Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights in Jan 2017 in chamber of prince room. Overall an OK experience and the Hotel definitely has historical charm. It is a bit cold in January but we had an extra portable radiator in the room so it was fine. The pool looked great but it was to cold during our visit....

We have just spent two nights here. We enjoyed the Chamber of Princes' room upgrade - It was quite grand. The bathroom is quirky but these little inconveniences (it is a heritage hotel - code for not everything works as expected) can easily be forgotten when you eat the excellent food & enjoy the ambience here. Agra is chaotic &...

Despite an undeniable charm, the level of noise in the rooms is just unbearable. There is no glass windows in the bathrooms, that are directly facing the noisy street behind the hotel (they just put a piece of cotton fabric to hide the window, but no glass), and the busy street in front of the hotel is so noisy that...

After a long train journey from Goa expectations from this hotel were high and were duly met. Staff are professional courteous and more than helpful. Our room faced the garden but could benefit from a window for a view of the outside and some fresh flowing air as it can get a bit stuffy. We would have upgraded to a...

I picked this hotel because it was a heritage hotel and I wasn't disappointed. I was met at a front desk with a beautiful flower garland. I had a standard deluxe room facing the lovely garden and enjoyed its distinctive heritage feel, with its beautifully patterned floor and dark wood bedposts. Yes, the bathroom has its quirks. Water does drip...

This hotel has excellent staff who certainly go the extra mile for their customers; sadly the rooms etc do not quite match up. Our room epitomised the word 'quirky'! It was quite dark with very heavy furniture. The ensuite bathroom was made from a corner of the room and the walls didn't reach the ceiling, the shower was over the...

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel in Agra and was an excellent choice! The decor transport us 300 years ago! The service was great! The buffet for breakfast and dinner has good choices! The bathrooms need to modernize a little!

Being late in the trip, we were a bit tired and they did not have our room ready for new year's eve. We received a complimentary upgrade, but couldn't utilize it. The gala dinner was also a bit overpriced. The wifi was terrible. If the wifi was better, this hotel would definitely be recommended though

THE GRAND IMPERIAL AGRA The Grand Imperial is the only Heritage hotel in Agra, and takes you into a world of Victorian Era. The wide arches and the red Lahori brick walls are a blend of Colonial and Mughal architecture.The Grand Imperial offers enough history to keep guests engrossed for days on end. There are special rooms, old mementos, photographs and macho stories of courage and velour that can be recounted over and over again. Located in the heart of the city of Agra, the hot seat of the Mughal Empire, the 100 year old Grand Imperial is constructed of biscuit bricks commonly referred to as Lahori bricks, which were also used in the construction of the world renowned monument of love - The Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. Post World War II the Imperial Hotel, as was then known, played host to distinguished guests such as the crown princes of England and Japan, Prince Aga Khan, Shri Moti Lal Nehru, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Jai Prakash Narayan and renowned cinema personalities such as Dilip Kumar, Madhubala and others. Its 16 chambers of princess rooms and 14 deluxe rooms are a blend of the new modern comforts with old Heritage ambience. The property consists of old heritage, Victorian style arches, rooms with large areas and ceilings, wide corridors and spacious verandahs, open gardens, etc. Enjoy the Victorian-Mughal Era, in the bar, with its array of excellent wines, and beers. The multi-cuisine restaurant, bar, health club, spa, and lush lawns, makes your stay memorable. ... more   less
