“Lovely building”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

This is a lovely building - the ground floor reception area and outdoor gardens and amenities are a delight. The room we stayed in was good, clean and quiet. The food is very good and the breakfasts are good. The hotel is situated within an easy walk to all the sights. Staff are very professional, friendly and helpful and can arrange most things for you. The hotel provides maps of activities, sights and places to eat within the historic precinct free of charge. A very comfortable place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior twin which was very comfortable and plenty of room, but for a longer stay I...

I loved staying here and will go back again. A quaint little old Nonya building. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good.
It's right in the center of Melaka and you can walk to any of the key sites in minutes. Fantastic value for money

Room Tip: Any will do

I stayed here for 1 night in January 2014. The exterior and ground floor are charming but there is nothing about the rooms which I would call 'boutique'. The walls and doors are paper thin (I was woken up at 7am by the family vacating the room next door to me), the furniture and interior decor are basic and dull and there were gaps in the cheap laminate flooring. This is a budget hotel and provided you feel like you are paying budget hotel prices then you'll be happy. I personally won't rush back to this hotel but at the same time I don't feel like the price I paid was unacceptable. Breakfast was average.

The hotel located just behind Jonker street which is very convenient and strategic.
Without advanced booking, i managed to got a standard room available for a night.

Free WiFi is available however the signal is very weak in room.

My room is located at first floor, so when i open the window i can only see air-conditioner compressor. That is still not the problem, the problem is there are mosquitoes in the room. So i do not have a good sleep.

You need to be quick if you want to have hot shower because hot water may turn cold after running for a while.

No sound proof as i can hear people pass by and talking. The worst is kid running and chasing.

Room Tip: Ask for room that at corner if you don't want to disturb by people walk pass. May try room at hi...

We spent three nights there before leaving on Christmas day 2013.
This was our third visit to the Puri and it was so nice. Our room was on the third floor with a niceview over all of the old roof tops which have so much character and history.
It's a bit of a pain climbingthe stairs to the third floor but worth it. Melaka is such in interesting place to visit and staying at the Puri makes it moreso.
Breakfast was lovely as usual and the superior room was spacious, comfortable and clean.
We would recommend the Puri to anyone visiting Melaka.

Room Tip: The superior rooms on the third floor are worth it providing you can climg the stairs

We spent 2 nights at Hotel Puri. The hotel is centrally located and had a very welcoming reception area complete with Christmas tree. Our room was quite small but nicely laid out and very clean. The courtyards were well maintained and pretty. We really liked the breakfast and enjoyed eating in the courtyard, especially as we were up quite early and there were little fairy lights lighting the area. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: There is no lift so request a ground floor room if you have lots of luggage or don't fancy stair...

Stayed in this boutique hotel for 2 nights during my recent Melaka trip. Great location just adjacent to the Jonker St & within walking distance to the historical attractions in Melaka.

Was really impressed by the Peranakan front of this historic house, the façade & interior of the reception area were well conserved & showed plenty of Peranakan character. Well... that was where it stopped. The interior of the room we stayed was just ordinary at best. The mattresses were well worn & were on the soft side... The bathroom was also not impressive as the fittings were giving way, had to fix back a towel rack when the bar fell off.

However, one thing I liked about the place is the breakfast in the courtyard. It was nice to have breakfast surrounded by the greenery in the shade.

With these in mind, I reckon more have to be done to up the ratings to the hotel especially on the interiors. That would make this property perfect.
