We managed to get an air conditioning room here which was well priced and worked most of the time. But i think it had something caught in it an occasionally woke us up with loud buzzing but worth it for air con. The nutella pancakes and mango juices are so yum!! No hot water, but you dont need it in... More

Visited Hampi for the first time in April end, 2015. It's basically the off season time there during this period. Visited a couple of guest houses after arriving and tried to bargain the rates. This guesthouse got me mainly because of the view from the terrace since I love relaxing on the terrace. Nice view of Virupaksha temple on one... More

We stayed here as it was one of the only places we could find on 'hostelbookers'. At the start the staff felt friendly and very helpful, unfortunately, this was all just an act for you to take their excursions. If you book a trip through ANYONE else but them, you will get interrogated as to how much you paid, who... More

Having originally planned to stay for 3 nights we only stayed 1 and that was enough! From the pick up we had problems. His tuc tuc was broken and we had to walk from the bus depo. After spending the day out of the room we got back to no hot water, dirty beds, slow wifi (virtually unusable) and the... More

We came to Archana off the back of another acclaimed Lonely Planet review, but it appears another case of a gueststay riding their good write up and failing to maintain their high standards. This was proven by a bed bug infestation. After complaining we were put up in another room, perhaps with less bed bugs but still pretty filthy and... More

We stayed here for one night .. and that was enough. It is overpriced for what you get. There were dead insects all over the walls and the bathroom looked like it hadnt been cleaned in a year.. there was hot water though and service was nice. All in all id say you can give this one a miss!

This hotel is well situated in the Hampi bazaar. The staff here were very helpful and extremely kind and looked after us. We were here during the Hampi Utsava festival, so the prices were extraordinarily high considering the rooms were quite small and unclean and VERY LOUD. As I understand, prices are more reasonable during the rest of the year.... More
