We have visited India many times over many years. This year we wanted to see the Taj before continuing our holiday on the beaches of southern India. We definitely didn't want to stay in any typical European style hotels while we were in Agra which is why we picked this one. We love the quirkiness of Indian hotels and this...

Beautiful hotel with staff very caring. Good restaurant with a chef that makes all the efforts to give the best. Have a drink under the galleries it is a problem... To much pigeons' nests above you with all the consequences... and it is a pity.

My wife picked this hotel in Agra to stay enjoying my 60th birthday. We were overall more than satisfied with our experience. We stayed there for total of three nights, two nights in Bahadur Shah Zafar Room in the first floor, and the last night in Meera Bai Room. Rooms are good and spacious with old world charms.

I REALLY wanted to like this place. It's a lovely property, and the rooms were perfect. They were filled with character, great bathrooms, comfy beds, spacious, and they provided a space heater, as it was January. However, the comforts ended there, unfortunately. Almost all of the rooms face an inner courtyard, and on the day of our stay, there was...

I put my foot down while selecting a hotel that the place must have a Lawn for me to play with my four yr old. I was darned against staying in BOX Hotels. And was I pleased with the place? More than I paid for I would say. Great Lawn, great corridors for my child to scoot around. The tall...

We liked this hotel that has plenty of history & harks back to the British Raj. The rooms are fine if a little dated, although without AC I'm not sure how comfy they'd be in Summer. We ate in the bar area & that was tasty & pretty good value. It was very noisy until 11pm but then it was...

I had read reviews before our stay, many were fairly critical but still scored the hotel fairly high, I feel the same way. On arrival I chanced asking for room upgrade, this was granted and we landed a suite. The hotel is very old and has a certain charm but an upgrade, electrical wiring particularly, is overdue.

I've never received such excellent hospitality! Very kind staff go out of their way to ensure your stay is comfortable. The rooms and the hotel itself are a whimsical look back 70 years.

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.
