I stayed in this hotel around one week. The room was quite small, even in a budget value, one can hardly stand in the given area as bed occupied most of the room. The hotel was clean and the restaurant service was not that bad, but yes it could be better as they took a lot of time to deliver..... More

My experience in Chitrakatha Hotel along was overall good. The Manager gave me the complete detail about the city, about various tourist places, and the routes. The services provided by the hotel staff was good and on time. I have enjoyed the place. I got good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, they have a restaurant at roof top terrace.... More

It is heartening to know that you received the honesty and transparency we wish to deliver through our process and staff. Also awesome to know that you were happy with the food, restaurant and ambience. Our only request would be to not call it cheap. Inexpensive? Yes, but certainly not cheap. Trust doesn't come for cheap. There's a lot of... More

Such short, to-the-point, precise reviews are not too many. Very rarely a gentleman arrives who is good at articulating, misses nothing and yet loves to keep it short. Thank you and God Bless. Cheers. More

I was bummed to not get a place in hotel pearl palace for Holi, so i booked a place directly across the street here. I couldnt have been happier here. I dont usually give 5 stars, but the cleanliness and comfort of this place was well worth it, especially at the 400rs/night price point. Had an awesome stay here. Stayed... More

Every year I travel to India. While 20 years come and go. This hotel is one of the best in Jaipur. Value for budget. Nice crews. Hot water. Nice taste restaurant. And also can enjoy free Wi-Fi. I like this hotel restaurant very much. Especially, tali has nice taste. Within tali,I love dal fly. It's so nice. Don't miss it!!!

We had a pleasant stay in Chitra Katha. View and sitting arrangements near corridors are good. Staff is cordial and generous. Good thing is roof top restaurant and food. Manager is cooperative and helpful. Rooms are compromising. For two people is good but no good space for extra bedding which needs to be look after.

The man at the reception is a friendly man who can help you with anything. He helped me book bus tickets, train tickets and had rickshaws organised for me. Rooms are decent and clean. The bus boys are extremely attentive and accomodating. Location is a bit far from the pink city if you're walking but the plus side is no... More

While we are happy to hear that you liked the cleanliness, ambience, food and the rooftop restaurant a lot. It is disheartening to know that you had to suffer urine smell at some places in India.

Spent two nights in Chitra Katha. Staff was very helpful and relaxed. I especially enjoyed the fact that they were relaxed and not pushy at all (compared to other Indian hotels). Able to (safely) leave your bag after checkout. Roomservice was good, nice hot water shower and soap etc. Shared balconies on several places on the quiet backside of the... More

It was delight to hear those words from you. It is like your child topping the examinations when you were really hoping for average marks. But on the serious note, it is actually the everyday grooming exercise that has got us this far. We are very happy to know that we could live up to your expectations on food, room,... More
