I have already posted a review after my first visit to Layang Layang, but I was so shocked by the review written by Aravna that I feel that I needed to repost!! I stayed here about 2 weeks ago, but loved Melaka so much that I decided to return before I went back to UK. And for me, there's only... More

This is probably a perfect stay for backpackers because of the price and the location. Thats it. The rooms are very small with small beds, small bedspread, no places to put or hang your clothes and other stuff. You can only access wifi from the common area and its to noisy, both from the traffic and the other rooms. There... More

We are very sorry to hear that several things throughout your stay did not meet your expectations. However, there are things that we need to clarify to avoid misunderstanding. First of all, the bed.

I have been to melaka few times, yet, this is time i had the best accomodation of all the past times i had went. The customer service is Great! Friendly! I would have said Perfect! Good environment! Well the best is, it is 3min walk from jonker street. However, at night, it is seperated from the buzz in jonker street.

It's my first time in Melaka and I should say that as a first timer, it raised a very high standard for all other trips which I will be making. The place is simply amazing and the staff are veeeeeeery friendly! Hope to be back soon! :)

This guesthouse is in a great location - but what makes it so special is the wonderful staff!! They are so helpful and friendly to everyone...but as I was travelling alone, I perhaps chatted to them more than most people. Malaysia has become a bit of a 'food tour' for me - & these girls helped me find some of... More

This is a good choice for location as its just one street away from Jonkers. Most of the Malacca town attractions are within walking distance from Layang Layang. The staff are friendly and helpful and will help you out whenever they can. The room is clean and the bedding and aircon very comfy. There is free wifi provided in the... More

The surroundings is very good but room have a little bit bad smelly. This can be avoid by having some air freshener and no worries about this. Wash-rooms is share but it was clean. Staff is good and they will give some information about the nearby destinations.

I've booked the family room and was given the 1st floor unit. The room was spacious with 2 queen size bed and a small side table and 2 chairs. The pantry and common area was decent. Bed was comfortable but the noise from the 2nd level was unbearable. It was actually quite disturbing both during daytime and at night. This... More

The place is quite nice, the deco in the reception area is quite fun with the retro feel. The staff here are friendly and helpful. The thing I like most is the great location! It's just one lane next to jonker street, so it's near but doesn't have so much noise. Con is that there are mosquito, also the floor... More

A very interesting no-frills guest house experience in a very well preserved property. Stayed in Room 21 with my partner which comes with a queen bed, a side table with 2 chairs and a cloak hanger. It also has a window that over-looks the back lane. The other room that we booked, Room 22, which was a quad sharing room... More
