Lalitha Palace is one of the most renowned palaces down south. It is a beautiful white monument with intricate detailing. Many movies are filmed inside of the palace with due permission. Also, half a part of the palace is commercially consumed. Visitors can spend their time by staying at the palace. The prices range from 15k to 50k. Many souvenir... More

We liked the stay a lot. There was a wedding scheduled during which it was quite hard to park our car, move about etc but otherwise we had a great time staying in the palace. It was well maintained and most of the palace's originality was retained. Except 1-2 people, we didn't find the staff to be disrespectful at all... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Lalitha Mahal Palace hotel. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, our room was clean and very comfortable with a beautiful view over the pool. It is a short drive from the city centre and Mysore Palace. The most special thing about Lalitha Palace is the stunning building, built in the early 20th... More

Stay in this hotel for 2 night. Got a very good discount. Usually this hotel is quite free, with only few guest staying overnight... Good value for money. Breakfast and Dinner quality can be improved. Lunch buffet with light live music is a must try. You can also visit for a evening coffee and snacks.

Beautiful White Heritage Palace building, large staircases, age old lift with a sofa, royal sawari at the gate, huge property with lawns, guards in traditional outfit ..all these gave a grand and royal experience which was satisfying. Our room was on the first floor with pool view and had all amenities, good comfy bed, AC, tea/coffee machine and a small... More

Booked the hotel via makemytrip! A classic example of how amazing things look online. The property is huge! But is poorly managed. The hotel's a property of ITDC and is directly under the purview of the central government. May be the only reason why this amazing property is under maintained. The hotel is highly understaffed! But they are helpful. They... More

This is a very splendid old building and worth the experience for one night. It is not properly maintained nor has it been for many years. The staff are friendly and helpful where they can be but if you have any problems don't expect too much to happen. You just have to go with the flow and enjoy the place... More

I visited the property in August 2016 along with family. We had always admired the grandeur of the Lalith Mahal Palace from afar and it took about 20 years and countless visits to Mysore to finally stay here. And boy, it didn't disappoint! To truly appreciate the scale and majesty of the erstwhile palace, one should take a tour of... More

This palace has been converted into a "heritage" hotel and is run by ITDC. The building is beautifully maintained and has echoes of the grandeur kings lived in! But thanks to the callous attitude of the people who run this hotel we got the impression of it being a bhoot bungalow. The staff are distant and unfriendly. We wanted to... More

Dassera in Mysore is a must-do for travel bugs. The charm of lights sweeps you off your feet effortlessly. You won't fall though, such is the crowd. So, like all trips, it takes some deliberation on where you choose to stay. We needed a calm place to sleep after all the exhibitions, food fests and endless selfies.. In a crowded... More
