“Must stay here if you are visiting Hampi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Based on the earlier reviews I was a little suspicious about staying here....but the hotel dismissed all the complaints with their ever smiling service... The rooms are large and clean.... we had a little problem with the bathroom, but was fixed quickly... The rooms are situated away from the lobby and one needs to climb a floor or two, depending which floor the room is.... This may be a problem for older people. Otherwise, the bell boys take care of carrying the luggage.... For anyone visiting Hampi, he/she should be prepared to walk/climb w/o which one can never experience and explore Hampi.... The best part about the hotel is their restaurant, the food is excellent and the service can't get any better.... the ever smiling restaurant staff deserve a special mention.... Keep it up.... The breakfast spread is very nice, Idli, Dosa, Vada, Parathas and the usual continental stuff.... there is non-veg stuff as well... i used the pool and it was real clean and big.... overall I am extremely satisfied and will recommend the hotel to all my friends n relatives....

Room Tip: For older people, to avoid climbing, please request a room in the ground floor well in advance.

The royal orchid kireeti is a very good place to stay if visiting Hampi and around. Although there's literally no other half decent hotel around.
Still despite no real competition, the hotel really stood out. The rooms are pretty big, clean, comfortable and in general really good.
The pool.... is surprisingly good.
The restaurant doesn't do a half-bad job either. The staff was extremely helpful and in general good.

The drive to Hampi is just 12 km from the hotel and unline Hampi, Hospet has easy access to the nearest rail-head(for those travelling that way). I had driven down and they've got ample parking.

Highly recommended. Hsopet isnt much of a town, and this place is a mini-oasis.

I stayed in the hotel for one night on 31st May, 2014. Hospet being a small town does not have many options for one to stay. This is one of the better hotels there.
We got the rooms at a decent price. rooms are also well put together. The hotel is also well situated for travelers heading to Hampi.
The hotel has a good swimming pool, the only problem is that regular pool dept is 5 feet. So unless you are well versed in swimming or very tall, it is difficult to enjoy the pool. Then the only option for you is the child pool which is 2.5 ft.
The only problem that I found with the hotel is the food prices. Food is extremely expensive and the quality of the food really can not command that kind of price. Mind it, the food is not bad. It is pretty decent but the pricing matches probably star hotels in Bangalore.
Anyway, all in all a pleasant experience.

I had earlier stayed at this property in February during my trip to Hampi and again for a night while returning from my trip to South India. A good property, though this time to save costs they had clsed down their main building to save on AC costs and were giving accomodation in their cottages type accomodation a litle away from main building. Though not an issue but this thing should be mentioned on their website while booking rooms as we could not get a king bed in their cottage acco. Sleeping with a 5 yr old on twin beds is certainly diffcult.
Restaurant as usual is excellent and serves out good tasteful dishes. we were extremely satisfied with both dinner and breakfast. Service was prompt and courteous.

As observed by you our Hotel has two parts, the Main building was under AC preventive maintenance hence it was kept switched off for a month.

My husband and I, decided to take a 4 day break to go to Hampi with our mothers. After alot of research and thinking we decided to go with Royal Orchid Kireeti in Hospet. We were travelling with 2 senior citizens and hence required a place where service would be really good and ofcourse the pricing had to be affordable and attractive! The first good thing we noticed when we reached Royal Orchid Kireeti in Hospet was the warmth, personal touch and fantastic hospitality right from the General Manager Mr. Sanjay Jha to the lady at the reception Himadri who took care of my mother-in-law when she was feeling unwell while we were out of the hotel, and not to forget Ayush, the waiter at the restaurant, who provided proactive & outstanding service! However, the same cannot be said about the F&B Manager, most of the waiters and employees at the reception. Our door key used to not work 90% of the time, and inspite of informing the reception multiple times, they chose to change the card vs looking to see if the lock itself required a change. We had to walk multiple times to the reception (which was quite a long walk) to get the issue resolved. Intercoms on the pathway at some points would save the trouble of walking multiple times when you cannot enter your room. On the last day, of our stay inspite of informing multiple times about sending someone to take our luggage from the room to the car, they did not act accordingly. Finally they sent someone after 3 phone calls made by me to the reception and that man came without a cart! We were getting late thanks to the hotel's reception employees - my husband was at the reception settling the bill hence I had to just pick up 2 suitcases and walk to the car with 2 other bags. This was quite a nasty way to end a relaxing holiday. The people at the reception, saw me doing that but never bothered to come and help. So, I guess that's their definition of providing excellent service! In the rooms, the floor mats are quite dirty and are not changed, the base bed mattress also looked dirty. Coming to our eating experience - One would expect top notch experience in a star hotel like Orchid...but...owing to the off season and managing Operational Costs at a minimal level, they decided not to switch on the AC in the dining area...atleast that's what we were told by one of the waiters!! As a result, there were flies on our food. Interestingly, the GM one morning noticed the same, while having breakfast with us, but guess what, nothing was done about it as we noticed flies next day at lunch too! We had ordered some club sandwhich for lunch one day and it tasted good..typically any club sandwhich wherever we've eaten, has been served with 4 triangles of the same. But guess what, the next day we got 2 pieces of club sandwhich when we ordered the same thing and inspite of giving feedback, we got the same 2 pieces the following day too!! This was a classical case of "not being able to work on the feedback"...The feedback was given to no lesser than the F & B Manager and the second in command chef. But I guess they never bothered to action the same. One day in the afternoon we ordered some cut mango, and the waiter got slices of mango without removing the skin. I guess the waiters there except for one or 2 do not have the ability to comprehend what the customer is asking for. Overall, the interaction with the employees at the reception, and the service given by the F & B Manager and his team has been very disappointing. One would expect a manager to be proactive and efficient enough to handle customer issues effectively. It was just the opposite. I was getting more and more upset as this guy was speaking asif he had no clue how to manage the situation. Rest, of the stay was nice and so was the pool and the historical treasure at Hampi.

Room Tip: Room 607 was spacious and had a good view and a balcony. It was interconnected to 2 other rooms. Hen...
