I had reserved a room for a day. Gargee Das was the one in charge of the entire proceedings and I must mention it was a very smooth process and all of the information was conveyed via emails with utmost professionalism and clarity. I would like to thank the entire team of Floatel for a flawless reservation experience. Looking forward to having more such experiences!
