I have stayed a few times at the Puri. There is loads of atmosphere and a great location. However, there are drawbacks.. The wi-fi service is terrible and it took three days to convince staff that the phone in my room did not work. The restaurant food is not good.

Walking through the doors of this boutique hotel, and you feel you've entered a Baba and Nyonya home. It feels so traditional, homely, and welcoming in that sense. We took a room with a king-sized bed. The bed was comfortable enough. The room itself was tidy and clean, has the basics - nothing of luxury here, but maybe that is... More

Had lunch at the inner courtyard and it was beautiful. I have lots of allergies and they were able to tailor their mee goreng! Make sure to ask Ms. Jo to take an artsy photo of you from behind the bushes or a statue . The experience will no disappoint!!

Peranakan quality and standard good as before. Check in efficient. Room, everything works in a century old place. Breakfast spread while limited is wholesome. Good place if you're looking for heritage.

Enter this magnificent old hotel and you've stepped back into a rich Malaysian culture. Everything is beautifully maintained and the antique furniture and artifacts are a visual delight. My room, the double superior deluxe, on the first floor was extremely comfortable with everything a 5 star hotel provides. The wi-fi worked well as did the airconditioning, my two top requirements.... More

A beautiful hotel right in the middle of Melaka city. The hotel is kept in exquisite condition. Do take a visit to the history room. Amazing service staff. Don't miss meeting Ms. Jo. She ensures that you have the best history lesson of Melaka. We had an amazing photo session by Ms Jo. A few caveats to note. The wifi... More

Old-world boutique hotel in 3 buildings with charming staff, spacious, clean and very comfortable rooms, and a leisurely, very-good-indeed, all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast that you can have out in the tropical garden and read your free newspaper. Formerly a private house with courtyard and stable block, it's still owned by the original family. We vowed last year to stay here next... More

Staff is extremely helpful especially Zul and General Manager Casey. 3 min walk to jonker street. Peaceful at night with little or no disturbance. Near hard rock cafe and church. Breakfast however is mediocre so please don't expect... More

Such a charming hotel full of character so you feel like you have stepped back in time. We spent an enjoyable three nights in Melaka at this wonderful hotel as a group of seven girlfriends and had a great time. The Heliconia suite is amazing and daily breakfast in the courtyard was lovely. All staff were so friendly and helpful... More
