"A unique floating experience"

6.4/7
Posted 21 Jun, 2013

The purpose of stay at Floatel, Kolkata was to enjoy an experience of staying with family in a unique and the only floating hotel in India. It is a 4-star hotel floating on the river Hoogly. The 4-storeyed structure is designed on the basis of international marine standards and properly anchored and moored with chains to the coast. The entrance is through a bridge from Strand Road across the circular railway track a Km south from the Howrah bridge. The staff were dressed in white suit, look like officers from navy. The rooms have excellent river view, you wont get tired watching ferries across the river since morning to midnight. The restaurant has even a better view of water. Food were tasty matching with the fame of the hotel. Located on the downtown Kolkata,the hotel is best for business travellers, but not a bad one either for a family stay. Only problem is having a family walk outside after evening, the area becomes deserted. Anyway, a taxi is always available outside, the staff can call one for you. There is a good parking area too on the premises outside.

"A different stay in a good hotel"

5.8/7
Posted 18 Nov, 2015

Was looking for a stay in Kolkata, it was my first visit and wanted to try a different stay. Though I was skeptical about the upkeep and hospitality I went ahead and booked the hotel. I reached the place earlier than check-in time. The rooms were all full but the front desk were very friendly and were quick to arrange and ready to help. Went to the restaurant on top and the staff there were quite helpful, wish there were more option in then food though. Overall the location is excellent and the staff quite warm and friendly. Rooms are neat and clean. Will definitely visit again when in Kolkata. Proximity to stations and the market is very good.

"Amazing location & good rooms with tasty food "

5.4/7
Posted 26 Oct, 2015

Visited on June 2015 this year with my wife. The location of the hotel is amazing, inside ganges it's a unique concept. My wife loved it. The room was very good, we could see view of Hooghly river from room window which is very pleasant to eyes. Room was very clean and very well-maintained. All the necessary amenities were present. The food was delicious but little costly. Breakfast was very god had lots of items. The service was very good. The staff was very helpful and very professional. I suggest to take sunset rooms. They have more beautiful view than sunrise rooms. It a very beautiful place to stay for couples. I highly recommend this hotel, would love to visit again.

"Open Restaurant at top floor - A unique experience"

6.4/7
Posted 7 Sep, 2015

Talking about Floatel Hotel which is situated nearby river Ganga, is just one of most romantic destination for lovers or newly married couples. Try to get room facing towards the river, you'll feel the beauty of nature at your doorstep. Another thing to experience is the open restaurant on the top floor, you can spend some quality time there with your loved ones. Apart from this other features of the hotel are average and manageable. Thanks Kolkata for such a romantic and unforgettable experience. Looking to visit again.
