THE AUSTRALIAN - 21 July 1998 "Hotel Puri...the highlight of a visit...an accomodation house hailed to be the city's most memorable feature. The Puri has successfully pulled off the neat trick of being both a delightfully comfortable, modern hotel without sacrificing the exquisite, quiet environment of a typical Peranakan home."

BUSINESS TRAVELLER - July 1998 "Among the more interesting properties in Melaka...intriguingly located in a Heeren Street Peranakan townhouse."

THE STRAITS TIMES - 1 November 1998 "Like old times. Revel in Malacca's historical past by staying in one of the old town's beautifully restored Peranakan houses which have been converted into boutique hotels. Recalling a more gracious age, Hotel Puri has retained almost all the original fittings like marble flooring, Victorian era tiles and timber carvings."

WANITA MAGAZINE - August 1998 "...Klasik dan Kaya dengan ciri-ciri kebudayaan Peranakan... jangan lepaskan peluang mengabdi kenangan andai berkunjung ke (Melaka)...klasik Puri memikat hati."

OFFICE NATIONAL DU TOURISME DE MALAISIE, PARIS, FRANCE - August 1998 "L'hotel bien preserve les marbres, bois et ceramiques traditionnelles des demeures Baba Nyonya de Malacca. Les 50 chambres beneficient cependant de tout le comfort moderne."

TOURISM MALAYSIA - 2000 A delightful little find in the heart of Melaka, Hotel Puri is a 50-room Heritage Boutique hotel that provides a convenient focal point from which visitors can conduct their own historical and cultural tours.

NEW STRAITS TIMES, MALAYSIA, 17 August 2001 The Majestic Peranakan. Amidst the flurry of activity in the centre of Malacca town sits an architectural treasure reminiscent of a bygone era. Its majestic facade holds the promise of what's within and you are not dissapointed when you step inside and are transported into a world of fine Peranakan d'cor that has stood the test of time....Hotel Puri is a true example of how conservation work can work hand-in-hand with development, as the old and new sit in complete harmony with each other in what was once a Peranakan home, today is enjoyed by many.

AA TRAVELPACK, 2001 Beautifully restored Peranakan manor in the historical centre, with modern rooms, a cafe, and gardens.

Dow Jones & Company, 5 January 2002 "A historical trip down Malaysia's Malacca" ...if one wants to be reminded of an era of grace, then step into Hotel Puri. The charming hotel built in 1822 has been beautifully restored right down to the timber carvings, the Victorian tiles and antique Chinese furniture and fittings.

MARIE CLAIRE, August 2002 "High on Heritage" From the tiles, to the spiral stairways that lead to the top rooms, and intricate finishing, its heritage has been maintained almost flawlessly. Hotel Puri is sweetly charming before anything else.

le Guide du Routard, 2002 "Plus Chic" Magnifique façade, tres belle entrée, sol en marbre, mobilier chinois et, derriere la reception, jolie cour interieure avec basin et d'elegantes chaises en fer forge Si vous devez choisir un hotel chic a Malacca, pas de doute, celui-ci offer le meilleur rapport qualite-charme.

Frommer's - 2002 "In the olden days, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock was known as 'Millionaire's Row' for all the wealthy families lived here. This old 'mansion' has been converted into a guesthouse, its tiled parlor has become a lobby, the courtyard is where breakfast is served each morning... Big on value. Rooms are very clean & comfortable enough for any weary traveller. Friendly and responsive staff add to the appeal."

Lonely Planet, 9th Edition - 2004 "Chinatown has some fine buildings and Hotel Puri is one of them. This elegant creation is a superb old renovated Peranakan manor house that once belonged to a rubber plantation owner. The elaborate lobby is decked out with beautiful old cane and inlaid furniture, and opens into a glassed-over inner courtyard. Standard rooms are very comfortable and come with all mod cons."

Footprint, Malaysia, 5th edition "Beautiful hotel set in a restored Peranakan house....Recommended."

The Rough Guide, Malaysia, 5th edition, 2006 "Set in a beautifully restored Peranakan shophouse, this is one of the best value options in town. Rooms are decorated in a contemporary style and make good use of space."

Lonely Planet, Malaysia and Singapore travel guide 2007 "Chinatown has some fine buildings and Hotel Puri is one of them.

DK Eyewitness Travel, Malaysia, 2008 "Built in the 1870s, this traditional Baba Nonya townhouse has been carefully restored and retains its original features such as the elaborate stucco facade and mosaic-tiled floors. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable, while the suites are more stylishly designed."

Expatriate Lifestyle, November 2010 "Hotel Puri is a lovely boutique hotel in Melaka city centre. And their spa is the epitomy if a tranquil haven to peacefully recover from the sweaty climb up St Paul's Hill. The spa is set in a tropical water garden, the flowing streams of water is enough to set you at your ease while you are being pampered. There are several packages on offer and the therapists are internationally experienced. Even if you are not staying as a guest, this spa is well worth checking out. Possibly after checking out the various art galleries and classic Peranankan houses that line its immediate neighbourhood."
