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!

We really made a good choice when we booked this guesthouse. When we arrived, the friendly receptionist greeted us. Of course the atmosphere is old fashioned but clean and cozy.

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.

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
