Reviewed 18 December 2013

I would describe our experience staying at this large business style hotel as disappointing, particularly given the positive reviews it had received on TripAdvisor and elsewhere. Our good-sized room had a double bed, minibar, TV and ensuite. The furnishings were tired, as was the linen and towels. The bathroom was cramped and dated.

The food at the two restaurants was good, however, the dim lighting and dark jungle-themed rooms made it near impossible to read the menu, detracting from the experience. While the service throughout the hotel was fine, better attention should be paid to improving the breakfast presentation which included cold food and cold tea and coffee. The nearby, small rooftop pool was also not too inviting.

Overall, we were disappointed with our two night stay and found this hotel our most disappointing in India, and not value for money.

Stayed at the Pai Vista on 7th December, while on a whirlwind trip to Mysore from Bangalore. After experiencing the traffic of Bangalore Pai Vista's location and easy access to attractions like Mysore Palace was appreciated. It was nice to be able to get back easily & relax after a hectic day. Ate at both restaurants & the food was good in both. Service was generally good & rooms clean & tidy. Cold Kingfisher on tap at the bar was a good way to wind down at the end of the day.

Good in all the matters.
We arrived at hotel at 9 AM but they told that checkout time was 12 noon and they made us to wait for almost 2 hrs to checkin the room.
I have clearly told to travel agent that I will be arriving hotel by 9AM. Not sure where was the communication gap. Except that its good option to have a comfortable stay here.

We stayed from the 22nd Nov - 24th Nov, 2013. The interconnected Comfort rooms(201/202)...were quite dirty infact, one washroom smelt of urine....terrible...I was shocked. Probably the fact that we had stayed in JP Palace Mysore set our standards a tad higher....obviously but, this is just basic...not asking for too much here! The check-in/out was smooth, no glitches! The Food in the restaurants.....both, jungle and Guffa was quite nice.... The complimentary breakfast was good. Didn't use the SpA/Gym. The Wifi was strong.

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 210/202; it was far too noisy. They then shifted us to Suite rooms (210/212) whic...

Pai Vista is one of the best hotels at Mysore. The rates are a bit high for a place like Mysore but the services offered are very good. One problem was they overcharging for the basket goodies kept in the room. Two bags of chips, two biscuit packets, a small cashew packet and a sprite can cost us 400 bucks...Honestly after charging us for a luxury room, its a minimum that they should offer these small freebies at nominal rates. The swimming pool was another dampener...as it rained the whole night, being not covered on the terrace, the pool was chilling cold in the morning at 8am. My kid wanted to swim but was disappointed. Food is good with lot of variety. Cutlery can improve, though.

Room Tip: Go for the Luxury rooms at the corner facing the car parking lot. It helps to not disturb the adjace...
