“Our most comfortable stay in India”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Lovely spacious rooftop apartment, with large balcony. Great breakfasts, helpful host. Look out for the procession going past the apartment on a Monday evening!

The Rooftop Retreat is a charming, secluded hideaway. It is spotlessly clean and the family really friendly and helpful. We asked the family to cook for us one of the evenings and it was wonderful food. Highly recommend staying here if you are in Mysore.

“Comfortable and homely stay at Rooftop Retreat”

We stayed at the Rooftop Retreat in Mysore for one night in July 2014. We stayed at the home upstairs with the sitout terrace. The home is elegantly furnished, clean and comfortable. The home is located in a residential neighborhood, a little away from the main roads and attractions, and worked well for us since we had a car. The Damodarans, our hosts, are a simple, down to earth family and we enjoyed our stay at the Rooftop Retreat.

“Comfortable and great food!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My husband and I stayed here in January 2014. We stayed in the smaller room downstairs which was adequate for us. The room is kept very clean although there is some road-side noise at night. I would recommend this place as the owners are very hospitable and the food is amazing. Overall this is a very good value place to stay.

“small, but clean, friendly and great breakfast”

The morning we arrived we made the booking. So only the small room on the ground floor was available and not the big rooftop one. The room was really small, but it was ok for a few nights. The owners were really helpful and friendly and everything was kept extremely clean. We could even refill our waterbottles. We could chose between indian and continental breakfast. We always had the indian one which was delicious!

Staying on the ground floor is a shame because there is just limited possibility to sit outside and relax. And there is no WIFI. It is out of town and a ricksaw is needed. It costs 50 Rupees one way to the center.

But it is still a great deal what you get for the money you pay. We surely will return. Just next time we will make an early booking for the rooftop room which looked amazing and huge.
