I suggested my friends to make this place our stay for the weekend trip and we never regretted my recommendation.

Yes, it is a little steep on the rates (considering the selection of backpacker inns just around every corner of Jonker Street) but this is worth your money if you have that extra cash to spend. You are in Malacca and no better way to add to that experience by staying the Peranakan style. The exterior looks old but in a good way. The interior is well maintained and the staff are friendly. Location is not right at the heart of Jonker Street as it's sitting quite further inside. But this is perfect for me because we can get the peace we want during day and night, away from the hustle and bustle of the street market. Plus we sure can burn off some of those extra calories from those extra cravings when you're in this gastronomic town! It's not that far of a walk anyways.

I particularly like the little alfresco gardens where we can just chill out and enjoy a few cold drinks on a hot day. During the night, it's nice and quiet too. The breakfast area is also an open space and the spread is decent. They serve continental breakfast as well as some local cuisines like nasi lemak and porridge. We did not have any problems with the rooms at all. Everything was in order and the view out the window sure perks up our morning.

For those who have never been to a Peranakan house before (like myself), this will provide for an interesting experience. I was surprised at how much space it houses on the inside when its exterior seems to suggest just the complete contrary. For those who have never seen a bird's nest (those expensive delicacies usually consumed by the Chinese people), you may check it out in the room behind the reception desk. These birds are out during the day but you can watch them sleep in the evening. Their nests, which look like small saucers, are sitting on the higher walls of the room.

In summary, I would definitely come back here to stay and would certainly recommend this place for families, friends and couples. Hope this helps.

Room Tip: There is no elevator service running. So be sure to ask for lower level rooms if you prefer so.

Clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet... I couldn't say much negativities in it
Though I'd say it is a bit pricey for what you get, the stay was more or less, hassle-free and satisfying!

The fact that it is in a bustling street adds plus points to it as it is in close proximity to many places ^^

They even had a good spread of choices in their breakfast buffet and not to mention, yummy food :)
It is a place to consider for me when I go back to Melaka again!

my husband and i had a stop over in Malacca from singapore to seremban just for night....we just wanted to have another night out of our home... ;)....
finding a room for the weekend was difficut...after walking in and out of almost all the hotels in jonkers...thank god we had one here in hotel puri....
Rooms was nice and authenthic...it feels very peranakan...
the bell boy (an elderly man actually) was very nice towards us...( i think he was the only one i felt was not biased in greeting the visitors)
breakfast was at the courtyard...ambience was great...
all the hotel gives a very malacca feel....it sits right in the heart of hostorical malacca....its in jonkers street...everything is just a walk away...
now for the cons:
i wished the hotel staffs have the courtesy to treat all visitors the same!!! more over we are MALAYSIANS and i don think we are any lesser than any foreigners....this attitude is the only thing i felt a little upset...
another things is the bath room was really small...my husband and i are both small sized and yet we felt it was a little cramped in the bathroom, even when we shower alone....wat more if together?! ;)

otherwise its at great location...nice place...i woukld return again...hoping the staffs are better behaved this time...

The building itself is tremendous and makes quite a first impression. The service was good as was the breakfast that was served in the courtyard each morning. Our room was comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. The location is first rate as you are right in the heart of the historic old town. We very much enjoyed our stay there.
