We and a couple of our friends were reaching Hampi on Sat morning. I called up Padma Guest House on Fri eve and spoke to Sagar who promptly confirmed our bookings and made pick-up arrangements from the railway station. They also helped setup conveyance for us to go around. During the course of the next two days we enjoyed great hospitality and thanks to its location, an awesome view of the Virupaksha Temple especially during the night when it was lit up in preparation for the upcoming inauguration. It's a good place to stay for an affordable getaway.
