I stayed at the Grand Imperial with my wife and what a wonderful stay it was! From the decor to the maintenance of this old world property, everything was carefully worked out. This place has an old world charm to it but not without giving its customers all the modern luxury that they need. And they had the most helpful...

We stayed here while visiting Agra. It's a relaxing base if you want a break from the hustle and bustle, but still be in close proximity to the Taj Mahal. The food, room and pool are all to a very good standard, but the staff make this place exceptional. A genuine desire from all, to make your stay as good...

The hotel is a charming old property with nice public areas and large comfortable rooms. The pool and gardens are relaxing and the restaurant serves good food. The staff are friendly and efficient in general, however we left there feeling badly treated by the desk manager. We needed to cancel our final night and he insisted we pay a 50%...

We stayed at far better mid-range, heritage style hotels in India. The rooms smell very musty and the smell will linger on your clothing for days. The hotel looks great in pictures and does have a nice sitting area outside the rooms, but it's really not worth the price.

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

There are special rooms, old mementos, photographs and macho stories of courage and velour that can be recounted over and over again. 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.
