“Superb Maharaja Suite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

The Maharaja Suite is something i've never experienced anything like it before. huge rooms to easily accommodate 4-5 people. pricing is good too. service was great including service at late night and breakfast. valet and other staff were very courteous as well. highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: choose the Maharaja Suite which is garden facing with Balcony.

Located at the heart of Mysore city - you're never more than a 10 min drive to any part of Mysore city. The service of the staff there was phenomenal to say the least. Everything that one requests for, is delivered in a meticulous manner. Right from the gaurd that opens the gate for you, to the staff that checks you in, all have a sense of ownership for the brand, Royal Orchid. This trait is something that's becoming rare these days. Definitely 5 stars out of 5!!

Friends, We stayed at Orchid Metropole over the week end (6th & 7th June'14).

The rooms are excellent with a classy royal touch (though the passage between the TV and BED were limited and care has to be taken to ensure kids don't get hurt in the sharp edges of the cots while running around). The sit out verandah facing green lush and trees adds to the charm of our stay bringing back nostalgic memories of early years. The bath tub provision in standard rooms is a big plus

The vegeterian food was very good and the staff were very courteous.

Minor details like filling up of - coffee table, bath room utilities, with replenishment could be attended to by the House keeping post earlier guest check outs.

The pool timing is a bit odd (8.00A.M to 5.00P.M) and request for an earlier opening or late closure was also turned down. Further there are no tubes for the kids. With no wall demarcation between the 2 feet and 4 feet heights the seniors cant really take a bath or stretch out and read by pool area without 100% supervision of the kids within the pool (the notice board does mention that kids under 12 need to have elderly monitoring!!).

But for the above minor aspects, the property is excellent to unwind and value for money.

Room Tip: In Heritage type rooms the bed is two single beds and for family of three with grown up kid would ne...

Good heritage hotel in the centre of the city. My room was on ground floor with the attached balcony opening in the garden which has shady mango trees.. Room was spacious and clean with old wooden furniture maintained well.. The AC, fan and mini bar refrigerator in my room were noisy apart from which everything was quiet and calm despite being on the main road.. Bathroom was spacious with bath tub and Geyser for hot water.. Limited supply of hot water at a time, so can't have a long shower (when stressed)..In room menu card for the restaurant Tiger trail (which was pretty busy otherwise) had very limited options.. Had tried a few items from the restaurant and they were good.. I liked the khichdi(mother's recipe).. Good if you want to have something light and healthy.. Breakfast had good variety.. Staff was friendly.. With few exceptions, i had a nice stay.. Can't comment about value for money coz for me it was a very good deal and was above par.. With that.. recommended..

good hotel with spacious rooms and high ceilings.good service,it was nice of them to upgrade us to the maharaja suite.The room was well- ventilated and had a big verandah with sofas and dining table.We stayed there only for one night and ordered room service for dinner.Service took some time and the food was average.We found some old lizard droppings on the table in the verandah which were yet to be cleaned! one of the air conditioners in our room was leaking and fan cum light decor in the verandah looked quite hideous.Another disadvantage is that there are no lifts to access some of the spacious rooms located on the top floor which could pose a hassle for senior citizens who may find it difficult to climb the stairs.But by and large we had a fairly comfortable experience.

Excellent hotel for family at Mysore.
This is Palace converted into hotel,
The ambiance is awsome with paintings of palaces in mysore putup on walls.
My family liked the Zoola(Swing) at the reception, the gardens and the swimming pool.
There was normal Royal orchid warmth in the service.
Breakfast was excellent and so was dinner.
The large balconies in our rooms, with sit out facilities, having old ceiling fan on top added to charm of staying.

overall a wonderful experience for the whole family.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the opposite building to main building- the view is really good.

A lovely, charming hotel in a historic building lovingly preserved. Airy, tropical ambience, nice verandahs (patios) looking out on greenery, excellent service (though sometimes slow). Built originally by the majarajah to entertain dignitaries, it retains old world charm while providing modern amenities, including an effective air conditioner - a must in the summer months.
