This is my 3rd visit in 3 months to kochi and this time i chose to experiment by staying for 2 nights at Dream Kochi. Not sure how it would be but was surprised by the rooms decor however i feel that the cupboards inside need a makeover and so do their carpets. The room that i stayed was spacious and well equipped.
I personally did not like the flashy Neon bulbs and the similar blue colors were used inside the rooms. Too much off White sometimes made me feel colorless as well. I did use their Gym and it was top notch. Their food was decent and well priced as i was veg so my options were lesser. They have got a wonderful entrance over the reception with bright lights and few statues around. Had to skip their breakfast as it didn't come along with our Business package. Wifi is also chargeable and we need to keep logging in continuously as well.

In all a decent stay but something went a miss to give it a 5.

We stayed there a night on route to Alleppey. Very clean and neat hotel with excellent service. You are welcomed by staff who give you a drink and let you relax as they prepare the room and documents. The rooms are a good size and the staff is very friendly. Had an amazing buffet breakfast the following morning. The Chef was walking about among the guests taking requests and providing an excellent service. A wide variety of food and juices, including special orders made instantly.

Stayed here for 3 nights in January , 3 people in 2 rooms. After having written a letter to the Manager Mr Shukla , explaining that my wife and I would be with my 85 year old Mother –in-Law and required rooms close to each other, Mr shukla upgraded us to club rooms and ensured our rooms were next to each other.

Our welcome to the hotel and check in was very cordial and swift. The rooms were large and very comfortable.

Every single member of staff I interacted with were professional, kind, friendly, respectful and always went the extra mile to ensure our stay was the best it could possibly be. I had one small problem whilst we were there which is to small to even mention really but I relate it here because upon hearing of this very minor problem one of the day managers informed me that, and I quote, “A small problem for you sir, is far from minor for us”. Needless to say it was rectified almost immediately.

I will not this time commend any particular member of staff because to do so would be unfair to all the other members of staff who were to a woman and a man, truly excellent representatives and ambassadors for their hotel. The higher management should be proud of their staff and proud of their own training and recruitment programme.

The amenities we used were all ‘top notch’. The roof top bar and grill we used each day. It has a good selection of beers, spirits and wines. The Indian Sula red wine is a good Cabernet/shiraz red. The Mohito cocktails were very good. The Chinese restaurant was the best we had tried since a trip to Singapore some years back. The Indian/fusion cuisine restaurant ‘Keisha’ was also good value and good food.

The roof top pool was very welcome after a few hours of the dusty streets of Kochi and fort Cochin

The reason for choosing this top class hotel for our first full three days in India was to be able to acclimatise and rest somewhat, after our 26 hour journey. The hotel and it’s staff fulfilled all our requirements and went above and beyond what we expected.

I heartily recommend this hotel.

We stayed here 3 nights and found this hotel pretty good. Clean and tidy. The only things that were annoying were the flashing neon light through the night in the ceiling, and being charged for wifi. It's just a pain having to log in and go through the process.

We stayed here for one night ahead of our flight home following a tour of Kerala. The hotel was a refreshing change from our other stays, it had a distinct 'city' feel and was decorated in a modern minimalist style. We were greeted from our long journey with a refreshing drink which we appreciated. The room was lovely and had a view of the city. We ate in the hotel restaurant and both of our meals were delicious (grilled prawns and grilled snapper) and well priced. Alcohol was served, even in the restaurant, which was nice as we found many hotels in Kerala did not. So it was nice to toast the end of our holiday with a drink. All the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful, and check in / out was pain free. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed there for new year eve with 2 kids, during our 2 weeks tour around south india.

Even if the location is not the best for visiting Cochin, the hotel is really great. The service was excellent, and they gave us room far from the event they had that night so that the children could sleep quietly.

Room are really great and modern.

The restaurant was quite ok, even if a bit expensive on the evening for the food provided.

We were upgraded to a suite room at no extra cost and the room was huge!! Bathroom was lovely and the room was modern. Carpet was quite worn and looked a bit stained. Located on busy mg road we used it as a base to explore the area. The pool area was lovely and we had it to ourselves to swim and lie by! Drinking at the high bar was nice, although a shame that all bars close at 11pm... Was able to take away beer to room tho!!! Main thing that let this hotel down was no free wifi.
