Imperial New Delhi Hotel

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

No other luxury property in Delhi offers such an alluring combination of style and history.

Built in the 1930s, the Imperial blends Victoriana, colonial and art deco elements. Its architect was among a group, headed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, charged with shaping the look of New Delhi, the Raj’s impressive new capital.

Supremely elegant and notably classy, the fact that Mountbatten, Nehru and Jinnah – all pivotal in the subcontinent’s path to independence – met here simply adds to its appeal and ambience.

Displays of collectible artwork, turbaned staff, charming gardens and an enviable central location near Connaught Place make it one of a kind.

Surrounding area

Situated just off Janpath, one of the main roads leading to and from Connaught Place/Rajiv Chowk, its location could hardly be more central.

This is a commercial quarter of the city, typically thronged with office workers, shoppers and tourists during the day (the so-called Tibetan Market and Central Cottage Industries Emporium are around the corner) but surprisingly quiet in the evenings.

Nearby Connaught Place and its underground Palika Bazaar also offer plenty of shopping and eating outlets.
