Not the quietest place to stay in Mysore, situated behind a supermarket and gym, it is nevertheless, comfortable clean and in very easy walking distance to most of the major sites in Mysore. The staff are very good and they gave us lots of information and took trouble to find out what we wanted to do and then made suggestions. We were directed to Chaat Street, off the tourist trail, where you can buy all sorts of very good street food. We were in one of the modern top rooms the first night but there was a lot of noise from the street so moved down to one of the older bedrooms on the ground floor, with high ceilings and a large four poster bed. AC but not really needed as the fan was adequate and much quieter though the room opens out to the communal eating area. The owners are passionate about their history and we spent a pleasant hour looking at old Mysore in pictures on their computer. Tea and coffee are available all day but there is a small charge for this. For a low budget stay in the centre of town it was very good.

Room Tip: Upstairs for more light and modern shower room, downstairs quieter and more atmosphere.

In general we enjoyed our stay at Mauve Orchid and I would stay there again. It's a good place to stay, good value for money. (I would like to add that this place IS GOOD, NOT AVERAGE and NOT VERY GOOD, but there is no option for just "Good" rating on Trip Advisor).

It is in a good location, in a walking distance to the palace (20-30min), behind a good supermarket, which blocks a bit of noise from the street. For a central location the place is as quiet as it can be for India.

We had a room without AC, as it was upstairs with lots of space, very comfortable bed and it was very airy. We didn't need an AC room as it was still very comfortable to sleep at night with a fan only (but they do have AC rooms downstairs which are decorated with an Indian style, the ones upstairs, non AC, are more modern in style).

Our room was clean but the bathroom should be kept cleaner. Also the stairs up could be kept cleaner as it spoils the whole impression.

Breakfast was just ok, a bit of continental and Indian food. We were surprised that we weren't offered the option of having it on the "enclosed" terrace with a bit of air. Instead we had it in an "inside space" surrounded by other rooms which was very convenient for the staff to serve breakfast but maybe not for the guests to fully enjoy it.

The place has lot of potential but they need to work on it a bit.

Very good and friendly staff though!

We had an great time at this place. They helped us with planning and gave good advice. They also did all the necessary booking for us. Location is fantastic, a little back from the road so no real noise and within walking distance of the palace and other interesting areas.

Mauve Orchid is very nice and pleasant to tsay.Some interesting places are at walking distance. The staff is very friendly and the manager and owner are very helpfull and give you lots af good information and tips what to do and to see. The room is spacious and clean. The bathroom is clean but looks better if they would clean all the glass from the showercabin (lots of calcium). The breakfast is very good. We\would recomend this place when you wanna spend some time in Mysore..

nice place to be in. besides in the center of city, this place has its own silence to enjoy. nice staff and hospitality. just ensure that you have your food and then go there since this hotel does not have any restaurant.
