Reviewed 21 August 2014

The place is nicely kept. The rooms are big and spacious. It is NOT a "true" home stay - where you get home cooked food - at least - that is my definition of "home stay". Having said that - it is a good place to stay with very friendly host. It is a bit outside the city center, but we had a car, so we didn't mind that. Overall a good place to stay in mysore.

Room Tip: They have dog(s), which bark at night, if you are a light sleeper, that might bother you. So pick th...

We had an excellent stay at Tulips recently. The homestay is located in a posh Mysore suburb, and is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The rooms (we stayed in AC rooms) are well furnished and very comfortable. The owner Mr. Kaveriappa and manager Mr. Moin were helpful, courteous and welcoming.
The paucity of good vegetarian restaurants within reasonable walking distance did not bother us this time as we were sightseeing and had access to a taxicab. Between Green Leaf Court and Highway 18 we preferred the latter, both for food and ambience. Both these restaurants are accessible by vehicle only. Breakfast is provided for by the management.

Room Tip: The rooms are spacious and airy with two fans so if you would like save more you could possibly go w...

Stayed at Tulip’s Homestay with family in May 2014.
The location of Tulip’s is some distance away from the main city centre in a primarily residential area. As such, the environs are peaceful and suitable for leisure walks in the morning or evening. Autos were available outside Tulip’s during our stay.
Rooms are good sized and clean. All fittings & accessories were functional.
The owner Mr Kaveriappa and manager Mr Moin are helpful while being non-intrusive at the same time.
Reasonably priced with no hidden costs, we rate Tulip’s Homestay to be very good value for money.

I stayed at Tulips with my family at Tulips from May 30 to June 2nd 2014. We found the place to be clean, comfortable and quite spacious. Mr. Kaveriappa (the owner) and Mr. Moin (the Manager) are very helpful and courteous at all times. We were provided with water and cold drinks which is priced nominally in the fridge. My son liked the place a lot as there was enough room for him to run and play. An induction stove with vessels are also provided on request at a very minimal charge. We were quite comfortable as all the basic amenities were made available. There is also an auto stand right outside the entrance to Tulips. It is located in a residential area and is away from noise and dust. Mr. Moin also helped in arranging car / auto for sight seeing.

I would recommend this home stay for families traveling to Mysore. Ensure you book in advance and speak to them prior to your arrival there.

Our thanks to Mr. Kaveriappa & famiy and Mr. Moin for making our trip worthwhile.

Regards,

Praveen.

Great mid-range accommodation, which feels more like a bed & breakfast than a traditional homestay. We stayed in a deluxe suite, which includes a spacious living area (TV and small dining area), kitchenette (cooking is not allowed without prior permission) and fridge/minibar, stocked with mineral water and soft drinks at reasonable prices. The room had fans as well as aircon and, along with the bathroom, was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was good (and we were offered a choice of alternatives) and a well-priced laundry service is available. In addition, both the owner and manager were friendly and helpful, in particular assisting with an early check-in following an overnight train trip.

The only issue we experienced was that the WiFi was down over the two days we were there, which proved a bit of an inconvenience. (It may be worth double-checking that it works if you think you'll need an internet connection.)

It is also important to bear in mind that Tulips is located 10-15kms out of the city centre itself. While it is therefore quieter, it does entail a rickshaw ride into the city to access all major sites. (Rickshaws are readily available outside Tulips and cost us between 100 and 150 rupees per trip to the city centre.)

A clean, calm and comfortable stay that offers good value for money.

We were a group of 8 Adults on our way back from ooty to Pune and chanced upon Tulips Homestay. we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms and the basic facilities provided there. Breakfast was included in the cost and sumptuous. away from the hustle & bustle of the city it is a prefect place to put up. Staff was courteous too. I would strongly recommend Tulips at Mysore.

Stayed with my wife and 2 young kids. Earlier reviews mention the homestay is located in a basement, so I was expecting low light and ventillation. But, this is not the case. My room (no. 3) had large windows, letting in plenty of light. Just think of it as a room slightly below road level.
There's a small but beautiful garden outside the windows, with beautiful potted plants.
Tulips is located away from the city bustle, making for a quiet vacation.

The staff is friendly (but not intrusive). Breakfast served was sumptuous. But, you'll have to go out to one of the nearby restaurants for lunch or dinner, or order food from outside.

The room (no. 3) was huge, maybe 400 square feet, tastefully decorated, with all necessary furniture you'd find in your own home. A/C worked fine. There's a dining table too, with plenty of chairs.

Couple of things to keep in mind -
1. There's no full-fledged kitchen. But, you can order food from a takeaway. We asked for 'Lobo's Takeaway'. Very prompt, tasty, and reasonably priced. Any day better than waiting in a restaurant with two sleepy kids.
2. Not centrally located, but there's an auto stand nearby. Certainly not an issue, if you have a vehicle.

I think Tulips offers good value for money. Would definately recommend it for a couple, or a family with kids.
