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

If you want to rest and enjoi the amazing river view this is the place. The location near of the river is perfect to expend your time reading and eating in the restaurant. The plain naan is incredible with a very good price. I recomend this place.

Ravi is a brilliant host. This place is pretty decent for a stay. Since we had been here over a rare long weekend, almost all the guest houses were full and Ravi was charging about Rs. 1500 per room. (With A/C). During other times, its about Rs. 500-600. Very clean and a brilliant view of TB river. A word of... More

Great place, great rooms and owner (ravi) who just love to help you anytime and with everything you need. I really recommend it! Oh, and they have the best view in hampi for sure. I really enjoyed staying there. Maybe it's not the cheapest but worth it. Some levels above the rest.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were all friendly and the food was great. Hampi is such a beautiful place and our stay here was so nice we ended up staying 2 more nights. The view from the terrace is beautiful with kingfishers and eagles there every single day, morning and afternoon. The drinks were reasonably priced and... More

The Garden Rooms at this property would be worth the premium prices requested if the noisy staff (and their dog!) was not so careless in invading the space with their shrieking family while guests are trying to rest or use the facility. The very nice, competent and helpful owner should correct this before we can review this part of the... More

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
