Everything about this hotel echoes the best of the days of the Raj. It is one of the most stylish hotels you will ever visit in Inda. A calm oasis in an otherwise manic city, the Bar is a quiet haven of relaxation, the bar staff ultra-attentive without being intrusive, the rooms are simply perfect. The restaurants are World class... More

We did not stay at the hotel but were told, while in Delhi, to take in their fabulous Sunday brunch. The quality and variety of food was amazing and well worth the somewhat high price. The garden sitting area was calm and enjoyable. Service was impeccable. One warning: pace your self in order to enjoy much of what is offered!

Not only is this a beautiful luxury hotel, with a great staff and lots of on site restaurants and activities but it is an oasis for the mind and body in the middle of a really busy city. I thought the non-Indian restaurant food was only OK but it was nice to get some variety after a few weeks traveling... More

We stayed here two nights: it feels like a top spot refuge from noisy and polluted Delhi, including a 'memory lane' colonial experience, matching similar iconic hotels in Asia and Aftica. No negative comments whatsoever, but somewhat less personalised than other hotels in India.

This is a lovely hotel which I would highly recommend if you are staying in Delhi; however, I wouldn't necessarily recommend staying in Delhi compared to the many other beautiful places India has to offer. The hotel is grand and has real presence. The rooms are good - but Mrs Foodi8 did think that the bathroom products were particularly substandard... More

Wow. What a contrast between inside and outside the gates of the Imperial. A step back in time, architecturally to the 1930s and much earlier in terms of spirit and memories. We just went for a long, lazy Sunday brunch on the terrace overlooking the lawn and greenery behind (as well as nearby modern brutalist building) and had a lovely... More

We came here for a few cocktails in the famous 1911 bar. Amazing cocktails and a great choice on the menu. Lovely bar, perfect service.
