My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 primary school going children) spent a night at Hotel Puri during the Easter weekend for a long needed short break.
You cant beat its location at Jalan Tan Cheng Lock (Heeren Street). Smack in the city centre and runs parallel to Jonker Street, the night market, restaurants are just round the corners. We also walked easily to St Pauls, Jln Bunga Raya, the Malacca Cruise jetty near the maritime museum. The hotel also has a private carpark a few shop houses away so it is very convenient for us who drive.
The reception was prompt and smooth. No hiccups and everything was in order for us.
We stayed in a superior quad that comes with 2 queen beds on the 3rd floor at the back of the hotel. The room is clean and very spacious. It comes with a TV, fridge, complimentary coffee/tea making facilities and bottled water. The bathroom is also very clean and has a shower with good water pressure and hot water. The downside was that the wifi connection was not too good in the room and the aircon is a little noisy. Otherwise it would have been great.
Breakfast was at the Heliconia room (in an unqiue ambience/concept of an open courtyard). The spread was mediocre. Nothing fanciful but enought to kick start the day.
