Hotel Kala Sai
Ranked #70 of 85 Hotels in Shirdi
Reviewed April 13, 2012

After reading many reviews, I reluctantly booked it only because of its proximity to the temple and because of the rates (700 bucks for a night, Jan 2012). But i was pleasantly surprised when I checked into the hotel - it was really clean and up to the standards. And since the temple was only walking distance, I really dint mind coming back to the hotels between my aarti darshans.

They do have a room service, but I did not try it. Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) is in the same complex as the hotel and that is an added advantages. There are also 2 ATMs in the same complex as the hotel. Only negative thing they increase their rates arbitrarily during long weekends.

Room Tip: no tips, almost all rooms are the same !!

I happened to stay at this hotel for a night during my recent visit to Shirdi in Dec 2011. I had gone through some of the other reviews on this site and hence did not have any great expectations. However the service levels were really really bad even then. The TV did not work, they promised a triple room but ended up giving a double room with extra bed instead at the same rate, there were empty liquor bottles in the bathroom, no drinking water, no towels just to name a few. And please do not go by the rates that they have mentioned in their website. The rates are nearly 25% off from what they actually charge you there.

The best part of this hotel is its close proximity to the temple. The hotel ambience is also good and cozy. The room service is not that great - but who cares when you are there just for a night stop. The condition of room and restrooms are good for the price that you pay per night. There are a lot of food options and there is a woodlands restaurant just opposite to this hotel, so thats a boon. All in all, i would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay there for a shorter trip of a night and 2 days.

We travelled as a couple to shirdi on the long weekend of 14-15th Aug 11.Had booked the htl through clear trip at a very cheap rate.We reached@4:30am.took Sai Darshan, had breakfast,awaited at the lobby till 11:45am(12noon std check in time was not a problem as the bus stopped at Neeta Int. which has row bathrooms so that one can just have a bath@Rs.50~per person)& then finally checked into the hotel.Yes,Kala Sai has a really amazing visual appeal to it,thanks to its branded exterior outlets.The temple is just 2mins away.The room we were alloted had 2twin beds but were imediately joined on request.Bathrooms were clean & linens were OK.Towels were stinky but thank God we had carried a pair of clean towels with us.The reception was OK,neither rude nor polite.Having no restuarant was a real drawback.We had lunch at a local resto(maharashtrian thali is the best option) & then went on to visit Shani Shingnapur(2hrs drive-one way).We also wanted to visit The Waterpark but it was closed being a Sunday.We stayed for 1night & it was comfortable.I would not recommened it for a longer stay.Hotel has some 11am time for Hot Tap Water Supply.For those travelling with children should opt for a suite or higher category room as the base category is just enough to fit in 2adults.Overall we had a good & memorable time at Shirdi.

Room Tip: Its better to pre-book the hotel online or local agent as the rates offered are much cheaper.Also ha...

The checkin process was very unpleasant.We had made the booking through Make My Trip but the receptionist was not ready to allot the room.He finally allotted us the room after a delay of 15 mins.
The 1st room that was given to us did not have working lights.
Then the 2nd room alloted to us was ok but not very clean.We stayed back at the hotel as we were very tired & had to leave for Mumbai early morning

We checked in to this hotel at around 0100 hrs as we had overshot our timeline by visiting another shrine nearby. The check-in was uneventful and we ended up in the room. The room was clean, and spacious. The property does not have a restaurant expect for a Cafe Coffee Day if thats of any comfort. The hotel claims to have hot water running 24hrs but we didnt manage to get continuous hot water at night nor in the morning before check-out. We could only get hot water intermittently. Guess its some problem with their piping.

We wanted to extend our stay and were refused the rates at which we had booked online. They only accepted the rack rate which was almost twice what i had paid online. Also they didn't accept plastic money which was quite cumbersome. Please remember that no hotels in Shirdi accept plastic money.

Overall nice place, but the staff really need to improve in terms of being helpful to guests.

Room Tip: Please take the A.C rooms only as you are bang on the highway.

Booked through Make My trip.But the person at the reception was not very happy that we had made the booking through the Make My trip portal.
Took a very long time to allocate the room.
The allocated room did not a working tube light & phone.
They utimately gave us a room with 2 single beds which were joined together.

The bedsheets were also not very clean.

In all a very bad experience.
