May not be a good idea to stay in Bangalore for 6 nights unless food and shopping are your main interests.

Melange is conveniently located for the main attractions in South Bangalore.However traffic in Banglore is horrific

There is now a flybus from Bangalore airport to Mysore leaving at 9.45pm and it will reach Mysore in 3.5 hours. You could choose to stay at Pai Vista across the suburban bus stand.The cost for the flybus is Rs1000 per head. A taxi would cost about Rs 3000.

Mysore is much less frenetic and has many places within easy reach of tourist interest. You could consider spending your last night in Bangalore before your flight next day. The Shatabdi train which leaves Mysore at 2 pm reaches Bangalore by 4 pm would be convenient or the Tippu Express which leaves Mysore at 11 am. You also have the option of going straight to the airport from Mysore at 2pm reaching Bangalore Airport at 6pm.

Mysore has more things to see or more interesting things to see than Bangalore 3+3 should be fine. Lavelle road is an excellent location in Bangalore, Since Bangalore's sightseeing has spread across the city it would not make any difference, but from a central location point of view Lavelle road is excellent . 2 full days in Mysore might be enough but 3 with 3 days it can be more relaxed. As the member has posted above, 1st night in Bangalore, leave to Mysore the next day and come back and exit out through Bangalore.

(If you plan on travelling by road to Mysore I suggest u get an early start to avoid the traffic)

If your flight arrives at 6 pm, it will be 7 pm by the time you exit the airport. I do not recommend driving at night to Mysore. I suggest the following plan for 6 days:

Day 1 - Arrive 6 pm, transfer to hotel in Bangalore. Shower and relax. Overnight Bangalore

Day 2 - Lesiurely breakfast, sightseeing in Bangalore. Overnight Bangalore

Day 3 - From Bangalore, drive 4hrs to Hassan. On the way visit Sravanabelagola. There is a nice place called Hoysala Village Resort. Check in there and relax in the afternoon.

Day 4 - Morning visit Belur and Halebid temples. After lunch, check out and drive to Mysore about 3.5hrs

Day 5 - Mysore sightseeing

Day 6 - Drive 4hrs to Bangalore, visiting the historic city of Srirangapatana on the way. Go straight to the airport
