“Old is Gold”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

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 parking space. Restaurant menu is varied and the "thali" system is stomach filling experience. You have to wait to get a place to sit in the restaurant. Non-veg dishes are just marvelous particularly the 'Kolhapuri" ones.

Room Tip: Opt for rooms on the back side. Choose ones with AC as they are much better. Old colossal type rooms...

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 lot of frills in your hotel room, these rooms wont disappoint. Staff is cordial & helpful. Opal is famous for the food (local Kolhapur dishes) it serves in the attached restaurant.

Summary - Best option for a short stay in Kolhapur without pinching your pockets. Book in advance as there are limited rooms.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nites. The hotel is well known by the rickshaw guys and is conveniently located.

The rooms are just about decent with a small balcony. The balcony cud not be kept open as some construction work was going on in the next buildings.

The bathroom had both hot and cold water but after one person taking a shower the geyser would take about 30 mins to dispense hot water again.

Food is average. There are multiple options to eat out.

The staff is very cordial and helpful.

Stopped at this hotel for a night halt during a road trip. The hotel was a very good choice. the room charges were reasonable and an extra bed was provided. With the extra bed also the room was spacious. The toliets were reasonably clean. Food was very good, only the extra charges per person for room service was a bit funny.
All in all a good stay.

I stayed there on 6th July while travelling from Bangalore to Pune with my family. Hotel was clean and properly maintained. I had the famous mutton, kaleji fry, tambda and pandhra rassa whereas my wife and mother in law had veg thali. Everything was delicious. Mutton was properly cooked and tasty.Morning breakfast (Complimentary) comprising Misal pav, Sheera and Idli Sambar was also very tasty. After a long time I had the perfect Misal. Not so spicy but very tasty. I would surely like to visit again.
