Excellent Stay in New Delhi
Reviewed 2 days ago

I have recently stayed at the Imperial Hotel in New Delhi. From its magnificent colonial architecture to its wide range of restaurants, I would highly recommend the Imperial.

Only a step away from Connaught Place, it is a little oasis in the middle of Delhi. It has substantial historical significance, and is an excellent place to stay. While there are other 5 star hotels in New Delhi, there is a reason that this hotel is a little different from the rest. If you like standard experiences of the big chains then you certainly won't do wrong there; however, if you want something different and unique, then the Imperial is for you.

By the way, if you love food, you should eat at the hotel's restaurants. The quality is superb, and while a little pricey, it is basically on parity (actually much less) than you would pay in any major Western city. Really fantastic staff and management.

Thank-you all - had a very lovely experience and sure to be back.

An imperial experience in a princely city
Reviewed 4 days ago

I stayed with my adult daughter for three fun days in Delhi. This hotel was regal in a very British way, with decor that harked back to the days of Queen Victoria. It is a luxurious facility in a very different way from the glitzy hotels of the 21st century. Superb service, great breakfast, impecable rooms! Worthy of this world capital city, I enjoyed for pleasure but surely it will be wonderful for business as well.

Located in the enviable central Delhi, from where all the must go places were an easy access, the Imperial hotel is the best choice if you are planning a trip to the capital. Mind you, it’s not a generic city property because from the moment you set your foot in, it’s like walking into a different era. It is a premium Luxury hotel which I was lucky to experience, brimming with antics and old world charm.

It has earned the moniker ‘Museum Hotel’ since it was conceptualised in the 1930’s and has since then served to the likes of British Aristocracy, Nehru, Jinnah and Bapu (must check out the wrought iron seating used by the trio in yesteryears in the 1911 restaurant). It’s like walking back into history, the hotel is a blend of part old world splendour and part modern sophistication, chic hospitality meets timeless elegance at this hotel.

Shimmering hallways, walls adorned with beautiful and rare lithographs and paintings, and sprawling lawns, the hotel has a wealth of indoor and outdoor venues.

It is hard to imagine a property like The Imperial in a concrete jungle like New Delhi, it is equivalent to the The Raffles in Singapore and The Savoy in London.

The restaurants are so well appointed and the rooms are beautiful with high ceiling and art decor. It will be a shame if you miss the overwhelming experience at The Spice Route, one of the best restaurants in the world. This hotel is like a diamond in a coal mine, the premise is beyond ones imagination, it is difficult to fathom the ingenuity showcased in conceptualising such a hotel.

The service and the staff are the whelming success of this hotel, they are warm and professional and willing to serve. The service is unobtrusive yet attentive which is a rare mix. My check in was quick and efficient, thanks to the manager Rishabh who was professional and welcoming and front desk staff who welcomed me with warm smiles and an equally fresh warm towel. The F&B team is on their toes and willing to serve and spoil their guests (special mention of Manager Rohit at Spice route, who was professional and witty) , and the homely feeling extended by the HK staff (everyone) makes u feel at home away from one.

It is embarrassing since my review comes months post my visit, but better late than never, this iconic hotel is a thumbs up for me and a must visit recommendation.

Can’t wait to return to my second home.

Best Hotel Experience Ever
Reviewed 5 days ago

My partner and I stayed at The Imperial on 3 separate occasions in May-June. The experience was incredible and we can't recommend it highly enough. Although we loved it on every occasion we provided some instructive feedback on ways to improve the experience. On our last visit we were delighted to find the management and staff had gone to considerable effort to follow up on our feedback in order to make it not just 5 star but a 6 star experience.

Don't miss The Imperial when travelling to India
Reviewed 6 days ago

Living at The Imperial is a unique sensation. The building reminds the rigorous art-design Hollywood mansions of the 30's while the interiors are simply amazing: luxury marbles everywhere, hundreds of ancient original drawings (which are worth the stay in itself) of british era on almost any wall, springing fountains, not to mention the four or five top class restaurant offering different style of cuisine - indian, continental, italian and some others - and the superlative morning breakfast  served either in a large colonial/liberty-style room or in an adiacent glass-walled space facing the garden.
But the best is yet to come when it comes to speak about the deep kindness and absolute professionality of the whole personnel from the impressive sikh chief of guards at the entrance up to the Concierge and, last but not least, the Desk Director Mr. Sanjay Waali, the man that any traveller loves to meet during a trip and every high-end hotel should have in its staff. So: if the goal is to make the customer feel like an emperor, the mission is accomplished at The Imperial.
A particular thanks for the complimentary bunch of fresh roses and patisserie chocolate cake delivered in room (but I think being in honeymoon is required for this last benefit).
