In the heart of historic Malacca, Hotel Puri is a Peranakan house and a well-preserved hotel. Founded in the 19th century by the Tan Kim Seng family, the heritage has been preserved in its exquisite period details. Hardwoods are used throughout the interior, including walls, floors, and stairwells. The courtyard is furnished with simple tables and chairs and dotted with lush vegetation, providing a space for guests to relax. The lobby is bright, with natural light streaming in through skylights and decorative floor tiles.

I booked from Trip.com at a rate of RM163, which is cheaper than the official website. Also compared to Agoda and Booking.com, about RM10 Trip.com was cheaper. I use these three booking sites in most cases except when I use the official website.

From the street, the hotel looks small, but like the rest of the building, it is set back about 100 meters.

The reception was right in front of the old style atrium with Peranakan style furniture against the wall, where we checked in. There was aircon around the reception area, so I could check in while keeping cool even on a hot day.

Standard Twin Room

I was surprised to see a lift installed on the way to room. I mean, I never expect that such an old Peranakan style house would have a lift.

Our room was right in front of the lift. The room was small at 16 square meters and there was no space to open two luggage at the same time.
