Hampi has a few luxury hotel options. There are very limited options available close to the ruins side.
Though most of them are located at some distance from the ruins site, it's quite practical to go for day excursion to the ruins from these luxury resorts and star rated hotels close to Hampi.
Those who are driving (taking you car), be aware of the circuitous route to reach the other side of the river (opposite side of Hampi). If you are selecting one of those hotels on the other side of (Hampi village) the river, be aware that there are no bridges anywhere near to cross. Plan your driving routes accordingly. However for visiting Hampi ruins site, there are many ferry points with coracle service, if you are willing to leave the car behind!

Anegondi was the capital of the region, before it was moved to Hampi. In fact this was the core of a tiny kingdom that eventually expanded into the Vijayanagar Empire covering the whole of south India. Currently Anegondi is sleepy village with a principally farming community inhibiting it.
Navabrindavan, near Hampi, is of importance to the followers of the saint Sri Raghavendra. The Brindavan (sacred tomb) of the saint is located in a small island formed by Tungabadra , a bit east of the Anegondi village.
This place is highly sought after by the pilgrims and is treated with reverence.
