I stayed at Shanthi Niwas for a couple of nights recently. Ganga was incredibly welcoming with tea and a snack. Since I'd arrived with a terrible headache, she was very kind to make me dinner so that I wouldn't have to go out to eat. She didn't even let me pay for it. Her morning masala dosas were fantastic too!... More

We had stayed at Shanti Niwas,Mysore for one night on May 25th,2015 with my husband and 6 year old kid. This is my honest review of the place which includes both the positives and the negatives. Host : Ganga was a very friendly person to move with. We didn't get to meet/interact with other members of the family(we thought it... More

08/01/2015 It is never easy to say bye to a family that has opened their hearts to you. Mrs Ganga Cariappa and Mr Cariappa were such a joy to meet and a real treat to be with. I was in their home for one night and I can only understand the feelings of all those who have reviewed them (... More

By the time I had reached Mysore, it was at the end of my trip to India. After spending a few days at the Shanti Niwas BnB, I did not want to leave. Ganga and Cari were one of the most delightful couple I met during my trip, and their children Gagan and Suniana were an absolute pleasure to talk... More

My stay at Shanthi Miwas was a warm welcome. Such a wonderful family! I could stay talking and drink chai all day. Tea, Coffee & Biscuits was frequently offered, and I found they are such a great source of information. The area is in Sadartha Layout and their home is very close to a great dosa and almond milk cafe,... More

Thanks to Ganga and Cariappa for quickly responding and arranging for the stay in spite of our short notice (approx 10 mins). We were looking for a place to stay in the night during our long drive from Mangalore to Coimbatore, immediately after the phone call they helped us with an accomodation which helped us in relaxing and taking some...

I stayed with Ganga and Cary for 4 days this March, having luckily come across their home stay via a traveller recommendation. They welcomed me into their family immediately and the chats and fun we had was actually the highlight of my stay in mysore (although its a beautiful city!). I was travelling alone and practising yoga and they couldn't... More

Our plan was to stay 2 days in Mysore during our cycling-trip but in the end we stayed 4 days because Ganga and Cary were very hospitable and they gave us a lot of tips about what to see in Mysore. In their house we met Stephen who organizes cycle-tours in and around Mysore, vey nice to do. And Cary... More

The best things about this house stay is the quite area and the very friendly and helpful family. We stayed there for 6 nights and Ganga organised personal yoga lessons each morning which for us was really the best way to be introduced to it. The breakfast was very nice, and in the room we had enough privacy. The only... More

Yours hosts being good cannot compensate for a poorly maintained property. We stayed there for 8 nights and honestly it took, quite a bit of getting used to. If it was not for a medical treatment which I was undergoing, somewhere in the vicinity, I would have probably checked out the first night. Actually there is quite a bit which... More
