Overall this place is a very good option for its price – the really upscale places are all some distance away, and most B&Bs close to the ruins are nowhere close to well-equipped. I still prefer to stay in one of the guest houses near the Virupaksha Temple, but we chose the KSTDC hotel this time because we were driving and this place had ample and safe parking. It’s generally clean, it’s probably the only place in Hampi that legally sells beer (and sadly, nothing else), the museum is round the bend and the Royal Enclosure is an easy walk. The highlights are the well laid-out and manicured lawns, ample parking, helpful staff, and the sad part is that most of these government-run tourist lodges have pathetic maintenance. Some of the rooms have been recently refurnished, but even then there’s a lot of stuff that’s falling apart. We had 2 of the renovated rooms between us – the TV didn’t work in one, and the bathroom fittings had a problem in the other; the folks in the room next to ours didn’t have hot water one of the mornings, so the service staff came into our room to get a bucket of hot water! While it’s probably one of those things I’d easily shrug off, it goes to show that the place isn’t entirely professionally managed and maintenance isn’t top notch.
