Travel Blogs from Bangkok
The Asian adventure begins! After three weeks (at least) of careful planning I headed to Stirling Station to catch the train to Glasgow Queen Street & link up with the Airport Shuttle. Everything on time & hassle free - good start! Both Dubai & Bangkok flights were uneventful & pretty much turbulence free (always a bonus!). This was …
So, it comes to the last day. We had a late breakfast - they stop serving at 11am here which is very civilised we thought. We then got into a taxi intending to go to Wat Pho and the reclining Buddha. The driver clearly didn't want to take us and asked a totally stupid price and then agreed on condition we went to his cousin's brother's friend's …
We reluctantly left our island loveliness at midday today. We took a speedboat to Laem Sok pier on the mainland and hit the road to Bangkok via Trat. We had flights booked from Trat to Bangkok but it meant staying in Trat for 5 hours and nobody we had spoken to suggested that there was anything to see or do there. We decided to get a taxi and go by …

Sawasdee (Hallo)! Dag 1
Vel etter en behagelig flytur på ca 10 og en halv time møtte vi friske, opplagte og mette (etter varme nystekte pannekaker fra flyets rullende buffèt) på Bangkok Internasjonale flyplass Suvarnabhumi. Må Innrømme at livet på "første klasse” passer meg akkurat passe……Ja sånn må det nesten være ville …

Very nice hotel, with good value for money. Hotel has free Tuk-tuk FROM the hotel to nearest main street. Do NOT buy tours from the tour desk in the lobby. We did not get what we ordered!

Historical Traveler Reviews Dream Bangkok
I was surprised at how nice this hotel was. It was everything you would expect from a boutique hotel. It has all the services you would expect from a 5-star hotel but in a much more comfortable fashion. The restaurant had great service and great food although I did feel the dinner menu was a bit limited. I like the bar lounge area and they had 2 for 1 happy hours which made it even better. The workout area was small but functional and enough to get a good workout.
I talked to the GM and they are in the process of expanding some of the services as they just purchased a serviced apartment location nearby and so I think they will start sharing services with that property.
An excellent boutique hotel around the corner from trendy Supper Bed Nightclub.. We stayed one night and it was perfect!! The facilities and staff are everything you want from a bourtique hotel.
This hotel is perfect after a long day shopping - big comfortable bed with crisp sheets and a flat screen tv.. Highly recommended!
The only negative I have is the lack of natural light although in urban Bangkok this is only expected when you go outside. Great bathroom amenities (Mulberry), although not very strong shower pressure.
The staff at this hotel are very well trained, friendly and far from pretentious.
Business Traveler's Dream
From the airport greeting and transport to the friendly, efficient and gracious hotel staff, every aspect of this hotel served the needs of this business traveler beautifully.
The in-room ammenities included complimentary wireless internet, flat screen tv, docking station for an ipod, multiple bottles of fresh water, a clean (and always empty) workout room, a fabulous spa and a restaurant of superb quality.
The hotel is conveniently located near two Skytrain stops and the staff went to above and beyond to assist me with directions, suggestions and friendly service.
The food was incredible. I ate breakfast every day and enjoyed at least two dinners at the hotel.
A wonderful "home away from home" I highly recommend it.
THE GOOD:We arrived at the dream at about 11.30am and was checked in and in our room by 11.35am. Fast,efficient and friendly reception and hotel staff.Decor was excellent......room service was good....and staff from hotel make us feel like home. Love the "blue light" effect in the room. Clean room n I always look forward to the surprise deserts they put in the room after they make it up.:-) Staff was very knowledgable about the local area. And their english was very decent. "THE BAD" : If you are expecting a buffet breakfast in the morning like i did then you would be sorely disappointed.You choose from sets in breakfast menu. But the freshly squeezed orange juice was great.Walls in room is incredibly thin.We are on the 5th floor n we can hear the music from the hotel's club on the 2nd floor at like 1am......then we heard our "neighbours" TV all night....and also talkin n whispering in the hallway all day n night. Room could be abit bigger too.The location of hotel is our biggest compliment.hotel is all the way to the back of an alleyway....feels like I got to walk thru the thai "ghetto" to get to this beautiful hiden gem. Overall though it was a wonderful experiance n we would def come back to this hotel if we drop by bangkok again,.
We arrived in Bangkok at midnight on New Year's Eve and the Dream Hotel sent a car and driver to meet us. We checked into the fully-booked hotel around 1 am, the hotel staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, and room service delivered an incredible meal of pad Thai and chilled Chilean white wine at 2 am. We were in Room 709--a large and comfortable corner room with a big shower stall in the bathroom. We loved the hotel decor altogether. Lunch the next day in the hotel restaurant was superb: from the decor in the bar we could have been in Milan--it was so gorgeous, and the food was delicious. Then we had a fabulous massage for two at the hotel spa. A perfect way to see in the new year! I had stayed at the Dream Hotel in New York last year and must say that the one in Bangkok is far superior!
I have just stayed 4 nights at Dearm Bangkok and have to say that I have enjoyed my stay immensely.
I had booked to stay two nights at the new Dream Hotel in Bangkok for two nights for pleasure as I love small designer style places with a difference. Never having stayed near Sukhumvit area, I was a little worried about whether I would find the hotel (especially after reading previous review). However I came well preprared with an excellent map which was emailed to me from the reservations department upon request.
The Dream Hotel in Bangkok may not be the perfect sybaritic dream, but it comes close. Just opened a few wks before I ck'd in, the hotel is consciously hip, trendy and "au courant." That said, the interior public places are small, personal and almost homey-- despite the self-conscious (and a bit strange) glam decor of the lobby.
