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...

I stayed at Dream Cochin while on a business trip just a few weeks ago and I must say that I have really liked my stay here.
The rooms are quite cozy and the bathrooms are really well done. The room and the bathroom looks like a typical american hotel and felt good!
Service is excellent and the breakfast was nice.

Will definitely stay here on my next visit to Cochin.

I was lucky to have a family hookup here, so my friends and I got a good room at a good rate. It was nice to stay at a higher end hotel after staying at a lot of budget hotels during my trip. The hotel was located in a good spot and had good amenities.

I doubt I'd stay here if I didn't have a deal. They charged for wifi and you could only use one device at a time.

Room Tip: Have an internal hookup. Haha

I stayed in dream hotel for 3 months. Welcome and reception was awesome, rooms were good with all the necesssary amneties, staff is very hospitable.
But the most awesome thing was Chef Asif's food. He is a wonderfull guy who cooks the most delicious food i ate across India.I was worried whether i would be able to find good north indian food in Kerala or not, but then i was served with such food by asif which i even didn't ate anywhere in north india. Except being a good chef, he is a brilliant manager who ensured that my food as well as my overall stay is comfortable in dream. I had the choice of Taj gateway and Oberoi also to stay in cochin but every time in those 3 months i chose dream only, cause i didn't want to give a miss to Asif's food and hospitabilty.
Hotel's GM Mr. Divakar is a very down to earth and friendly guy, who is running this hotel with amazing coordination. I played holi with their staff, which otherwise an unknown affair in cochin.
Any issue in Dreams, any issue in cochin or kerala, or any query, Fino is the encyclopedia in Dream hotel. Catch Fino and all your queries will be answered & your comfortable stay will be ensured in dream.
So overall it was an amazing experience to be in dream hotel, it stood to it's name.
I am going back again there tomorrow, and can confidantely recommend this hotel to all my friends and anyone else going to cochin.
