“like staying at a dear friends home”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

There is a reason why I am here every year, since I got introduced by a friend to this lovely place in Jaipur.
Mainly I am for work in Jaipur and coming to this extremely well located house and atmosphere after work
makes me feel comfortable and well taken care of. In the General's Retreat you feel the life and times which passed thru this house, yet wifi works everywhere!
a wonderful place with polite staff, nice rooms and with excellent Indian home made food. it is like staying at a dear friends home, a friend who will spoil you, yet leave you to relax and unwind.
A unique and very sweet little property.

I stayed here for a night whilst researching homestays and women safe accommodation for my website. What I loved...lovely big lawn and garden, the feeling of being home rather than in a hotel and the very hospitable staff. Its close to the railway and bus stations, wifi is available and my favourite shop is (Anokhi) is just around the corner!

We found that the secret of travelling through India is to know some good retreats to be able to escape the chaos every once in a while.
The Generals Retreat is exactly such a place, with nice balconies, a terrace, garden and patio, good food and very friendly staff.

We were completely taken in with this place and the warmth and hospitality shown by the staff. The meals were excellent and sitting outside in the evening and enjoying the atmosphere of Jaipur was the perfect end to our hectic sightseeing days. The meals were excellent and the staff went out of their way to make sure we got what we wanted. The inn is centrally located and we enjoyed short walking trips to the pink city, Anokhi for shopping and some restaurants. Surendra was more than helpful to arrange out transportation to Pushkar and a taxi back to Delhi via Agra. Can't say enough for his help during our stay there. The rooms are large and comfortable and we will certainly make a return trip to them at some point in the future if Jaipur is included in our trip. Thanks to all for making it a wonderful stay in Jaipur.

We had a wonderfully warm welcome, and two delicious vegetarian meals. Mrs Singh found us a pleasant and helpful driver who took us wherever we wanted to go in Jaipur. The General's Retreat has charm and individuality, and isn't far from the centre of Jaipur.

This hotel was one of our most favorite places to stay in all of India! Very comfortable and clean...and quiet...yet very conveniently located. The decor is charming, the restaurant had delicious food...the owner and staff were so kind and helpful, (thank you Surendra!) We arrived after a harrowing car ride from Delhi; hungry, travel weary and exhausted to this lovely guest house...where they made us a pot of tea and grilled cheese sandwiches, we showered and enjoyed WIFI while we rested. We will be back,
truly a retreat.
