We were upgraded to a suite room overlooking the pool with a four poster bed. The room was huge, as was the bathroom, all immaculately clean. The pool was a good size & quiet. We ate all our meals in the large restaurant which were of good quality & beer available. The coffee was especially good. The staff were all...

Lovely restaurant and staff great - good prices and pool would have been a boon had weather been warmer - close to the Taj too. There is not much to see in Agra itself but Fatiphur Sikri (50 km out of town) is an excellent place to visit.

My husband and I journeyed to Agra and stayed 3 nights in this Grand hotel. While many might want to be where the other tourist hotels were , closer to the Taj , the Grand Imperial is in the town but its only a 300 rupee tuk tuk ride to where you want to go. What a delightful experience we...

I really loved this hotel. Our favorite thus far. The reception attendant was extremely helpful, even assisting my daughter to tie her Saree correctly. My highlight was the pool, extremely beautiful, cool in the heat, and beautiful gardens around it are very well-maintained. I hope to return. Agra is busy, but really wonderful artisan work all around. I could not...

Five out of the six hotels in India and Sri Lanka chosen by Trailfinders UK for our private tour were of excellent top-quality, but unfortunately the Grand Imperial in Agra was a terrible disappointment not worth and far below the advertised standard. It may have a splendid history, but paying customers expect a bit more than that today. Bedrooms and...

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
