Built in the 1930s, the multi award-winning Imperial is irrefutably the city’s finest with its airy atriums and Victorian-era décor. The exquisite rooms and regal suites are reminiscent of British India with old prints on the walls, 4-poster beds, and old-fashioned furniture.

2. Oberoi – New Delhi

Luxury hotel with view in Delhi.

Hotel phone: +91 (0)11 2436 3030
This recently upgraded and much-loved hotel exudes even more elegance, luxury, and charm than before. All rooms are attractively designed and have full-length windows; the mid-range rooms feature colorful decor, prints of old Delhi, spacious sitting areas, and huge bathrooms. World-class amenities include twin pools, free yoga lessons, boutique arcade, and several restaurants and bars. Next to a golf course, this iconic hotel is, however, a bit distant from the major attractions.

3. Leela Palace – Diplomatic Enclave

Luxury hotel with heated outdoor pool in Delhi.

Hotel phone: +91 (0)11 3933 1234
Relatively new hotel that looks and feels like it’s from the colonial era with its lavish lobby and restaurants and tea lounges filled with elegant old-fashioned furniture. All accommodations are very spacious and feature twirling bed-stands, plush rugs, prints of Indian kings, and marble bathrooms; some suites feature private plunge pools and butlers. Stunning, heated infinity pool on the rooftop. Reasonably quiet neighborhood, but distant from major attractions.
