Varanasi and our stay at Aashray was one of the highlights of our trip. India Someday made the booking for my husband and I. Mr. and Mrs. Kapur were warm hosts who assisted us in every way we needed and provided us with insights into life in the area. But I still think the best part was Mrs. Kapur's cooking.... More

Our brief stay at Aashray (the name is well thought and both Kapur uncle and aunty justified the name) was excellent. The room we stayed is of international standard (it is at par with most of the european homestays we stayed). They were very helpful and kind. My wife fell sick, and they helped us finding doctor and even aunty... More

As a solo female traveller, i was a bit sceptical in terms of accomodation in Varanasi. But all my fears vanished the moment i stepped in Aashray. The warmth ,hospitality and kindness of Mr and Mrs Kapur can't be expressed by mere words. This coupled with Mrs.Kapur's yummylicious breakfast made by 3 day stay in Varanasi a trip worth cherishing... More

Mr. and Mrs. Kapur made us feel like family from the moment we arrived to Varanasi. Their kindness, generosity and care left a very, deep impression in our hearts.

Having only just looked at previous reviews, we can only echo every single positive thing so far said. Our travel agent booked this place for us and we really had no idea what to expect. Varanasi is possibly the most chaotic place in the world and this haven of peace and love was beyond our expectations. Mrs Kapur we love... More

I was extremely fortunate to find this wonderful guesthouse at short notice, and stayed from 3-11 March 2016. I have found that accommodation in India often doesn't live up to its advertised hype, but Aashray more than does. I rate it highly on cleanliness, safety, space, calm - but what made it special for me were my host and hostess,... More

This was a great place to stay and we were there for three nights as part of a longer Indian holiday – We arrived in Varanasi by train which was delayed several hours with the result that it was well after midnight when we arrived at the Aashray Homestead.

We couldn't be happier to have found this amazing homestay with the Kapur family. The house is located off the main street in a quiet location, perfect place to relax at the end of a long and tiring day around the intense Varanasi and the Ganges. We were a bit hesitant initially not to be closer to the river but... More

If you looking for an peaceful place, contact to locals and delicious Indian food the Aashray run by Mr and Mrs Kapur is a very good choice.

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
