We enjoyed our stay here very much. The rooms are cosy and the food great. We were so grateful to all the staff who took great care and made our stay memorable. Clean place with a fabulous garden space! Surely recommend this place to people looking for a place in Jaipur.

I recently visited Jaipur along with my family and an exchange student from South africa and stayed at The Generals Retreat. We felt so much at home as everyone was so helpful . The guest house is very well located, tastefully done up and is very affordable. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Jaipur.

I recently visited Jaipur in July and happened to stay at The Generals Retreat (One of my friends had suggested it and she only had good things to say about the property). The guest house is run by the family of the late General Umrao Singh, and is an oasis within the bustling city of Jaipur. Extremely central and clean,... More

good location, great service, nice breakfast, we wanted to watch a tennis game, the satellite was out in our room, they allowed us to watch the game in the general’s room until the cable guy came and fixed the issue in our room (about 30 min wait), very personalized service and attention!

As the name suggest.. Generals retreat belongs to a retired army general.. A Beautiful guest House, close to the main market and yet far from the crowd.. The rooms are great.. Huge garden and a friendly labra lurking around.. There was just one drawback that the bathroom doors could not be locked from inside in two of our rooms.. Rest... More

After an exciting but exhausting 10 days touring Rajasthan my partner and I arrived at the General's Retreat and it honestly felt like coming home. The impressive house is an oasis of calm located in central Jaipur (we walked to the Bazaar.) Of all the hotels/havelis we stayed in during our trip The General's Retreat offered the best value for... More

My recent stay during the Jaipur Literary Festival was a lovely, comfortable experience at the Generals Retreat. The place is a beautiful large home, a property with tastefully appointed clean, comfortable rooms, lovely garden, courteous, attentive staff and a very charming owner, Ketaki Singh. Its cheerful, relaxed ambience, good food and 3 dogs were an instant hit with me. A... More

My mother, boyfriend, and I shared a room for several days here, and it was comfortable with great wifi. The family lives downstairs with their 3 dogs. 6-7 boys live in the servants quarters and are who you interact with the most. Everyone was nice and helpful, and I loved being able to pet a dog (had just spent time... More

Chose this place as it was highly rated in TripAdvisor. Although I am not disappointed with my choice, I am not in awe either. Probabaly it was because I had just done a homestay at Coorg a few weeks back and in comparison, General's Retreat was not as expected. Positives: The staff - very polite and prompt. The property has... More

One of the best home-stays in India. Clean, hospitable, great food, in fact you can order a menu and friendly owners. Alas, the Bishts whose home it is are no more but their daughter and son-in-law have filled in the vacuum wonderfully well. They guide you through the shops of Jaipur and never mislead. The only irritant, if one can... More
