The reviews here for Aashray are spot-on! Everything was wonderful from the warm welcome, the gratifying breakfasts, the relaxed and easy conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Kapur. Their passion as hosts exudes in their attention to the little things that make will make your stay comfortable and relaxing. I was treated as a family and not as a guest. The... More

Kapur family will treat you like a real king. Their house is on a side street so you won't suffer the chaotic noise of Varanasi. Not on the ghat (but this is clear from the description) so you will need a tuktuk to get there. Breakfast was wonderful and delicious. Morning trip on the boat simply magic. Room is clean... More

Our family of four ( 2 parents, 15 & 18 year old teens) had a wonderful time at the Aashray Home Stay while in Varanasi. This a quiet tranquil space in to relax and really feel at home. We really felt like we were visiting family in India, which was so much nicer than feeling like tourists. The breakfasts and... More

There are many compliments written here to Mr. and Mrs. Kapur for their excellent service. I will not repeat many of the ideas voiced before, but I will only emphasize a few things.

We, my parents and me, had a wonderful stay with Mister and Mrs Kapur. They are taking care in every detail and absolutely a beautiful example of Indian hospitality. Everything can be arranged (tours, food, taxi). We were lucky that Mister Kapur was our guide on the morning boat excursion. His knowledge about the city and Indian culture was adding... More

India has shown itself to be a land of hospitality, band our hosts at Aashray Homestay are shining examples of this. Our plane had been delayed almost thee hours and we arrived later in the evening, tired and hungry. No problem. They had a warm dinner ready for us. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast while chatting with... More

I stayed here for 2 days out of a month-long expedition through India and this was one of the most welcoming and pleasant stays I had. The husband/wife hosts were very pleasant, giving tips on what to do and see, and the food was home-cooked and restaurant-quality. I could honestly say that I felt like I was at home whilst... More

Our Family spended Xmas time in Aashray during our travel around India. For our children, Mr. & Mrs Kapur seem like grandparents: they were interesting about us, always ready to help and take care and cooked tasty homemade meal. Their cosy house was like our house and we know that the next time we will go to Varanasi, we will... More

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 post 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
