We loved Hotel Puri. Had read all the great reviews before we went so we were expecting it to be great, and we weren't disappointed.
The only things I would add are:
Due to it's central location it IS affected by noise. We stayed in the Junior Suite (room 165) ... fabulous room, our 4.5 year old son slept on the sofa bed on the first level (which is where the bathroom was located too) and our king size bed was in the loft above him. They warned us that it could be a bit noisy in this room in the mornings as it's directly above the breakfast room, but as our boy wakes early every morning anyway this wasn't a concern for us ... and nor was it too noisy anyway.
But we could clearly hear the "doosh doosh" thumping beat of a bar/nightclub probably on Jonker Street until around 2am and this happens every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night apparently. This did somewhat spoil our otherwise wonderful stay, although not enough not to return.
The other thing was the bed itself ... king size but hard as a rock! A great shame as the room was really fabulous otherwise, especially for the price.
We are looking forward to returning ... we had a look at the Puri Suite before we left and the one on the 1st floor is outstanding. We also viewed the family room which has a king size bed and 2 doubles and a separate living area ... but no door.
The food in the hotel was good, it's really got so much character and, in short, we absolutely loved it and do highly recommend it.
