“Good and comfortable”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

I stayed in this hotel when I shifted out of Hotel Malligi because of its shameful condition.

The hotel lobby is very impressive. The rooms were neat and clean and had all the necessities including some fancy touches.

I did face a bit of a problem in check-in as the hotel did not agree to some of the things that they promised during booking, including 24hour check-out facility. Anyway, the issues were sorted out quickly.

The food in the hotel is excellent. The service was crisp and it was overall a very good experience.

The hotel is located just about 200 meters from the train station of Hospet. With a rickshaw you can get to Hampi for about 100-150 Rs. in 30-45 min.

The hotel is very new and would also get 4 stars in other countries. Really nice and modern rooms, nice and surprisingly cheap food and a big pool at the back of the hotel, so everything it needs for relaxing between the exhausting train ride to Hospet and visiting Hampi for a day.

When we were at the Hotel in April we paid only 50% of the usual rates, but the hotel was also nearly empty, we were more or less the only guests.

The service is a bit bothersome, because they ask you several times a day how you like the pool, the food, the rooms, and so on and so on. But unfortunately not only that, when you really need them they are also useless:
Our hotel package included a half-day trip to Hampi. As we wanted to drive around in Hampi on scooters on our own, we agreed with the concierge that we go to Hampi on our own but they would pick us up in the evening with a car.
When we called them in the evening, they first wanted to tell me that we did not have a free pick-up, it would cost. When they finally found my booking, they told me that there is no car right now, I should have told them before that I want to be picked up. More angry I told them that this is exactly what I did talk about with the concierge, until the finally wanted to send a car with driver to pick us up.
However this took 90 minutes! for a distance not even 30 minutes. I had to call the hotel several times, they forwarded me to the driver, who did not understand English, it was a pain... If I had known in advance, we would have just taken a rickshaw again, but if the hotel always tells you that the driver will be there in a few minutes...
Of course when we returned they were very sorry, told us something about new employees and so on, but that should not be our problem. If you want to be a 4 star hotel, you should have proper service.

this is really a wonderful hotel with a comfort you don`t expect out there on the countryside in northern KARNATAKA,
e.g. cleanliness, service, room furnishings, pool, restaurant all very good and great after a long travel either when arriving or after a long day visiting the world heritage sites of Hampi,
honestly I don`t undestand some of the former a bit critical comments by some other trvellers, at least these days it simply is best to choose this hotel, it is really worth to stay and the best around there

A nice place to relax and rejuvinate.
Hope the Spa will be active the next time when we visit.
we arrived by Car and were given a welcome drink which was refreshing and was definitely needed because of the high temperature in Hospet.
The room was well organised with a welcome letter from the management.
A fruit bowl will be welcome in the room, since immediately on arrival one would not like to head for the restaurant.

Having been on "Tour" with Rustic India Tours for three weeks in Southern India and in mixed accomodation this was a pleasant rest from the "Real India". The hotel was up to inernational standards and had all the amenities you would want. The staff and the dining experience were very good and the pool was a refreshing break from the Indian April heat. Can't comment on price as it was all in a package but the two days of luxury was very enjoyable.
The location is a short walk from the bus station to catch the bus for Hampi.

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting Hampi. I found the hotel to be beautiful, cool, and quiet. The restaurant served very good buffet meals with a mix of Indian & western foods. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Hampi.

Hotspet is a small town some 320 kilometers away from Banglore. Some part of the road is terrible. I spent 7 hours to get there. I didn't expect to see a good hotel there but there is one. The Royal Orchid Central Kireeti decorated and equipped nearly as same as the Royal Orchid Resort in Banglore. Only the scale is smaller. The service & food is great It is really a surprise to see such a good hotel in a remote area ----- the same feeling as I see the Tempi World Cultural Heritage 10 kilometers away from the Hotel.
