"You are allowed before 12 noon", doesn't mean that I am assuring you the bed my dear. It is our hospitality that we don't wish away our guests. It is our duty to make you feel welcome and comfortable at whatever time you may turn up but then the check-in time is 12 and 12 only. So when you arrive... 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. The rooms are very tiny and can fit only 2 people. You can barely move around in the rooms and honestly speaking,... More

Not bad. Nice and clean rooms. Great food, courteous staff and service.

Stayed one night at the hotel Everything was as expected. Nothing to say bad about . Liked the staff they were very helpful. The owner was very nice and friendly. Don't fall for the breakfast included deal at agoda. They don't have breakfast buffet. Living next to Fort just feels different
