Stayed here for 2 nights as part of an organised trip to Hampi and while I have certainly stayed in worse places while travelling around India, there were a few things that put us off.
On the plus side, the room we were given on the top floor (floor 3) was a decent enough size, had clean bedding and towels, had a comfortable bed, appeared pretty clean, and even had decent satellite TV. So far so good . . . .
However, on the negative side, the windows that led on to the balcony didn’t close properly and were tied closed with a piece of string, not the best security I’ve ever seen. The bathroom was also a little bit on the tired side and there was only hot water at set times.
But perhaps the most disconcerting thing about the hotel was that we had visitors in the night, at least a couple of mice that ran across the room or scuttled on the ledge above the windows. The funny thing was when we approached reception and told them we had mice they kinda looked at us like we were idiots and that mice weren’t something that should be an issue. Reluctantly the reception guy gave us a couple of other options for rooms on the first and second floor, but all this really did was made us appreciate how nice the room (comparatively) we already had was. The rooms on floors 1 and 2 were far, far shabbier than those on the third floor – worth noting if you decide to stay here.
In the end we had no real choice but to try and block up the holes where the mice seemed to come through and live with the problem – fortunately they never tried to join us in bed so I guess things could have been worse!!
We ate both nights at the veg restaurant at the front of the hotel, as others have said, was surprisingly chap and tasty veggie food. The fact that the restaurant is frequented by lots of locals is probably all the recommendation you need really!!
Overall while the room looked nice enough, the mice issue, combined with the fact that Hospet isn’t the nicest town in India, would be enough to dissuade us to return to this hotel again.
The rooms on the third floor seemed much better than those on the lower levels.
