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

Hotel is situated close to the centre, but in a quiet alley, near to the river. It's family bussines with friendly people, stuffand even tuk tuk drivers. Hotel has its own restaurant with good food. You will be delighted by the view from restaurant, you could see the river, rocks, trees. This place is attractive even for monkeys, wchich looking... 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

I made the mistake of going to Hampi over the Christmas period, and I probably got the last room available in Hampi. I still don't think that that is justification for selling a room which, at best, should cost 500 rupees, for 2000! It was like a prison cell! 2 small beds and 1 low table were the sum total...

This place has possibly the most incredible views :) That's what you pay for as I'm pretty sure it's not the room.. They're not the worst by any means but for basic rooms your definitely paying over the odds (although the price does seem to vary wildly from person to person which I think is pretty unfair but I suppose...

This place was nice, the views were amazing (we had a garden room that looked out on to the river). The rooms were basic which was fine but a little smelly, I suppose that could be our backpacks though! Something just wasn't quite amazing with it though. The owners were nice, although the prices of the rooms varied depending on... More

We moved to Archana from another guesthouse when we wanted more time as it seemed relatively quiet for the main town of Hampi. The Owner Ravi and his wife Manjulas were friendly and Ravi especially was a great help in fixing our needs while in Hampi and for onwards travel. The food served on the veranda overlooking the river was... More
