The staff at the Hotel Equatorial, Ooi LeYin was kind enough to make a reservation at Puri. I would have stayed on at Equatorial but the offers of food was too much for a small eater like me.
Hotel PUri is an old Baba House and the architecture is very pleasing. it has been turned into a Boutique hotel.
the only disadvantage is that most of the guests are foreigners and I would have preferred a more local presence. But that is just personal. The central area for breakfast is delightful. It is nice to relax and write..

Unique Qualities: Unlike other hotels, Puri offers wireless Internet all through the hotel and does not charge for it. for example Equatorial charges close to 40 ringitt per day for wireless . and internet costs are around 4 ringitts per hour so it is an enticement.

Superior rooms in January 2006 cost 172 ringgits but a 10% discount can be had, thus around 155 Myr per night all taxes included andbreakfast thrown in.
