This was our second visit to jaipur, I will not even bother selecting any other hotel to stay other than Chitra Katha. We reached the hotel at 2 AM after a very long road trip and the staff was very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff ensured they attended to our needs immediately. We asked for wifi password at...

Hi, Our stay was nice with good spacious clean room. Nice rooftop restaurant like all the other hotels nearby. Price was good for room . Only problem was high 40% commission taken on train tickets but I suppose this is what happens when you book through your hotel.

Thank you so much for sharing this valuable feedback. We are glad you liked the property and that your stay was comfortable. As far as train ticket booking is concerned and the commission, please note that this is done by a third party vendor and they increase or decrease their commission as per availability and tourist season. We do not...

I never expected a room as good as this in budget range. The hotel is situated away from the main road , hence less noise pollution. The stay wouldn't have been easier without the help of Ujwal who immediately addressed all the arrangements quickly. Roof top restaurant is an ad on. Overall, my stay at this hotel is excellent.

Glad you said it. It is one of the best value hotel around but very few guests mention it. And as far as 'prompt service' is concerned, please note that we do not know any other kind. Cheers :)

Very unimpressed by the restaurant. They offered over 12 different types of chicken on their menu but they had run out of all of them, leaving the chicken masala as the only option. Very disappointing as I was craving a tandoori! Eventually decided upon a pizza and it was UNFORGIVABLY tiny. Not to mention that it was bang average in...

First and foremost, let me apologise for the inconvenience caused. Having said that, please note that a bad day at work is more or less like a bad hair day and can happen to anyone. But we agree, in hospitality industry we cannot depend on this excuse. We'll pull up our socks and be ready so that no one in...

I've stayed at Chitrakatha in the august of '16. The room given was neat and clean with a good wifi and hot water supply. The food at the restaurant is good. The connectivity is good with uber anytime available within 5-10 minutes. A good value for money hotel, a budget stay for backpackers

"Good value for my money and budget stay for bagpackers" WOW! Well, it is always a pleasure to receive good reviews but whats more important here is the choice of words. Nicely articulated as we hate the term 'cheap'. Thank you so much for letting us host you in Jaipur. Here's to many more pleasurable vacations. Cheers.

We stayed for 3 days in chitrkatha hotel, nice location but far from main road. Room was clean and spacious, staff also co-operative. Terrace garden restaurant was nice and peaceful but we used to eat at kalyan hotel next to chitraktha. All over nice stay and enjoyed our days.

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.
