The Layang Layang is on a very cool little street in Melaka. It's one street behind Jonker Street and so it's quieter and less hectic. The street has a lovely mix of local residents and guest-houses. We arrived with no reservation. The team at Layang Layang were very welcoming and helped sort-out a park for our car. Our room was... More

The location of this Guest House is just a few minute walk from Jonker street which is why i prefer staying with them. Rooms and facilities were clean, staff are friendly though some were unable to speak English well. The building was a restored classic melaccan house which sets the good vibes though you need to be careful on it... More

Stayed 1 night when passing through Maleka on the way to Singaore based on the price, location and good reviews. We found it a bit disappointing, from being immediately accosted and told to remove our shoes as soon as we walked in (while we were clearly still laden with our bags - no hello/welcome!!) and then pay 5o ringgit deposit...

The rooms are rather small and without much facilities (just a bed, side table, aircond and a dustbin), but clean and comfortable for a good rest. The common bathrooms are always clean and maintained. Perfect for those, who would go out and explore the town the whole day. Free water, utensils, plates and cups provided at the pantry. Because of... More

Regarding the thin walls, we are already taking action against this issue to improve for the better, as well as the wooden floor on the upper floor. It will take time, and we definitely hope...

Never expect the guesthouse is ideally located near Jonker with just a few steps away. RM100 for a clean stay with air-conditioning is absolutely value for money. The guest house is uniquely and tastefully decorated. Some nice cafes with just walking distance. Fantastic location :)

Good location, friendly services, great price and flexible arrangement of guests' requirements ^_^ It's worth to stay again and again either with family, friends or group..... The staff are great helpful, it's good for any different age of travelers! Suggest to stay over two or three nights(thinking about staying for a week next time!)

In fact one the most detailed and nicely decorated guest house. Ideally located where most attractions such as St Paul's Hill, A'Famosa Fort, Jonker Streeet, Taming Sari Tower is only 10-minutes distance by foot. They have very limited parking space and works with first come first serve basis. If you can't get any parking at the guest house, you can... More

We had the whole place to ourselves as the other rooms were vacant. The room was Very big, it's like a loft with a second level. The staff/owner was very friendly and gave use glutinous rice balls which they made themselves as it was the festival. Shower amenities offered after check out as well.

Wonderful guesthouse in a great location. We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time.

The only thing would be that the walls are paper thin and there are... More
