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.

I have wanted to stay at The Imperial for years and finally got my chance over new year 2016. Travelling with a friend, we booked a twin room. We were on the ground floor of the hotel with windows facing out to the back of the hotel, where groundsmen were walking by. It was winter and the room was cold,...

Having flown into New Dehli, as a start of our first visit to India, we were delighted to arrive at the hotel, after a long process through customs and the chaotic driving of India! It was thick fog/smog, which was to be the weather for our two night stay, which also meant it was chillier than we had expected.... The...

First stop on our first family visit to India. A great, grand, colonial hotel in the heart of New Delhi. It was just what we were looking for - great location, good security, good service and outdoor pool for after touring. The rooms were good and of fair size - but nothing too special. Would be more than happy to...

The Imperial has only one contender in the luxury hotel contest in central Delhi and I need not mention that other place. The Imperial's combination of luxury, attention to detail, service, amenities, and location make it the absolute best choice for any sort of stay in Delhi. The spa is marvelous, the 1911 Bar staff is fantastic (they make a...

I stayed here for three nights. This is a gorgeous property that has been beautifully restored. The food, service and ammenities are excellent. I loved being in the centre of town but cocooned in a lovely estate. My only complaint is that the beds are too hard. Otherwise a stunning hotel that won't disappoint.

We arrived late at night off our flight from London, check-in was quick and efficient but somewhat soulless given the late hour (after midnight). Given the time differences and sleep on the plane we decided to have a drink before retiring for the night...... to be told that the bars were all closed and that we'd have to order room...
