            Safety checks were extensive, but made you feel safe and comfortable. Staff were friendly and on point. We were happy to have a wonderful upgrade given it was our first travel after being married (honeymoon), with a chocolate cake in the room to congratulate! Spice Route was some of the best food we have had in India. Lovely high tea! Highly recommended to escape the hustle of Delhi.

            Nice hotel BUT some serious issues”
            I have stayed at the Imperial before and have loved it but this time I found the experience lacking in several ways. First, my room was very musty and every time I entered the room I smelled that musty smell, something that is not really acceptable in a fancy 5 star hotel. Second, the pool is beautiful but you can smell sewage when you are hanging out there, which is not at all pleasant. And, when I ordered lunch at the pool, I noticed that the salad arrived with a big piece of hair on it, which ruined my appetite. After I immediately returned it, they tried to charge me for the drink I ordered with the meal, which surprised me. One would have thought that they would have comped that drink given the salad incident. In the end, I had to speak to the pool manager for them to comp the drink. Not good service and a negative experience. Third, I stayed at 5 hotels in India and the Imperial was the only one where I had an issue on my final bill. They tried to bill me for a $24 tip at the spa even though the spa receipt clearly showed them to be incorrect. Instead of acknowledging their mistake and apologizing, which would have been fine, they tried to repeatedly defend it even though the bill showed them to be clearly incorrect. Again, not good service for a 5 star+ hotel. On the positive, I had a good experience at the spa (although it was very expensive). I also liked the afternoon tea. Overall though, I preferred Claridges, which is usually about half the price but has far better service and my room was much larger and much nicer than the Imperial. Claridges also has a great, reasonably priced hair salon, Silhouette, where I got a great haircut.

            While this is an amazing historic hotel, the staff at the Italian restaurant were in such a hurry to get us out. We came in about 40 minutes prior to closing and were the only ones in the restaurant. The waiter paced behind our table the whole time and when he handed us the menus, he just stood there tapping his fingers one his notepad. I had to ask him to give us a minute. We ended up boxing our food and taking it to the room, in addition to canceling dessert because we felt uncomfortable

            This is the second time I have stayed in the Imperial and it is well worth the money. This hotel oozes history - it is where Nehru used to meet Gandhi to talk about India's independence. The rooms are superb, breakfast amazing, and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Love this place!

            Well located in Old Delhi's Connaught Circle; numerous shops in surrounding area; excellent restaurants and bars in the hotel. Staff very helpful, for example rail tickets, tourist sites, etc. There are less expensive hotels in the area, but Imperial is worth the added costs because of its overall ambience, décor, and service.

            For the fifth time we've enjoyed the amazing hospitality of this facility! It has become rare that hotels are able to uphold the high standards - nevertheless the Imperial always feels just like home. We've enjoyed our two nights like the first time. The close proximity to the Connaught Place (only 10 mins away by foot) with the small restaurants between the white pillars of the recently renovated arcades is amazing. It was also very kind that we could stay in the hotel until 3pm on the last day of our stay since we had our flights at midnight. The hotel's own paid driver to the airport made the experience perfect. We can also recommend the restaurant within the hotel called "Spice Route". The thai curries are extremely tasty. After a long time the WiFi access is now also included. For years we consider this hotel the best in Delhi which it will remain - especially after our interesting discussion with the Assistant Sales Manager Divan Ghai. We are looking forward for our next stay.
