Good For Couples
In December 2006, I was booked into the Green Hotel after reading many favorable reviews.Because it was "high season" I had to prepay fully. I was given a tiny, filthy, stuffy back room in the "palace" that might be best described as a cockroach paradise. The desk staff was almost as rude as the dining room staff. The lights in the main lobby went out sometime before midnighgt and the street noise made sleep impossible. What to do? since I planned to be in Mysore for 3 days. Fortunately, I went on line and booked through Travelocity a room at the Metropole for about $90 USD. Although, the Metropole was a few blocks away, it was a world of difference.
The facilities at the Green Hotel were dreary. My driver, ever polite, broke his silence and commented negatively on quality of the hotel.
The hotel is located too far out from the central shopping and touristic areas for convenient walking and is on a major truck route!
Maybe there are better rooms, maybe the staff can be pleasant, but I would not recommend this place to anyone.
However at the Metropole, my room was a palace, with a bathroom that was about twice the size of the room at the Green Hotel. There was a private verandah. The furnishings were top-notch. The morning breakfast buffet was extensive and good. The main restaurant was ok for other meals. Although there was some street noise as my room faced a busy main street, heavy windows and curtains cut most of the sound. I slept well on the large comfortable bed. I am glad that I did not suffer through with my prepaid hotel. I enjoyed Mysore and the hotel was conveniently located for walking even if a little away from "hotel row" and the main touristic areas.
Unique Quality: Just plain awful. Dreary, dirty with surly staff.
Directions: away from the center
Such a romantic place
Green Hotel is a very eco-friendly hotel built within Chitteranjan Palace, once the home of Mysore's Maharajah's daughter. The palace has also ben used as a film studio in recent years.
We stayed in the palace rooms, which are nicer than those in the newer wings.
Unique Quality: Beautiful gardens, tastefull decrated rooms, public rooms with period furniture, well stocked library.
The hotel has a strong environmental policy which includes using local goods, emplying a large percentage of women and recycling. All the profits go to charities and environmental projects. They even keep mosquito eating fish in the pond!
Se General Tips below for the very unusual turnback service.
Stay in a Real Palace
You stay in a real Palace at extremely affordable price. Outstanding service, chosen by British Airways as one of the best places to stay.
Has a lot of antique furniture, fittings, paintings, pictures of the era gone by.
Amenities - no pool - you can live without one for sometime.
Unique Quality: You are treated like a king or queen literally, in the ambiance of how it would have been a 100 years ago with the modern fittings.
Food is great, breakfast if free.
