The hotel has a number of surprises or ship environment embedded in it, which you will appreciate. The views of sunset rooms are fabulous (sunrise rooms face the land). Room interior has nothing special and looks like an ordinary hotel. Sleep quality is good. Probably they have flat tvs in Sunset and suits only. But the worst part is AC....

This three tier hotel and restaurant is unique owing since it floats on the river Ganges. If you are booking a room here, be sure your window is river facing. The restaurant offers a good spread of culinary mixes and wines. An evening on the upper deck, with the gentle south breeze blowing is worth an experience.

We wanted no ordinary hotel and weve got it. Nice terrace views, reception is helpfull. House keeping is chaotic. Hotel is worn out, with stains, bad maintanance and tears all over. If you are freaking about hygiene, stay away. Though, they said they have plans of reconstruction.

We had our reunion meet in the evening. The canvas room is ideal with a covered deck and a open deck where you can enjoy the view of the Howrah. The food and hospitality was phenomenal. While the food was reasonable the beverages were pricey. 5 star all the way.

I had a family dinner on the deck adjacent to the buffet serving restaurant. The atmosphere was good in open air with river view. However the sitting arrangement was not so comfortable. As regards food only the kebab served as starter was good. The main course was very ordinary & not worth the money.

Floatel is a very unique Hotel and even though it's a bit run down, it carries a charm like nothing else. The rooms are fairly ok and clean. The Restaurent on the top deck and the Bar at the ground level are decent with good food. Fish preparations are exotic and should be tried.
