I (31/m) stayed here with my gf (35/f) for 1 night in early August 2016. Pros: Located right in the middle of the main bazaar area - Room was good for the price Cons: Staff were polite but took forever to complete simple tasks (copying passports, serving breakfast, etc...)

I was happy with this place and would recommend it. It lacks charm and has only basic comforts, but unless you are willing to spend a lot more on accommodation in Delhi, this is standard. It was clean, my AC worked (just ask them to turn it on when you enter), the TV worked, there was hot water and a... More

I have been to this hotel previous occasions but this time the service was very bad. I informed them about my arrival a week before but still there was no arrangement of room. However they allotted us a room which was under construction. The washroom was very small and the room also was very small as compared to other rooms... More

We spent the first night there in a room with leaking air-conditioner and a huge hole in the bathroom. However, we were automatically moved the next morning to a much cleaner room but did not have hot water. The free breakfasts were very nice but the tours were a little mismanaged. During both our tours with Smyle Inn, we had... More

Situated in a good spot just off the Paharganj main Bazaar, 10 mins walk from train station. Open latreen at end of the alley but soon remember to hold your breath! Rooms are basic but clean. Lots of backpackers in and out. Basic breakfast. Perfect for a base for shopping in that area. Tip: remember to email when arriving as... More

We made it to the Smyle Inn at our first day in India. Maybe Dehli wasn' t the best choice to start a month in Asia. But the nice owner of that place helped us to calms down and find coping. He shpwed us around in the area around the Bazar. The place is really central near a big train... More

Dear Guest Thank you for choosing Smyle Inn for your stay in Delhi! Pahar Ganj being in the older, though central, part of Delhi can sometimes be overwhelming for first time visitors. It is overcrowded but completely safe and very well connected to all parts of Delhi. Most travellers enjoy being in the middle of the activity and therefore choose... More

The rooms were clean and spacious, air conditioning was brilliant! Location is fantastic because it is in the centre of the busy main bazaar. Great place to stay in Delhi and meet other travelers. Be warned not to drink the cold milk at breakfast though - we're almost 100% sure that it gave us Delhi belly

Dear Guest, Thanks for your review. We are glad that you found our location convenient and that you could connect with other travellers. However, it was a concern to know that you believed the cold milk in the breakfast gave you Delhi belly. Please understand the milk we use is pasteurised and comes in sterile packets. In any case we... More

A dodgy back alley of the popular Main Bazaar will lead you to the Smylee. Considering the absurd prices in Delhi, if you are looking for a budget AC room with some comforts yet not making your wallet cry, this is the place for you. Clean sheets and towels, small but decent bathroom, and if you are lucky and get... More

This place is in the corner. However, it is worth going there. You get free breakfast and if you ask for any help, they will help you right away without any hesitation. It is very near from railway station and metro!!

I stayed at the Smyle Inn on each of my trips through Delhi and it has never dissapointed. The dorm is clean, air conditioned and very quiet considering being in Delhi. The dorm feels very secure and I would highly recommended it to other solo female travelers. When they overbooked once, I was competely taken care of and upgraded to... More
