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

This is a place where you can feel at home,like the good old styled pensions in Europe. Its closeness to a main road may create some noise but you won't be staying in the hotel all day long anyway. Price is good for a boutique hotel with 4 or 5 rooms. Food is good, rooms are very clean. Staff is... More

General's Retreat has been around for several years and is really one of the most comfortable home stays in town. It is well located, the owners are warm and friendly and the place is safe. What adds to it over all charm is the spacious lawn and the beautiful balcony where you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee... More

I can say this is one of the best hotels I ever stayed in India. Extremely clean, excellent service, owner and staff are very friendly. Rooms are extra neat and clean. I stayed three nights and consider one of my favorite places in India. I visit India for 3 months every year for the last six years.
