Not sure why this place has such high reviews... The rooms are pretty noisy and the out-of-the-way location means you're harangued by a cartel of tuktuk drivers as soon as you set foot outside. Service is patchy and downright unhelpful in the afternoon - I ended up booking my onward travel through the hotel next door! And inexplicably the rooftop...

It is such a pity that you got to experience what no one else ever did and I want to say this without sounding condescending. I am not going to defend my staff who has got generous reviews for going out of their way to help guests, umpteen number of times. It is sad that such a central, residential, quiet...

If I am a traveller what do I expect from a hotel : 1. Clean bed to sleep 2. Delicious food 3. Amiable host Mr. Sharma at reception told me that all he wanted to do after retirement to keep himself occupied and that's how he came up with the idea of a hotel where many stories are created. He...

We stayed at Chitra Katha for 4 days at the end of a 6 weeks holiday in India. The hotel is quaint and beautifully decorated. The food was amazing. The best in India so far! The rooms are fairly large and have balconies. I would definitely recommend hiring a tuk tuk from the hotel. We had tried walking the first...
