Green Hotel
Ranked #26 of 116 Hotels in Mysuru (Mysore)
Reviewed 31 December 2011

Hotel looks great from the outside. Inside it is in urgent need of renovation. A lot of potential but this is certainly not a boutique experience. We couldn't sleep for the traffic noise and dogs barking - no water in the rooms and the bathroom left much to be desired.

We drove from Bangalore to Mysore, a little bit hard to find the hotel because it is out of the way, not close to anything that a visitor wants to visit on foot but it doesn't matter to us, it definitely has it's old world charm, the building is white, with a bowling lawn next to it and also the outdoor restaurant, the older style grand rooms are all in the main white building. The reception staff is very helpful, gave us directions when were in the car, once we arrived, we were taken straight to the Princess's Room which is on the second floor and we walked past various nice living areas before reaching our room at the end. The room has 2 single beds, it has no views, though it has windows, it has got a big wardrobe and a huge bathroom, but there is no bath tub, they use sandalwood soaps and the room smells nice. The whole hotel is full of antique furniture, all nicely preserved, food is good at the restaurants, very good service, we ate all meals there. Since it is far away from the city centre, it is very relaxing after a long day out to Mysore town centre and the Palalce. All proceeds from the hotel go to charities and environmental projects in India which is a major reason we chose to stay there.

Room Tip: Princess's Room is good but no bath tub but there is another room with a bath tub but it is not...

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms (we stayed in one of the Garden rooms) were large and reasonably clean. The service was prompt and friendly. The hotel was very attractive and well maintained. The hotel were happy to meet our request for a late check out too.

We enjoyed some drinks and some food from the restaurant. Both drinks and food were reasonably priced, and served promptly. It was particularly pleasant to sit on the lawns - it felt very peaceful and relaxed, despite a quite busy road outside the hotel.

If I were going to be picky, I found the beds slightly hard and the linen / towels slightly scratchy. Also the lack of switches by the door made it difficult to switch the fan / lights off as you left the room. However, these were very minor irritations in a very pleasant stay.

Green Hotel

This is by far my favourite Hotel in Mysore. Run as a charitable enterprise, the hotel employs local staff from under privileged backgrounds, and all profits go to charity. However, if you are looking for fancy rooms, and uber luxury, give this place a miss. But if you want to enjoy peace and quiet, and your holiday is made more they people you meet, and the experiences you have, and not so much by the softness of you pillows, you won’t regret staying here.

Rooms; the rooms are basic but charming. There is no Ac in keeping with the hotel’s green policy, and it can get a little warm during the power cuts. The room are however extremely clean, and beautifully furnished. The bathrooms have showers powered with hot water which is solar heated and cute traditional steel buckets and mugs to bathe with if you are really keen on conserving water.

The food is a mix of standard north Indian, and indianized chinese, and nothing to really write home about if you are used to Indian food. However, please note that Im not in any way complaining about the quality –merely saying it isn’t exceptional. However, the food at the hotel coffee shop is outstanding, and the girls at counter will warm your heart. The coffee shop is a great palce to sit with a book, and enjoy some peace and quiet- as is the beautiful library.

The gardens are lovely, and my favourite part of the hotel. Beautifully maintained, the garen has won the best garden prize in mysore for several years in a row (and mysore is a city of great gardens)

The service is what really makes this place. While is isn’t the sort of professional 5 star service you get in the big fancy chain hotel, the staff are genuinely warm and friendly, and will go to great lengths. They may forget part of your room servce order, or lose a piece of laundry, but they will more than go out of their way to correct the mistake, set things right, and not rest till they know you are happy!

On the way to the Green Hotel in Mysore from Ooty, we soon realised that our driver had no idea about the hotel's location. He asked various people but this got us only onto the road where the hotel was supposed to be. Rickshaw and taxi drivers seemed mystified and unable to help. Luckily we happened upon it by accident. Hotel staff later told us that the hotel was previously known as Premier Studios - in a prevous life it had been a film studio until shut down by fire. We were told that this name was still known to taxi and rickshaw drivers!
Anyway what a great place. Formerly a palace then film studio now a fine hotel. The main old building has a small number of rooms each surrounded by furnished but unused "rooms of state". Another separate building has a larger number of rooms which appear to lack the charm of the older building. Ask for a palace room, it is worth it. We stayed in the Bollywood room with various pictures of old and more recent stars of the silver screen.
Fine dining sometimes (weather permitting) under the stars by candlelight. Very obliging staff and very good Indian food. Breakfast included (either Indian or Anglo). Travel desk is efficient and reliable driver available for day trips.

Room Tip: Ask for a palace room

Beautiful place with lovely gardens,very helpful staff and food but the room we had was tiny, by the time we put our two suitcases in there was hardly any space at all! Okay if you are staying for one night like we did.

Room Tip: It was the Bollywood room we had which was tiny - other rooms may have been okay but this was booked...
