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. We are just a small cog in the big wheel but we hope, wish and pray that the hygiene standards improve and also that... More

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

While on one hand, we are extremely happy that our rooms, cleanliness, restaurant and food did not disappoint you. On the other hand, we are ashamed that our managerial expertise never came close to satisfying you in the manner we have been approaching it with every other guest. This is seriously one its kind glitch. A series of unpredictable events... More

Me and my partner have stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Since the beggining staff was helpful and kind. The room was simple yet very comfy and the hotel is located at a nice and quiet neighborhood. But what we liked the most was the restaurant at the rooftop. Food and service were awesome, beautiful place and good prices.... More

Great 4 bed dorm with cable TV and hot water!!! Nice and clean. Right across the road from peacock restaurant as well as it own (no extra charge) room service with rooftop restaurant. Only downside was wifi quality wasn't that great and no common room. Otherwise very good place to stay

The dorm is actually a great space. We agree with you. :) And as far as common room is concerned it's coming up this year. We understand that our guests need some space apart from the rooms and the restaurant. The work is in progress and soon we'll introduce this space. Stay tuned! Cheers. More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a double room which was small but clean, especially the bathroom. The restaurant was excellent, our best thali in Rajasthan!

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.
