Hospet hotels and hostels
Only the expensive rooms here, some with a vague contemporary look, are worth it. A couple of decent restaurants, a pool (Rs35 for nonguests and guests in the cheapest rooms) and a gym are on site.
Handily located between the bus and train stations, the fresh rooms here have balconies and TV. The outdoor nonveg restaurant-bar Manasa (mains Rs60 to Rs120) has a good menu.
Vijayshree Resort And Heritage Village
Gowri Guest House
Sri Lakshmi Golden Beach Resorts
A welcome change from Hampi’s basic sleeping options, this resort-style place amid paddy fields has a range of cosy cottages. The pool, sadly, won’t be in commission until early 2010.
