This hotel looks imposing from the outside, but looks like faded glory under renovation inside, that have been stalled for some time. The room and bathroom was dirty with bedbugs in the bedcovering. Go somewhere else. Anywhere else.
Don’t go here even if they pay u to stay. Worst rooms, poor hygiene, no air conditioning, dead rats, monkeys being fed from the open kitchen which is making your breakfast. The front desk helpless and clueless. The owners bursting crackers in the lobby late in the night with no regard to people wanting to sleep. I can go on forever. Never go here
After resigning my Job, the mind was unstable and floating like a ship in the Tempest....Couldn't even pay the bills for my PG. Totally drained out of Budget.Then one day I got a Message that 21K is added to my account as F&F from the company......Woww...Trip Mode On.....I Don't have the habit of saving money for tomorrow...Just live for Today as happy as possible.On the very day Booked RE 350 via Drivezy Koramangala, Fetched the Bike.Serviced...Packed....All Set to Go...While tieing the Bags on Bike....I got a call from an old smokemate....Who is working at UST Global..He was asking me what's the plan Buddy????.....I told him..."I'm going"......He is like.."Where??"....Me: Hampi....."F**k......" He insisted me to go to his place before I go for the trip...and I agreed...Hopped on the Bike and straight to his place..Marathahalli...When I reached there...He was waiting for me downstairs..With his Bags Packed.. He told me...already applied for 2 days Leave.....Come Lets Go.... He was on his nerve. and The Journey Begins....... Same like old Days No Hotels Booked....Continuous night ride...hell lot of Black coffee and cigarettes...We reached near Tungabadhra Reservoir....around 10 AM we sat there and admired the view....it was growling like a sea ...with waves crashing on the stones...at that point we took our phone and searched for an affordable Hotel..... There I found Shanbagh International...Booked.... 12 AM was the check in time....So again almost 2 hours to spend.....We went through the Tunnel like Wolves howling(Those who went to Hampi will understand which tunnel I'm mentioning..Those who didn't you'll get to know when you visit.). And we reached Hospet around 11:30..Again we light one Cig...Had our Breakfast...and Checked in the Hotel..... While entering the Hotel we came to know about the prestigious past about the Hotel, the looks, the statues on the wall,even the Aquarium...The Hotel is same like Hampi....Living in the Mesmerizing glory of the ancient Past. Dude its Hampi.....If you are looking for 5 star Cuisine...Go to Bangkok....Not Hampi.... This is a relic...The Holy Capital of Vijayanagara Empire...This is History....This is us...and we are here to find peace and culture...not a Dancing Bar. The Reciptionist gave us greetings..Checked our booking status and told us to wait....We just roamed around the place...we have a tiffin meal centre outside..and a bar inside...What else you need....Complete happy....Be Hampi Be Happy... The Room Boy showed us the room,,The room was spacious with 2 Ashtrays..one for each.........The window showed us the ravishing streets of Hospet...The room was clean....We just freshen up and went to Bed...Since we were having a tiresome ride...The Bed was superb.......Truly speaking.....Felt like I could have come here with my GF....But never had one..... For riders like us the room and the hotel service was awesome......we even went for a night ride....with no questions asked.....I'd prefer going to the same hotel if I'm visiting Hampi again.... the complementary Breakfast is another great thing.....It was Buffet with traditional style food...I'm a good reviewer on food than a Hotel...I'll give 9 out of 10 for the breakfast Buffet. We visited almost all places..in Hampi.. The remnants of Palace...which spread as much your eyes can reach......The Stone Chariot at VijayaVitthala Temple...and the story goes on and on......If you are an admirer of art and culture like me...which ever religion you are living..I personally advice to go and see this place. May be you can see through another perspective of Who our ancestors were...…
Located just near to Bus terminal, Shanbhag tower houses restaurant as well as rooms for travellers. I had ordered idli , vada and tea over here before starting my journey for hampi. The prices are ok and food quality is good though not too excellent. Being located near to bus terminal is one of the positives for it. One point to note is that its a veg restaurant so non veg lovers may have to look for other options.
This lodge looks great from outside. But inside no facility. Bathroom is not maintained properly. Room service is okay. Fridge inside the room is almost rusted. Bed spread and pillow is not proper. Please don’t opt for this lodge if u r going with ur kid.
