Hotel's Favourite
Old world luxury and charm supported by an amazingly helpful and kind staff. The hotel is gorgeous- marble floors, antiques everywhere, mahogany clad fireplaces, tapestry like rugs. You feel like you are walking into an Agatha Christie set. The staff is superior in every way and truly want to help. Breakfast room is stunning in decor and the food is outstanding. The chef makes the best omelettes. I appreciated that both women and men were engaged in multiple service roles within the hotel. The spa offerings are just perfect. The massage and facial were some of the best I have ever had. Offer yourself time by the luxurious pool or indulge in your richly furnished room with excellent linens and towels and traditional marble bathroom. The fruit basket and personally written welcome note were quite an unexpected set of treats along with cookies. Loved the “Himilayan” water. Stay here and relax from a noise filled Delhi.

If you want to experience excellence - stay at the Imperial. This is a living museum that combines elegance of the past, with first class hospitality of today. Literally every single person, from porter to management, were on it. For them working at the Imperial isn't a job, it's a way of life. I first stayed in this Indian Jewel in 1988. 10 years later I was back in 1998, so this time was my third visit. Each time was special - and different. But each time was definitely memorable. Without question, this is THE place to stay in Delhi.

Excellent hotel no words left to express how fulfilled and content I am to stay in this hotel. Value for money. Cleanliness immaculate. Mr Vikas, Mr. Loknath left no stones unturned to ensure I am taken care of. I felt sick since a week till now extended my stay becos I was unwell. Had a very bad experience with Le Meridien hotel Management and staff they need customers who have money to fill the hotel, more than customer service. I recommend everyone to stay at Imperial hotel it's a heritage property value for money. Sumptuous food. Omg will return back with family for sure. Kudos to the management and team.

I had the loveliest stay at the Imperial New Delhi with my mum. We were greeted with hotel signage at arrivals at the airport and escorted to meet our driver Bhudev who brought us to the hotel smoothly. Both our welcomer and driver Bhudev were professional, personable and friendly. Bhudev took us for a bit of sightseeing the next day, to Humayun’s tomb, and for a nice lunch and a bit of shopping at Cottage Industries Exposition Ltd (Barakhamba Road). Bhudev suggested the lunch spot which was delicious and we were well looked after by him during the day. We enjoyed a phenomenal meal at the Imperial hotel’s restaurant, the Spice Route, with a fascinating walkthrough of the artistic and architectural design and features of the space. The Spice Route restaurant staff were outstanding - from the hostess to our waiter. The Imperial had the most extensive breakfast buffet from our two week trip of a half dozen hotels. We also enjoyed a blissful afternoon at the spa and had a lymphatic drainage massage which was divine. The spa facilities (with jacuzzi) are spectacular. We also made use of the gym which had the machines, free weights and mats we required. Our room was comfortable, clean, spacious/well-proportioned and beautiful. Nice to have both USB and UK charging ports! We also enjoyed a delicious masala chai tea on arrival.

We stayed two nights here. The room was quiet, well appointed with a marble bathroom. We overlooked the pool area. Crisp white sheets, and a very comfortable bad. All staff lovely and attentive. Food very good. My husband loved the breakfast dhosa. The decor throughout is from another age - gloriously opulent. The pool is heated ! And huge ! We were the only ones to swim in it and it was wonderful. Towels however are as old as the hotel, this is the only thing letting you down !

I had booked a Hollywood facial appointment at the spa with the spa manager athinee ! As soon as I reached the hotel , I was escorted by her to the spa ! I was treated like a royalty by her and the staff there and after completing the necessary form and a refreshing hot welcome drink and a cappuccino , I was taken for the facial by one of the best experts there , Lee.

Beautiful 5 star hotel. Staff were great, facilities were great, food was tasty but expensive as were the drinks. Great to have a heated pool. The only negative was the hot water. It wasn't hot. I had Luke warm showers each day. I informed the concierge but I dont believe anything was done to fix it.

A gorgeous old world luxurious hotel oozing with charm. Outstanding service at all times. The hotel became our home base as we travelled to a couple of cities after attending a wedding at the hotel. It literally became a second home as we checked in and out with ease. Amazing spa treatment (ask for Moi as she was superb). The restaurant, ‘Spice Route’ had delicious complex Kerala food. The Italian restaurant on the premises was a total surprise.. amazing food with outstanding service. The restaurant, 911 served wonderful dinners besides the daily breakfasts that were delicious. The staff were always gracious, professional and efficient. Definitely a hotel at its finest.
