The hotel Puri is a quaint place, well located right next to some of the main sights and activities in Melaka. The interior is very pleasant, mixing typical decorations with a lot of greenery. It also boasts a spa, and having tried the back massage, it's well worth it if you're traveling around by bus. Most importantly, the service was... More

Loved the building and the location... Their rooms were basic and it suited us for a night's stay to visit some good friends. We only used the accommodation to sleep, shower and have breakfast before we checked out.... It was reasonably priced and cool to just browse through the hotel lobby. Not for romance if I was going to recommend... More

We stayed 3 nights at Puri Hotel in Melaka, after initially only booking 2. It was so centrally located that it was easy to get around and see the things we wanted to, and eat the local food we had come for. The hotel is a beautiful old house, done up nicely. The rooms are basic but fine with all... More

However, even though we had less than 24 hours in total in Melaka, staying at the Hotel Puri meant we had a safe and close haven to return to at any time in the old part of the city. It was hot. Many of our group were on a budget. But Puri seems to suit so many needs; location is... More

Generally our stay at Hotel Puri was not as memorable compared to other guest houses in the same vicinity - reception staff was perfunctory in attitude and did not go out of their way to be really helpful or engage. The room location and aspect was unsatisfactory, A/C was old, noisy and still leaked water at night despite being fixed... More

If you are looking for an affordable, clean, comfortable, convenient, charming, historic hotel in Malacca, Malaysia, I don't know how you could do any better than Hotel Puri. Located in the heart of the historic district, the hotel provides an intimate, local experience. Seriously, why would you stay in a big, modern, could-be-anywhere hotel when you can enjoy a true-blue... More

What a beautiful oasis in a hot busy wonderful part of Melaka! We couldn't have wanted more. This hotel is a charming and exquisite building which once entered you will find hard to leave. Juliana, the manager, was very welcoming, helpful and efficient, from well before we arrived, emailing us and arranging transfers with the very reliable Mr Goh. As... More

Used to stay in the Holiday Inn every time when I traveled to Melaka. Stayed 01 night at the Hotel Puri because i am traveling with my families member and prefer to have a convenience location and family room. Location was convenience and walking distance to most of the attraction. Not much choice for the breakfast but with the price... More

this jewel of a hotel stands in a busy street but once you go through the door you are in a haven of beauty and quiet. Fantastic staff: helpful, cheerful and efficient make it that extra special. It's beautifully clean, wonderful plants and indoor courtyards, little corners everywhere to surprise you. The furniture is lovely and there's even a small... More

Stayed 1 night at the Hotel Puri. It is just off Jonker Street and very very convenient. It's within walking distance to all major sights, plenty of eats near by, and antique and curio shops. If you drive, there is secure parking where you can park your car for your whole trip to Malacca and not have to worry about... More
