Rocky is a gentleman, scholar, and champion of the highest order. From arranging an auto with name-placard reception at the train station (thank you for taking us around, Shiva!), to arranging a guide for a day-tour of Hampi (thank you for the guided tour, Viresh!), to arranging a taxi to Palolem, and everything else in between... Rocky is one of...

Four of us rode our motorcycles into Hampi in the dark of night and easily arrived at Rocky's Guesthouse (via GPS). We loved our night there. Rocky was there, he was holding our rooms despite late arrival. He's genuine, sincere, kind, soft-spoken, helpful. He confirmed our online booking, wrote to assure me the bikes would be OK and that he'd...

The stay was comfortable. The room and sheets were clean. We took a non-AC room, which was not a good idea because of the heat in Hampi. I would advise you to take an AC room - anytime other than winter. The price is affordable. There are lot of good eating places and shopping around. There is one restaurant right...

The amount of reviewers who write what a friendly place Rocky's is, is testament in itself. You are made to feel very welcome in a relaxing homely atmosphere. Rocky , his dad and staff will do anything they can to make your stay perfect. Rocky's is in the middle of the Bazaar and conveniently across from the Gopi Restaurant which...

The place is in a good location, close to the main temple, river, shops and restaurants. And the owner, Rocky, is very helpful. Hampi has so much to do and if you're looking for decent accommodation at a decent price then book at Rocy's.

Wow - few words can be reserved for the kindness and hosting of Rocky and his father. We were two English girls caught in the Indian financial crisis and Rocky couldn't have done more to help us out and ensure our trip to Hampi was as enjoyable as possible. To add to this the guesthouse is spotless - it is...

I spent three nights at Rocky's guesthouse and was super pleased with my choice of accommodation. First and foremost, Rocky and his family are great. From the moment I arrived, I felt super welcome in their household and by the time I left, I was sad to leave. Rocky speaks great English and always made sure that I had what...

Rocky guesthouse is a nice and clean place. The perfect choice to feel like family in Hampi! We booked for one night only, and we stayed there for four nights, completely at ease. You can choose between rooms with or without attached bathroom, we tried both options and we were very satisfied. What makes the place special is the absolute...

Rocky Guesthouse is really a great place to stay. Good spacious clean room, with ac and fan. Good breakfast. Rocky is a good host who arranged everything for us, (riksja, a car to visit other places) at reasonable prices. Location is perfect, in the middle of Hampi surrounded by lot of restaurants and of walking distance to some temples. Had...

Without trying any other place in this range in Hampi I dare to day this was one of the best places to stay. If you are into resorts and luxury Hampi probably isn't for you. Rocky offers comfort through warm water and AC and offers helpful tips on how to use your time wisely. I would definitely go back!!

Hi, my name is Rocky and i look after the Rocky guesthouse, Hampi which is situated next to Hampi bazar and a 50mtr away from tungabhadra river. We got a well furnished and clean rooms that are situated in the 1st floor, with a nice temple view from the roof top and also the river view.
