I stayed here only a couple of nights, but it was an overall very pleasant experience. I booked a single room, which was on a smaller side, but it had a private bathroom and wifi in the room. Rocky - the front desk guy, was an absolute star. He helped me with every single request I had and was absolutely... More

You know when a solo traveller is send us a review like that, we feel like celebrating Christmas all over again!!! We have tried to design the place in a manner that budget travellers find it comfortable, enriching and value for their money. A solo traveller's review is as good as lithium test results in our industry. And if he/... More

We stayed in this guest house for two nights. We checked in afternoon for two rooms. I had asked for side-by-side rooms but got on different floor which was the only sad part. Apart from that, one rooms were clean, spacious, with beautiful wall paintings and corridor with beautiful view of the fort.The washroom was hugh and clean with curtain... More

Thank you so much for sending us your valuable feedback. It is great to know that you liked the food, ambience, cleanliness and room service. As far as the room size is concerned, please note that it is a budget oasis and hence the room that is meant for 2 is meant for 2 people only. Stuffing 3 inside it... More

This is a nice budget place. Considering that, one should not expect any sort of luxuries. It is cheap and works. However, better internet (works really bad) and investing in heaters during winter months would have made the experience sooo much nicer. Friendly staff.

Glad you liked it and thank you for taking out time to send us this review. Just that we are in Jaipur and not Jodhpur. :) I guess you were travelling in this part of the World for the first time and hence got confused. It's ok. We wish you all the best and hope to see you and your... More

Chitra Katha is in a Jaipur neighborhood of boutique hotels and guest house where Pearl Palace sets the facility standard at a 1/3 higher rate. Chitra has a better Fort View and with this being a return trip Chitra was the choice this round for 6 days. There were some lost emails on the reservation but solved quickly. Except for... More

We will be rolling in our beds for quite some time after this review. Firstly, because it is an outstanding review. This is really what we dream about. But more so, because it adds so much of positive pressure on us to excel each time a guest arrives. And to deliver the same standards of service that you received. The... More

Stayed from 26-28 Dec 2014 with my family. Very small room but good location. Hardly any space to stand. Front desk manager misguided while we asked for sightseeing. Food quality was good. Staffs were quite helpful.

I enjoyed my stay at Chitra Katha Hotel. It wasn't anything special, but I spent a comfortable night there. My room didn't have any outward-facing windows and the corridors/stairs outside were a little noisy at times, but not overnight. The bathroom was quite small. But for the price, it was good value. It was about a 15-minute auto ride into... More

This was an incredible hotel: extremely clean, rooftop restaurant and delicious and open late, the linens has clearly been just washed and smelled like detergent (difficult to find in mid-range hotels here). I would stay here again if I am ever in Jaipur. When our train was ten hours late they arranged a taxi to Alwar for us. Excellent hotel,... More

After replying to so many reviews we can say this with some confidence, that we do get to know if the review is really coming from the heart or it was written to oblige a staff member or if it is just to get over with the formalities. Well, this one is for real. The point is not, that the... More

This is a budget hotel near to MI road in Jaipur. The hotel offers rooms at very reasonable price (in range Rs 1000-1200). The rooms are basic and small,but clean. We got two rooms on first floor (101, 102). The towels in bathroom were clean. Geyser was functional, toiletries were provided. Led tv had good selection of channels. A lot... More

That is one comprehensive feedback. Very rarely we find a review which is able to capture every feature that we have designed for you. Mostly guests comment only on services that they get to interact with. In this scenario it is truly a rare review, even though it missed out on talking about our restaurant and the breathtaking view.

We got a really clean and tidy room for 500 rps, just because the bathroom was across the corridor (but still private). There are also other rooms at very reasonable price. The restaurant was good but a bit expensive. We recommend this clean and well managed hotel.
