I stayed at the hotel last month it was a comfortable stay though services like room service and staff's behaviour at the reception needs improvement though the front office manager is a courteous gentleman.

We were utterly disappointed. First the positive points: Location is good on the main...

Had a fun lunch for Bijoya Dashami during Durga Puja! They had decorated the restaurant in ethnic bengali style....Lovely view of Ganges from the large glass windows..AC interiors...They had a sumptuous buffet spread for lunch but we had settled for a la carte, and the food was too good. You can stroll in the multi-storied deck area and take pics...

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"...
