As I was planning our trip to Shirdi, I checked the internet for suitable hotels for stay. After checking the excellent ratings on, I zeroed in on Hotel Sai Moreshwar. I found their website and realised that they also had branches at Lonavla and Pune. After finding contact numbers, I called one to find that it was a Mumbai number.

The reception at the hotel
Ms. Vanitha answered the phone and told me that rooms were available and I could book a double non-AC room for Rs. 1526 per day including taxes. After consulting Venkat, I booked a room for two days. I also called the other local number to check about the availability of room service, a restaurant, hot water, etc. They even have a free wi-fi connection for guests that could be used in the reception.

Our room
We walked from the bus stand to Hotel Sai Moreshwar that was just a couple of minutes away and booked in. We were lucky to get the rates that we did as walk-in guests usually pay Rs. 1700 + taxes for the same room. I went to check the rooms – they have regular and deluxe, which is with a balcony. All the rooms have air-conditioners and we could use one of them without using the AC there as the weather was quite pleasant.

The room we booked into – No. 302 – was very comfortable and quite big. The bathroom was also large and the best was the availability of hot water round the clock.

I have to mention that the service was excellent. They provided us with fluffy towels on both days, cleaned up the room very well and room service was very prompt.

The food was not too bad
The food at their in-house Restaurant Sai Maurya was good, not great. We had only a couple of meals there.

When we planned a trip to Shani Shingnapur, the hotel manager had the AC car booked for us at a reasonable rate.

All in all, we totally enjoyed the stay at Hotel Sai Moreshwar that is located barely a few minutes from Shirdi Temple.

  1. Shirdi is the holly place of Saibaba and people visit Shirdi a lot, last week i went to Shirdi it is really very nice place, actually whenever we plan to go out first we think of our stay and travel so for this i always prefer to book shirdi hotels online booking and my tickets too.

  2. Hotels are a very important part of a trip because people go and stay there most of the times.Well at the moment thinking of fort lauderdale shuttle bus is reasonable because of taking it ahead that helps it all in a manner.

  3. Nice and interesting information and informative too.
    Can you please let me know the good attraction places we can visit: Air ticket
