Because of the laudative comments sent
Because of the laudative comments written by supposedly well seasoned travellers, I had booked for a room with AC from Goa.
I was met by the rickshaw at the station, as said ( which is a service provided by all guest houses in India).The location is right in the middle of Hampi village, like so many other homestays and guest houses.No problem for finding a place !
On arrival, i could not believe my eyes to see that my room( and others) was windowless.No balcony, no terrace and no window.What a cheek to charge an extortionate 2000Rps for a windowless room, even if it is clean !Ludicrous and unbelievable !
It is real easy to find super accommodation in Hampi at very reasonable prices.Within five minutes, I had found a a lovely bright room with a private terrace tem meters away for 750 Rps, with fan (in November, AC is not necessary).
One morning, from my terrace, could hear the row made by a couple of tourists who were as shocked as i had been for the same reason,shouting that those windowless rooms were a rip off They fled, the way I had done.
What is beyond my understanding is the raving of fellow travellers about that place !
