My partner and I spent 6 days in Hampi on our 2-month India trip. Hands down, Hampi was our favourite place! The service was outstanding. Veeru, who is one of the Guest House Managers, always checked up on us to ensure we were comfortable and content. Veeru also arranged for an autorickshaw (a wonderful guy named Madha) to pick us up from the Hospet train station, to bring us to Gopi Guest House. We recommend you do the same, to avoid any problems. Kiran, the other Guest House Manager, is full of life and was very generous to his guests. He's very enthusiastic and offered us a tonne of information about things to do and see in Hampi and surrounding area.
The food was extraordinary and the ambiance of their rooftop restaurant, even better. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this guest house, not least because it was very relaxing, but because the guests, food, service, and ambiance, all make for a terrific Hampi experience.
