Hotel Puri is far from posh, luxurious or having service-excellent staff that make you feel like royalties, but I really like this place. It is heritage-rich, conveniently located, and has staff who is casual-friendly. It brings out my childhood memories living in a similar shop house in Singapore's Chinatown. For a re-built property of > 200 years in origin, this hotel has so far got very good vibes; it does not make me feel eerie or anything of that sort.
Old but basic and clean
Decors & Landscape:
Fusion of peranakan, chinese and zen
Adequate and quite good spread for a hotel this size. Relaxing 'garden' dining.
A private carpark just few shops down the road. Easy and convenient.
Hotel Puri is always my first choice in Melaka if my agenda revolves around Jonker's and town.
The challenge is, it is always full on weekends and peak periods. Book at least 2-3 months in advance to avoid disappointment.
