“ROCK REALLY ROCKS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

This was the fifth time I have stayed at this hotel and it continues to be my favorite hotel in India. It has a wonderful ambience and the rooms are majestic. Our room was huge and had a very large balcony. The entire site looks like a garden with lush trees and multiple buildings that are separated by a short walk. There are several restaurants and we ate dinner at the ECHO restaurant. The staff is top of the line and the morning breakfast is superb. The weather was excellent during February.

This pompous hotel sits amid a very poor area next to a canal where most people bath and wash clothes. The hotel decor has nothing to do with orchids, but a real mess of roman, modern and garish trappings. Rooms are excellent and the beds very comfortable. Front desk is efficient but not very friendly. The waiting staff are a bit better but still not too informative. The food is good for dinner, the breakfast is ordinary buffet style with nothing great. Two days were enough. Hampi is worth a visit but the hotel could be skipped. A less expensive more fitting place to stay can be found.

This is the best hotel in Hospet. The rooms were clean, service was very good. My son liked the hotel very much. Spa facilities are very good and do not miss it:). Spa is very spacious and very calm and quiet. Massage rooms being the top floor are well lit . Food was wonderful. The rooms are little expensive. The rooms we got did not have a bath tub.

We arrived at the Royal Orchid hotel after a very long and tiring car journey but instead of being offered a welcome drink as had been the practice at the larger hotels, we were taken on a long and unecessary tour of the hotel and its facilities by the duty manager.

The room itself at the back of the swimming pool was comfortable although we were a little bewildered by the unfurnished terrace ( overlooking the hotel washing area!) which linked our rooms.

The bathroom itself was very small and totally impracticable. There were no bathroom furnishings whatsoever - towel rails or hooks for example.
The restaurant service was not good - there seems to have been little staff training or division of duties.The buffet food was generally poor and not replenished when required. The first evening every dish was cold and we did complain about this and it was rectified the following evening.The third night of our stay produced a buffet which was totally uninviting. The chef offered to make us a Rogan Josh which was excellent.

No money exchange is available at this hotel - we were advised to visit the hotel next door which seemed a little strange!

The hotel does not live up to the image it likes to project.

The Mango Tree restaurant is wonderful and is a must for those visiting Hampi. Try the banana and coconut pakora!

Room Tip: Behind the swimming pool area seems to offer a quieter option .

If you don't feel the need to get down and dirty by staying in Hampi, this hotel is a good alternative less that half an hour's drive from Hampi. We stayed two nights, the first after a long drive to Hospet, the second after a long day in Hampi and we were grateful for the cool spacious, clean room at the end of long days. We had a bit of a hiccup with the a/c when we arrived but the staff were there sorting it out within 10 minutes of our call to reception. Through out our stay the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was not enormous but it was clean comfortable and well equipt with plenty of hot water in the wet room. Tea and Coffee making stuff was in the room but no minibar. The restaurant on the ground floor had a buffet but we ate from the a la carte menu which had the advantage of offering some european dishes - we were curried out by this point in our trip. The wine was decent and drinkable and while we were waiting for our meal to arrive the waiters brought us little appetisers to try from the buffet at no cost. The breakfast buffet offered plenty of choice - and opportunity to stoke up before a long day. The only slight draw back was the sound of the early morning trains hooting as they travelled past - but hey everything that moves in India hoots so you might as well lie back and enjoy it.

I was really happy to arrive to this Royal Orchid in Hospet after travelling to places, like Bijapur, where hotel options are extremely limited. One gets to appreciate some basic things, like being able to sleep in a clean and healthy room, in a comfortable bed, and the like. This being said, the hotel is probably overpriced for what it offers, as the rooms aren't exceptional - they are fairly spatious and pleasant, but not really outstanding (...and even, in the case of mine, the A/C wasn't working properly: it was preset on a temperature that couldn't be changed). The hotel building is modern; it isn't really a place where you would want to spend much time. The swimming pool area doesn't look attractive as it is completely surrounded by the hotel building. There is no nice garden area; one of the hotel's restaurants has some outside seating, but it is not particularly pleasant. There is supposed to be a roof terrace, but it was closed. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. The spa, located on the top floor, is very pleasant and offers excellent service.

The hotel appears quite too grand in such a location, almost out of place. The overall theme is contemporary. The buffet restaurant offers good food. There is a lounge that we were not able to try. The good-sized conference room is located by the main atrium and noise could be heard inside - our seminar was interrupted by noisy kids and other hotel guests. There is a nice, unheated swimming pool surrounded by the buildings, unfortunately the jetted tub does not heat up and the water can be quite cold. Five of us ordered some mocktails that arrived 30 minutes later. The rooms could be in the medium rise tower, five stories high, or in the three-story building at the back of the property. We stayed at Room 609 [in the latter building] which fronts the pool and with views of rice fields at the back. It has a small balcony as well. It is quiet, nicely appointed and clean. Some members of the group who stayed at the higher building complained of noise from trains [the train station is very close by] and mosque prayers [starts at dawn]. Room cleaning was prompt but the towels were not replaced until we requested for them [the housekeeper took them away after cleanup] and took quite a while to arrive.

Overall, our stay was pleasant. The location is quite good if you're exploring the Hampi area but can be noisy depending on where your room is situated.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back in the low-rise building.
