We stayed at Shanthi for eight days, and it was a delight. This guest house has fantastic views from the higher priced huts, which if you can afford is a real treat. We stayed in hut 19, situated back in the garden area without the views, but was perfectly fine. The circular huts are large and comfortable, with mosquito nets...

We stayed at Shanthi Guest House on 25th November 2013 for one night. Our family of four had two rooms (Room No 33 and 34). Stay was comfortable, food was good and service cordial. Rooms have basic amenities but at a place like Hampi you do not require anything more, since the main attraction is the Hampi site. Moreover, since...

We (my daughter, wife and myself) were there at Shanthi for 4 days and 3 nights during the Diwali weekend. Location-wise, the resort/guest house may be disappointing if one's expecting a star hotel kind of treatment. The location, Virupapur gaddi, is bit hard to find. You can rely on maps. Better to rely on directions given by locals or hotel...

Perfect gateway for the weekend. Located on the banks of thungabadra, midst lush paddy fields, away from all the bustling city life. This is a place i would surely visit again. Reached here by 12 pm, but the owner was kind enough to still prepare dinner for us. Room were thatched huts with all basic amenities. Beds had mosquito nets,...

Following on a friend' recommendation we decided to tour Hampi & stay at shanthi guest house. The resort is quite basic, as the prices indicate but if you compare the value for money, yummy food they serve this comes out as probably one of the best resorts in Hampi. The kitchen staff & cook are all from Himachal during the...

The best part first: This is an extremely peaceful place. Everything adds up to it: the thatched cottages, the serene paddy fields, the bird calls you wake up to in the morning, the restaurant with relaxed on-the-floor sitting, the quick service and helpful manager Mr. Thakur. And the best place to enjoy all this serenity is from the swing bed...

I spent 5 nights here and it was just divine. The cottages are very basic (I had a very good tariff so no complaints there at all), a little run down (beds a little hard but you get used to it) but sitting on your swinging daybed overlooking the rice paddies, river and landscape of boulder's watching the amazing sunset...

Place is very nice to relax and hang around. The rooms are run down, some of the cottages are smelly, mattress was like a wooden bord. You get better rooms in a guesthouse in hampi for same price. The food was very disapointing, one of the worst thalis I had in India.

This hotel really suprises you for its price. The cottages look very nice and their dining area is a great place to chill out. The guest house is right next to the paddy fields and river and the owner (dont remember his name) is very friendly.

Shanthi guesthouse surprised us in many ways. It is not really a resort, but more of a farm house kind of set up. It is probably the best of the lot in Sanapur (across the river from Hampi). The hotel staff was very courteous, and helpful. Service was prompt. Food quality excellent. Manager Thakur is detail oriented, resourceful and a...
