The Floatel Hotel, a 4 star urban resort, floats on the River Hooghly only a hundred yards from the shore. The Floatel on the Hooghly today, between the Howrah and Hooghly Bridges, brings back that history in its splendor. The Floatel does not move, it remains in its wonderful location on the edge of the river with spectacular views of the river and the charms of this old colonial cultural city.
