The only reason to stay here is the beautiful views from the balcony,as the guesthouse is located near the river.The rooms are nothing much.I chose to stay at one of the more expensive ones which have a (common) balcony with the aforementioned views.It was ok in size, pretty basic and not very clean.The owner was rather friendly although i didn't...

Horrible night, I think the title says it all. I woke up at 4am by two squealing rats trapped inside the toilet bowl that climbed the drainage pipe. The owner did not accept the responsibility and tried to blame me, saying that I let the rats in. Apart from that, the next morning my arms were all covered in wheals,... More

The family that own this place are really nice and friendly. The rooms are ok, just average. There is AC if required for a premium price. The bathroom is quite small and if the power is out the hot water doesn't work. And in Hampi the power is out a lot. The food is ok here as well. The location... More

We reached Hampi on early morning. First we tried to go through our guidebook but tuk tuk driver did not take us to the guesthouse we wanted to go. We found this hotel through tuk tuk driver. We took the non ac room for 300rs after bargaining with landlord lady. The room wasn't that clean. The food at their restaurant... More

We spent 4 nights here and loved our stay so much. The best thing about archana is the service. We arrived very late to Hampi at around midnight and the family were waiting for us to make us feel comfortable as soon as we arrived. Every delicious meal was cooked for us at whatever time we wanted and Adhi was... More

Found this place in the lonely planet and love it. Rooms are very clean and ac is good. Best thing about this place is the restaurant, view from here of the river and the banana plantation is amazing, and the curries were in our opinion some of the best we've had in India! Owner and staff are incredibly friendly and... More

I found this guesthouse to be clean, safe and well located. The family who own the guesthouse were very friendly. They booked trains for us and were helpful with providing information on the local sites. I would not advise guests to avail of the laundry service provided at the guesthouse. After washing, my clothes were no cleaner and the colour... More

Most of the guest houses looked pretty darn similar from the outside. You'll immediately recognize Arhana from the bright green and pink paint. The owner was very nice and not pushy at all. Many places in India have been very pushy about getting me to book trips and transportation through them. The owner was helpful and made my stay very... More

at the edge of the town i was greeted by a good young man to this guesthouse. I was with my fellow traveler and we found the place a good budget home to stay in Hampi. There was an attached bathroom and the room was relatively well kept and as we were here to explore hampi rather than relaxing ,... More
