New Delhi's best hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 19, 2010

Few hotels in the world impress me in the way the Imperial did when I stayed here in Feb/Mar 2009 and again in Jan 2014. Opened in 1931 in the newly built capital of the British Raj, the legendary Imperial was the city's first luxury hotel, located on Queen's Way, today's Janpath. The hotel building, designed by the architect D. Bromfield, follows Art Déco lines on the outside, while maintaining a mix of colonial and Victorian styles in its interior. Long corridors and spacious rooms with high ceilings are furnished with an impressive collection of Victorian furniture and 19th century sketches of Indian monuments. Every possible five star amenity is available on the grounds of the hotel, including several superb restaurants, an incredible new spa and fitness centre, and an outdoor swimming pool, all accompanied by excellent service. Staying here was such a pleasure that I found leaving the hotel rather difficult. Naturally, the Imperial is one of the city's most expensive, but discounted rates over the stated rate can be found online.

An "Imperial" experience

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 2, 2006

Hotels of the turn of the century or in the early 1900`s must have been like the Delhi-Imperial: aristocratic, exclusive, luxurious and big, offering exquisite services, very much depending on your status.
Large rooms, partly decorated with colonial and indian antiques, a colonial restaurant and brasserie as well as an Italian, an Indian and Asian restaurants leave no wishes open.
The hotel has a large garden area, outdoor pool and several al fresco restaurants and cafes respectively. It is situated in the heart of New Delhi, close to the business and governmental districts.The hotel has also a permanent 'Art Galleries', which houses an art collection as well as antiques that the hotel has acquired over the years.

Unique Quality: Flanked by 24 King Palms one feels imperial right from the check-in. Oldfashioned, but beautifully refurbished and very well kept hotel.

Directions: Close to Connaught Place;airport: 17 km., railway station: 3 km.
