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

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.

Stayed in Chitra Katha for only two nights in a single room. The room was very confortable and extremely clean. The hotel has a nice atmosphere, fast wifi and nice restaurant upstairs with reasonable price for a hotel standard. Tried once going to Peakcok (restaurant from the opposite side) but is extremely expensive. Not for my taste at least. The... More

It's a nice place, professional staff, we paid 1200 INR/night for a double with AC, they gave us room 102 which was nice and roomy, the only issue (possibly with all 10X rooms) is the restaurant is right above, metal grinding on tile comes screeching through the ceiling as people get up and sit down for their meals which during...

How we wish that you should have received the best of us. I guess, you did! But some stuff like the toast on the second day and the iron chairs messed it up for you. No hard feelings. We have taken it in the right spirit. We are delighted that you liked the rooms, the decor, the staff and the... More

We were a couple from Canada. My wife and I stayed at this place for 4 nights. Place was little dusty and rooms were poorly cleaned. The cleaner left the towels from previous guest's stay which was very yucky. The guy at the front desk arranged taxi for us to Pushkar and Ajmer. This is where we had real challenges.... More

Once in while we do have to face this. 'The collateral damage' that happens when you keep rules and norms flexible. Frankly speaking, we do allow budget travellers to party in the balcony (some times), when we realize they cannot afford the food from our restaurant. And in past we have received rave reviews and heartfelt thanks for doing so.... More
