“Historical Hotel”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is not a 5 star hotel, this is a historical hotel.
But we like it nonetheless.
And it is bigger than I thought, the breakfast was alright, the location was fantastic, I dont have problems with parking. The staffs was friendly.

The room was ok, not so good not so bad. Doable, sleep-able.

Stayed here 3 years ago and it is just as nice as it was before. A historic hotel, which fantastic common, open spaces. Staff is wonderful, had read my emails, knew my arrival time, stored luggage until room was ready since we arrived very early, helped me find a place in Singapore to stay and couldn't have been better. 1 block off of Jonker street shopping district so is quieter but about a 2 minute walk to get there. Many restaurants nearby, shops, Museums etc. Can't go wrong with the Puri Hotel. Good value for Melaka.

receptionist knock off at 2 am, we reach at 5 am and through email was assured everything would be arranged well. Reached and the security ask us to park our car outside the hotel. We were given rooms that are some at first and some at second floor. Room is not as fantastic as the photos, bed is hard and the blanket is not covered with quilt cover. Just two covers above the blanket. Rooms with mosquitos. History room in the hotel is good. Communication and service of hotel personnel not good at all. Next day, a security said "your singapore car, get hit by the motorist ah, not our problem if u wan park here!" I replied that it was his colleague who ask me park here when the person in the email said the security would bring us to their private car park. Poor coordination and break promise. Luckily our car has got nothing wrong.

I would rather go to Baba House than Puri Hotel.

Good location, nice courtyard breakfast, most of the staff welcoming - one wasn't but maybe she was having a bad night. They kindly arranged a cab for 200 ringgit to KL for me with an awesome driver who was so interesting and nice. Breakfast is decent enough in a pretty setting and some choice of unusual sweet things among the western and Melaka/Malaysia fare. I think the experience here would be room dependent though. I arrived very late and was staying only one night which may have been the reason I was at the very end of a long corridor on the 2nd floor (there are no lifts btw but they do help you with bags) and in my room you couldn't open the shutters or the windows really as it went onto a fire escape so.. had I not just been there one night it would have been pretty depressing as it would have been dark the whole time. Rooms are clean though! Probably wouldn't recommend unless you can guarantee a good room.

The service was great, the staff local and knowledgeable. The historic room was informative and interesting. The room was clean and well presented, the maintenance of the shared spaces, like the lobby and breakfast area, was the icing on the cake for me. A good location with a parking lot down the road.
There is no elevator, since installing one would compromise the historic building. Book with this knowledge and be prepared to hike up your luggage to the 3rd floor if needed.

Junior suite was brilliant. Massage was great. Breakfast was fine and in a gorgeous courtyard. Inner courtyards are delightful. Peaceful, central to town, good service by all staff, bathroom was fab, bed was comfy. Just a delight all round. Avoid downstairs bedrooms on street front though, noisy.

The reception and common areas were super charming. Full of colonial charm and history. However when it came to give us the room, we went to the back and we had a quite worn out building with disappoint room. They should increase the quality. Quite good but stiff service at reception.
