I stayed at this hotel for 1N in Feb 2014 with my parents and sister enroute to Ganapatipule. Had booked the room online but there was confusion initially about confirmation of the booking, however the receptionist called us and confirmed the booking. My father had visited this hotel longtime back thats 30 years ago and he had strongly recommended this... More

One of oldest hotels in Kolhapur, and I had a chance to stay here in 2014. My oversight is what I will say. The first and foremost memory that I carried back with me was the utter value for money that I got on the room rates. Compared to "luxury" hotels elsewhere, I think the prices here are pretty low...

We (me and my wife) stayed for one day at this Hotel on 25th night January 2014. It's decent Hotel with friendly staff. However one get's a sense that it is well past it's day's of glory. It's an old Hotel that needs renovation. The rooms are large and comfortable at a basic level. The corner rooms overlooking the main... More

This place is overrated for the food.. I had the special veg thali and was very disappointed. The only food items I liked in the thali was the 'pappad' and the 'onions'.. The onion pakodas served were cold and tasteless. My friend had the mutton masala and he says he liked it. I fail to understand what's there to like... More

Decent, simple and no frills. We visited Kolhapur in the month of September for an overnight trip. From word of mouth we had zeroed in on the Opal Hotel as my main intention was not to enter Kolhapur city. Opal is an old property on the outskirts of Kolhapur and has a loyal clientle. The rooms are no frills and... More

Seems Old Bungalow building from the 1960s or something I guess converted into a hotel due to the prime location, I partly agree with some of the other posts which say that the cleanliness is not really upto the mark. But at Rs 1200 per night with complimentary breakfast this is what you get.Do keep in mind that this is... More

Have been visiting this hotel since 1984 and believe me its been the best places to stay and have food in Kolhapur ever since. Though other options might offer better accommodation in Kolhapur, staying at Opal is like staying in Luxury with a strong history. A landmark in Kolhapur. Corporate preferred place to hold annual/monthly meeting here since decades. Ample... More

We stayed here for 1 night (on out way to Dandeli). Location is very convenient - off old Pune Bangalore road & in the heart of the city. Quick check-in & check-out. Rooms were spacious with balconies. Hotel being old the electrical, plumbing & furniture fittings are out dated. However rooms including toilets are clean & tidy. Unless you expect... More
