The Royal Orchid is probably the best luxury hotel to stay in, if you want to stay in relative luxury at night after a long day of exploration in the ruins of Hampi. Located just about 11km or so (30 minutes by road), it's probably the best place to stay in - unless of course you are looking to stay in Hampi Bazaar / Anegondi.

My wife and I stayed here in December 2013 for three nights. Friends had recommended the hotel from earlier stays and we weren't disappointed. Staff, service and food quality was very good - no complaints there. We were driving our own car and the hotel found someone to get our car cleaned (at additional cost) - which was a big help.

The only thing to be mindful of is this - the main restaurant is in a central atrium of sorts and all the rooms are kinda spread around this atrium. On one of the days we wanted to sleep early (2230), we could hear the general noise from the restaurant in the room a little too clearly for comfort. We could hear the sounds from the TV and murmur of voices from adjoining rooms as well.... Some soundproofing may be a good idea, better still - try and find a room in the corner!

Room Tip: Get one of the corner rooms for added sound privacy

Heritage Tourist attractions in India usually lack decent staying and eating facilities, but not so at Hampi and World Heritage site. While there are loads of websites dedicated at Hampi, this hotel makes up for very good comfort accomodation. Make sure you read up enough to know where to go, and come with good cameras to make the most of Hampi. Also come with swimming trunks since this hotel has a swimming pool and soaks up all travails of a day trek into ruins. The hotel itself has very hospitable staff and a jogging track to take advantage of. The morning breakfast is extremely tasty and the only negative stems from not changing it often. There are 2 sets of rooms, those in the main building and those in the annexe behind the swimming pool. My vote goes for the ones behind. Overall, the facilities are this hotel make for very good and comfortable stay. Hospet has also many traditional eateries for those interested in local cuisine and we went around savouring all delicacies as we stayed here.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Annexe building facing the pool on the first floor have very good views inside and on the outside and have easy access to the pool.

I visited Hampi in Dec'13, a very beautiful place indeed, a must visit for those who have interest in Indian history. We stayed at this hotel which is a half hour drive from Hampi. For a small town like Hospet, the hotel was pretty decent. You would like it if you dont expect a 5 star service. Rooms are decent, clean. They have a swimming pool and a spa. I used their spa services and it was quite good. The food was also good although they dint have a huge spread and had limited options to chose from. Overall a nice experience.

Dear Guest

Greetings from Royal Orchid Central Kireeti – Hospet!!!

Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback.

It is a great privilege for team Royal Orchid Central Kireeti, to have you at our hotel.

Team Royal Orchid Hospet strive together to ensure all guests staying with us enjoy the best of the services and consequently it’s encouraging for us to learn your experience .

We compile menu of our buffet as per the common taste but do agree that sometime it does not match the taste of all guest, hence to provide the best buffet dining option to the guest we take out of buffet display, dish orders included in the same price.

Thank you for such encouraging review about our hotel - I am sure it will be of immense help to other travellers planning their trips to Hampi to choose our hotel to stay.
Looking forward to have another chance to serve you and your family.

Regards
Sanjay Jha

Enjoyed staying at this hotel. When I check in the room was not ready so end up with different room. Found the shower was slipping down on the bar while I take shower and Air condition didnt worked. Some of people working there were so friendly and made sure all is ok during my stay.
According to my experiece with this hotel Couples can stay for few days :)

Room Tip: Make sure your room is not close to the generator.

Really, without any doubt, I never expected such a nice stay in a small place like Hosepete. Staff is very cooperative and have always smiling faces. Rooms are tooooooo good. Very spacious and neatly maintained. wonderful preparations in restaurant. Worth staying..... I can say in two words.

Room Tip: No specific tip...... go for any room.
