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. Kamal and Manju Kapur were perfect hosts and were there to... More

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. After a warm welcome (flowers, drinks) they provide you any information and support you during your stay in Varanasi. We joined a great morning boat trip as well as a tour through the... More

Mr & Mrs Kapur, the owners of this well maintained homestay, were excellent hosts during our 3-day stay with them in Varanasi. Mr and Mrs Kapur were incredibly knowledgeable about Varanasi, Hinduism, politics, and so on, they were a fantastic source of information for our first trip to India. Their expert local advice helped us navigate incredible Varanasi. Words cannot... More

We had an absolutely exceptional time with Mr & Mrs Kapur. They are very warm and thoughtful hosts. The room itself is very comfortable. Mrs Kapur has anticipated almost everything you might need in your room - for new airb&bers it made transitioning from a hotel format so much easier. Mrs Kapur's home cooked meals were delicious and the breakfast... More

Mr. and Mrs. Kapur (Hi guys!) were absolutely incredible to me (solo female traveler). It was nearing the end of my travels and I was getting fatigued by the whole process. They made sure I was well taken care of. Mrs. Kapur would insist I would eat regularly (time constraints and rushed itineraries were disrupting this), and personally cooked the... More

The owners are very warm and friendly people who can't do enough for you! It's in a safe area and close to the religious sites. The food was very good and the owner even took us sari shopping! If you're looking for a home away from home this is definitely the place!

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).

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
