Although some reviews showed promise, this place was a nightmare. First floor room was incredibly noisy throughout the night, from other guests, staff, and discussions outside in the hallway, a loud phone down the hall that rang all night long, and people using the central stairs which reverberated throughout the entire steel barge with no sound deadening. Perhaps the second... More

Absolutely brilliant idea to have an ocean liner type experience right at the heart of Kolkata. Minutes away from the business district, the experience of using a gangway to enter a floating (anchored) ship, with modern rooms and a beautiful restaurant on the top deck is really thrilling. My wife and I had the good fortune of seeing the entire... More

The restaurant is definitely pricey....however this is not a place where you come to eat on any given day. What makes this place special is the environment and the surroundings. Having a candlelight dinner with your special someone or discussing sports with a group of friends whilst enjoying the cool breeze of the Ganges...this place is worth every penny. Didn't... More

On bank of river Ganga, it is one of the excellent location for any hotel. Hospitality which does not require an investment, must be taken care immediately. Hygiene and facilities may be upgraded for a fresh look and feel. I will rate overall stay as fairly good!

I had gone to this hotel with great hopes after reading positive reviews on TA, but my hopes fell flat once I stepped into the place. Starting with rooms - pretty average with poor fit and finish. Peeling paint everywhere. Small sized room and washroom. Toilets not clean. It was noisy throughout the night I couldn't sleep properly. Restaurant on... More

I have stayed on two occasions for business meetings. Staying in a floating hotel is a unique experience which one cannot get anywhere else. Add to this good buffet spreads & very good service by entire staff. Although the rooms are rather small, but staying on a ship you tend to understand this part. Excellent views from the deck &...

This hotel is on the Hooglie river (part of thr Ganges). The rooms are small but clean and tidy. My window looked out onto the river so I was able to watch the weeds and flower garlands come and go on the tide.
