This is by far the worst accomodation i have ever stayed in. On the first night when we arrived they had overbooked the superior rooms that we requested so two of my friends had to stay in an alternate room despite earlier bookings. The superior room we booked had the smallest bathroom i have ever seen, i am 6ft 1...

Thanks for taking out time to write such a detailed negative review. Seems like that we did not meet up to your expectations of the room / bathroom size, as we are a humble little budget accommodation. Regarding the travel services offered down the street that seem cheap- the first price offered is to gain your confidence and engage you...

I only stayed for one night when I had to transit in Delhi before flying back to my country. The location is perfect, just 10 mins walking from NDLS (New Delhi Railway Station) and about 30 mins walk to Connaught Place. The room is small but clean, staffs are helpful, excellent value for money!

The best accomodation of our whole trip, very clean and great service. Breakfast was great and the showers were good pressure with consistent hot water!! The best part however was the travel desk helping us plan the rest of our trip in India, I can't explain how helpful this was. We were able to book train tickets, flights, along with...

This is a very humble place, but clean, friendly, and right in the middle of the main bazaar. The staff were super helpful with everything. Great if you are on a budget, and want something authentic, and wonderful customer service.

This was the second time at Smyle Inn. I travelled with 24 other people. Check in was late at night but very smooth. We booked tours with them around Delhi and the Taj Mahal. Both were excellent and we had our own minibuses. The breakfasts were good and the rooms clean. The plumbing was also great (a problem often in...

The hotel is divided on two parts cheaper and more expensive, laying not so far from each other. I stayed at cheaper one. It is still decent accommodation in the roll of narrow lanes of Main Bazaar area. The staff is nice and helpful.The way of getting hot water I didn't like at all. Guests have to call the receptionist...

Dear Peter Thanks for your kind review. I must apologise for the miscommunication regarding the Credit Card Payments. We have been accepting Credit Card payments since year 2000. I am surprised with your observation as there were two Credit Card Terminal machines on the reception counter especially during the DEMONISATION period. For your information, we accept all forms of electronic...

Great budget option in tourist - backpacker area of New Delhi. Only stayed a night but room was absolutely fine, good internet, and very reasonable price. In an alley off the main bazaar so not so noisy, close to station. Delhi a bit of an overload of sensations - some good, some pretty bad but would definitely stay here again....
