You can tell that this was once a spectacular hotel, however as with most places it's perhaps a shadow of its former self. Our rooms were fine, the restaurant was ok and for the price you can't complain. The pool area was well kept and the hotel/restaurant staff were sometimes a little too attentive though it may have been because...

the hotel overall is very nice. thought I would recommend (while at dinner) make sure that they understand your order, some mistakes can occur... the pool area is very nice and comfortable but the seats and the floor could be cleaned a little more. the staff anyhow is super nice, always there to help! a very aesthetically pleasing hotel!

We booked this hotel thinking we got a good deal on a heritage style stay. The hotel is old, but is in need of maintenance. Good things about the place: - Staff gave us a warm welcome, and quickly arranged a room when we arrived early. - Close location to the train station and tourist spots like the Taj Mahal...

We booked with some trepidation after some of the negative reviewers talked about musty bathrooms, old plumbing, dark rooms, insects etc. But our ground floor room was fine. The restaurant was pleasant surprise: by avoiding the buffet and going for a shared main course from the a la carte, we had a great meal at good value. Watch out for...

It is one of the oldest Heritage property where once can indulge in oneself. Large room with huge beds -- old royal style rooms, high ceilings, tastefully designed and gives a warm and cosy feeling.

The wide arches and the red Lahori brick walls are a blend of Colonial and Mughal architecture.The Grand Imperial offers enough history to keep guests engrossed for days on end. 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. The multi-cuisine restaurant, bar, health club, spa, and lush lawns, makes your stay memorable. ... more   less
