Good choice but not the best value

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 6, 2007

We were talked into taking the most expensive suite at this hotel. It cost around 2200.- Rs. and was worth its price in spite of the fact that we did not need a suite, a simple A/C double room would have done as well. The suite was located on the uppermost floor (4th) and consisted of a well-furnished reception room, a comfortable bedroom (with efficient A/C, large TV with a lot of channels but no fridge.) Room service was available. The room and bathroom (with flush toilet and shower) was immaculately clean. The hotel itself is located right in the center of the city, a walking distance from the maharaja's palace. There is a roof terrace from where you can see the illuminated palace in the evening. (Palace is illuminated only on the weekends from 7-8 in the evening)

The 2 ladies in the reception were kind. The hotel had a good restaurant (lots of local families came in for dinner) where Kingfisher beer (properly cold) was readily available for the usual hotel price. (Rs. 100.- for a large bottle).

Unique Quality: The hotel has an altar dedicated to the elephant-headed Hindu god of Ganesh. Every Friday a pujari (priest) comes to the hotel to give blessings. The pujari blesses the restaurant staff as well. If you happen to be at the restaurant and feel that you could do with a blessing as well, it is possible to ask the priest to come over your table and bless you for some change. (10 or 20.- Rs)

The Viceroy Mysore

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

I stayed in this hotel for one night, it was an average hotel with poor hospitality.
People at reception seems to be newly hired so they were not very good at service.

People at Viceroy were very mechanical and were poor in attitude.

Room was good, but I was disappointed to see that you actually can't see the great Mysore palace from this hotel as they advertise. Before booking this hotel I searched on internet for hotels in Mysore, the Viceroy was advertised saying its right opposite to Mysore palace and have a great view of palace from its special rooms. I called them and booked best possible room of their hotel. Reaching there it was disappointing as I was not able to see even gate of Mysore palace. Its true that this hotel is right opposite to Mysore palace but it does not view the palace due to construction and other things in between palace and hotel. I guess you may see the palace from roof top of this hotel, I never tried it.

Overall the accommodation was OK, it was not great but you can live with it because primary tourism locations were close enough to this Hotel.

Unique Quality: Located near by tourism attractions.

Another higher scale (although not luxury) hotel on our route in the south. The Viceroy is perfectedly situated between the Maharajah's Palace and Devaraja Market.

Very comfortable and clean. . .

There are also a couple of good restaurants nearby ~ Shilpashi? is one I noted in my journal at the time. . .
