This is simply a wonderful place to stay. The hosts, Ananya and Hari, are extremely conscientious and caring people. They seem to have thought out all the details to make a rental feel like home. I felt so comfortable there; the bed was great, kitchen stocked nicely, a peaceful balcony for reading, nice living room, big rooftop withe excellent views across Mysore. The neighborhood in upscale Gokulam was a big plus, too. Within easy walking distance are all the famous Mysore yoga studios, and along with it the subsequent veg eateries, natural remedy shops, etc. I highly recommend it and look forward to returning myself ASAP!
Green lotus house is an ideal place for a peaceful getaway. The house is beautifully done with great care and attention to detail. The place is always kept very tidy.
The location is amazing overlooking a ground and trees . Everything is near by from shops to yoga schools and the city center is 15 mins away in a tuk tuk.
The highlight of this place are its hosts , warm , friendly and they make you feel at home.
Surely will try to come back for another peaceful trip soon.
Having travelled a lot, and having seen dusty unclean homestays, curt hosts, inaccurate pictures, it was an absolute delight to come to Green Lotus. The pictures were completely accurate, the place is beautiful, cheerful, bright and super clean. Plus, the way the hosts Hari and Ananya welcomed me and cared about my wellbeing, I instantly felt part of the family. (I almost felt this is better than home! ) Who doesn't want to be welcomed with a warm smile, a hot cup of tea, who doesn't like the sight of a well stocked kitchen with oil, spices, tea, coffee , sugar, rice noodles (With complete freedom to cook, if one desires) or for that matter the spotlessly clean house. The hosts live on another property so this space is all yours / other guests. They leave you to yourself and give you all the space plus are available whenever you need. And the beautifully decorated apartment is a pleasure to be in...stocked with travel magazines, yoga books, recommendations of restaurants and massage places. One runs out of superlatives about the care taken by the hosts. I felt pampered! And this is precisely the reason why this should be THE choice while looking for an accommodation in Mysuru. I Will surely be back. It will be the warmth, the care and the unrivalled hospitality which will call me back to Green Lotus Mysore again.
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Green Lotus. As our first stop in India, this was the warmest welcome we could have received. The hosts Hari and Ananya were lovely and it was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. They gave us many great recommendations for tourist sites, shopping, cobblers, and going out. The room was spotless and all facilities were fantastic. Coming home in the evening to the rooftop was great. Travelling as two young women, we felt so safe and trusting here. Can't wait to recommend it to our friends - and come back ourselves. It feels like a true home away from home !
I stayed only a few days, but I would have definitely not mind to stay longer. After a very warm welcome and an amazing indian breakfast Ananya tried her best to understand my needs and plans for the next days to make sure to recommend the best places. She helps out with an indian sim card to make communication as easy possible.
The house and room is quite and very clean. The rooftop terrace provides an amazing view and is a perfect place to watch the sunset.
I can highly recommend to stay at Green Lotus! Thank you Ananya!
We had great time at Green Lotus. The hosts do their utmost best to make this home, your home, while the roof top terrace became our sunset oasis. Meeting other travellers that all seemed to share the same travelling ideology, be it single travellers or couples this became a wonderful stop in the south of India.The location is supremely convenient for absolutely everything!
Drop in Yoga classes, massages, cafes ; shopping..all were within 2 -10 minutes walk. They help you with sim cards and anything you may need. They also recommend a great rickshaw driver who is an excellent person to take you around town. You call, he is there and he waits for you in town if that is what you want. A very reasonable and honest man. Once again, if this is what you are looking for THIS is the place to book! Thanks Hari and Ananya !
Having already stayed here previously, I booked at Green Lotus without a second thought.
I could not have picked better. Hari arranged a car to meet me at the airport and ferry me the 4 hours to Mysore. Nothing was too much trouble and my hosts helped arrange trips, get reliable rickshaws, and everything from sight seeing, to cafes, to coffee plantation trips.
As before, the house is spotlessly clean and welcoming. My room was lovely and comfortable, the wifi worked great and the welcome breakfast was a wonderful surprise!
Special mention should go to Ananya's talents in the kitchen, as well as being a very welcoming host, she is a gifted cook bringing me and the other guests delicious brownies and smoothies every so often. I also met other guests at Green Lotus who became instant friends and we now share many warm memories of Green Lotus. All in all, a super thumbs up!
