MYSORE RESOURCE PAGE
There are many options for accommodations in Mysore. Those who would like to save money can find very affordable rooms and those who would like to have 5 star accommodations can find those as well. Generally houses and "homestays" are nicer than the cheaper hotels. It is easy to book over the internet and it is sometimes possible to find bargain prices on the 5 star hotels. Our retreat will be towards the end of the high season. It is a good idea to book in advance.
For 3 star Hotels:
Gayatri Apartments (very clean comfortable rooms close to the venue)
GETTING TO MYSORE
Many people prefer to get a taxi from Bangalore to Mysore, especially if they arrive in the middle of the night. This usually costs around Rs. 3000. A little more if you use AC. There are lots of cab companies. Here are a few of them. It is possible to get a cam on the spot at the airport but you will save money by booking in advance, especially if you arrive at some terrible hour of the night as we often do. There are buses to Mysore nearly every minute of the day, some of them from the Airport.
