I have stayed twice at this property in the past five years and loved the feeling of staying in a palace. Stayed in the Maharaja Suite on the first floor the first time and the Maharani Suite on the ground floor the second time. Complete Royal Treatment. Food was okay though. However, when I went to Kolhapur in February 2015...

This Hotel has rundown toilets, creaky beds, creaky furniture, creepy crawly insects, generous dose of cockroaches -- yet I havent rated it terrible...as it gave us something which we never experienced before - A HAUNTED NIGHT experience. If you are looking for a similar experience -- this is the place to be in -- dont expect any customer service, good...

We have been to Kolhapur for 01 night stay and were looking for good options. We booked two executive suites in this Hotel, considering this stay will be a heritage stay. But it was not so. Firstly the hotel was empty. There was no guest other than us. Executive suites are far away from the main reception and are located...

This is an old property which has been maintained poorly. Initially when we booked we were under the impression that it was a Welcome Heritage Property. Infact, the complementary toiletries provided in the hotel still had the logo. However, the property resembled a haunted place. Though the location is excellent (lake facing), the service was almost non-existant - mosquitoes, lizards,...

I had gone to Shalini Palace with my family around 3 years back. And I was always looking for an opportunity to visit again. So when I went to Kolhapur with a friend I immediately suggested Shalini Palace for staying. I was shocked to see that though the palace grounds and the outside building is maintained pretty well, the rooms...

Without a doubt, of all the hotels in Kolhapur Shalini Palace has the best view. It overlooks the Rankala Lake which is beautiful at any time of the day. The hotel has very large spacious rooms and considering its the only palace in Maharashtra to be converted into a hotel...its a great experience. However, there are many downsides. The rooms...
