I'm hestitate to book this hotel at first as the front view of the hotel doesn't look attractive to me but due to the strategic location and the affordable price of the room, I've decided to book it. I was hoping for the best... Well, the thing that I'm unhappy with is, there is not place for me to stop... More

Booked 4 rooms 3 months in advance. Called 3 weeks before arrival and realised reception had made a mistake with the booking. Only booked the rooms for 1 night and not 2 as requested. The man on the phone was very unhelpful to such an extent he was very rude to my wife. As a result we refuse to stay... More

Absolutely love this hotel. The room was large and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The beautiful garden was also a plus. Breakfast was repeated everyday though but it wouldn't be a problem if you only stay here for a few days.

The Hotel Puri looks magnificent on its outside and inside. I can't even count how many different sitting areas it provides for guests. Rooms were very comfortable. Evrything is tastefully done. Bathrooms are clean, AC works well and staff is very attentive, all for a very affordable price. Note that the free breakfast isn't the tastiest thing, although they give... More

We were recommended this hotel by a fellow expat now living in Singapore. Good hotels are hard to find in Melaka - this is a gem. Situted in the old town at the back off Jonker st - where the w/e night market is held and all the antique and gift shops are located. Couldn't get a better location -... More

A lovely hotel, very convenient to all the major sites and to the nearby night market. The hotel had a calm atmosphere amidst the hustle and bustle of the town - i did not notice any untoward attitude from the staff as mentioned in other reviews. Our room was spacious and had its own balcony overlooking the courtyard - although... More

We stayed at Hotel Puri for 3 nights in August 08. I had selected it for its history and location. The ambience of the hotel lived up to our expectations, with its beautiful old foyer, antique furniture, lovely peaceful courtyard, and good well priced meals. Fruit juices were very good! The "history room" was a nice touch. We stayed in... More

all the good stuff others had written about this place are true. i'd really like to return here again if the management could improve on the service staff's attitude. apart from the lack of friendliness and courtesy from the front desk receptionist and restaurant staff the rest were at best civil.

When we arrived we were given the key to our room but when we got there it was already occupied. We returned to the reception desk and the staff were obviously confused, however we were polite and said it was fine just could we have another room, preferably a lovely one! We were obviously upgraded as we were then given... More

Stayed at the Superior room. Nothing to shout about, it was a very basic room. Footsteps from the floor upstairs can be annoying since my room was on the ground floor. Nice and clean courtyards. The Puri Spa was good. Convenient and within walking distance to Jonker Street and other tourist attractions. Not suitable for those looking for a quiet... More
