Royal Orchid Metropole is one of the finest places to stay in Mysore. A heritage hotel that has been done up very tastefully. The location is perfect. The area that the hotel occupies is vast enough and spacious. The rooms are a revelation- the rooms we stayed in had balconies which was like an extra room. The food and the... More

We stayed at the Metropole for only 2 nights, I wish it could have been more. The hotel is a great heritage hotel refurnished in a colonial style to a great standard. Staff where all very polite and the resturant though lacking in character served great food and considering the quality of the hotel well priced. I would definitely suggest... More

Stunning hotel that will make you feel like royalty. The location is amazing and easy walking distance to local stores and restaurants. The regular rooms are really nice but the suites are unreal. Staff was great and the restaurant was tasty. Laundry service was also quick and relatively affordable. No free wifi in the hotel (possibly no wifi at all...).... More

This is one of the hotels that wants to give the look and feel of ‘royal,’ and almost makes it. It has rooms with high ceilings, lots of lamps everywhere (that are easy to switch on via switches on their stands, or on the wire close to the stand rather than having to bend, trace its wire down to an...

We stayed for two nights (in June) for visiting Mysore. A charming property, well located and well kept. Food was good too. The minor blip was caused by the reluctance of the staff to serve meals in the courtyard for inexplicable reasons. It is right there next to the covered space they serve and it is the charm of the...

The architecture fits the city of Mysore. A good hotel in the middle of the city. Easy access to all the attractions in Mysore. The railway station is very close. So close that you can hear the train sirens inside the property though not troubling. The rooms are clean. Service is great. Staff is courteous. Food is really nice and... More
