Usually a non chain hotel, with a name like Dream would lead you to expect a wannabe that didn't quite make the cut, but the Dream hotel in Kochi comes as a refreshing surprise. Very modern in its decor using mostly white interiors with highlights in bright blue and green. Panache is what the hotel has. Food is as good as any big name five star can boast. Rooms are nicely sized and have all the necessities for a business traveller. The massage chair in the room was the second surprise. Having driven all the way from Coimbatore, after a hard day's work in the markets a nice massage was very very welcome.
Pool on the 26th floor, the top floor, was another surprise, with a view of the city, the sea and distant greens.
And then came the final surprise, the price! At 3500 per room night, it is a steal. I am not sure how they can keep it profitable at that price. I would have happily paid more.
Staff was young and courteous and never intrusive.
