Beautiful guesthouse located at Jalan Tukang Besi. Great Walking distance to Melaka Red House and Jonker Street... Rooms are washroom are clean. Staff are nice and friendly. However, the room's sound proof is really bad as the partition is made using plywood only. We can hear what next door was talking clearly. So if you don't mind the noises, it... More

Very near to jonker walk and the point of attraction. The room is simple, clean and cosy. The shared bathroom is clean, shampoo and body shampoo is provided. The owner /staff of guest house is very friendly and helpful. However, no towel is provided. You need to bring your own towel. Rental of bicycle is slightly expensive than other shop.

The rooms are clean and the toilets and basins are super clean. The guesthouse is built in a traditional way with the interiors opening out into a enclosed courtyard complete... More

I am a hygiene freak. . And I totally love this place. The bed and sheets are clean and comfortable, (better than the bed during my stay at Berjaya Tioman Resort the day before!!) Outstanding cleanliness throughout whole guest house. The use of quality branded shower heater, toilet bowl, basin, taps, bidet, aircond compliment the whole stay experience. Daphne and... More

Booked this guest house which recevied good ratings from the travellers. We are not regret with our choice as the location is perfect, which is walking distance to most of the eatery places in our wish list, and it is just another block away from the popular Jonker Street. However, you need luck to get a parking space if you... More

I recently booked 4 nights at Layang Layang, I loved it so much that I stayed for 8 nights. I could not fault anything. The beds are the most comfortable I have had in any hotel and all the facilities are spotless. The shared bathrooms are very spacious with plenty of hooks to hang things on. The kitchen area has...

Stayed one night here in March. All the staffs are very friendly and helpful. We've stayed in the family room which is a super great deal.
