My partner and I stayed here for one week. The food in the restaurant is the best on the street. The peacock restaurant across the road is recommended by others but personally we found the food and service at chitra katha excellent.

It is sad that you found the person at the front office to be rude. Really and still you have given us great ranking. Thank you so much for that generous review.

I should say from the outset that my two night stay here cost about £12, so take my complaints with a pinch of salt. And to be fair the staff did sort of make it up as my stay went on. Negatives: my room was like a sauna. The booking.com description said air conditioning, which in fact meant a cooler,... More

At 12£ for two nights in a deluxe ac room with breakfast and the helpful and cheerful hospitality that you received might sound 'comical' to you but it doesn't seem amusing to us, straight talker.

I stayed here with my partner in February 2016 for two nights. The first good point was that they let us check into our room almost two hours early, without any extra charge! The room was clean and comfy, fairly basic but fine for our needs, clean sheets, hot shower, tv etc. I appreciated the little arty touches dotted around... More

I stayed with my family during the month of december for a couple days at chitra katha. Negatives: First of all, this is not a hotel. More like a 3-story house that has been converted into a hotel.
