“Very central and most helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Budget place which is most central in Mysore only 20-30 ruppees away in an autorickshaw to most places. The staff and the owner were incredibly freindly and helpful and even drew us a map of where to go to. The rooms are simple and clean. Breakfast generous and good, both the indian option and the continental one chosen by the children. Our children felt confortable and able to ask lots of questions to the staff. There is a supermarket next door which opens until late which was helpful.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I just stayed at the Mauve Orchid and enjoyed it very much. Roopesh and staff are friendly and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable.

The "heritage" room we stayed in had AC but it didn't work well at all. Roopesh kindly adjusted our bill and offered to move us to another room as well. The room wasn't super clean (floors mostly) but the bed was comfortable and linens were clean. We wished they had "real pillows" rather than the foam types so common in Indian hotels but considering the rates at the homestay I understand.

Hot water was fine all times of day an the room's 4-poster bed and interesting moldings made our stay feel more special than a generic hotel would have.

Roopesh also kindly told us all the good places to visit and eat at as well as fair prices for rickshaws. Since the homestay is well-located just off a busy street it was easy to get around and visit the Palace, zoo, and market.

We would definitely recommend this homestay (more a guesthouse really) if you're looking for great service, affordable comfort, and a decent location in Mysore.

It was nice having you both as our guest during your stay at mysore. we really had a very good time talking to you and sharing your travel knowledge . but we really felt very bad as our A/c unit broke during your stay and could not be fixed immediately. any ways we'll take utmost care about the cleanliness and hope to welcome you back again on your next visit to India. have a great time.

This place is right in the middle of the city. All the site seeing places are close by.
Excellent, friendly and very helpful staff.
Nice budget stay for family.
Choose a AC room, if you want to avoid the city noise.

Room Tip: Choose a AC room, if you want to avoid the city noise.

We were looking for a quiet place in noisy India and MauveOrchid definitely fulfilled our desire as it is located behind another building away from the street. One of the view times I slept without ear plugs! Location is perfect, just a 10 to 15 min walk from almost everywhere: palace, market, shops, bus terminal, ... We first stayed in one of the big heritage rooms with very big attached bathroom. Because of other bookings we were asked to move to a room in the newer part later. This room was smaller but with a more modern bathroom. Both rooms were very clean, beds were perfect. The best part was the staff: always very helpful and full of advice on Mysore and things to do and see. They even phoned for us to make further reservations and deposited money into the bank for pre-payments. We never experienced such a service before. Not to forget the excellent breakfast (if you like Indian style breakfasts). Everyday something different and always delicious. A small store is on the street just next to MauveOrchid where you can buy everything for your personal needs.

We found this place by googling around and booked a double room for two days in advance per e-mail. The people there are very friendly and helpful in any matter. The room has good size and standard, clean and also the bathroom is good and tidy.
It was very pleasant to stay and we can recommend this place.

it was a warm and nice stay , though it is vice verse of what we think about the place. as we had thought it would be like a lodging style where one would be treated like the guest ,but when we reached there it felt like we we going to a home of ages, it took only couple of minutes to understand, they made us feel completely that we had been to our own property back in ages. the rooms,place, quietness,food (breakfast) the staff all made us feel the that we know each other from ages. the experience should be felt. keep if up,we are looking forward to re visit the property soon.

Room Tip: the rooms are very simple and very specious and antique.
