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

My family and I enjoyed stayed at Layang-Layang while holidaying in Malacca recently. It’s a quaint guesthouse with a nostalgic atmosphere that has all the modern amenities (including free Wi-Fi) which provided comfort and convenience for families (with or without children), small groups, backpackers or anyone looking for a perfect smog-free 'getaway' from any city!

We got to Melaka late in the evening with no reservation and found this great place. Beautiful guesthouse with a large patio and very good vibe. The staff was super friendly and the place is very clean and neat. Definitely the friendliest on our 2 month travel from Bangkok to Borneo.
