The approach to Hotel is awesome, once you enter from the main road, you have a railway track, post the railway track, it has a grounded reception and then flight of stair on the river to the Hotel 👌👌. View from the hotel is heavenly, passing streamers and boats look awesome 👍

A very nice concept but poorly maintained property. It can be a nightmare for a over enthusiastic traveler. Badly asking for renovation. Smelly rooms with damaged furniture. Staff don't give a dam to guests. I really had to search for Waiter during breakfast. But despite all this, rooms gives a fantastic view of the Ganga river and Howrah bridge. This...

We loved staying here because it is funky and the location and river views are extraordinary- we found the service simply excellent. On the other hand, the hallways are in terrible shape, the maintenance is poor, and many areas of the hotel smell of mold, cigarettes, and other nastiness. This includes the elevator. We stayed in the suite, which saved...

We had the most harrowing and humiliating experience during our stay and Training at FLOATEL between 27th. Dec. and 30th. Dec. 2016. The behaviour of the Staff was very disrespectful. The maintenance is below standard. The Food was most horrible - stale, salad was rotten, chicken had a stink, the items were repetetive throughout the tenure of the training and...

It was a truly amazing dinner. Full credits to the ambience. It was lovely and so soothing between water. Picture perfect. Awesome for couples. Specifically liked the candle light at every table. A must visit at least once.

I stayed at the hotel for a night based on the recommendation of my colleagues. The entrance gives a nice feeling with a railway track just outside the reception area and the feeling of entering a ship that's converted to hotel. The staff are quiet friendly and professional. The infrastructure seems poor. The rooms are quite small and not too...
