Hotel opal has been there for more than 3 decades now. Very famous for non vegetarian traditional kolhapuri food. I am a vegetarian. I enjoy the veg thali the most. Try the veg- Pandhra rasssa. Fast quick service, and hot food.

Stayed second time here with family. Stay was pleasant. We had lunch there at the restaurant, enjoyed veg thali very much. Only problem is because of rush, sometimes there's long waiting at the restaurant. Complimentary breakfast was good too, multiple options are there. Overall good option for stay & food, would have given another star if the place wasn't this... More

This is a good hotel no doubt which claims to be around from the 60s but few suggestions to the management/staff. 1. There was some very foul smell in the staircase which go up to the rooms, please try to remove that. 2. All rooms should have a working night lamp. 3. Gas geysers are not considered safe and should... More

Being the landmark restaurant for the world famous Kolhapuri Tambda & Pandhra rassa this has been our place of meal halt enroute to Goa. The place also provides budget accomodation which meets bare necessities @ Rs 1200-1400. The food has been the hallmark here and i must say it's still one of the better ones as far as Kolhapuri cuisine... More

We have stayed couple of times in this hotel with family. They are building new premises just in front of the old place. Rooms are OK. Food: This hotel is famous for their non veg food though veg food is also good. Breakfast: Variety of items are available & taste is good. Overall: Nice for all kind of short trips.

I visited this place for the second time in Dec 2015. Last time (2013) the hotel complex had a nice front yard, with trees and green patches. However, this time the front yard was all but gone...and there stood an under construction commercial building (Maruti showroom?). While I understand that the owners want to make money out of the large... More
