“Dream in Kearal, India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We spent two nights in this property during our Kearal Holidays during June 2014. The first night we were in a room which was very small with bit cramped bath room up but modern bath room. It was nice of the hotel manager to upgrade us to a very comfortable and spacious room in the morning. The room had amazing view of the city, it was having all the modern facilities, very comfortable bed and spacious bath room.
The roof top barbeque is really wonderful and amazing.
The staff is really wonderful and they are always willing to go extra mile to help out the guest to ensure a memorable stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher floor facing towards the front of the hotel are better ones.

We stayed at the Dream Hotel in Kochi for a weekend trip to Kerela and it was fantastic. The staff could not possibly have been more friendly or helpful. They were extremely accommodating and were able to help with every question and request. They even had a dedicated customer service specialist (Joicy) who knew us by name and greeted us each time we walked through the door. She was amazing!

The rooms were comfortable and clean and had every modern convenience. The hotel restaurant was excellent - the breakfast buffet has everything you could ask for and is reasonably priced. The hotel gym and pool were in fantastic condition and there is even a rooftop bar that overlooks part of the city. The internet worked perfectly - just note that it is not complimentary. You do need to pay a fee to use it, but once you're connected, it works anywhere in the hotel.

There is not much to do right around the hotel, so you will need to take an auto or a taxi to the Fort Kochi area if you're visiting as a tourist, but those are easy to come by and the trip is not much of a hassle at all. When you're in Fort Kochi, all of the drivers know of the Dream Hotel, so it's very easy to get back.

We would definitely recommend this hotel as a great place to stay for a trip to Kochi!

Room Tip: A room with two twin beds was perfect for a weekend get away for two friends!

Stayed here over the new year. The hotel is very modern - the decor has a really fresh feel to it. The location is good to - about 30 minutes from major tourist destinations like fort kochi and marine drive but also close to the main city (such as lulu mall).

I must compliment the service on new years eve- we stayed in and ordered room service till the early hours.. and the service was just fantastic.

The roof top bar and swimming pool were a lot of fun and the food was always good during the 3 days we spent,

Stayed here for a night. The hotel itself is in a decent location. Check in and out was a good experience. The food at the Chinese restaurant and the kebabs on the terrace are worth a visit. Excellent food and value of money. Great gym and quality service at all levels.

If I have to give a negative, carpet in the room could do with a good shampoo or better if changed.

Will be back.

The spread was amazing from the salad bar to the dessert counter! The food was sumptuous as well.. But the ambience of the restaurant was not to cope with its reputation. The staff was courteous and helpful.. All in all, it was a fine dining experience.

We stayed there for one night in last December, starting our honeymoon tour in Kerala.
Excellent hotel. Nice design, I liked specially the lighting solution around the bed in the room. Clean, nice bathroom. The souvenir shop is very nice, you can hardly resist to buy something. Food was also excellent. For lunch we tried avial in the a la carte restaurant, for dinner we called room service and my husband tried fish curry. Since that time i have been trying to get somewhere the same taste of paneer tikka and sweet lassi, but unable to. We would definitely like to come back here once again.

It is an oasis in the heart of Cochin City, with facilities that many similar-rated hotels would not even dream about having. Everything was clean and tidy, and the people so friendly that attracted immediately my attention. The only thing that I would look for being developed, is the presence of an indoor bar/cafeteria that the traveler will use to relax and enjoy some quiet time.

Room Tip: Select one that has that astonishing and relaxing body massage chair!!!!
