We made an overnight pitstop in jaipur while returning to delhi from udaipur. It was a comfortable, affordable stay with an accommodating staff for travellers with an infant like us. They heated water for us to carry back and have even promised to courier my baby's toy that we left by mistake. Specially enjoyed the simple dinner which was like... More

Great breakfast and also the dinner we had on second day. Reminds me of Tagore's line-Simple is Beautiful. at the same time its so elegant and majestic. Nothing that is missing but... More

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
