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! What we liked about Layang-Layang are its clean air-conditioned bedrooms (with very comfy beds) and its many ultra-clean shared bathrooms (yes! eventhough the bathrooms are shared they are absolutely spotless - all thanks to Layang-Layang's small band of dedicated staff!). There's even a small pantry for all the guests to use (with free hot & cold water, coffee and biscuits). And we really made use of it as we had to prepare food for our baby! Amazingly every guest who stayed in Layang-Layang kept the pantry spick and span! We also liked Layang-Layang's airy courtyard where we had our breakfast and afternoon tea listening to water cascading into a koi pond (with eight large beautiful kois)! You’ll also find a well (great for anyone who hasn't seen one before!) at one end of the courtyard. Another thing about Layang-Layang is its location; it's just a stone-throw away from Jonker's Street and all the wonderful local Malacca cuisine (ondeh-ondeh, chendol, nyonya delicacies and lots more!). It's a great location for treasure hunters too! I can say many more good things about Layang-Layang but it's suffice to say that if you're planning your holiday to Malacca you'll find it more memorable staying in Layang-Layang. And you might even get to meet the friendly couple who passionately created Layang-Layang! Layang-Layang is worth checking out! :)
