The hotel is in a heritage building, with spacious rooms. Ours had its own spacious balcony which was quite cheerful in the morning with parakeets and other birds chirping. The food was quite good - excellent at many points. The service was excellent. Above all, the hotel is located conveniently inside the city - yet pretty much in a green... More

This heritage hotel was once used as the guest house of the foreign guests of the King of Mysore. So every corner of this hotel gives you that nostalgic feeling of an era long gone by. Being built by the King, the hotel is built up area is huge though very less number of rooms so you can imagine space... More

This heritage hotel was a lovely treat for our two days in Mysore. This former palace for British guests of the Maharajah makes for an elegant stay. The rooms are quite spacious -some of them almost ridiculously so (I mean that in a good way). The bathrooms are nicely modern and well stocked. The location seemed quite good. We were... More

Transferred to the Royal Orchid from hotel close to palace to escape the touts and noise (grounds are walled off with guard out front. Loads of folks with young kids here as well as couples. Great lunch buffet and room service menu is from the restaurant that is also located in hotel and was fantastic.

This is one those places which are a perfect mix of contemporary and traditional feeling. Awesome rooms, great food and friendly staff makes it one of my favorites in Mysore. Highly recommended for those going to Mysore. It's worth every penny!

The Metropole has a very fine line to tread. ‘Heritage’ hotels are ten a penny these days in India, it seems every ex-Maharajah’s palace has been got at by the hotel companies, with various different degrees of success. Some are horribly overdone, and end up as ridiculous, overfussy pastiches of their former selves, others are barely touched, and become bland,... More

A charming historic boutique hotel with a garden and lawn, shutters, wide open verandahs, historic portraits and original antique furniture. Rooms range from spacious to vast with lofty ceilings and attractive decor. I found the restaurant to be exceptional and staff were welcoming... More
