We were two couples and two children, visiting relatives in Mysore. While in Canada we booked the Urban Oasis apartments after visiting their website. When we reached the place we realized that the photographic description in their website did not tell the whole story. We rented two separate two-bedroom suites with kitchenette and living room. They were clean and had basic amenities. The crew were quite helpful, courteous, and pleasant. However, the front desk was not managed by any professional, the desk help was intermittent and mostly not well informed. The telephone connection was very poor and the TV in the suites never worked. The breakfast buffet was badly organized, skimpy and limited to toast, coffee and some fruits. There is no parking for the vehicles. Only parking on the crowded street. There is no restaurant service in the hotel. Apart from the breakfast, you will have to go out of the hotel for food. There are, however, good restaurants in the vicinity. It is in a good location in terms of shopping, restaurants, and general shopping. It is relatively quiet.
The tariff for the suites was more expensive than the ones we paid in Bangalore at the Orchard Suites.
I hesitate to recommend this place. Mysore is replete with good hotels and I believe, one can negotiate a good tariff for long term rental. Th serviced apartment scenario is slowly catching in Mysore but not there yet.
