What We Love

  • Daily buffet breakfast and two free bottles of water are included in the Jetsetter rate
  • The buffet breakfast runs until 11 a.m., so you can sleep off those wild nights on the town
  • The Oasis spa offers traditional Thai massages
  • Mood lighting helps lull you to sleep after a long day
  • Superstocked minibar in both the bedroom and lounge area, including a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and Thai-style Pringles

What To Know

  • Less than a five-minute walk from both the SkyTrain and underground stations
  • Dream is within walking distance of many of the clubs on Sukhumvit Soi 11
  • On-site gym is relatively compact but serviceable

Overview

The Review

Dream taps into the playfully chic side of Bangkok. Mood lighting lends a nightclub vibe, from the lobby on up to the guestrooms (blue tones are said to help induce sleep).

The rooms are split between two neighboring buildings, Dream 1 and 2, opened in 2006 and 2007, respectively. The hotel’s facilities are split between the towers, so book in Dream 1 or in a suite in Dream 2 for easiest access to the pool and gym. Otherwise, you’ll have to cross a small road.

As you would expect, given the hotel’s name, they take sleep very seriously here. The rooms are focused on low-slung beds piled high with down comforters and pillows swathed in 300-thread-count linens.{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/3147/prop-71160-1347632436-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Fun after dark can be had at the hotel’s bar or the small but sleek rooftop pool.”}

You may find it hard to turn in, though, given the hotel’s location, a short walk or cab ride from Bangkok’s famous nightlife. Also fun after dark is the hotel’s small but sleek rooftop pool, with its funky underwater lighting and twinkling views of the city (note: lack of shade during daytime hours can be a problem). Take a swim, grab a cocktail and order Thai comfort food from the hotel’s Flava Restaurant.

Dream’s location, on Soi 15 in the Asok/Nana neighborhood, is convenient, but it can feel a bit touristy. However, you’re a five-minute walk from both the SkyTrain and underground stations, making transportation a snap.

After six years, the Dream lacks a bit of the edge it had at first, but the friendly staff, location and generous rooms offer a welcome respite from the urban jungle of Bangkok.

Amazing hotel in a great location
Reviewed 18 hours ago

The Dream is split into two sections, the main part has the restaurant and bar on the second floor and the other has the roof top pool and pool bar.
Location is perfect for the MRT and BTS stations for getting around, There are plenty of local shops and eateries and the Terminal 21 Mall just a short walk away. The hotel also far enough from the main road to keep the noise of traffic down which really is 24/7 in Bangkok the city never sleeps.
The rooms are large and Air con works a treat, beds are really comfy I really did have a great night sleep.

This hotel is very convenient transportation, whether it is to the subway or empty iron is a good choice, the room is clean, friendly staff, breakfast was good, the only drawback is the room my friend lives in, air conditioning seems to fault

Disappointing stay
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Koh Samui. The location itself is great, very central but the rooms are in dire need of an update, carpeted floors and old wood - there seemed to be a damp smell in the room constantly and the sound proofing wasn't great. We could hear a very noisy Arab group on our floor which kept us awake a lot. We wouldn't stay here again unless the rooms were updated.

Still good after all these years

Last week, I went back to Dream Hotel in Bangkok for the umpteenth time and had yet another delightful stay. This time around I brought my entire family – 10 of us – and all of them were impressed with all aspects of the hotel from reservations, reception, rooms, f&b and most of all, hospitality of their staff from the top manager to the housekeeping chambermaid.

Their attention to details is immaculate: the hotel is more than 10 years old and everything is so well maintained. Take their funky décor of mosaic tiles. The cement gaps on their toilet mosaic tiles are still white, and they still look new. Mind you, their funky interior design all over the hotel is not something easy to upkeep.

For me, the two most important aspects of a good hotel besides the service are the bed and the bathroom. Dream Hotel’s bed is firm, and they use high quality bed linen. Next to my bed at home, I have my best sleep here. Talk about sweet Dreams. I love my shower strong and their rain shower option makes you want to stay in the shower forever! Their amenities are actually more than I had expected and of high quality. Their environment consciousness is evident with their glass water bottles and cloth laundry bags.

I travel for work and therefore usually not impressed by hotel breakfasts. But Flava’s at Dream Hotel is something I look forward to. They have a very ample spread for a boutique hotel and yet not the typically international breakfast buffet. I particularly love their offering of a khao tom (rice porridge) and noodle soup with minced chicken and crunchy vegetables. If you rather not your eggs scrambled nor fried sunny side up, the kitchen will whip up a wonderful kai jeow (Thai omelette, crispy on the edges) which is a meal in itself!

I wonder if they inform the kitchen about the nationality of their hotel guests because they always have a Singaporean dish when I visit eg Hainanese chicken rice or bak kut teh (pork rib soup)!

Sometimes I ask myself if I’m boring and keep staying at Dream Hotel when I visit Bangkok? But can you blame me?

Excellent BUT careful

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and is an excellent hotel in every sense. Good stay, staff, breakfast and easy to commute as it is central. One word of caution if you drink the provided bottled water(Evian) you will be paying over 100% of the normal rate which is absurd. Also if you chose to use the concierge services be careful. We wanted a taxi to visit the floating market and the reception staff gave a price of 3000 Bhat. When we said the price is high and after some negotiation the price came down to 1200 Bhat! Mind you this rate was given by one of the dream hotel staff. So be careful as tourists are an easy prey for even the hotel staff and negotiate.
