There are many hotels to choose from in Paharganj, but this one is reliable - clean, friendly, has wifi, hot water, and is not very expensive. The staff is also helpful. Of course there are better places to stay in Delhi than Paharganj, but if you insist, this is the one. Recommended!

Front desk staff were very pleasant and helpfull, the included breakfast was very basic. The staff in the restuarant/breakfast room are totally rude.This was reported to management but it was a waste of time. Hotel is situated in a narrow laneway off the main bazzar area very close to central station. Overall it was value for money, clean, convenient location. You get what you pay for.

Hello ! we stayed 4 days with smyle inn. Very neat accommodation and very responsive staffs too. The owners are hearing our suggestions as well too. A nice stay for us. Thanks a lot. Dont look the area of the hotel location. Since it is in very busy area pls leave that and look the hotel maintenance.

Good facilities like breakfast, wifi , heater available in an inn which is close to CP with decent staff and guests.
The rooms are a little small but the place is welll equipped and properly managed. If they implement feedback regularly you have little reason to stay in costly hotels

Definitely the most comfortable and friendly place in all of Delhi.
Anil and Harish will make sure you have the easiest stay with advice of cool places to visit and even party. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the ground floor - tourists in the street will keep you up all night.

From the location inside the alley in the center crowded Main Bazar, crowd area and a bit scary environment for hostels. The positive one, smyley is very close with New Delhi Central Station but when i first time landing in Delhi the driver did not find me in the place we have agreed before then it was one hour to seek each other in airport. When i stay in the first night i book for air conditioned room but the aircon did not work! very hot and humid. Then i ask them to repair the aircon and still didn't work and finally i was moved to another room with working aircon (fiuhh..). they have delish breakfast, i like it.

Harish (the owner) is very nice and warm guy but the manager (someone with mustache) behaves rude moreover if i asked much about my travel to Agra they did not response politely.
anyway i do not too recommend this hostel to stay.

Room Tip: Choose the room in the upstairs as basement is very crowded!

SmyleInn, Owner at Smyle Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 27 February 2014

Dear Guest
At outset I would like to thank you for writing a review after 8 months of staying with us. This shows that at least you remembered us. From your review I understand that you had an issue with the Aircon which got resolved, you liked the breakfast, you liked the owner (me) for helping you out with things and other than one staff member's conduct with you, there was nothing wrong in particular. Irrespective of these facts, you rated us low and what I could not understand is that you would not recommend Smyle Inn. I must say that your assessement of Smyle Inn is incorrect and harsh especially after we did so much to make your stay a pleasant one. I am really not sure what were you expecting.
Anyways, thanks for stopping by and reviewing us, even it happened after 8 months.
Regards
Harish

though the 1-min alley to the hotel is a bit doggy, the hotel room is clean and spacious. gd location which is in the mid of railway and tube station.
if price is the main concern, the hotel is good value.
the boss is v friendly and some of the staffs (not all) r helpful.
