While this hotel is adequate and a bargain for the price, it's most notable quality is it's 'quirkiness'. I've read lots of the reviews and I can relate to many of the comments. Seems next time I book in (I can't believe I'm writing this... ), I will deal with the guy everyone mentions in the reviews not some of... More

I stayed at Smyle Inn in Delhi last week and I recommend the place, I will for sure come back there before taking my flight to leave India. It is just by the main train station, really easy to get there. After 2 months in India, it was one of the best value for money places I stayed. Clean place,... More

I stayed at Smyle Inn when I first got to Delhi. I only stayed three nights but this place that came highly recommended by fellow travellers did not disappoint me. The staff especially were very attentive even before I arrived, sending a van to pick me up at the airport. I got in at five in the morning and they... More

Well managed, cheap pick up and drop off from the airport, good wifi, decent breakfast included, and clean reasonably-sized rooms. Nothing wrong with this place, and after seeing other similar priced hotels, I would happily return here next time!

I stayed at the Smyle Inn last winter. I booked reservation via email 3 weeks prior and even stopped by the hotel the day before I was to stay there to confirm all was ok. When I arrived in the afternoon of my booking however I sensed something was immediately wrong. The manager asked why I hadn't arrived at noontime... More

Why did you wait for almost one year to destroy our reputation. If we were so bad, you should have left a review instantly. But anyway since you chose to write, here is our take on your comments. Check in starts at 12 noon and you were told about that. You did not pay anything for the reservation and it... More

In the capital of a country the expectancy of budgetary accommodation with most of the luxury features is really a surprising factor. When my friends speak about my rigid attitude in trying to look for expensive places to stay because of the comfort and hospitality, I decided to try out the budgetary accommodation few months ago and chose Smyle INN...

Great value for money. They picked us from the airport which worked well. I stayed in a double room with AC which was great. Showers good. Location very central in the Bazar and keeping it real. Would stay here again. Free wi-fi. Hotel manager Rishi was great in organising excursions, travel and accommodation for us.

cosy and clean and the bathroom was also clean and of a good size, with a decent sized shower with good water pressure. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and definitely the best we had on our two month trip of India.
