Melaka Trip

Melaka has always been our favourite holiday destination.  We loved going there for the food especially and there are so many things to do in Melaka.  We stayed at Hotel Puri during our short break at Melaka last week.  I had always wanted to stay in this boutique hotel.   I find that the location of this hotel was very strategic.  It was located at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock and very near to Jonker’s Street.  I had read so many good reviews about this boutique hotel and three years ago, when we went to Melaka, I went in for a short tour around the lobby area of this hotel.  I just loved all the ‘antique’ decoration that they had in this hotel.

When we went to Matta Fair two weeks ago, Hotel Puri was having a promotion for RM149 nett for a superior room per night.  Since we were planning for a trip to Melaka, we book for two nights stay with breakfast.  I believe this was a promotion price as I remembered their hotel rates for superior room was around RM200 per room.

We arrived around 12.00pm, had our lunch at the famous chicken ball rice shop (will blog about it later) and checked in the hotel around 2.00pm.  We requested for a baby cot for our lil princess but in the end it was our lil prince who slept in the baby cot and lil princess slept on the bed J.  I personally find the room spacious and clean.  I loved the antique chairs and cupboards in the room.   The toilet was clean and they provide the basic toiletries.  

Our package comes with breakfast for two days and I find that their breakfast selection was good.  Among the food on the menu were sausages, fried meehoon, asam laksa (on the first day), fried eggs or omelette, potatoes wedges, mushroom lasagna and etc.  There was also some selection of breads, cornflakes, coco crunch and fruits.  I find that there was a  lot of food just for breakfast. 

Here are some photos taken at the boutique hotel.  Next, will blog about the wonderful food that we had in Melaka!
