Mr and Mrs Kapur are welcoming hosts, warmly inviting guests into their home. Mrs Kapur is a wonderful cook and her breakfasts were the highlight of our stay in Varanasi. The room was clean but basic - no complaints. But compared to the other places we stayed in India, this was very over-priced and we got far more for our...

Thanks Rachel for your frank comments. We like to clear about some confusions. Elec. tuktuk is not related to us and it belongs to a staff working with us and it was your choice to go by that to Sarnath for half day and which is 20 kms. away from our place. Secondly about your train reservation, you had wait...

Mr and Mrs Kapua has been one of the most warm and hospitable hosts I've ever met; I enjoyed the every story of Indian culture and history they've shared. They are like my grandparents and treated me with the most loving care I can imagine. They provided brilliant recommendations for places to visit (e.g. beautiful temples where locals frequented); and...

Were to start... :) Aashray homestay is India at its best in our opinion. Our stay included the fantastic friendlyness and hospitality of Mrs and Mr Kapur. Together they served us India in the ways of excellent knowledge of the Indian culture, Indian food, Indian history with its traditons and complexity. All of this topped up with a great knowledge...

Aashray homestay is a real gem in Varanasi. The house is located in a quiet area with easy access to the ghats and tourist attractions. The rooms were just gorgeously decorated and bright and airy supplied with everything you could need. Mr and Mrs Kapur are wonderful, natural and genuine hosts who made me instantly feel welcome and kept me...

We stayed for about a week in this exciting city and were so glad we stayed with the Kapors. Varanasi is a VERY exciting city with much to see. It can, however, overwhelm the most seasoned traveller. Staying with the helpful, charming and knowledgeable Kapors ensures you get the most out of your stay. No hesitation in recommending this place.

Mr Kapor was very helpful right from first booking on here sorting out where to go and airport pick ups and drop offs and a guide for us as our time was to be so limited. Met at airport by guide and taxi driver. Arrived at Homestay after attending evening Arti and halfway through evening meal. Given a lovely welcome...

We had a delightful four night stay in Mr and Mrs Kapur's home. They made us feel very much at home. Manu Kapur is a fantastic cook - talented and creative, with her own take on traditional vegetarian recipes. They have worked out a comprehensive range of tourist options, and also sort out taxis and guides as you wish. Because...

We had a very enjoyable two night stay at Aashray. We stayed in the Emerald room which had a large, firm bed and everything a traveller could need.

We enjoyed our stay in Varanasi with the Kapurs. They opened their home to us over New Year's Eve and we had a nice, quiet stay with them. So interesting to chat with such a special family.

We spent a few lovely nights with the Kapurs. They were gracious hosts, organizing tours for us, answering all of our questions, and generally making us feel at home. Mrs. Kapur's cooking was one of the highlights of our trip to India, as her food was unlike anything we had in restaurants. Would recommend it in a heartbeat!

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
