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). We loved every bite, and feel spoiled for the rest of our trip. The room was well-appointed with thoughtful touches, including fresh water, coffee and tea, slippers, framed Benares... More

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
