We stayed for about a week in this exciting city and were so glad we stayed with the Kapors. Varanasi is a VERY exciting city with much to see. It can, however, overwhelm the most seasoned traveller. Staying with the helpful, charming and knowledgeable Kapors ensures you get the most out of your stay. No hesitation in recommending this place.

Mr Kapor was very helpful right from first booking on here sorting out where to go and airport pick ups and drop offs and a guide for us as our time was to be so limited. Met at airport by guide and taxi driver. Arrived at Homestay after attending evening Arti and halfway through evening meal. Given a lovely welcome...

We had a delightful four night stay in Mr and Mrs Kapur's home. They made us feel very much at home. Manu Kapur is a fantastic cook - talented and creative, with her own take on traditional vegetarian recipes. They have worked out a comprehensive range of tourist options, and also sort out taxis and guides as you wish. Because...

We had a very enjoyable two night stay at Aashray. We stayed in the Emerald room which had a large, firm bed and everything a traveller could need. The food is indeed as good as all other reviews have said and the hosts were gracious, lovely people. We used their transport to get to and from the airport and this...

We enjoyed our stay in Varanasi with the Kapurs. They opened their home to us over New Year's Eve and we had a nice, quiet stay with them. So interesting to chat with such a special family. My husband and I could't finish the meals Mrs Kapur cooked for us. So delicious. They gave us great tips on what to...

We spent a few lovely nights with the Kapurs. They were gracious hosts, organizing tours for us, answering all of our questions, and generally making us feel at home. Mrs. Kapur's cooking was one of the highlights of our trip to India, as her food was unlike anything we had in restaurants. Would recommend it in a heartbeat!

We stayed at Aashray for two nights and rooms were like being at home -- comfortable, clean, quiet, with full amenities. The family was gracious and kind. Food was just the best Indian we have had. They arranged a special massage person to come, and a visit to local fabric facility. We were close to the main streets but far...

The location was close to everything AND a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle. I had my own balcony on the top floor room. The food was absolutely delicious and I was able to request a special indian dish for dinner one night and they made it for me. Our hosts, the Kapurs are delightful people and are...

We stayed the last two days of our new years eve family vacation with the Kapurs and such a memorable stay it was. The small but cosy & clean rooms, homely food, surprisingly quite neighborhood yet so near from the main places of attractions and above all the hosts themselves made our Varanasi tour even better.

Aashray is a wonderful homestay in Varanasi! The rooms are really comfortable and spacious. Every day we stayed there, Mrs. Kapoor made really good local food for our breakfast and we enjoyed pleasant and informative conversations every morning. Mr. Kapoor is very proud of sharing his indian culture with us. We highly recommend staying in Aashray! The wifi doesn't work...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aashray is in the heart of city, yet away from crowd. It's in a colony, but the main road linking the entire city is less than 100 meters away. Railway or bus station, temples, Ghats, shopping centers, mall, craft centers, restaurants, boats, hospitals and eatables, are all available within the radius of three kilometers of the house. Your Hosts: The Kapurs, are mixture of traditional and modern values. Mr Kapur, although a chartered accountant by profession is an avid reader of Hindi literature and devotes a lot of his time in keeping alive the beautiful culture of Varanasi. Mrs Kapur, with a graduation in Indian Classical music, is known more for her warmth and the magic she creates with the Indian veggies (you might almost forget your meats and fish for a while)! They have not forgotten their traditional customs and values but at the same time modern customs and values have been accepted whole-heartedly. Thanks to their interest in Yoga, history of India, local culture and traditions, they are able to share a lot and invite you to be a part of their lives for the moments that you are with them! ... more   less
