Archana Guesthouse is located just next to the Tungabhadra river and also within walking distance of Virupaksha Temple and Hampi Bazaar. The best thing about this hotel was the excellent view of Tungabhadra river and the hillocks beyond it from the Archana Guesthouse Restaurant. The rooms were average with basic amenities but the food was good. The owner/manager was helpful... More

We stayed here for a night, the best part of the guest house was it's location. It's very close to the river and the main bazaar area is walking distance from here. It's also just a 5 minute walk from the place where Lakshmi, the elephant is bathed in the Tungabhadra River. The rooftop also has a good view.

The hotel is in cahoots with various rickshaw drivers, who will try their best to overcharge and scam you for everything (money exchange, tours, restaurants, etc.). We managed to pay less than most other tourists in the hotel (we paid 700rs per night, others apparently paid up to 3000), but it was still much more than the room was worth.... More

I was in Hampi for 3 days, and this place was really great, the family was so nice and friendly. If you don't car about the cleaning, the room is simple and correct. It's enough to sleep well. The view is just amazing !

Visited this place in September and chose a room quickly, only for us to later find out that we were paying quite a lot more than we should for a dirty, hot, dimly lit room. Like nearly double what you can find most other places. Most places in Hampi are like this - this one just costs more than the... More

What can I say about about Archana. Firstly, it's great for breakfast! The view is almost unbeatable for Hampi (topped only by the Laughing Buddah across the river). We found Ravi the owner to be very friendly and nice and everything was fair and straight forward with our bill at the end of our stay. The rooms are not that... More

If you short on cash and really don't care much about the cleanliness since you gonna be out the whole day, then this place is fine. It's not the cleanest or spacious place to stay in. Get off on one side of the bed and you are at the main door, get off on the other side and you are... More
