We stayed at the Smyle Inn for three nights. This was our first stop on a quick two week tour through India. We arrived at 5 a.m. and went straight to bed. The Bazaar area where it is located is an eye opener to say the least if it is your first time in India. It is a very dirty area with way too many touts and beggars.
All this being said, the room we received was very clean. The air conditioner did not work and the manager reluctantly gave us a new room where it did work. It seemed like the staff preferred to do nothing if that was an option. You had to be persistent in order to get what you wanted.
The price of the accommodation was good and it was definitely a clean room with a comfortable bed.
If you are just looking for a clean, safe place to rest your head and don't really care is the area is nice around the hotel, then this place is perfect.
