Used this place as a budget layover just for the night for my family on our way to Cameron. Wasn't expecting much. And this place definitely way exceed my expectation. Location is perfect for those without your own transport. Surprisingly quiet at night. Clean house / clean room. The snacks were a big plus. Definitely will use this place again... More

The location is good, the staff were friendly enough and the shared areas were clean and pleasant, but my room was a major disappointment. A tiny windowless space with wooden walls and huge gaps around the door that let in both noise and a whole load of mosquitoes. Wifi didn't even reach it. After two nights of waking up with... More

Great location on a relatively quiet street, in a gorgeous old building with a very pretty courtyard. Unfortunately the evening/night guy seemed to know nothing at all about the area - didn't know what Kampung Portugis was, and couldn't direct me anywhere. Also left inside lights on all night which blazed into my room. Daytime staff (the owner?) were very... More

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

If you're looking for no-frills accommodation while in Melaka, i highly recommend Layang Layang. The rooms and facilities are very clean. The rooms are basic but its comfortable - cushy mattress and pillows, all rooms equipped with both air con and fan. Bathrooms are shared but there are enough for all the occupants. I stayed while the place was at... More
