My stay at the Green Lotus House was delightful. I stayed for a month in the Zen Room, and was super happy with the arrangement. It is only a few blocks walk to the main yoga shalas in Gokulam, and is also very close to all sorts of great restaurants. The house is nice and comfortable, plenty large enough for hanging out, and has amenities that make life much easier, such as a washing machine and a full kitchen and refrigerator. The rooftop proved to be a great place to watch the sunset or sunrise, and to hang out during the cool evenings. The internet was fast and very reliable based on my experiences traveling in other parts of India. While the shower room was not in suite (the other two rooms in the house have in suite bathrooms), it was right next to the bedroom, and was essentially a private bathroom. The water was hot on demand, and plenty of rain-like flow came out of the shower head. Overall, there was really nothing I felt like I needed or wanted that wasn’t provided by this room and house. The best part about staying in the Green Lotus House – Zen Room was the incredible help provided to me by Ananya and Dr. Hari. They were so incredibly sweet and considerate, and not only did they take care of any minor problem that arose the moment they were asked, but proved to be good friends as well. They helped me arrange many great things to do around the city such as ayurvedic massage and a sightseeing trip to the Kabini River were I went on Safari and saw Tigers and Leopards. They also provided invaluable help with booking future airline flights, arranging a scooter rental, letting me know when special events were happening in town, and even brought me local Indian food take-out at the house a few times when they knew I was there. When I was having a hard time figuring out what to do next, they took me out to a great local restaurant so we could have an evening to chat. They really care about their guests to a point that goes way beyond simply helping with logistical details, and I am sure that we will continue to be great friends. A stay at the Green Lotus House is highly recommended.

Green Lotus house is in an excellent prime spot, very convenient for walking to Saraswathi's Shala. As a solo traveller, my family's worries for my trip and my own questions were all alleviated rapidly thanks to the perfect arrangements made by my hostess, Ananya. From the prompt communication to the safe airport pick up, she took care of everything. She even made the effort to give me a call in the US to ensure I had everything I needed days before leaving. Arriving in a new country was overwhelming (especially the flowing chaos of traffic) but I felt safe with my cab driver who even stopped to have breakfast with me! On arrival at Mysore, Ananya gave me a warm welcome! The house was beautiful, bright and cheerful just as I had imagined. I was impressed by the cleanliness and felt very comfortable with all amenities. I was excited to see the refreshing terrace, where the famous chamundi hill was visible. The next morning, we went for South Indian breakfast where we had great conversation. Ananya learned about my interests and immediately gave me hand written recommendations /contact information to dive in! Ananya is a host that definitely cares about her guests and is willing to help you get the most out of your trip. I like that she gave me recommendations beyond what is known to the typical yogi here, to ensure I had the most authentic experience during my stay. I took a couple of fun cooking classes with her while also gaining knowledge about Ayurveda. The food was delicious and I hope to make these dishes back home. I'm also really happy that Ananya helped set me up with a wonderful dance studio where I learned Bollywood, belly dancing and semi classical Indian dance! While staying here, I learned to relax, have patience and to enjoy the simple things. I am grateful to Ananya for the shared home cooked meals, help with planning sight seeing, and showing me where to get the best gifts for my loved ones! I thank my hosts Ananya and Hari for being there when I needed them most and sending me off with a smile!

I knew I'd be arriving well before check-in time, so I arranged with Drs. Ananya and Hari to let me know when the room would be ready. Not only did they let me know, they came and scooped me up from the cafe where I was waiting, chai and cake in hand! While I only stayed for a few days, I was overwhelmed by the hospitality Dr. Ananya affords her guests. The place is clean and spacious, and she's readily available with any needs. She even hosted a Diwali lunch for us, arriving in a beautiful sari with copious courses of delectables in tow. This is my fifth trip to India, and this place is certainly the most rule-bound of any I've stayed. Be prepared to sign a lease-type agreement on arrival. That being said, it's also one of the most organized and well-run places I've stayed. They're truly on top of everything.

Green Lotus House in Mysuru is a fantastic space, very comfortable and extremely well looked after. Its like a home away from home. It has everything in it's place. I had a few days there, had taken the entire apartment and found it very comfortable, secure and quiet. A warm welcome, a comfortable bed, good shower with enough wardrobe space and great kitchen with a gas stove, large refrigerator for storing food. Having a washing machine was a blessing since I had loads of laundry from my previous trip. There is a supermarket literally 1 minute away and the man who runs it was so helpful and kind. Great fruit shops and pharmacy right next door . Bus stop right at the corner. Rickshaw or tuk-tuk stand just a few steps away. I would highly recommend this apartment. The hosts were so kind and attentive without being in the way. They were very helpful and gave me great recommendations for getting around the city and for eating out. Five Star service from them both and a fantastic area , full of tiny cafes and yoga places, very close to the center so I could get around Mysuru with complete ease. Highly recommend them!

he Green Lotus House in Mysore was wonderful. I was very happy with my stay. They made everything very easy for you with recommendations on places to eat, shop, etc. It is located in the centre of Gokulum, where it is very easy to walk to the yoga Shala, cafes and shops. They even recommended a reliable rickshaw driver who spoke English. I had a very happy and comfortable time here and it truly felt like "home". Ananya is a very caring and wonderful person. She arranged everything easily and I highly recommend the Green Lotus House to anyone who wants a comfortable and lovely stay in Mysore!
