Our two night stay in the Pai Vista came on the back of staying in a horrible guest house in Hampi, so to be honest we were just glad to see a clean bed and a hot shower. If that's all you're looking for, this hotel is fine. It's in a good location, you can walk all over the city from here and you will have a nice air conditioned room to come home to at the end of the day.
But. It's not the five star hotel it says it is. The bathroom was pretty old, which wasn't a big problem because it was clean. Our big problem was with the service. The staff at the hotel were rude, unhelpful and repeatedly tried to con us out of money. We booked a trip with their "travel desk", just a taxi to take us to a nearby temple. The driver they arranged for us tried to charge us 100rs car park fees despite a large sign saying it was 20rs. Then when we returned to the hotel we were asked to pay 450rs for the trip, not the agreed 400rs. When we checked out from the hotel we paid cash, and they couldn't give me any change. All of this sounds petty, 50rs here, 20rs there, but it shows the problem with the attittude of the staff and it was really really disappointing. Also - the breakfast was very poor and they charged us 35rs for a bottle of water, even though the only other drink offered was a warm jug of pineapple juice. If you do stay here, do yourself a favour and eat breakfast out.
It's not enough to say don't stay here because it was a very conveniently based hotel and the room was nice. Just keep your expectations low.
