staff ready to help. Good central location. Staff was very pleasant and welcoming. I am not sure I would recommend to eat at restaurants , they are expensive with no great taste.

My wife and I enjoyed a comfortable stay at The Imperial Hotel. The staff is efficient but not intrusive. The central location can't be beaten. The grounds in front of the hotel are a calming offset from the hubbub of the city.
