One of the things that stops travellers visit remote or far flung places (In India!) s lack of good clean accommodation. Not that Hampi is remote by any stretch of imagination - but till quite some time back, it only had hotels which offered very basic accommodation. Royal Orchid Kireeti is a hotel which I understand opened fairly recently, and caters to the crowd which likes its comforts (that includes me!)
The hotel as part of the Royal Orchid chain offers a similar kind of experience - fairly luxurious (but it does look part of a chain hotel!) though definitely not a five star one! It has nicely done rooms, a coffee shop and a bar with ambience similar to their properties in Bangalore. It also has a swimming pool, small but nice and clean. The rooms were squeaky clean, the loo had a nice bathtub, and our beds were very comfortable. In addition, the location is a big plus point - Its a 7 min walk from Hospet railway station However, its right in the middle of town, so you don't really a good view. You do have to take an auto or hire a bike and it would take you about half an hour to 45 mins to reach Hampi but its quite accessible really!
The food was so-so - but the service was fantastic. Overall - a really nice place to stay if you want to visit Hampi!
