Really nice colonial type hotel, we had very large rooms on the second floor, after some hectic traveling we spent the day at the very relaxing pool, however that would have been spoilt if anybody else would have wanted to do it, only four sunbeds. we did walk out of the hotel but like most places there is nothing outside...

I couldn't fault the service at this hotel. Reading some of the older reviews there appears to have been some real enhancements, and we found the service at the front desk, restaurant and bar to be friendly, courteous and efficient. The food served in the restaurant was also fine, with a varied menu. We saw a good deal of maintenance...

This was not our first stay at this hotel and it won't be our last. The hotel and the service provided are great value and the front office manager Manish Verma goes out of his way to ensure that your stay meets all expectations. The rooms, as always, are beautiful, spacious and have possibly the most comfortable beds ever. A...

The building took one back to the days of the Raj and the grounds and pool were very pleasant. We did have a large room and bathroom, but it felt very outdated and the bathroom in particular is in serious need of an upgrade. The overall impression of shabbiness was not helped by grey and worn towels. This would have...

Great hotel, staff are very friendly. The lawn out the front is lovely to relax in. Rooms are very comfortable. Room service and breakfast were great. Not walkable to the Taj Mahal, so make sure you get a tuk-tuk. The only fault I could find is the locks on the doors are a bit clunky to operate (padlock) and the...

This hotel is like something out of the raj, very old colonial with what appears to be the original furnishings and bathrooms. Sadly I suspect it was the original plumbing too as the bathroom was soon flooded after 2 brief showers. The room was large and comfortable and the wifi worked. The garden and pool area were nice, the pool...

I would like to keep it short: for my two nights, the room was nice and clean, the staff super-friendly and helpful and the food was good. I also visited the spa for a massage: not really budget-friendly, but to recommend. I am very satisfied and have absolutely nothing to complain.

Hotel is only saved by its staff and its old fashioned charm. I wouldn't want to be there for more than one night. The plumbing and electrics are decades old but it sort of doesn't matter. The dining room seems to have no natural light at all and somehow it's easy to forget about that too. The hotel is over...

The moment you step inside these beautiful grounds it takes you back to a bygone time of imperialistic splendour. The rooms are spacious and clean although the bathrooms are in need of a remodel/tile update. The antique furniture and light fixtures are a treat.

THE GRAND IMPERIAL AGRA The Grand Imperial is the only Heritage hotel in Agra, and takes you into a world of Victorian Era. 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
