Floatel Hotel – Calcutta, India
The Floatel Hotel is set on a riverfront property located in the center of Calcutta. It houses 56 guestrooms that are decked out with traditional shipboard décor and appointed with modern amenities characteristic of four-star accommodations. Guests at the hotel are treated to a commanding view of the river and the city, which makes it a suitable option for hosting special events. The hotel features three open-air banquet areas to accommodate these social gatherings. For business functions, it offers the use of its indoor conference rooms and meeting facilities. Corporate travelers are also welcome to use the Floatel’s full-service business center as needed.
The city of Calcutta is the second-largest city in India and the capital of West Bengal. The city treats tourists to such historic wonders as British Raja-era gems, old colleges, and sprawling gardens. As the cultural center of India, Calcutta has been known to give birth to some of the most well-known writers, filmmakers, poets, and Nobel Prize winners from the country.
All the rooms and restaurants at the hotel overlook nearby colonial buildings such as the Calcutta High Court (India’s former Supreme Court which was established in 1757), the Central Secretariat Building, and the Town Hall, as well as the center of International Cricket, the famous Eden Gardens. From the Floatel travelers can easily access other attractions, including the Indian museum, the Raj Bhavan (the Governor’s Mansion), and the Maidan, Calcutta’s version of New York City’s Central Park. All these sites are a good five-minute drive away from the hotel.
With its distinct riverside view and proximity to interesting attractions, the Floatel Hotel is ideal for tourists looking for a different kind of accommodation experience but who are unwilling to sacrifice comfort and convenience.
