Not luxurious so much as atmospheric, this heritage property is a great choice for its central location, efficient but friendly service and excellent food. I was upgraded to the Maharajah's Suite - actually a very large room with a large entrance lobby containing a magnificent huge mirror - but it was a disappointment that the water never ran really hot....

Checked in without booking on 13th may, with my family. The front office was very helpful. No Fuss about the availability. They offered me a very convenient room with good discount. Overall, had a good experience. Food was good. The location is convenient.

An excellent choice in Mysore, well located but starting to need some updating in rooms but overall a lovely hotel. Food is very good and Restaraunt staff make your meal times a pleasure. Pool is an added advantage as it is hardly used.

This was an excellent choice - a beautiful heritage hotel (an ex-palace) with a very pleasant staff and a lively dining atmosphere in the central candle-lit courtyard. The rooms have antique furniture and a great ambiance. There's a pleasant medium-sized swimming pool in the garden. The food was excellent too and reasonably priced - fish tikka INR350, chicken tikka 250,... More

Its a heritage hotel. Rooms are clean and nicely maintained. The property is well maintained. The dinner and food was good with decent choices available. However the service was slow. Further, I had to call house keeping in the morning to get some essential toileteries; not what you expect in such a hotel. Overall a decent place with some improvements... More

I have been to Mysore Metropole multiple times and having stayed here so many time, I can safely say that hotel's cost is far exceeding its actual value. To give an example a normal stay in hotel with food would have cost 15-20k for 2 days last year. This year it has gone to 25k, which exceeds its real value.... More

Rather tired, colonial style. Room in need of renovation, especially bathroom, with broken sink. Only a surgical trolley and no shelves. Bath needed replacing as surface badly soiled. Whole place understaffed, especially reception. Poor girl on desk was overworked, trying to do everything when we checked in. Breakfast rather picked over and ran out of too many things, yoghurt, coffee... More

I was working in Hyderabad and needed to be in Mysore for a couple of days work, and after spending plenty of nights in the Trident, The Westin and the Radisson in Hyderabad over a number of months decided to stay somewhere a little different in Mysore. Found the Metropole online and decided to go for it due to its... More

Had read a lot about the Metropole and decided to give it a try on a trip to Mysore. The property has been painstakingly maintained. Well appointed rooms, with period furniture and a lot of greenery around make this a good place to spend time. Most rooms have a sit-out / balcony overlooking the garden and it is a lovely... More

Having stayed at this hotel recently I can not praise it enough. The accomodation was excellent and the staff were up to the same standard. The restaurant was very slick and the prices most acceptable certainly far less than you would have expected. This is a city centre hotel but very quite and peacefull, I certainly hope to return
