“Charming Old Hotel”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

When we pulled up to this hotel, we were instantly charmed by the 1940s character of the place. The place is definitely a bit dilapidated, but the overall charm and character are very present. The rooms are very affordable, and the location is perfect. We enjoyed our breakfasts at the restaurant where the very polite elderly wait staff wear uniforms, including hats. Our waiter brought us a sampler plate of all the local porridge and kitcheree options so we could know what to order. The neighborhood around the hotel is fascinating to explore, and the palace is nearby. Glad we stayed!

We checked into the hotel and were feeling it was just an OK place, bit old and unmaintained, but in a good location in town.
Woke up in the early morning to find bed bugs crawling all over us. Had a look around and found smaller bed bugs all along the skirting board. Got up and checked out. Manager on duty showed no surprise at all, just "we'll have to fumigate the room then" - it's clearly a regular thing there, he said we "should have told them sooner so they could give us a different room".
No refund
No apology
Barely even an acknowledgment that bed bugs are something undesirable
Spent the new day cleaning all our stuff and having all our clothes laundered - not a cheap or fun experience - avoid

Dasprakash hotel in Mysore is an average hotel, at decent price. Food is very good. We were told there is another Dasprakash hotel which is bit premium and good. A boy assisted us taking our luggage to the room literally didnt leave us till we give him tip. Rooms are good. Food is very good. Overall experience is good. Can stay with families at budget rates.

Overall It is a Good Place.New Building,nice facilities,nice friendly staff and a good brand name built over years because of good service.I remember coming here with my dad couple of years ago.It was a old building.Now that they have got a good new building,neat and clean rooms.
Was here for a short stay and walked out happy.So all in all a very good place for reasonable price tag... :)

nice and very good value for your money. Paid 375 for a room and it even comes with a newspaper every morning. Hot water is a bit a matter of day to day chance as it is in the rest of India. Also its very close to the city center with walking distance to most sights.

Room Tip: ask to see a few rooms with different prices to compare, price differs more then the room

We had a pleasant stay at Dasprakash for three days and that too in Dasara time( you have to book well in advance though). This is in center of the city easy access to market , palace and for shopping. This is not very hi-tech hotel they have all basic needs. We all go to Mysore for side seeing we hardly spend much time in room. Room service is good too. In food i liked yogurt/curd rice served with fried chilies its yummy. Many famous eat-outs around this and near by areas. You will need good minimum one week to explore at least main places, temples, eat-outs in Mysore.

After reading the various reviews especially the ones bordering on some bad experiences faced by some of the travellers,i became a little skeptical about the Hotel and was wondering whether i should really be staying at this Hotel.But turned down by other Hotels as i had not booked well in advance i had no choice but to go to this Hotel.Reaching at about 4 in the evening i parked my car at the spacious parking lot and proceeded to the insipid Reception counter and waited for my turn to be attended to by the elderly looking male Receptionist.
Since i am not very comfortable in A/c Rooms being a serious heart patient, but perhaps gauging by the formals in which i was, the Receptionist suggested that i should take an A/c room which according to him was very comfortable.I had to then explain about the status of my health and my need for a copious amount of fresh air and warmth and finally giving in,rather apologetically,suggested that they had only one room left( for the three of us) and should we not mind, we could stay in the same after inspecting it.
Being escorted by a simple floor attendant,i reached the room.( which ultimately was heaven for three days)
Stepping- in,anger and disappointment built up in a jiffy.Do we have to stay in this rat-hole?
But, in a minute of introspection anger vanished .Perhaps here was a room which probably would have been a home to some great men of yore who would have drawn inspiration from the same.
The beautiful vintage furniture was very inviting, besides the cupboards made of teak.The only sign of modernity was the TV,which was reminding us of our today’s existence.
As I was coming out of the room ,the sun’s rays were entering thro the west facing door reminding me that he was there in all his glory to keep us warm.
Returning to the Reception Counter I unabashedly told the elderly Receptionist that we had got what we wanted and that we would stay for about four days.
Considering that it would be a slightly long stretch as per their standards ,i was told to pay an advance which i promptly did and we went to our room which was our home sweet home for the next three days.By the time we reached the room the linen had been changed and kept ready.
Settling down and freshening -up,we went to Akshaya Restaurant for our first bite in the city of Mysore.Although nothing to rave about,the South Indian Thali (plate meal) was decent and adequate and costed only Rs 70.
The following morning was one of preparing for the visits.After a bath in piping hot water and readiness, it was back to Akshaya for some very good break-fast and excellent coffee.
The next two days was a routine, sinking in and becoming nostalgic,
Sitting outside the room in the corridor in the evenings and watching the crowd and the activity around was something that we would always miss,maybe for ever.
The Hotel is very popular as evident from the rush of Travellers from around the globe for many of them Dasaprakash being a Youth Hostel sort of.
The Hotel has a Chat corner,fledgling though,an internet kiosk and a travel agency.
Wednesday was departure day.The checkout formality was very very simple.Unlike many other hotels there was/were no attendants breathing down the neck for tips.Their simplicity and affable manners automatically would make one, tip them.
At about Rs 4000 for three adults for three days ,it was a steal.
An unforgettable experience indeed.
Eager to be back again soon.
If the Hotel could be summed-up in one sentence it was like a beautiful marriage place buzzing with activity.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the west are better ones.
