Agreed with other travellers review regarding the cozy furnishing that is instagram worthy, it is probably the best looking guesthouse in the whole street. However, the sound proofing is quite a big annoyance for me, as i can even hear the next door girl zipping and unzipping her bags all the time. Maybe it's also my bad timing that there... More

I really liked this guesthouse in how it was laid out and it looked really nice. A nice place to relax out of the heat and feel calm and relaxed. Even though there was shared bathrooms, the way they were designed wasn't a problem. i.e. toilet and shower are one cubicle and there space to put your clothes so they... More

We choose a room with 2 queen size beds and slept well every night. There were some mosquitoes although we had insect repellent. The walls could be cleaned in the common areas to remove mould, cleaned and repainted.

We stayed here for 1 night in our way to way to Singapore. The owner did a good job at renovating this guest house, the internal court yard is so peaceful. Rooms are basic and very clean. Melacca is a small place yet it is still conveniently located. Unbeatable value for money.

Layang Layang is a lovely and laid-back guesthouse. We spent 2 nights here. It is located in a perfect location --just on the street behind the Jonker street with just a few minute walk to there, but far enough from the noise and crowd.

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
