Dream Cochin is more of a business hotel. The building is on a main road, with a small porch and limited parking, but is quite attractive once you step inside. What greets you the moment you enter the lobby is an unusual steel sculpture of 4 elephants and some revolving 'disco' lights in the ceiling. I was staying overnight on my way to Gurgoan from Munnar and was upgraded to a suite (since they were hoping to win my company's account , I was told by my local guy). The suite is compact with a functional living room with a workstation and an LCD TV with a couple of sofa chairs.( All in white ). The decor is quite contemporary and room was well maintained. The bedroom had a queen bed and another LCD, (though fixed at a slightly inconvenient angle for viewing from the bed). As some reviewers have mentioned, the room provides an interesting gadget (more of a toy for grown ups) that can control the lighting in the room with 4 different settings, including the 'relaxing' blue one. Bathroom was well laid out with decent quality toiletries and great shower cubicle including a rain shower and massage shower.
The buffet in the restaurant was an okay one. Decent variety but not an elaborate one, especially for the vegetarians. Indian breads took quite some time to arrive. The breakfast buffet was filling, though I had a similar experience with the omlette. The staff was in too much of a rush to clear the dishes as I found my half consumed omlette missing when I returned after refilling the juice in about 15 seconds :-)
Overall a nice place and I wouldn't mind staying again on a business visit.
