We wanted to visit Mysore for a break and to take our lil darling daughter to meet her fav animals in the Mysore Zoo. Stumbled upon homestay option, searched and shortlisted Sunlarge, reason simple, value for money, location, etc. Booked room by making advance payment, Mr. Arun (Manager of Sunlarge) was helpful in confirming the booking. Locating the place was easy with help of GOOGLE MAP, the place was as expected. Rooms are clean, just enough space, & homely. It has all the required items like AC, Fridge, TV, Spacious rooms, cupboards, wooden floorings, Chairs, Bed, good bathroom with bare minimum toileteries. Food is very homely i,e. less spicey and less oily, but not cheap (will cost 60 bucks per head per lunch/dinner), they have sufficient car parking.

The place is near to Maharaja Palace, ZOO, Karanjikere Lake, Chamundi Hills and Jaganmohan place. The place is 26km far from KRS, but thats fine. Staff is very helpfull is guiding you with the directions. Staff even got us some emergency medicines when required.

We got the booking @ 1750 per day including complementary breakfast, we had our lil daughter, her food was not considered while billing.

Zoo was fantastic with many unseen birds and you can have good view of all the animals.
Karanjikere Lake is good for boating and allows to be in the enclosure of Peacocks(Great Experience). Maharaja Palace was great to view on the Saturday when it is fully lit in the evening.
In Total, it was worth ecperiencing Mysore @ Sunlarge.

Room Tip: Good homestay - recommended

The house and rooms are lacking in charm, but Arun and his staff more than make up for this. We arrived in Mysore after a long and exhausting trip from the north. When we came in, and while the rooms were clean, I found them to be lacking in charm and style. However, there is a regular staff which is always hanging around the house, and my husband and I found them to be very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was copious and delicious, and an extra dinner there is simple, but filling and good value.

We had a problem with our Indian SIM card while in Mysore, and Arun was unbelievably helpful. He spent many hours with us trying to solve the problem, including driving us to the Airtel office (the provider). He let us use his cellphone to make inquiries, and made phone calls on our behalf too. My husband and I were amazed how generous he was with his time, and were were impressed by his willingness to help us out. He is a lovely man, and his warmth and smiles more than make up for the uninspired decor.

The house is away from the city centre, which we liked, but other might prefer to be closer to the palace. It’s a good option for people who are staying in Mysore for longer periods.

We found Sunlarge Homestay on net its Very clean and comfortable stay, hosts are very friendly and helpful with anything you might need in Mysore. Great for a shorter stay in Mysore, as a first place to stay for a long stay in Mysore, We Booked accommodation very easyly.... Arun the host respond to our emails & phone calls in a timely manner and answer all questions.. even the most trivial. Location – Sunlarge Homestay is in a great location... easy access to the All areas of Mysore , supermarket, fruit food courts, free internet, telephone, books.. What can't be found around the corner can easily be accessed by their cab itself.Cafe - Excellent variety of food, prepared fresh and with high standards of hygiene. If you love food..you will love the the food prepared by them..Staff – Homestay staff that understand the meaning of "service" and love providing it. It isn't just a job!Accommodation - Really, really, really clean you have your own bath room.
Value for Money - You will find good accommodation in Mysore.... but of course without all the wonderful trimmings at Sunlarge homestay Children get more place to play... it depends on what you are looking for! Sunlarge homestay was like my home away from home in Mysore. The host Mr Arun & the other staff are wonderful hosts. If you are looking for a positive community atmosphere in Mysore..this is the place for you to Stay .

We booked the rooms thru' Mr. Arun for 4 adults and 4 kids. Mr. Arun was very frindly and accomodating. He gave us the fisrt floor which had 2 bedrooms and a huge common area (Living and Dinning). The kids had lots of place to run around.
The place is very clean, specially the bathrooms. Very good value for money.
Room rate is Rs. 1500 for A/C and home cooked food is extra (which is not expensive at all).
