“Decent place, average food, terrible waiters.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Place is pretty OK for the price they charge. This is the 2nd time we are staying here, the first time being way back in 2009. Nothing much has changed since then except for the addition of the BLUE MIST restaurant, which, for me, is synonymous with "eat there if you want to feel terrible about being served". The waiters are in general very lazy and food takes a long time to arrive. AND! if you happen to see a waiter with a huge hanging belly, remember his name is ARVIND and remember to avoid him like plague. I have never seen such an arrogant and brash person waiting a table. If I visit Hospet again and don't choose stay in Malligi, it will be because of him. His presence made eating a sick affair.

That apart, a message to the maintenance/house-keeping folks at Malligi: Have you heard of something called DOOR STOPPERS? If yes, then please have them installed on every door (bath included) that has a spring type closing mechanism. It is impossible to enter or exit, with luggage, if you are alone. And why does it take you more than a month to facelift your gym??

Tip to travelers on NH-13 from Chitradurga: Eat light on this ~140km stretch. Such is the condition of the last 30km on this road that you can hear your innards cry. Simply terrible.

This hotel located very close to the bus and railway station, is attractive and worth the money spend. Rooms were neat and clean, with enough space Has 2 restaurants with good food, nice ambience and moderate prices. Pool was clean. Rooms service and staff were helpful with a smile always.
Hampi is 10 kms from Hospet and is connected via autos, taxi cabs or buses.

The rooms were spacious and clean.The room service was prompt and very good and the food was decent.The Hotel has facilities including a pool & restaurant. Didnt try out the pool but it looked decent and well maintained.Great options across 3-4 restaurants. Breakfast was limited but tasty. We tried at Temptations & Blue Mist for dinner and it was yummy. It is very reasonably priced

Nice 3 star hotel at hospet. value for money. good big rooms. hospet town is not at all clean but once you enter the hotel premises it is altogether a different environment. temptation restaurant is too good. Complementary breakfast had loads of options to choose from. We had lunch and dinner also here during our 2 nights stay. Tried Chinese and north Indian and both were equally good and mouthwatering. The only set back is the age old box type TV. They should now start replacing those with LCD and provide all channels which normally comes with dish tv or tata sky. Otherwise the evening time becomes boring since there is nothing you can do there other than watching tv. Overall a very nice stay. I would recommend to every traveler to explore this place.

Room Tip: Ask reception to show different room options, be satisfied and choose one.

This hotel was quite good for an out of the way city like Hospet. It was convenient for the sites at Hampi. The room was very clean, though a little bit worn. We stayed for 7 nights and had food in the restaurant at lunch and dinner 7 times. The breakfast was pretty good, but nothing special. However, the lunch at the non-veg restaurant was extremely good 6 of the 7 times. This was some of the best food we've had in India and very reasonably priced. The one time that wasn't good was once when the dish served was almost all bones; I don't know what happened hat day. Overall, I recommend the restaurant and the hotel.

Hotel malligi was a perfect choice during our visit to Hampi. Hampi is just 12km away from hospet. There are not many hotels in Hampi.. so our obvious choice was this one. Its not far from rail junction and the staff where very courteous. Food was extraordinary. Service is great. The rooms were neat. We stayed 4 days there and never felt even once we need a change in hotel. There are even shops for books and basic toiletries in the hotel. Hotel Malligi would definitely be my choice if ever I would visit Hospet again.

Do taste sizzling brownie in Bluemist restaurant.
