Loved this place and the genteel Kapoors. Mrs. Kapoor is an amazing cook, and we were so happy to return to their sweet place each evening for dinner (after amazing breakfasts). We loved every bite, and feel spoiled for the rest of our trip. The room was well-appointed with thoughtful touches, including fresh water, coffee and tea, slippers, framed Benares... More

Thank you Kamal for your warm and friendly hospitality during our short stay in Varanasi. We felt at home from the moment we arrived - from our lovely room decorated in block prints, to your wife's delicious and healthy home cooked recipes and the Christmas cake you graced us with. Our conversations about religion, history and culture walking through the... More

Both the accommodations and the warm lovely couple were absolutely perfect! Very clean, spacious room and an overall charming and warm atmosphere. And the food...divine!! I highly recommend staying here if you're lucky enough to make it Varanasi!

We stayed 9 days in Mr. and Mrs. Kapoor's lovely house in Varanasi. They made us feel at home. Mrs. Kapoor's food was simply delicious and Mr. Kapoor gave us very helpful information about Varanasi - where to go, what to see etc. Both are really kind people and have a lot of interesting stories to tell about Varanasi and...

Mr & Mrs Kapoor are the best! As a solo female traveler, this was the perfect place to stay. I felt as if I was a part of their family - they are both warm, welcoming and accommodating. Mrs. Kapoor's cooking is the best - breakfast is included (and amazing), but make sure to have dinner there at least once.... More

This was a highlight of my India trip. From Mrs. Kapur's wonderful cooking to Mr. Kapur sharing with me the history of Hinduism. They also recommended me to a great guide and arranged tours with Ranjit. His tour was fun, exciting and he is super cool! I highly recommend staying here. They are two of the nicest and kindest people... More

When traveling in India, every once in a while one needs a breather, time out of the noise, pollution, cacophony that makes India so brilliant. That is what staying at the Aashray was like. An Oasis. The room was so freshly painted in white. The decor was also fresh, welcoming and small touches weren't missed. So rare and in contrast... More

After traveling all night by train, I received a warm welcome from Mr. & Mrs. Kanpur. The freshly prepared meals were wonderful and room very comfortable. It made a difference staying at a small home stay well away from their river and the main tourist areas. Aashray felt like a home away from home
