itinerary, hotel, car rental suggestion - please help

hello destination experts

i am planning a hampi-badami-aihole-pattadakal trip in december. hubli will be our base since chennai has direct train connectivity.

plan is to spend 5-6 days total. age group is wide with kids and elders.

thinking of the following itinerary -does it sound reasonable?

day 1 - reach hubli around 7am, take a rental car and drive to badami. see badami attractions. stay in badami

day 2 - visit aihole, pattadakal. night halt in hospet

day 3 - hampi sightseeing

day 4 - hampi sightseeing including anegundi, kishkinda, anjanadri et al

day 5 - drive to hubli. sight see in hubli

day 6 - leave by train at 8.20pm to chennai, rest in hubli during the day.

make sense? any changes?

hotels

hotel malligi in hospet sounds good. worried about badami hotels - neeed clean toilet and bedroom. suggestions on badami and hubli hotels.

car

we probably need 2 cars. any good car rental agencies in hubli? pls help.

thanks

Hi,

Itinerary is good but you can include Bijapur & drop Hubli.

Hotel Mallige in Hospet is good or you can try kishkinda resorts in Hospet.

Hubli,you can try Hotel Naveen International or The Hans

I would agree. On day 2, see Aihole & Pattadakal at a relaxed pace and reach Bijapur by evening. Spend day 3 in Bijapur. On day 4 morning (early), you can drive to Hampi and resume your Hampi programme (half-day 4, full day 5 and half-day 6).

Thanks Deepak and Wanderlust. Will consider adding Bijapur.

I cannot drop Hubli - that is the point where we get off and get on the train from Chennai.

any suggestions on car rental agencies in Hubli ? (or should i post in a hubli forum)?

thanks agaiin
