Find & book the best hotels & hostels to work remote from

Remote Dream lets you find & book the best hotels & hostels to work remote from.The platform helps by bringing together all locations to one place. Besides that, locations are qualified based on how suitable they are for remote working, if the internet quality is good enough and whether there is an active community of remote workers.

RemoteDream aims to speak the language of the remote worker. An example is the intuitive search filters to find the right locations. Users can filter on locations that will be warmer than 15 degrees Celsius in winter. Another example is a filter that will show all locations that are in the EU timezone. This should help remote workers from companies like MessageBird that have policies that allow working remotely, as long as you are in the same time zone. Another helpful feature are reviews, which will be connected to the job title of the reviewer. This way users will see way more relevant reviews, not those of anyone but specifically from remote workers.

RemoteDream is trying to become more of an information hub for remote workers than a travel site. This is an important distinction as knowing about working spaces, desks, internet speed, and other work-related priorities, is prioritized over the pools, shuttle to the airport, etc. This is a good first start and is clearly a work in progress.

There are no reviews rather they are showing a number aggregated from Google reviews. The super-light font discloses this under the bold font of the "4.7 (127 reviews) line." Additionally, a slider of so-called reviews (3) does not appear to be genuine reviews. This turns out not to be true as I went from the Draper house Bali to the Eaton Workshop Hong Kong page. On Eaton Workshop, you will see "no reviews from RemoteDream users. This seems like a minor issue but given the basis for this site is knowledge and feedback for the right place to work, the review display/information should be improved.

Using Eaton in Hong Kong as a reference (as I've been there), the amount of information on this place is limited. What will happen is the user (today) will use this app to get some ideas/good narratives and then drop the name of the place into Chrome/Edge to get more data. If the partner is providing the information or this is some type of data screen scrape, this could be problematic overall because, today, RemoteDream doesn't keep me on the site. As mentioned, I know Eaton and there is not enough information to allow me to decide to go there for remote work on RemoteDream. I'm sure this will improve as the goal would be to keep me on the site and complete my booking(s) on the site. It should be noted that the pictures could use a little AI work of some type. The Eaton has a lot of pictures, yes, but no desks, no workspace areas, and three pictures of beds. Again, content needs laser-focus on stuff that matters and not a zillion pictures of hip people and a yoga studio.

This has potential and I wish the makers much success.
Hi Rick,

Thanks for taking the time to walk through our website and sharing your precise feedback. We totally agree that there is still a lot to be done from our side in terms of generating reviews and providing sufficient and relevant content. We are a 2 man team for now so it is a step by step approach.

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and we will give these topics priority!
