We stayed at Dream Hotel as a couple on July 31, 2014. Initially thought it would be another concrete and glass building but from the moment that we entered the hotel our experience was different. The staff who received us with a smile, the ambience, the room decor - simply superb and finally the food which was served in their restaurant - Excellently Delicious. The service was par excellence. Would love to stay at Dream Hotel again.

Room Tip: The water Body facing rooms are all superb. We stayed in one.

Stayed in a suite on the 18th floor at Dream Hotel, Ernakulam and boy, was I impressed? Not at first sight though as the car pulled into the realtively small patio. Once inside, the statue of the leaping elephants set the tone. The suite was really different, stylish and yet very cosy and comfortable. The diffused blue lighting gave the rooms a modern feel.The crisp linen and the clean toilet plus toiletries added to the new feel.

Breakfast was at Keshia, a youtful place and the buffet was good, though it could be better. I also tried room service and the masala dosa with accompaniments had the traditional South Indian taste. Mainland China is another restaurant in the hotel though I did not try it. High Bar on the rooftop and a swimming pool at that level adds to the grandeur of this hotel. A well-equipped gym is available though it opens a wee bit late in the morning.

If there is one area of improvement, a major one at that, is the quality of staff. Though they are good and try to be helpful, guess there is the need for training to make them better ambassadors for this hotel. Frankly I was surprised to see a classy hotel like this in Ernakulam and look forward to another stay here in the future.

Dream Hotel at Ernakulam is a beautiful and tastefully built property. Its a new Hotel and is complete package in terms of comfortable stay. The rooms are spacious and very lively. The bathrooms are also spacious with bathtub. Wi-Fi on chargeable basis is available in all rooms. Beds are comfy and sleep quality is excellent. View for the rooms facing the water body is scenic. There is a Gym, swimming pool, coffee shop and a well know Chinese restaurant - Mainland China inside the Hotel !!! The breakfast spread is awesome. Overall for the price charged its an excellent place to stay irrespective of the reason - Business or Leisure !!! Go for it.

Room Tip: Please choose higher floor rooms above 15th floor facing the lake.

Stayed at Dream Cochin last year. Experience was good the last time, and great this time.

The setting is not near as pretty as the Vivanta by Taj or Le Meridien properties, but the trade-off is the convenient location in the heart of the city. If you're driving anywhere, Kochi traffic is brutal, so this makes a big difference. The hotel is more reasonably-priced than other five-star hotels with similar amenities.

The room itself was nice, if a little funky with the blue mood lighting option. My wife and I loved the bathroom. Even though there's no bathtub, the rainmaker shower is really nice.

Service is excellent. A specials thanks to Jasmine at breakfast and Joycee with Guest Relations. When Joycee found out that it was my wife's birthday the second night of our stay, she surprised us with a birthday cake.

Breakfast is good with a lot of options. Gym is better than most at a hotel. Didn't have time to try the rooftop swimming pool, but definitely wanted to.

This was my first stay at Dream Cochin and like it's counterpart Dream Bangkok, the hotel is a delight in Cochin. It has everything one expects from a star property - great location, rooms, restaurants and a gym! The staff is friendly, efficient, the rooms are 100% sound proof ensuring a comfortable sleep. The TV size is relatively small given the viewing distance and should be upgraded!

I and a couple of colleagues stayed at the hotel few days back. Though I was a bit apprehensive of staying here in the context of other regular names like Le Meridien, I went away very impressed.

The hotel has a contemporary feeling - everything shiny, new and clean. The room lights with all the fancy blue lighting do tend to misbehave with the myriads of controls - no complaints but perhaps a bit over the top. The staff is very polite and the housekeeping was super prompt with a couple of requests we had.

What took the cake was the restaurant - Keshia. 8-9 of us had dinner & drinks there and the local food was dished out in spectacular form. We had a couple of fish & beef dishes which were done really well Kerala style. Most visitors may not level of adulteration of drinks in Kerala so it is almost always advisable to stick to brands like Bud which you would get the original form in Keshia and other star places.

We also had breakfast in Keshia and I was really surprised at the well thought out Breakfast Buffet. The chef's take a lot of pride in the preparation and the Appam + Egg Coconut curry is simply divine and not to be missed. Chef Ranjan and I had a chat and the knowledge level & passion behind the job was super evident.

Will certainly stay here again.
