“Smyle Inn Hotel”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This review concerns with the Smyle Inn Hotel located a few meters before the Smyle Inn Hostel and run by the same people.

I booked the hostel but was upgraded to the hotel at no cost. Clean and surprisingly quiet. Nice but small bedrooms. Staff were OK and helpful. Breakfast is served at the Hostel though. Recommended.

The Smyle Inn was a very good find. The staff are extremely helpful and the travel desk upstairs is excellent for helping with your further exploration of India and Delhi. The place was very clean with good size rooms and beds (You can get 3 good mates on the double beds easily if you need to cut costs further - although floor space for back packs may then be a bit tight! The back alleys away from the main Bazaar can be a great place for finding cheap food snacks and not too daunting if you stick to the busier thoroughfares.

Nearby is the main New Delhi Station for destinations across India. Over a long bridge and walkways next to the station you can find one of the Metro stations BUT the cloasest Metro Station is the opposite way up the Main Bazaar. Use the Metro to get around Delhi and you will find that with many of the listed attractions one location a day is enough and if food is taken then you can often picnic and relax fare a few hours. The Temple at Akshardam is amazing but you cannot take food inside as you have to buy their reasonably priced offerings. Here everything is cheaper than other tourist sites as it is aimed at the Indian budget. Although only opened in 2005 and of modern coinstruction it was built using traditional methods and an ethos that kept Art as a focal point for expresssing the religious views of the Swami. A fantastic experience! You can easily spend several hours at Lodhi Gardens and it is an easy visit by Metro and free. Another place to view and spend more hours than a quick tour allows is Humayan's Tomb also reachable by Metro.

The hotel was very nice and clean. We stayed there two nights and we were satisfied. The staff is helpful, we got a lot of information which was very good.

The hotel is located very close to the New Delhi railway and metro station about five minutes to walk.
Overall: very nice.

Staying at Smyle Inn made my experience in Delhi great! I was nervous about coming to Delhi as a lone female traveller, but Smyle Inn is in a nice, mellower part of the city. The shopping right near the Inn is great! The beds were comfortable, it was off the main street so it was quiet, and the room was very clean. The staff was incredibly helpful. My shower wasnt working the best, and they changed the shower head right away and it was perfect! Hot water too. I arranged for Smyle Inn to pick me up from the train station, and though it might have been slightly more expensive than finding my own ride, I highly recommend doing that. I avoided having to haggle with a driver who probably would have ended up taking me somewhere else to get a commission. Do stay at Smyle Inn when you visit Delhi!
