Hotel Puri’s impressive facade is a landmark on Melaka’s heritage Heeren Street, originally built in 1822 and once the home of an eminent rubber plantation owner and philanthropist..

The grand home was originally 100 metres long with three light wells. Today the magnificent residence has been restored and a modern L-shaped wing has been added to the site of what was once the stable, carriage parking area and private zoo that is said to have kept tigers.

Plenty of rooms, so ask to see a few if you can, or book carefully.

The elegant lobby, gorgeous courtyard gardens, ponds and antique-filled common areas, including a “history room” cafe and spa, are a wonderful respite from the heat and bustle of Melaka’s streets. Compared to the opulence of the rest of the hotel, some rooms are a little underwhelming. If your budget only stretches to the standard rooms, look elsewhere for better value. Higher standards however secure a better deal, though these too are a mixed bag—some with no windows, or limited outlook, although we were shown some lovely rooms, too. .

As it’s a largish hotel (82 rooms and 10 suites), there’s ample choice. All rooms offer comfortable beds, and modern amenities including air-con, a safe, TV, tea-making facilities and a minibar (in superior and up). Some add delightful Peranakan touches. Breakfast is included, served in the garden cafe. Staff are charming and the hotel has its own walking tour app to explore the city. .

We love the historic charm of Hotel Puri but you may also consider Gingerflower Boutique Hotel or Hotel Courtyard@Heeren, both with appealing Peranakan style and comfortable rooms.
