Where to stay in Kolhapur

Not yet on the international tourist map, Kolhapur still has plenty of accommodations, with thousands of pilgrims arriving here each year. Look close to the train station for some of the most conveniently located options, offering good access to the main sights of the old town to the west. East of the station, either side of Station Road, sit the luxury hotels, making use of the increase in space with additional facilities. The old town itself has a number of smaller side-street hotels and guesthouses, ideal for budget-conscious travelers who want to stay in the thick of things.
