I'm giving 2* rating because of the concept and deducted 3* because of the poor service what I received. I stayed in Floatel last year, pretty excited that time because I was going to stay in India's first floating hotel. But when I entered in my room I was shocked. Room was very small, old furniture and wash room was...

The concept is different and staying on a floating hotel on a river is a different experience, but that's all about it. The room, furniture, ambiance all are very average. A two star might have the same or better furniture or decorum on land. I think this place is overpriced in that sense. They have a restaurant named "The Bridge"...

The River front view is wonderful with excellent gardening, landscaping , pathways for strollers and local eateries offering ethnic food at reasonable rates. The public at large are very helpful and co-operative and the locals are excellent guides for new comers.

It is one of the best hotels to visit in Kolkata if you want to behold the beauty of the city on the great river and the two giant bridges across the river. Staffs are really helpful especially the frond desk. Mr Shad was really courteous and conducive. The size of rooms are small and food needs little improvement. Altogether...
