Hospet is a city in central Karnataka, a transport hub located at a distance of 15 km. from Hampi . It makes sense to stay in Hospet only if you want to live in relatively comfortable conditions - there are several large hotels - and go to Hampi for an excursion or if you decide to go from Hampi to some of the cities of Karnataka. Hospet is quite a big but uncomfortable city. Hospet has several old temples along the road leading to Hampi.
