It was my first trip to Mysore, I was lucky to find this place. The couple who runs the place is lovely and helps you in everything.
The flat is is amazing and really clean. Hot water and a furnished kitchen. The perfect place to feel at home.
Gokulam is a lively neighbourhood with so many places to eat or chill.
I highly recommend the Green Lotus House.
I highly recommend the green lotus house for anyone travelling to mysore!! I had a beautiful and memorable stay! I have stayed at many hotels and homestays before, but this one stands out in my memory mainly due to a) perfect location of the apt b) self sufficient amenities and furnishings and c ) hosts Hari and Ananya went over and above to take care of me in every way.
More about each of these points. The house is situated very conveniently with everything important just a minute or two away by foot! This was a sure winner for me. Well known cafes are just on the street behind, a fruit shop sells lovely fresh fruits daily from 7 am onwards. The KPJ Shala is a few minutes walk, Bharat Shala ( where I studied) is only a one minute walk! This is great for lazy yoga students like me:)
There is even a bakery and a quaint little idli shop where many yogis gathered to have chai and idli after practice. The house itself is beautifully furnished and very aesthetically decorated. The first floor where we lived has a vast living room and lovely bedrooms with attached bathrooms. The wifi is excellent. I was able to Skype from the terrace! There is a fully automated washing machine, and my treasure of the trip - a gorgeous sit out. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, wifi, RO water cans, an absolutely amazing terrace which gives a view into the whole of mysore. The icing on the cake were the hosts Ananya and Hari. they are the most generous, helpful and kind people one can meet. I feel truly blessed to have stayed with them. They always went over and beyond for any little thing I needed. They knew how to make me feel at home and I felt completely relaxed. If you are looking for a place to stay in mysore, this is it. A beautiful oasis of peace! Thank you!!!

Green Lotus in Gokalam Mysore is perfectly situated to access the many yoga shalas and yogi cafes. The residence is spacious and clean. They charge a substantial deposit which ensures that the communal spaces are treated with respect. Ananya went out of her way to ensure that our stay was exceptional and it was. When one of us fell ill she rushed over with special food and medicine. We can wholeheartedly recommend Green Lotus for a home away from home experience.
On the whole, my experience at Green Lotus has been very peaceful and calming. The place is immaculately clean and well maintained, with a beautiful open terrace where I spent plenty of time reading quietly, and sometimes watching the sun set. It has a nice organic ambiance that made me feel at home throughout the stay. The hosts, Ananya and Hari are very warm people and ready to help in any possible way. Besides, the house is perfectly located. I could find groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables and all the other daily necessities one requires, within a distance of 500 metres. It is also at walking distance from the yogashalas.

I stayed at Green Lotus house in March 2015 for ashtanga yoga practise at KPJ. I am very thankful to Ananya for all the love I received from her during my stay. She supported me totally in helping improve my health. She helped determine my vitamin D levels, arranged blood tests at home itself, introduced Patrick who helped in healing, insisted on me having milk and magnesium every day! Everything helped me immensely! Ananya made wonderful organic food and juice for me with so much love every day that it healed me. She was like a mother to me in a difficult moment. Thanks so much Ananya , I love you. And I will definitely be back to stay with you. Thank you so much Anand and her family ;)
