We were quite happy about Smyle inn. Pahar Ganj as an area might not be for everyone because it is full of touts and tourists but its central location means getting around is easy. Connaugh place is just a short walk away and metro and train stations are nearby. Our room was nice and clean and service was OK. Some... More
