Just came back from a 3 Days 2 Night stay at Hotel Puri. I had no idea what to expect because I did not plan this trip ; my fiancee did. The exterior of this hotel does not do it justice, I became slightly weary as to what to expect when I noticed the shabby exterior. BUT, i was in for a pleasant surprise.
We had no troubles checking in. It was very smooth and fast. There was a huge christmas tree in the middle of the lobby which ,made us feel right at home. We were shown to our rooms promptly.
Room: The room itself was pretty basic. We stayed in the superior suite. It was small-sized and we had a pretty decent shower. What surprised me was that we were given tooth brushes, hair dryers and even newspapers every morning. Mostly, when we stayed in other hotels, these small details were forgotten, given that we were budget travellers, so it was nice to have these little details to be taken care of.
However, the room did come with it's flaws. I constantly was bitten my mosquitoes. I probably became a mosquito serial killer by now, We did not have much of a view, once we opened the window, all we could see was the other rooms and mosquitoes would rush in. We could also hear people walking up and down the corridors constantly.
Breakfast: It was alright. Not too much variety but the place where breakfast was held was very nice. I think it was called the heliconia gardens or something like that.
Location: As mentioned by many others, the location is great. The hotel gives out free walking maps , so u can just grab one and explore the whole of Jonker Street together with another map of snacks and food. We had a blast exploring Malacca on our own. Jonker Street is just a stone's throw away from the hotel.
It was definitely a pleasant surprise! :)
