    Property description
    Guest Room – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Tired of the tourist trail? Looking for something different? Tucked away above the Damodaran family's modest home, this spacious, clean and comfortable apartment is a convenient base from which to explore Mysore city, as well as being an ideal place to relax at the end of a hard day's sightseeing. The dining room doubles as a place to write your diary or postcards, and the sitting room contains a small library, board games, and a TV tuned to many English language channels. From the window you can watch everyday life unfold in the street below, and from the roof terrace you can look out toward Chamundi hill and the town. Mrs Damodaran and her daughters prepare Indian or western breakfasts, teatime specialities and tasty Indian dinners on request, which you can enjoy in the flat or... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 7 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Wonderful food (especially after we asked for more spices)! The rooms were beautiful and very, very clean. The mosquito net was appreciated, though probably not needed. The Rooftop Retreat was very spacious, and was actually three rooms excluding a separate shower and toilet.
