The Imperial hotel set back from the busy Janpath is a wonderful hotel. From security guards on the gate to the room attendants, the spa and restaurant staff the service is excellent. The hotel is steeped in history and just wandering the corridors admiring the artwork is enjoyable. Relaxing by the pool at the end of a busy day sightseeing...

The Imperial is a beautifully maintained historical hotel with lots of stunning hallways and grand public areas. We stayed at a good-size (around 50 sqm), Grand Heritage Room with high ceilings and period colonial furniture. The bathroom is on the small-ish side, however there is a decent sitting area with a full 3-seater couch and a single couch, as well...

We stayed here after three weeks travelling around Rajasthan and Bhutan. The rooms are huge, actually perfect in every way! The first evenings meal in the 1911 Restaurant was mixed and not memorable however the cocktails were excellent. The next night we dined at the Italian restaurant (San Germiniano) which was great and a change from the local food! The...

Took the chance to pop in for a drink in the bar as the Imperial is an iconic hotel and I had to experience it. The security is very good which gives you peace of mind. They are polite and courteous when carrying out the security checks. I walked through the cafe and restaurant and into the bar. The cakes...

I returned for a fifth visit to the Imperial Hotel after many years and was not disappointed. The staff, service and decor are exquisite. I expecially enjoyed the fragrance of Jasmine throughout the property. I stayed at the hotel as a female solo traveler and felt perfectly safe and well cared for. I would like to extend a special thank-you...

Yes this is an impressive looking hotel, the lobby and furnishings are very impressive but the rooms not so much. We were expecting so much more from the room but very disappointed. It was very tired looking, bathroom was grubby and I've seen better hairdryers in 3 star properties. We had issues with quite a few things in the room...

We went for High Tea in the Atrium. It's a lovely setting. I had emailed ahead to check they could cater for vegans. Turns out they can't even if they say they do. At least not enough for the money anyway. They do a lovely soya masala chai but you won't have any cakes or scones on your stand. Which...
