Billed as eco-friendly this hotel floats on the Hooghly river between the two main bridges. Some of the eco-friendly characteristics are a little dubious but the staff are friendly and provide excellent service. The room was basic but comfortable and clean. Always go for the river view though mind out for passing passenger boats! The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from BBD Bagh and 20 minutes from Chowringhee. This suited us as we preferred be away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area but still in easy reach. If you prefer to have everything on your doorstep perhaps this isn't for you. We enjoyed our stay at the The Floatel, especially as we were there over Diwali and got to experience the fireworks going off on the other side of the river. An impressive sight.
