Broke But Fabulous: Stay In Mansion 1907, A 110-Year-Old House, In Mysore At Just INR 500
A Mix Of India And British
Built as a big residence in 1907, for a businessman, Mansion 1907 is a backpackers and solo travellers paradise. Staying in a large 110-year-old mansion, with a mix of Indian and British, while paying so less for so much, sounds like a win-win to us. Located just 1.2 kilometres from the Mysore Palace, this house is spread over two floors, with a terrace that doubles as a lounge. The facade is a pleasant off-white, with pillars on either side of the entrance, straight outta the British times.
Coupled with the chairs and a few plants, the entrance is welcoming, with open doors and open arms. The theme of the house in terms of linen and upholstery is orange and green, and the cushions, pillows, table and more are draped in these colours. The walls are decorated with pictures and paintings, and the interiors are large and spacious. You can relax on their terrace with a book, as there is a book exchange facility here or just sit by yourself or with your friends and enjoy yourself. The hotel has free WiFi and some board games too if the technology isn’t your thing on a holiday.
So Much At So Little
The house has an option of private rooms or bunk beds, and it also has 11 bathrooms, so there’s no waiting business involved here. Each bed comes with attached reading light, plug points and adequate storage. All linen is also provided. There’s an attached kitchen for meals, but they are not included in the package. All rooms are air-conditioned and there’s also cable TV and laundry facilities. A bunk in the dorm costs INR 500 and a private room starts at INR 1,400. Dorms have 4 and 6-bed options, with the added female dormitory option as well.
Things To Do
The Mysore zoo is just 800 metres away. The Mysore Palace, a tourist favourite, is 1.2 kms away too. All tourist attractions are very close to the mansion and the farthest is the Brindavan Gardens, 16 kms away. If you want to have something other than the food from the kitchen and go out, restaurants around are aplenty. The Gufha restaurant in Hotel Pai Vista has a cave theme, serving multi-cuisine food. You could also go skydiving if you want to check something off the list of things to do!
