“Expectations Were Just Not Meet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2011

Hotel design is awesome but that is as far as anything positive goes. The reception staff are not friendly and should rather get a tip from the Bell Boy. We only had breakfast and it had to be the worst. Bread was stale, coffee was terrible, cereals were in large bowls, not very hygenic!

The hotel is not very central to anything so once you there, entertain yourself!

Very Clean and good for the Price. The food was good as well. But mostly we ate outside as we were site seeing on our limited stay in Mysore. I would stay here on my next trip, just need to make sure to reserve more that a few days in Mysore. What a great city!

the fern residency offers western comfort at very reasonable price, if you don`t specifically look for a colonial style palace hotel (what is availble in Mysore either but at much higher price) then you should choose this one,
people are very nice and helpful, nice roof top swimming pool, rooms well equiped, bed is western comfortable (= medium soft and not the usual indian hard way !),
2 km distance to modern shopping area, ~ 7 km to city center with all the traditional buildings and sgopping,
to visit for sure Maharadschas and other palaces, Chamundi hill, .. .
to buy silk and pashmina, sandalwood, .. .

1. Good Service by the reception people
2. Excellent room service
3. Far from the city and tourist spots hence need to pay for the taxis and Auto's
4. Idle place for Couples
5. In Total its good but the room tariff is on higher side.

If you are planning to stay in Mysore for a night with most of your day planned for sight-seeing, this is the place to be. What you need at the end of the day, is a comfortable bed to go crash. The room & the shower were great, really clean and fresh. Its located in a quiet neighborhood, from which most of the points are easily accessible. The food & service was average. I would certainly stay here again.

We stayed in Mysore on a weekend trip from Bangalore. The hotel was a bit hard for the driver to find - but worth the searching! It is just ok from outside, but awesome room. The bed was soft and comforatble (unlike all others we have found in India). The view was of the back of the hospital, but we jsut wanted to sleep. Room service was fast and the french fries were awesome! Breakfast on the other hand was not so great - it was just OK and they do make eggs to oder. Would 100% stay there again. Can't beat the price when visiting the palace!
