After the disaster at the Shashinag, we moved here for 2 nights with half the room rate we paid at the former.
Really friendly staff and nice big rooms with great view from gallery of the Gol Gombaz. OK so some of the taps did not work in the bathroom, but this is Bijapur, not Bangalore.
I loved sitting on the big gallery in the morning and evening either reading or just watching everything going on below. Although there was no alcohol for sale at hotel, I had no problem getting a cool bottle of Kingfisher from one of the staff served to me on the balcony
