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 stayed at smyle inn for 3 nights and had a great experience. The rooms were clean, the water was hot, the breakfast was delicious and the staff was very helpfull. We are backpackers on a tight budget, and we really got value for money at Smyle Inn.

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! Our room was small but very comfortable and modern. The breakfast on the roof top terrace was delicious. The service was excellent, we could leave our bags for the...

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...

What a wonderful little Inn. There are two buildings at the Smyle Inn located less than a minutes walk apart. We stayed at the newly updated building. The owner is so delightful and extremely helpful. The main staff members are nice and cordial. The accommodations are amazing for the price! The rooms was updated, but still in the style of...

This hotel/hostel is in the bazaar, but let’s assume that you already knew that. It’s in the middle in urine avenue, but for the money that you pay I would say yeah, it’s worth it, go for it. If you ask me for advise, and have little bit more money to spend, stay out of the bazaar area, its culture...

We stayed for two nights at Smyle Inn and were very pleased with our stay. The front desk staff greeted me and brought me to my room right away, even though it was 6am. The breakfast included was just enough food, and the rooftop patio is very pleasant. The staff was always very courteous and went out of their way...

This is my third visit to this hotel. Harish, the owner, Ali at the travel desk, Alam and Aneer at the front desk are all very nice and very helpful people, no doubt about that.
