Reviews for The Imperial New Delhi
I spent a week at this hotel and everyday I took a different route to and from my room to soak up the history and the detail of this building. Also had to build in an extra 10 minutes on my walks due to having to stop and chat to the staff, who are very friendly. Anyone who wants to see brilliant Art Deco lighting, this is the place, absolutely beautiful collection of original fittings throughout the hotel.

Celebrated my birthday in 1911 restaurant of The Imperial. It could not have expected better food and better service. Had Pasta and Paneer and both were well prepared. Manager, Mr. Balwant took good care of us, was extremely professional and cordial. He also gave us a complimentary cake. He also made sure we knew the historical significance of the hotel and restaurant in particular. Chef Alok came and met us personally to enquire about food. Server Mr Ishrar was also very good. We also checked out other restaurants and was particularly impressed by live music in the Indian restaurant (dont exactly remember the name).

I loved the style of this hotel but it is fair to say that it is a little off the mark when it comes to real 5* luxury, but I found it charming and the service was great. I loved the bathroom with fab vitrolite tiling.

Such a beautiful, historical hotel. The decor is stunning and the rooms are spacious and clean. The seating areas around the hotel are all beautifully decorated as well as the outdoor pool. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you're comfortable. We were lucky enough to stay during India's 70th Independence Day and the hotel came together to provide all the guests with a performance from the marching guards as well as kite flying and Indian snacks and treats :) what a wonderful stay! Thank you so much!
The most fascinating detail about the imperial is that it is a perfect oasis of calm in the hectic and noise of the moloch called Delhi You enter after the usual security check( Europeans will be surprised that checking in a hotel and a flight) attracts the same security procedure- and suddenly it is cool, quiet and relaxed alone this seems worth the price... Staff is friendly and appears on the whole better trained than in other hotels in India Some highlights The spa The offer included a complementary massage/ spa/ manucure session- whilst this normally not our " thing" we booked it as free and where blown away the treatments and services provided where excellent and despite being a freebee there was never the feeling corners were cut or you were rushed - perfect The rooms upgraded to grand heritage rooms they offer everything once could possibly need ( and more) are in excellent condition, with comfortable beds nice bathrooms and so forth, they are also very quiet What could be better Gastronomy as a whole Nothing we ate or drunk was really bad or poorly prepared however for (almost) European prices you got to live up to the quality as well and the service 5 o clock tea nicely presented tea tray however the nonvegitarian sandwiches could have been better and tastier they were dry and boring the sweets were ok teas were good and so was service The famous patella bar lacks atmosphere and the selection of drinks is smaller than in the main bar - the big problem however is the lack of service - the attendants do know little about the drinks they offer and they struggle with standards - neither the martini nor the old fashioned were good the martini I did not drink Spice route restaurant The restaurant is beautiful and superbly decorated- the staff tell you in depth how it was resourced, built and more I would wish they would have similar knowledge about the food or if they have it share it as happily We went with a spice route journey of spices menu Disappointing that we were unable to change or not have one dish - my wife does not like sprig roles and wanted them changes we were told this is not possible normally in a five star hotel this answer does not exist and a change will always be facilitated it might be chargeable but this was not the question The menu had 9 courses served in three tranches Some it was good one curry dish even very good but none is memorable to this day think of decent corner Asian restaurant rather than top quality restaurant For this the price is too high I would have expected the meal to be like in hakkasan as this is the sort of money they charge On the other side they had a decent wine list with high value bin ends a bottle of pomino Biancas helps you over some disappointment with the food A pro pos wine list you are on your own with it as I did no come a cross a sommelier but this can be fun... So insummary the culinary experience does not quite live up to the rest of the hotel I would give 5 stars for the hotel and services and three for the restaurants hence 4 Break fasts were very good and offer massive choice, though Would I go back? I love the building and the quiet and I would poss pick another offer but for food I would head to masala library or downtown
