As a solo female Traver to Varanasi, staying at Aashray was a very mixed experience with some positive parts and significant negatives/disappointments. Positives: - Mrs. Kapur is wonderful. She is kind, open and caring and I debated for a week before writing this review simply because she is such a great lady - Mrs. Kapur's food was simply delicious, probably... More

Dear Natalie, Thanks for your feedback and your words of appreciation. My wife is grateful for all the kind things you have said about her. But we are sorry to hear that we did not match your expectation although we tried our very best. We do wish to mention a few points here though: 1. The Pearl room that you... More

The Kapurs offered great service, both in terms of food and accommodation as well as Mr Kapur being our guide on a morning boat ride on the river. Their homestay is located somewhat away from the most crowded areas and not within walking distance to the ghats. That means you can get a good night's sleep. As a homestay it... More

Our 2 night stay in Varanasi was at the Aashray. The homestay was an easy rickshaw ride to the ghats but away from the hustle. The Kapurs were wonderful hosts and treated us to great Indian food and interesting conversation. Mr Kapur is an historian and shared his knowledge of Varanasi and Indian culture. We went with him to the... More

Stop reading and make a reservation. The Kapurs will take you into their home and make you feel like family. This nice home, away from but not far from the craziness of the Varanasi's Ganges area, is a perfect place to explore from. I had one lunch when I arrived and it was among the best food I ate in...

I would highly recommend staying with the Kapurs. From the minute you arrive till you leave you will feel as though you have friends looking after you. The homestay is a lovely residence just outside the busy chaos of Varanasi. But within easy distance. I prefer the two rooms on the top floor. They are upstairs, and slightly removed from... More

Traveling to India for the first time, my girlfriend and I showed up to the Ashray not knowing what to expect from a homestay. Our hosts Mr. and Mrs. Kapur welcomed us into their home, and their India, with extraordinary warmth. First off, Mrs. Kapur's cooking is absolutely world-class. She grows a lot of her ingredients in her own garden... More

My husband and I had never been to India before, and we were eager to find peaceful oases from the slew of new experiences we expected to find in this amazing country. We hoped, as well, to be enriched and informed by staying with families, rather than in hotels. The Kapurs provided both, and we're grateful to them for their... More

It was so wonderful to leave hotels behind and experience a homestay in India, and staying with the Kapurs exceeded our expectations in every way. The greeting and care we received was so warm, kind and genuine. They were interested in our experience in Varanasi and totally committed to our comfortability in their home. There's free wifi.

We stayed there for 2 nights at the conclusion of a five week tour of northern India. The Kapurs were extremely cordial and their food is some of the best we had in India. Our room was basic but fully equipped and extremely clean. There was free WiFi. Our one regret is that -- since we had booked through an... More
