Overall not a great experience. Despite the owners mother being nice (she owns the shop right across the road) the experience wasn't great. A few things that weren't good: 1. Booked a driver to the airport early morning they got us to pre-pay. He didn't arrive. We had to find the mother of the hotel owner who called people until...

I 've only written one other review as a warning. This is another! The rooms don't look anything like they do in the Lonely Planet picture and that beautiful garden in the background is a collection of broken furniture and motorcycles.(maybe this is the parking mentioned). The family are friendly enough alright but right from the initial interaction the whole...

From the moment we arrived the owner and his wife did everything in their power to help make our stay as carefree and pleasant as possible. They have useful links with a local travel agent who was also extremely helpful and sorted out a lot of train journeys on our trip. The room was clean and quite small but had...

The room was clean, especially the bathroom. The property location was also good. Restaurant's food was not that great, I had ordered for a masala Dosa as I thought that Dosa being a part of the local staple diet would be good, but it wasnt that great. The best part was that the service was good and helpful.

The stay at Archana guest house was good. For that price, its a pretty decent one. The ac in the room was okay... It doesn't get cooled immediately... But does the job in sometime. The food is not great.. Full of oil and not soo tasty... But manageable. The staff was helpful... There is no river view from the room......

Got shout at by the manager and he made a huge scene about one of his old dirty plastic chairs, claiming I had to pay 500 rupees for an old crack in it for putting down the backpack "too hard" on it. Internet is not working in the rooms, shared dirty bathroom w/o sink. Pic: manager standing at the top...

Nice rooms.. Good food, the owner "ravi" is a huge hustler so pay attention. But the room was nice & view was nice. So a good place to stay. The staff is a bit pushy and don't really seem to want you there. But if you can manage to stay positive and not be bothered by the hustling natives that...

My favourite place to stay in Hampi! The room was good, the AC worked, its perfectly located in the middle of Hampi, and the view when you chillout in front of the Guesthouse is beautiful. Also there is a restaurant on the top, which serves a tasty breakfast. Just the wifi is poor... But its everywhere the same in Hampi...

We had booked this on Booking.com. The room was described as having a tv with cable and a balcony with a river view, and at Rs 2500 was very expensive; we were expecting a mid - range hotel. We were shocked when we saw the room. It was so small there was barely room for 2 beds and a tiny...
