Charming homestay at a quiet residential suburb of Mysuru, with easy access to the city centre. Excellent home-cooked food and very comfortable.

I returned to Rooftop Retreat after a gap of 7 years but although the location has seen a few changes the friendly welcome, the excellent food and service have not. The flat is extremely clean, well maintained, and had everything I needed. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Mysore.

Returned to Rooftop after 4 years. There have been some infilling in the road but it is still a delightful place to stay. The Keralan food is wonderful. If you don't have the chance to visit Kerala you can at least experience the cusine. Rooms are clean, confortable and allow a view of life in suburban Mysore.
