The wonderful staff told me that there are 5000 pieces of art in the hotel. I suppose one could pass a couple of happy days just studying them and then sitting in the atmospheric breakfast terrace absorbing. Like a previous reviewer said, it is not often that one is not somewhat let down. But i just loved my time here....

My husband and I always go to the Imperial Hotel for the 'buffet lunch' when in Delhi. The food is amazing and such a great variety. I look forward to it. The hotel itself is straight out of the Raj, the tasteful interior decorating is really beautiful and it is worth going there just to see all the art inside....

Everything you'd expect in a 5 star hotel, and more. In a town that is so polluted the weather report says "Today will be less smokey, The Imperial Hotel a respite of all that is noisy, polluted, and dirty. The morning buffet is one of the best spreads I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot... World class service and...

The marble inlaid floors,three storey atrium, fountains and lithographs complement the very well appointed rooms. The city centre location can make some rooms rather noisy and good views are in short supply. It has five excellent restaurants ranging from Indian to Italian. It also has a heated indoor swimming pool and spa. Generally the service is faultless.

The actual experience is often less than the promise of the brochure and/or website - NOT at the Imperial. The style, substance and indulgence of the place just absorbs you and with staff who fully complement the setting a memorable visit is almost assured. Even when a minor inconvenience caused us to ask if a room change was possible we...

I've stayed many times before. It's always fantastic. Two highlights to report this time: the charming concierge, Kohsheen, made sure that I could use taxis despite having no cash because of demonetisation; really great service. And The Spice Route restaurant served the best prawns I've eaten. Will be back in January!

From the moment I entered the hotel I felt like I was staying in a palace! Furnishings, facilities and staff were excellent. Just staying at the hotel was an experience. Numerous quality restaurants were located within the hotel. A reasonably priced car and driver were available through the hotel. The driver that accompanied me, Ajeet, was courteous, attentive, knowledgeable and...

The hotel building / architecture - fabulous. The hotel interior furnishings / decor / period features / antiques - absolutely beautiful. Even if you are not staying at The Imperial it's worth a visit. It's odd, that when I booked The Imperial some months earlier, I was worried that it would be like staying in a museum. The hotel chaffeur...
