Nicest upmarket hotel in central Delhi, superb decor, personal attention, great professional staff, nice restaurant, cushy lobby, spotless facilities and buffet breakfast, all this at a cost of course.

Its difficult to imagine a British colonial building in the heart of Delhi. Very impressive...well maintained. Food served was delicious, though very little choice for vegetarians. Ambience and the comfortable surroundings is worth a visit.

Imperial is a historic hotel worth visiting. Many artefacts from the imperial period. Several restaurants and bars, inside and outside. We had lunch in what looked like a Hindi Temple, a little dark, but plenty of interesting furniture and art objects. Very good food and service.

When I told the front desk person I wanted to change room because the room temperature just won't go below 24 degrees, his solution was I should wait another night and maybe, just maybe the temperature could go down. He offered to call the "engineer", but I declined. No use to have this "engineer" to come again after not once,... More

The gents at the 1911 bar are top notch ! There is a friendly atmosphere here at the 1911 Bar. I have stayed at this hotel to consider it my second home and I am treated like family every time I visit. I love this place and these people are wonderful.

Beautiful hotel in its own oasis in a bustling Delhi. Service second to none in lovely grounds. Menus to tempt you from all over the world. Stunning breakfast and brunch....the best we have had. Spa is memorable....great massages. Don't stay anywhere else. Lovely decor in Spice Route.....food could have been better.
