We were lucky enough to stay 3 nights with the Kapurs in their lovely home in Varanasi. It was quiet. safe and just a wonderful home to return to each evening. My husband was ill while here and Mr and Mrs Kapur were so caring and concerned, taking him to the doctors home a few doors away and personally going... More

My cousin and I stayed at the Aashray Homestay with Mr and Mrs Kapur for two nights and had a lovely experience. We felt like they were like parents to us--two women alone. The meals were tasty. The room was clean and comfortable. They gave us suggestions on how to spend our time and helped arrange our activities. Very knowledgable... More

My wife and I stayed at Aashray homestay for two nights in Feb 2015. The vegetarian meals were really excellent - we took home a couple of recipes. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The Kapurs were very gracious hosts, and arranged for a great guide for one of our days. The only issues we had were the issues... More

This place was simply a home away from home. Mr & Mrs Kapur are two of the nicest people I have ever met. My fiance and I stayed at the end of 2014 for 3 nights. The accommodation was spotless, the hospitality was first class and there was an extra level of depth provided by the hosts that made the... More

We stayed with the Kapurs for two nights in their Pearl Room. The room was very clean and private with an en-suite bathroom. We had originally planned to have one meal cooked by Mrs Kapur, but upon tasting her food, we decided to have all of our meals there. Without doubt the best food we tasted in India. There was...

From the moment we were ushered into ashray homestay by the Kapurs I felt immediately at home. I was handed mango juice and a marigold flower necklace. My cousin and I feel like we now had grandparents in India! We loved the room. Best sleep I had in India. It's on a quiet street so no street noise! The kapurs... More

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

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
