As the name of the restaurant goes "Smyle Inn", that is exactly how is was received on the day i reached delhi. The room's are extremely spacious and comfortable. Free-WIFI makes it even more special. Hot water and A/C are provided on a request basis. Complementary breakfast provided at the hotel was as well sufficient and sumptuous. But i disliked...

I stayed at smyle inn twice on my trip to India. Smyle has everything you could want in a budget hotel, right in the heart of pahar Ganj. And the included breakfast was absolutely delicious!! The hotel staff were always so helpful, and the easy transfers put the icing on top!

I contacted the Owner Harish via internet, he was very prompt in replying. Due to my solo traveling in India, I didn't check out other companies, I just went for it! I was supposed to had a tour of Delhi when I arrived but because my flight was delayed, the tour was cancelled and was taken directly to meet the...

I stayed here for a couple of times while in Delhi and I had an overall good experience. The rooms were clean. The airport pickup service was punctual and the location of the hostel is great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Anil at the reception desk was very nice and polite along with the caretaker.

An good budget choice. The staff are friendly and very helpful, booking train tickets for only 50R commission saved the hassle of a visit to the station.The rooms small but clean with clean bed linen and there was constant hot water. The breakfast fairly basic put adequate and you can drink as much tea/coffe as you want.

We stayed here for three days. This area is filled with lot of foreigners. Right from start harish and Anil were very kind and helpful. Clean bath rooms, very big bed, clean bedsheets and good TV. + It's true that there may be very little noise, as the rooms are closer. Quality of milk served in breakfast can be improved....

Firstly Id like to say how lovely and helpful the owner was but overall the general cleanliness, noise and atmosphere wasn't great. However my main criticism lies with the travel agency they provide at the hostel. So, they offer you an opportunity to see most of Rajasthan (14 days) with a personal driver for a stupid amount of money. Clearly,...

Very good value. Kind of a weird location down an alley on the teeming Main Bazaar, but also very close to the New Delhi Metro Station. So it's generally convenient, but also hectic. Internet is fairly slow, but it works, and it's included. You get what you pay for here. Private "superior" room was exactly as expected: clean, private bathroom,...

We arranged an airport pickup which worked very well, he was on time and showed us straight to the hostel. Dont let him take you to change money, its his friend and the exchange rate is much better at the hostel. The room was small and basic but all we needed for 2 nights in delhi. All very clean. Quite...
