Thank you so much for staying with us and sending us this fabulous review. These single rooms are built keeping in mind the needs of a solo female traveller (even a male can occupy). A sit-out is a must at our place. Sun-deck’s available for all our guests and that’s an essential part of our hospitality. Free wi-fi is usually... More

The Chitra Katha has been the cleanest tidiest small cheap hotel I have stayed in during my travels in India. I tried to stay at the Palace across the road but it was booked so came here. I highly recommend it if you come to Jaipur. The staff are also very and friendly and helpful

Thank you for appreciating our staff, service, rooms and cleanliness. My only request has been and it’s here to stay I guess, that “cheap” is not a word which we would like to associate with. We deliver hygiene, warmth and integrity at reasonable rates. It cannot be called cheap. Affordable, reasonable, economical, cost-effective are all fine adjectives. Please don’t appreciate... More

Visited Jaipur on 22nd Dec 2015 and stayed at this hotel for 3 days. The location is slightly difficult to find. However, if you use GPS or ask locals, you will locate this hotel quickly. We took the AC Deluxe room. Though the room was not very huge but it was comfortable. The roof top restaurant was amazing. The food... More

Thank you so much for sending us this review, appreciating our rooms, restaurant, food and location. In fact you went beyond the realms of a traditional review to share the famous tourist destination list of Jaipur. That’s unique and special. But please note, that even if it is not a legal mandate in the city where you live, you must... More

The location is very cool. And the area is so calm and close to bus depot. The room is very neat and clean and everything is neatly kept in hotel. And the exterior and interiors are very designer thinking. You can visit anytime any day in your budget.

AnshuSharma, Owner at Chitra Katha, responded to this review

It gives us immense pleasure to receive a review like this. It is short, sharp and covers almost everything that we wish to hear. Thank you guest but to be fair, the hotel is still far from being called a designer boutique. Long way to go. But as long as we have patrons like you, we believe, it’s possible. Cheers. More

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.
