Felt like home”
Our experience at Smyle Inn was VERY nice and I highly recommend this place... specially for newcomers! (which we were). They sent somebody to pick us up from the airport, sthing that I am very grateful to have booked - even when we always prefer the 'local way'. Here, things are different, and during our stay we heard of MANY people being scammed while taking tuktuks to their hotels (In case you don't book a pick up, do NOT believe that all hotels are fully booked, they will say that to make tourist pay for a car to take them outside Delhi paying crazy sums of money). Smyle Inn welcomed us warmly and they gave us a very nice room, with a clean own toilet with hot water upon request. There is a phone in the room to contact reception whenever you need, which is handy. The staff is very nice and they help whenever it's possible. There is also a travel desk so you can get advices, book tours or buy sim cards, if needed, and a computer to use. That was useful for us because we could upload and backup our travel photos :) Wifi works great. There is a rooftop where they will serve a complete breakfast (it varies between western and indian breakfast, any other day), and you can also get some samosas or other indian snacks. Location is great, in the heart of Main Bazaar and 6 min walk to Railway Station and Metro Station. Do NOT expect beautiful surroundings, Main Bazaar is not the place for that ;) but it is a hectic indian place with lots of shops, restaurants and pharmacies (just 2 min walk). There is even a gym in the lane!, it's name is Muscle Town, they charge Rs.200 for 24 hrs (open 6-10am and 4-10pm) We stayed for 6 nights instead of 2!, and even when part of that was because I got sick while eating outside... the good thing was that I felt like home here. I was happy and grateful to be at this hotel, where I felt safe and clean. I have nothing bad to say about Smyle Inn, but good things, and thank you a lot for making us feel good. Thanks Harish for al
Dear Carola Thank you so much for your detailed review. Your kind words mean a lot. It was a pleasure hosting you. We look forward to see you and your friends again. Regards Harish
great value for the money”
Extremely helpful and friendly staff including travel guy who arranged our bus to Dharamsala. Great location in the midst of Pahar Ganj. Very clean. We stayed at the Smyle Inn #2 which had standard rooms...somewhat small but large bed. Good enough. The hotel was bodered by small alley ways that were noisy till mid evening with people yelling, dogs, horns, etc but after mid eve no problem....this noise comes with the territory in Pahar Ganj. Smyle Inn #1 has superior rooms and people we met said very quiet. In any case I would stay again with no hesitation.
Inn with its Own Unique Personality”
Very impressed. Inn's posters and design which is unique in India, and shows an Inn which caters to budget international travellers - travellers of international expectations. Very clean. Located in a great location - central to places of interest and amidsts the bustle of a market/bazaar where one could get great bargains. The subway (which gives quick access to the airport) is within a short distance. Certainly, Smlye Inn is great value for money. I was very appreciative of its staff AND its owner, Mr Harish Sharma. In moving from one room to another, I misplaced my wallet which held my cash, cards AND passport. It was returned to me promptly by a member of staff! Very honest members of staff who were also polite and prompt in their services. Then, on the afternoon of my departure, I had problems accessing wifi, etc. I had no idea at first that the cultured gentleman who was helping me very patiently happened to be the owner of the inn, Mr Sharma! He was all kindness in helping me. Thoroughly enjoyed the conversation in which he furnished me with very helpful information about New Delhi. He even allowed me to take a look a the women's dorm - very clean and well-organised. Absolutely recommend this wonderful warm place to any budget traveller to New Delhi!!!!
Value for your money”
Overall my stay at the Smyle Inn was great. Particurly as i had a shaky start on arrival in Delhi with people at a "Tourist Information Centre" trying to scam me and once the hotel staff found out they went out of their way to make sure my stay was a very comfortable one. The location was particularly great if you like the hussle and bussle of the Main Bazaar life and at night it came alive, I loved it.
A most satisfying stay”
I had a pleasant stay at Smyle Inn. The staff were accommodating and they even arranged a private tour around New Delhi for only 1500 rupees. The location is right smack in the middle of the Main Bazaar. Good place if you're on a budget.
Dear Guest Greetings from Smyle Inn! Thank you for your positive feedback. We are happy to note that you had a pleasant and comfortable stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back. Regards Harish
this is my second time staying at Smyle Inn, as usual very friendly service, complete facilities according to price, and a very strategic location. The conditions inside the hotel are very good, but for the conditions around the hotel in the Paharganj area, I prefer to visit this area during the winter
hotel is located in main bazaar. u can find lot of items in cheap price here. located in a very busiest street but after enter in to the hotel u cant say it. it is a quite place. rooms were really well maintained. we booked 3 family rooms. (AC rooms, Attached bathrooms with hot water). to arrive here use RK Ashram marg metro station not new delhi station. because if this is ur first visit to here u will find bit difficult to come here coz u have to pass several crossing. but from RK ashram marg it has a direct path to come here. also distance is short than new delhi. dont hesitate to book this hotel. if u a budget traveler this is the best place for you.
Value for money”
I stayed just for 1 night but I would have chosen Smyle Inn if I stayed longer in Delhi. The hotel manager was very helpful to all guests. Just walking distance from train stations and some good shopping spots. Was allowed to use wifi and other facilities even 8 hrs after checkout. Highly recommended for backpackers/solo travellers.
Tips for staying in Smyle inn”
Our family with two kids stayed in smyle inn under three bookings. Pros 1)Smyle inn is very close to New Delhi railway station(about 500m) and Metro station RK Ashram Marg(About 700m).So it is easy to move around wihout taking many taxis. 2)Breakfast is good 3)Owner replies to email and resolve problems instantly. Cons 1)I negotiated airport pickup weeks beforehand and reminded them also 1 day prior.However the driver at the Airport did not turn up.Then i was waiting about half and hour searching for driver then finally called hotel .Then what they said was they cannot send a taxi now.Hotel asked to get a private taxi and come.Imagine you arrange everything to the last detail and things go wrong in the last minute.I faced a terrible time with my small kids(1 infant) because i didn't expect any of that. 2)Reception should be more welcoming. 3)When changing rooms we had to nag reception to bring this and that.Sometimes towels were not in the room. 4)Hot water interruptions.
Dear Guest Thank you for taking out time to give such a detailed review. We do agree that there was a problem with the airport pickup. We had apologised and compensated in many other ways. Everybody went out other way to make your stay comfortable and also helped with your onward journey. But we realise that sometimes there is no way you can please some people. We wish you all best. Regards Harish
Smyle inn is just off the main thoroughfare with all its traffic , pollution and traffic. So very little noise to disturb us. No roof top restaurant unfortunately, but easy to find local eateries. Staff are helpful particularly Ali and Mohan. Taxi to airport is not limousine but is cheap.
Manager was super helpful. General staff didnot come across quite as hospitable at first. There are two Smyle Inn next to each other, so checkin was slightly confusing. Overall great stay for India.
Great location, clean, spacious room. Good WiFi.”
Very pleasantly surprised with the clean spacious room. Towels and top sheet not initially provided but when we asked for them they were brought immediately. Great location approx 3 minutes walk from New Delhi railway station. Breakfast is included..served from 8am..however we had an early train so they gave us a breakfast to take with us. Not delicious..but functional! Only negative is that as check out time is not till midday..you can not check in till around at least 1pm. Luckily there is a cute little chai stall opposite which is perfect for waiting. Very helpful staff. Felt safe and clean.Would stay again.
"Value for money"”
"Value for money" Very decent and clean rooms...very good staffs, Worth in booking...fully satisfied. Thank you Smyle Inn.
Good enough for Pahar Ganj”
Budget hotel at the Main Bazaar. To the road wich goes to hotel will be a public toilet. Room was very small and not very clean, but it's ok for Pahar Ganj, just to stay 1 night. AC very old, but still working.
I know the location is in main bazaar which close to New Delhi Station (NDLS), but the hotel exact location is need to go to small alley. We don't mind, either. Mr. Alam is nice one, I was booking for 2 person (me and my friend) but there was an additional person (my boyfriend) and I messaged the hotel, that they will charge additional for 1 person. I didn't mind with that. But at the end, he gave it for free. Thanks for your great hospitality!
The staff went out of their way to help us when we needed! Even helped us book train tickets. I recommend if you’re looking for something simple, clean and close to the action. Breakfast was very simple and nothing fancy but definitely does the job if you’re not picky and are happy with a free meal 🙏🏼 Thank you Smyle inn
Nice location, friendly staff, good value for money”
I like the staff there, they are friendly and helpful. The place is also strategic, near market and walking distance to New Delhi railway station. However, I can spot some mold on wall in my room and the bathroom carpet is like the one supposedly used for car, they should change it to proper carpet because it cant absorb water Nevertheless, its good value for money considering that room is cheap, strategic place, nice staff
Always Smyle Inn”
I have stayed at Smyle inn a few times now ..great staff helpful and nice rooms with Wi fi
Good hotel for the money”
We arrived in Delhi and took the hotel's airport transfer which was well worth the money. Driver was waiting with our name on sign as we left baggage claim. He had a password they'd emailed us, so we knew to go with him. We were given bottled waters, toilet paper and shown to our room. The room was small but the bed was huge. The washroom was nice with a good shower, however the toilet leaked by day 3.. and not the type of leak you'd prefer. Breakfast was enjoyable and there was always hot water for tea and coffee available between 8:00-10:30am We used the hotel's arranged car service, which made for an enjoyable first touristy day in New Delhi, albeit a bit overpriced. We also had them book our train travel to the next city with a very small commission added, so well worth it. It was likely miscommunication, but he booked our trains a day too late, so we had to add an extra day on to our stay, which was done without issue. They offered money exchange which was nice. Overall, a good budget choice .. area may make you nervous on your first day, but by day two you'll be happy where you are located and enjoying the great chai and convenience shop around the corner.
I recommend Smyle Inn”
I only stayed for one night when I had to transit in Delhi before flying back to my country. The location is perfect, just 10 mins walking from NDLS (New Delhi Railway Station) and about 30 mins walk to Connaught Place. The room is a little small but clean, staffs are helpful, excellent value for money!
Dear Guest Thank you for your positive feedback. We are really happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and you were happy with our amenities, staff and location. We look forward to welcoming you again at Smyle Inn! Regards Harish
