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 dinner (dinner is extra cost) were delicious. Mrs. Kapur is an incredible cook, and even shared a recipe with me. Mr. Kapur is very knowledgable about the history and politics of India, and it was lovely to chat with them both at meals. The rooms were nice. It's a very different experience from a regular hotel, and will greatly enhance your visit to India.
- 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
