Dream Bangkok ♥ ♥

Bangkok has so many boutique hotels it’s so hard to choose The One.

So I just picked something new… and something blue. And something by Vikram Chatwal.

I also happen to like its name. I do it all the time. Most especially during the day.

Dream has two parts to it. The main reception, concierge, cashier and almost everything you need, including the hotel’s only restaurant, Flava, are in the main building, Dream 1.

IMG_8047Dream 2, which houses the swimming pool and Avatar Spa, is just across the
very narrow street. It is also where my room is.

The blue lights are supposed to give the room a soothing, dreamy feel, but I find them too bright so they remain off the duration of my stay. I can only sleep in pitch-darkness.

I don’t usually care about hotel stationery, but I am so taking these home.

I wake up early enough for the breakfast buffet only on the last day. (Why can’t breakfast hours extend till 1:00pm? Why?!?)

There is nothing exciting about the breakfast choices, plus a big lunch is happening soon so this is all I have:

Corn, pancake, siomai, tomato, cheeses, ham, watermelon, muesli, wheat bran, coco pops


Service at Dream, like all other establishments in Thailand, is warm and friendly. I would stay here again if only there aren’t so many other chic-looking hotels located just outside the BTS/MRT station and on the main streets (makes it so much easier to get a cab). I don’t usually mind the 5 to 10-minute walk, but in the suffocating Bangkok heat, I’d rather not. Now if only Dream offers tuk-tuk service to guests like the serviced apartment next door…
