Stayed here for a couple of nights lately and on balance it was ok for a brief stay with easy access to the Mysore Palace. The hotel is right opposite the Palace and you can easily see the light show on Sunday nights without having to go far at all.
There are loads of shops in easy walking distance including some official state shops selling local Mysore silk.
Just one thing worth noting....the local mosque is next door, so expect to be woken up at 5:30 am, but hey this is India.
The wi-fi was unavailable due to 'problem' throughout my stay, despite promises that it would be fixed, but again this is not uncommon.
Breakfast was a bit of an average experience and was about the most uninspiring breakfast I had had on any of my holidays to India. Nothing wrong with it, just a bit of a disappointment.
All in all, this hotel has the potential to be amazing. It has THE location, but would benefit from getting its act together in the kitchen / dining department. The rooftop area would be amazing to watch the Palace illuminations from if they smartened things up, but we went next door instead.
