Due to its wooden structure, you can hear the sound of people talking in the next room, and also hear them walk around - something to consider if you prefer a quiet stay. Shared showers and water closets are properly maintained and cleaned. No towels and breakfast provided. If you're driving, parking will be quite hard to get as its... More

I and my friend traveled to Melaka in Aug,2016, just spent 2 days in this ancient place. It is easy to find our guest house. It has a good location which is near to night market, and some attraction destinations. This is the first time we have stayed in a guest house, so we were excited. We find Layang Layang... More

It's my 3rd time staying here. Literally a stone throw away from the famous Jonker Street. It's easy to travel around central Malacca with bikes. Staffs're friendly and helpful. Reasonable price. However, as it is a very old building, sound-proofing is the down side. Overall an excellent guest house for this price.

Friendly staff attended us,gave us a room over looking the street. We even had a mini photo shooting in our room due to the great natural sunlight. It can be rather noisy during night time.So if you're a light sleeper you might want to avoid choosing rooms facing main street.Other wise everything is worth the price we'd paid.

Stayed in Melaka just for one night - loved this guest house - quaint and laid back with the friendliest hosts. the outdoor area just by the street was perfect to watch life go by in the early evenings. Bikes are also provided , perfect way to get around this little town. Stay here and you wont regret it!

Great location, near to Jonker Street and convenient to the famous historical city in Malacca. The room wasn't fantastic but is great for short stay. Staff is friendly to provide you free map for the attractive place in Malacca.

I enjoyed staying here, this place is gorgeous and I love the courtyard. The room was comfortable however you might need a sleep mask, the light from the windows were pretty bright (I'm very light sensitive). The toilet/bathroom was clean too and I appreciate the pantry they have. Thanks!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Layang Layang Guest House is located at Blacksmith Street, which is known today as Jalan Tukang Besi. It is only one-minute walk to Jonker Street (Jonker Walk), and is the best location during your exploration in one of the oldest heritage sites in Malaysia that is preserved till today. The building of the guesthouse is believed to be over 100 years old. Back in the olden days, it used to be a famous opium den, and was once a brothel too! As you stay in the wooden house with history, it often feels like travelling back in time. Its original structure remains, including the large beautiful courtyard that represents the “feng shui” of the house. Fully restored since 2013, the guesthouse offers a fusion of old world charm and modern convenience. Today, it has a total of 20 fully air-conditioned rooms and 8 shared bathrooms that are cleaned and well-maintained at all times and equipped with quality toilet amenities. Combined with modern and heritage design, we assure our guests staying with pleasure and views of the heritage street. Carefully selected room furniture, cozy lobby, and the secret garden create a clean, soothing, and comfortable environment for your breakaway relaxation experience. ... more   less
