This floating hotel has all the facilities--well furnished rooms, banquet halls, restaurants, bars, party rooms and open decks, with excellent view of the Ganges river. A must see place for all visitors.

I stayed at floatel for 1 night in May 2016 and was excited with concept of a ship anchored on water. Hotel is good with clean rooms and good food. But, the rooms are very small with little movement space, may be due to restrictions of ship size. Buffet breakfast in the restaurant has good variety of Indian and continental... More

Very small room. Not so friendly staff and would not accommodate a room with a view although hotel was quite empty. Buffet Breakfast served was very poor in quality and variety. But it was served on the deck so that made me feel better. Overall average but not worth the money, especially in a city like Kolkata

My husband and I decided to stay here for our anniversary night. We called up the hotel, made the advance payment (accommodation) and turned up around 4 pm. We were received well. They have a parking space, so we went by bike and parked it there for the night. After the reception, you reach the actual hotel via a gangway.... More

Stayed there for 3 nights. Faced trouble with wifi all the time. Food and drinks were good. A bit far from night life. Stuffs were a bit dump. Room was fair. I found one thing interesting you can have margarita while watching beautiful night lights & river.

This is on ship anchored in the river Ganges. So it will give pure local flavor of stay. Have good. Staffs are in nevy dress. However late night food is big issue with this hotel. Old rail tracks are inside premises of this hotel.
