Hotel Puri is in an authentic peranakan house built by a rich Chinese in the XIX century. Great care has been taken to conserve the historical interior. So when you enter the hotel, you feel transported back in the past. You get to understand what kind of homes rich Chinese millionaires enjoyed when Malacca was vibrant and prosperous.
The service was good and we liked our room. But nothing exceptional. We had lunch after our arrival and were disappointed by the food. There are many restaurants around so I'd avoid the hotel restaurant.
The hotel is located on Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock at the heart of the Chinese part of the city. The street is lined with elegant historic shophouses and townhouses former homes of the Baba-Nonya community. The street is calm compared to nearby bustling Jonkers street, home to many bars, restaurants and tourist shops that can open very late.
Overall, the oustanding feature of this hotel is the historic atmosphere and the great location.More
