“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

Our family of 13 stayed in this hotel for a night. a big MAX store is just 5 mins away from the hotel (beside). 2 good (one cheap and another a lil pricey but restaurant kind) are about 10 mins walk away from the hotel (check with the hotel staff). Fort Cochin is about 25mins drive from this hotel.

We were blown away by the service and the rooms. Check in was smooth. Ruby, the Asst Front Desk Manager (if I remember correctly) was very professional and her spoken English was really good.She had a very pleasant personality. We were then brought up our rooms by a very sweet hotel staff Deepika who gave us a short tour of our rooms. The rooms were WOW!. We had remote controls to change the lightings. LCD tvs with wide variety of channels which will put many 5 star hotels to shame. Very comfortable beds. Well stocked bathroom. Small corners where u can sit on the sofa chairs and relax. We on the neon blue lights for a good night sleep. Breakfast had wide variety. Gym was good.
Special Thanks to Ruby and George (front desk manager). My husband had sprained his leg and we had called for a housecall doctor late night. We were advised to go to the hospital nearby but my husband was reluctant. in 5 mins time, Ruby and George were outside our room! They had come to personally enquire about my husband's condition and convinced my husband to visit the hospital nearby. George even followed us to the hospital (despite us telling him not to trouble himself) that late night and stayed with us to do the paperwork and even helped my husband to move around in the wheelchair. We were really blown away by their amazing service. The next day, when we checked out, Ruby and Deepika spoke to my husband and enquired on his progress.I have travelled quite a bit around Asia and have stayed in many hotels. In terms of service, Hotel Dreams wins hands down! This hotel is a must stay if you are visiting Cochin. Thumbs Up!

Room Tip: We had 5 rooms for 13 of us and all were perfect!

One word that explains Dream hotel is, Mind blowing.
The hotel itself is a treat to your eyes. The rooms have nice blue neon lighting which you can adjust according to your mood. The carpet, bed, the toilet, everything has a 5 star feel to it.
The khesha bar is perhaps the most happening disco in the whole of Kerala. and entrance is free for ppl stayin in the hotel.
Breakfast was great. Room service was prompt and food served was great too.

Personally I think this had to be one of my most memorable stay in a hotel. Staff was excellent, service was fantastic and food was mind blowing. I have to mentioned that the manager and customer executive was soo helpful and want to thank them for everything. To those looking for a hotel, all you need is to book dream hotel. That's it and can go wrong

From the time of check in to the time of check out everyone is treated with respect and courtesy. The hotel rooms are fantastic (cannot believe it is a few years old hotel). The decor is very modern, the lighting is electronically controlled and gives options of various moods that you can set it to. The room was spacious as well. Breakfast buffet was very extensive with lots of hot food options, local, Indian and international. Price is reasonable for the facilities provided. Only one thing was slightly odd in the room - the large TV is kept on a wooden cupboard at one side (not corner) of the room, which makes it a little difficult to watch from both sides of the double bed. It almost seems as if they forgot to factor in the location of the TV and had to make do with whatever space was available (it also blocks part of the window). Overall a very good hotel though. I only wish I stayed there more than one night to really enjoy the facilities.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet so you can choose any

The Dream Hotel is amazing from the moment you walk in. I love the décor. The check-in was done really quickly while we enjoyed welcome drinks. Our bags were promptly taken to our room, which is nicely decorated and well-lit as well as silent. The restaurant's food is very nice too. For a foreigner, it is very important to have options (Both Indian an continental foods). The only thing I didn't like was their internet service. I found the price too steep, but maybe that's because I'm a foreigner and I am not used to being charged such steep prices for internet access at hotels. Everything else was pleasant, since the staff is really friendly.

I stayed here for business a few days between christmas and new years 2012.
Due to some ebad experiences with flights I was in a very bad mood at arrival, but both the hotel and the staff did their absolute best to make this a pleasant stay.

Location:
The hotel is placed practically on one of the main roads going to the center of Kochi, a location that gives easy access to transport options to get you to the sights and the shopping districts of the city.

The hotel:
First impression of the hotel is very good.
Overall a very modern looking hotel with plenty of options to make a service engineer like myself feel at ease.
The lobby is very spacious and the hotell staff were very helpful at all times during our stay and the hotel also offers a transport service to get you to any location you might desire.
The hotel also offers several good restaurants and a nice roof top bar with a great view of the city.
Some aspects of the hotel brings an impression of being slightly worn, but these are only minor details. One thing that could bother me at times was that power had a tendency to fluctuare at certain times of the day. This was however only for 2 -3 times and usually only happened once or maybe twice in the early evening.

The rooms:
I had the honor of getting a very large nice room with all I could wish for to get the rest I needed before going back to work the following day.
The room offered a very large good bed adn plenty of room to relax.
The room offered some very interesting light options, they really made me smile and actually worked wonders to help me get a good night sleep.
The thing that makes me take one point from my rating is some of the details of the room seemed old and slightly ill kept. Details like the inroom doors and one of the chairs seemed like they could need an upgrade, but that is really the only thing I can complain about.

Overall impression:
Overall the hotel presents itself as a very good hotel with great service and great options for eating and drinking. For me however it was a very good place to rest and I know it is a hotel I will gladly use again when I go back here for more work.

Room Tip: Try to choose rooms with a view of the area at the rear of the hotel as these are less exposed to th...
