Aptly named Shanthi, this place is really very peaceful and relaxing. Built at the helm of paddy fields and nearby Tungabhadra river, this place is perfect to stay away from your stressful lives. The guest house has basic amenities and nothing to boast of. The rooms are simple and have the bare necessities. Rooms were a little damp when we... More

We stayed here in the end of March 2014 for 2 days. Very nice secluded place. They have good food available. We took a Garden View cottage. Reasonably priced with all basic amenities and a nice porch. Would surely recommend this place as this is near to the river crossing located near the Virupaksha temple.

This is a very average guest house, if you are an indian be ready to get biased! when we checked in we found the tap not working, lights not working and then we were given a different room after 2 hours. The situation was same even in the other room with hot shower not working. The rooms were ordinarily maintained.... More

Shanti guesthouse is a decent place to stay but it is expensive compared to other guest houses in this area. Look for some other guest house in Virupauper Gaddi area as facilities are more or less same at all places. Also food is not good here.

We hunted it on the net and we were delighted by our choice when we arrived and stayed. It was exactly as it was describes on the web and we were ushered in perfectly as we expected. We ended up staying for 05 nights... Hampi needs that much of time to seep in. Shanthi has the thatched rood cottages, basic... More

Stayed here with a friend, we were in room 35, which overlooks the paddy fields. When we weren't in hampi exploring the ruins, we were relaxing on the swing outside our room, admiring the beautiful view! This is the perfect place to just lie and do nothing, with the wind in your hair. We went in June which is off... More

Average rooms for far too much money! Food is basic and overpriced as well. The staff is unhelpful and very rude and will use any excuse to try and squeeze as much money out of you as possible. Hampi has much nicer places for less money to offer!!!

We stayed in room 38 at the end of the row, The room was clean and comfortable, bathroom was big! The manager was a little ride but not sure if that was due to his English skills or not. The pizza we are here was good. I would suggest bringing your insect repellant as you will need it inside the... More

Hampi has many choices, but this is still the best. I was here in January with my family (two kids 8 and 6 y.o.) and in may i stayed here with a group of 12 people. This is the best position in Hampi: ask for paddy fields view bungalows. Food is good and tasty. There are only 3 persons that... More

Comfortable cottages located across the river from Hampi (in Virupaper Gaddi). Bedrooms are spacious and beds are fitted with a mosquito net and a strong overhead fan, which does a good job of keeping you cool at night. All rooms also have a small patio with a seating area and swinging bed, which is great for relaxing in the evenings.... More
