These guys worked very hard to earn their TA rating of #1 hotel in Mysore, and will bend over backwards to stay #1, so you should take advantage of it!
By far the best room for Rs.800/night we've gotten in all of India. Rooms are immaculate, modern, and new - there was still protective film on our flat-screen TV. 24 hour hot water from the shower, not just a tap and bucket. Quiet fan, and we were offered a standing fan if it was still too hot for us (we were fine).
Their customer service is the most noteworthy, and unlike anything I've experienced in India. They offered to upgrade us to deluxe a/c for free for the first night, but we didnt want to switch rooms later so we settled on our regular room. They were willing to negotiate with the price. Anything we needed (like rubbish bin), we got. They were extremely helpful with logistics when we wanted to visit Namdroling Monastary in Bylakuppe/Coorg. Free left luggage with reception (there are anywhere from 1 to 5 workers there at any given moment). Offered us a room to freshen up in between us checking out and catching our overnight train (something I've never been offered before, but very gratefully accepted!). They were ready with chai for you in the morning if you were around reception, and bottles of water later in the day. Hell, on the last of our multi-night stay, they even gave us a fruit basket! (Which I particularly appreciated, as I had a head cold).
This hotel is by FAR the best value for our money we've gotten during 3 weeks of travelling south India. Free (and strong) wi-fi on every floor, satellite tv, on-demand hot water... all these things would cost a lot more anywhere else. The only detractors are location being far from food options and lack of restaurant, but they're working on it and offer a full room service menu... and also, if you can, ask for a room not facing the street, as the sign is very bright and curtains so-so, but it wasnt annoying us enough to try and change, though it might be annoying to others... These are minor points, and I'd still happily recommend this place to others, especially budget travellers - what a great find!
