We stayed at Hotel Malligi around Christmas 2012 and made it our base for exploring Hampi. It looks like the hotel has been renovated recently, and the rooms were well-equipped. We lucked out and got a suite (though we'd reserved only a regular double room) and that made our stay even better.
The service is prompt and the hotel staff is unfailingly courteous and thoughtful. The breakfast spread was good, but there was no variety day-to-day and it can get a bit boring after the 2nd day.
The attached restaurants are good too. We ate in the restaurant, and ordered room service. While the food isn't anything fancy, it was good and inexpensive. It's a great value for money place, especially compared to other tourist spots where the same price will buy you pretty average amenities. It's well-located too, with easy access to Hampi by car. The travel desk was quite helpful in getting us set up with a travel guide and recommending places close by.
Our only grouse was with the hot water/shower. The water was never hot enough for winter (any time of day) and the shower pressure was poor. There was a huge political event in the banquet area while we were there, and the parking was inadequate and disorganized on that day. But overall, we'd recommend this place wholeheartedly.
