“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We stayed at the Royal Orchid (Hospet) for one night during a visit to Hampi. I made the booking on phone, and I immediately received a booking/reservation number. When we arrived, we were received well. We requested for a room overlooking the fields at the back, and were promptly provided one with a beautiful view. All requests that we made from the room (extra shampoo, dental kit, coffee/tea, water etc.) were addressed fairly quickly. The restaurant was quite decent too. During rush hours at breakfast, its always best to go for the buffet in any hotel, and was the case here. But during dinner, we ordered a-la-carte. We asked them to pack some food for us, which they did. We checked out the next day, but left our luggage in the hotel as our train was in the night. When we got back, we barely had about 30 minutes to have dinner in the restaurant, get our bags and leave. We ordered a-la-carte again and were served fairly quickly.

Now for some pain points. The gym on the topmost floor is adequate, but could be better. The treadmill needs to be serviced. The biggest problem with this hotel is that the bathroom did not have any ventilation. I mean zero ventilation. I was told at the reception that this is the situation with all the rooms.

Overall, the stay was quite pleasant (barring the bathroom).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the fields at the back.

Most of the reviews of this hotel are very good, but I am afraid I cannot summon up a great deal of enthusiasm for this establishment. The waiters are friendly and efficient and the food is quite good. However, the reception staff really need to get their act together. Reception is the heart and soul of any hotel. The level of spoken English was surprisingly poor and several matters I raised were met with blank looks. This is not good enough in a 4-star hotel - even one with stunning architecture, a good swimming pool and reasonable rooms.

I had been with Family to this property to visit Hampi... Had booked in this place through Expedia.
My expectations about Royal Orchid group was way higher than what we had experienced....
The rooms were neat enough, food was good & the hotel as such was decent.
The challenges experienced - Lack of communication between teams... The front office team was not accepting the booking contents from Expedia inspite everything being in black & white...Getting the extra bed organized was a night mare... Room ammenties were not great, infact nothing expect for very basic items...Room towels were not good for a brand like Royal Orchid...Might be my expectations were very high...

Room Tip: Travel with your own ammenities & Towels...

I would recommend this hotel, good ambience, good food with reasonable rates, neat and clean rooms, good housekeeping. Breakfast, lunch which we took the buffet on the first day had a good spread and was tasteful. However, the next day we ordered Ala Carte and it took about 45 mins to serve us with the food. The Hotel I can rate in between 3-4 star hotels.
Worth the money spent.

If you are looking to go to Hampi then would certainly recommend the Royal Orchid Central Kireeti.Its got a great location bang next to the station so that when you arrive in Hospet you can quickly recharge and dont have to make a long trip to the hotel. Hampi is also close by (11 kms) and the drive is good. Hotel rooms are very good and the service is good as well.Highly recommended

We stayed at royal orchid at Hospet for 3 nights. This is the best place to stay while visiting Hampi. Its a 10 km drive to Hampi which can be covered in 20 minutes or less. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly. The food is decent at their restaurant. They have a good pool to soak in after a day of walking around the ruins.
On the flip side, the towels have a lot of lint on them which causes them to float in the air in your room. And the waiters at the in house restaurant "echo" could be more efficient with bringing the tea and coffee. We had to ask multiple times and then wait for over 15 minutes to get the coffee and tea each morning.
These are small matters. All in all it was a great stay and very relaxing. We enjoyed our stay here.

My choice of Royal Orchid Kireeti in Hospet during the independece day weekend trip to Hampi was based on two things. First- reviews and comparisons online and second- location of Royal Orchid.
Hospet as a town holds nothing special. Infact the roads are quite a challenge. So unless you have work in Hospet specifically, one should never stay inside the town. If your destination is Hampi, then Royal Orchid is ideal.
It is situated at the junction of the roads that lead to the station on one side, to TB Dam on one side, to the town on one side and towards Hampi on one side.
After a long day of sightseeing at Hampi or TB dam, there is nothing more sooting than to come back to the welcoming ambience of Royal Orchid and their comfortable rooms.
The rooms are well appointed and clean. The beds are not ideal for someone with a lingering back and neck problem, else they are extremely inviting and you want to sleep forever. Like most star hotels, they had a kettle and accompaniements. For me a working kettle is what I need most when travelling so that I can make my own coffee. I asked specifically for a room that overlooked the paddy fields.
The rains were a blessing in disguise for a weather spoilt Bangalorean like me. The paddy fields and canal view are breathtaking and soothing. I ensured I spent time sitting in the room balcony, enjoying a cup of coffee and taking in the cool breeze, light rain and greenery.
The staff is very courteous. At every step they ensured our stay was comfortable. Pool is a fantastic diversion for kids.
The travel desk was also very helpful and practical in chalking out travel plans and routes. Parking attendents were prompt and courteous.
Buffet spread at Echo for both breakfast and lunch is sumptuous though I wish they had more continental spread. Nonetheless, Indian spread is very good and the live counter for dosas and omelettes is not to be missed. Most of the staff seem to be apprentices so co-ordination is something that still can be improved.
We had one meal at Ginseng- the oriental restaurant and the entire menu was the chef's recommendation. The lemon cheesecake was on par with some of the best I've eaten.
The bar and lounge could do with a bit more energy in terms of lighting, music and bar menu. It isnt something I would recommend unless you cannot do without a drink. Given the limited choice of spirits, the person in charge made excellent cocktails.
Most travellers wouldnt care to use the gym and spa but we did use the gym on one day. It has all the equipment needed for a simple workout.
There are emerging resorts all over hospet and we did have a look at a few of them. I would still recommend Royal Orchid for their efficiency and location.
It was overall a great stay.
