The Good: Incredibly hospitable staff. Good location (if you're interested in experiencing the chaos that a Delhi bazaar has to offer, and within walking distance to the train station.) Free breakfast and free in-room wifi. Helped us exchange money, book tours and confirm train times. The Not So Good: Slightly run down rooms, inconsistent hot water, and surprisingly, the rooms...

We stayed here during our first 2 days in India. It has mixed reviews but we chose it based on friends' recommendations. The location is good as it is just in the main bazaar of Pahar Ganj. But if you are sensitive I have to tell you, you are going to pass through an alley with a public urinal so...

We booked the Smyle Inn because it was highly recommended. The taxi pick-up from the airport was nice and the travel services were very helpful. Our room was pretty horrible...dark, dirty and cold. Hot water was scarce. As first timers in India we chose to stay in a centrally located area thinking it would be easy to get around, and...

I stayed at Smyle Inn in December 2014 and January 2015 for a few days. The staff, especially Anil was very helpful. He helped us about everything we needed, including sightseeing and airport transfer. It's also very conveniently located in Paharganj. The breakfast on the roof top terrace was especially delicious. The room that we stayed in was small, but...

This hotel is perfect if you're travelling on low budget. Don't expect luxurious rooms, but the rooms are clean. Beds are quite hard. Clean bathroom. Great views on the outside roof terrace. Everyday there's a different breakfast served here. Super welcoming and friendly. The Smyle Inn travel agency is very reliable and good! We booked a trip here, and everything...

We spent two nights in Smyle Inn, arriving after an extremely long journey from Kerala. It's within very easy walking distance from New Delhi train station which was very much appreciated!

I stayed at Smyle Inn - in Nov and Dec 2014. Big thumbs up from me. I strongly recommend it. They are actually two places down same lane in Paharganj. I stayed in the back building both times. Wifi in rooms was very good both times (re: password changes daily at 10 am). Rooms too, though tight quarters, were comfortable...
