I travelled from Bangalore to ooty via ksrtc non ac sleeper which will cost around aprox 700rs.
It took almost 12hrs to reach Ooty started at around night 10:30 from shantinagar bus stop.
The bus will stop at bandipur forest after Mysore for 3-4hrs bcz the forest is closed for entry from 6pm- 6am.
As soon I reach Ooty I checked in to Oyo 13231 sapphire garden view hotel which is near to the railway station and bus station around 500mts.
The cost of hotel is around approx 800- 1000rs it has classic rooms which are little old and delux rooms which are little costly check it out in Oyo app more details .
If u don't have any plans how to travel this hotel has the best plan to cover whole Ooty in 3days.
The hotel consists of 3day site seeing packages with site seeing bus which will cost approx 250-300rs per day per head which is very reasonable cost.
