We stayed 40 nights here and it was amazing! The location is excellent for the station and the room and wet room were spacious with lots of hot water. Ali on reception was outstanding as were all his staff. He booked 10+ trains for us- many sleepers and long distance and gave us invaluable advice throughout our stay. We would definitely stay here again.

If you're staying in this part of Delhi you're probably an independent traveller who's more interested in location, security and possibly hygiene. Smyle meets these criteria well. This is my second visit there. Staff are friendly and helpful and when our train was cancelled at late notice, Ali was able to book an alternative at a modest booking fee saving us time and hassle. Rooms are basic but secure and clean. Towels are provided and hot water "out of hours is available by request". Ali also arranged Airtel Sim cards in the hotel. You need your passport and visa. If you're here in winter, it's cold so rug up. Especially for the rooftop breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights in this hostel. Room was more or less clean (sheets not extra clean but alright), bathroom was absolutely horrible + toilet almost not working. Second night was worse : around 1 am, A/C stopped working and it took 30 mins to "fix" it (all the night receptionist had to do was to

Hello Traveller. If you are writing a review in the middle of the winter and complaining about AIR Con not working, then I reckon you would have stayed with us sometime between 4 to 8 months ago. A lot has changed since then. Few bathrooms have been redone in terms of plumbing. 6 new air cons have been installed. I believe that your issues have been fixed by now for future travellers.

Literally spoiled our holidays. No renovation at all. Everything is dusty. The bathroom size is too small, no space between toilet seat ad wash basin. Not recommended at all! Please don't waste your money, there are much better hotels out there.

Dear Sir You just stayed for 1 night with us. Wonder how can we spoil your holiday in such a short span of time. But your feedback has been noted. We will be more diligent with dusting. Other than that, there is nothing much we can do about other points. We still feel that your review is a little harsh and does not depict 100% picture. From Management

Great stay at Smyle Inn. Friendly and helpful staff especially Ali who helped with Sim card, train tickets, booking a driver, restaurant recommendations and general advice. The location is perfect, near the metro and train station with many shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms are clean and the free breakfast is very good. Don't hesitate to stay here!

Thank you to the great staff members 🙏 Smyle inn was absolutely the best choice for my stay in Delhi. All employees are friendly kind and very helpful!! They tried their best at all times to fulfill all our needs and go beyond during our stay. They also provide extra services like car transfers to make your travel easier. Great location in the middle of the main bazaar road, 10 mins to the metro and train station. Rooms are large and okay to India standards. Seems to be the choice of many internationals. They have a lovely rooftop where breakfast is served every morning. Breakfast team is great! Special thanks to Amitji , Aliji, Rahji, Mohanji and Muksji - for your friendliness kindness and warm smiles.

Great place. We have been to this hotel three times and in our opinion it is the best place to stay in New Delhi. The rooms are clean and large just like in the pictures. Very good location . Close to metro station and trains. There are many attractions and restaurants in the area. People in the hotel are very helpful. They helped us with money exchange, Indian phone number and how best to get to a place. They made our trip easier.
