“Nice Place to Stay if Visiting Hampi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

This hotel was a bit of a find. I have been to Hospet-Hampi before and had stayed in a different hotel in Hospet. This time there was a larger group and we required larger rooms to accommodate three adults each.

Our rooms at Malligi were nice and well lit. Their restaurant is also capable of serving nice Indian food. We did not try other cuisine though most of the foreigners there seemed happy with it.

Overall a nice choice for the price they charge. Worth staying here.

Room Tip: Rooms that face inwards that is, towards the inner courtyard are less noisy and have the nice view o...

We were three girls travelling to Hampi and booked a Superior room with Hotel Malligi. The room was very spacious and clean. There were kettle to prepare tea/coffee, cupboard, additional sofa with table, big mirror, files with paper, almost everything you can find in a 5 star hotel. The bathroom was very spacious, well equipped with hair dryer, shampoo, towels and soaps. They arranged an extra cot with bed for triple occupancy and the room was spacious in spite of a third bed being put there. The front desk people were very helpful. Complimentary breakfast had almost same menu both days. The travel desk arranged cars for sight seeing and it worked well. The room was a good bet for the price we paid. We vacated the room early morning and were given a room to freshen up for an hour in the evening before we board our train. The hotel definitely know what hospitality is and I will go back to it again. Loved it.

Room Tip: Superior room is very spacious and nice

This hotel really was like water in midst of a desert. For the area which it in, the hotel is entirely good. First of all nice lobby, good staff to greet you very happy. Then is the quadrangle in between which is green with water fountain. Rooms are neat and clean with good facilities and also the bathroom. Nice service from the staff, ready to help you always and do not miss the complementary buffet breakfast here. The hotel also has a pool. The travel desk in the hotel Hamsa travels is good, their price is moderate with good vehicles. Overall good hotel, i surely want to go back to this hotel. Highly recommended for all types family, friends etc..

We stayed in February while visiting Hampi. The hotel arranged for us sightseeing trip to hampi with a driver at a reasonable price. Hotel is clean. Rooms are big and comfy. We stayed in the deluxe room. The swimming pool could be little bit cleaner. Breakfast included wete tasty with big choice of food. We dined in the blue mist restaurant that offers very tasty south indian dishes at very reasonable price. I would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Hampi.

We were initially apprehensive about staying in a village to see Hampi, so we looked into staying in Hospet. We made a reservation at Hotel Malligi for two nights, but checked out after one night. We learned that staying is Hospet is not worth it when you get better quality rooms in Hampi for less than half the price. Hotel Malligi invested a lot of money on its exteriors and grounds when they should instead focus on improving the quality of their rooms. The bathroom had an old sewer stench and was not well maintained, but there was a working hot shower. The bed was not comfortable and the door was flimsy. The breakfast buffet was not great and did not seem hygienic, but the dinner was fine. They had free wifi, but no one at their front desk knew how to access it. The location is good for being in Hospet as the bus stop is just up the block or you can get an auto for Rs. 100-150.

Dear Guest, We thank you for choosing Malligi during your recent visit to Hospet. We regret that your experience with Malligi was not to your satisfaction Sincere apologies for the same.

The uniqueness of Malligi is in its ability to cater to a guest irrespective of their budget. Athiti Devo Bhava in its true sense. So the budget rooms may not match up to the majority of the luxury rooms that hotel has. But Guests always has a choice.

We look forward to having the opportunity to host you in the near future to allow you to experience our commitment to quality and service.

Thank you once again from all our dedicated team. (Sundeep) stay@malligihotels.com

Hotel Malligi at Hospet, Karnataka is an ideal place to stay while visiting Hampi or even passing through. Though it is located in a somewhat crowded area of the city, once inside the property you are in a totally different world. The decor and ambience is most well thought of and attractive. The rooms, cleanliness and house keeping is probably better than some 5 star hotels. They have three/four restaurant options, including one pure veg one. The check-in/check-out process is most professional and swift. Overall a very well managed property. My compliments to the Management and staff.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor are better.

This is a very good hotel in very small town in Karnataka , India called Hospet which is about 12 km from world famous Hampi. This is a big hotel with many rooms at good price and good breakfast. Rooms are spacious, with free WIFI, TV, hot water etc. Good staff and good sleep quality also.Good food in two restaurants with a different ambiance.

Room Tip: stay away from main road rooms.
