My husband and I have just returned from a short break in Malaysia. We caught a taxi from LCCT airport to Melaka at a cost of 159RM ($55.55c australian). For a journey that took nearly 2 hours, we thought this was very good value.
We stayed at the Puri Hotel which is just around the corner from Jonker Street. The hotel was everything that I had read about it.
Very old, but magnificently maintained. The room we had was on the ground floor and overlooked the garden. The bathroom was small but very very clean, the shower was one of the best we have experienced on our many travels. The garden resturant was lovely. Breakfast didn`t have much choice, but for what we paid, was probably worth it. Staff were pleasant, and we had no complaints at all. The hotel is in an exellent position, we walked everywhere (and we are both in our 60`s)
We would definitely stay at the Puri again. In fact we are already making plans to return October/November 2010 with my husbands brother and wife. I cant post any photos yet, cause I havent downloaded them from the camera .
