Very nice Hotel in excellent position.Unfortunately it is on a very busy narrow road without much of a footpath.Lovely old furniture and decor but somehow lacked warmth and atmosphere .we were on the first floor and could hear the guests in the adjoining room.

Room Tip: Maybe not on the first floor near the stairway.

Was there for 2nights with family of ten (2 superior & 2 deluxe double room). It's a beautiful hotel with a history room. The check in was smooth although two of our four rooms was not ready upon check in at 3pm. Breakfast are simple. The room size of 1 of the deluxe room is similar to superior room, our feedback from the manager was that it due to the furniture in the deluxe room (antique/original furniture passed down for a few generation). The staff are generally helpful & friendly. Overall, had a good stay at Puri.

A fantastic colonial Hotel close to all facitlities in Malacca. I have stayed here twice now, firstly as part of a group when we had rooms in the main hotel which were fantastic! Second time with family when we were in the new and more modern wing which was very pleasant but did not have the atmosphere. The staff were very helpful, recommending restaurants and places of interest.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the original building.

We made a last minute decision to visit and called up for reservation, the receptionist was very helpful in taking reservation but feels a bit insecure to have to provide the credit card details over the phone...

They reserved the school nearby to extend their parking facility so that was great help especially in the busy strip of town. The common area was nice with lovely heritage decorations, and amazing garden. The pool (not for swimming) in one of the airwell is amazingly cooling for the house.

We had a room on 2nd floor, it was clean. Could have been helpful if there were more decorations in the room, after the lovely decorated common area. The wooden floor is a nice touch but over times you heard the door banging etc noise from the corridor or downstairs so the soundproofing was not that good.

Not all staff at the reception provide good service so its just a luck. Often the desk is empty as they seems to be hiding at the room behind, and they don't really greet the guest as they walk past. The concierge staffs are very helpful though.

In all, I would stay they for the convenient location and the historical common area decoration, but please don't expect great service.

Room Tip: Rooms at the top floors might leave you out with less noise.

Got a good deal to stay with Hotel Puri in November with attach double bed & queen bed room for the family. We were really impress with the herritage architecture design of the boutique hotel.
every inch of the building were herritage...of all the antique furniture, setting & gardening were amazing. You may be supprise that we are sharing the hotel with the "swallows", by night you may see most swallow laying on them nets within the Lobby halls without interfere the guest.

It's rall value for money, as most herriatge you may find here at Puri Hotel and it's just walking distance to most happening night market(JOnker Streets) as well as near by place of interest/entertaiment areas/restaurants anything you name it, you may find it within distance reach.

If any of you lucky enough to meet Ms Joey(the house keeper) ...just approach her, she(always with the smiling face) will most happy to give you a hotel tour with her creative mind set to assist to snap a remembrance photo at this hotel.
