The space

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.

What we have to offer:

• Coffee, tea, biscuits, and alkaline water all day long (self-service)
• Free WiFi (lobby area)
• Refrigerator and basic dishware at pantry
• Towels and hairdryers upon request, subject to availability
• 8 shared bathrooms (unique laboratory design, equipped with hot / cold shower, shampoo and shower gel, clean and well-maintained at all times)
• Washing machine (surcharge apply)

Great location, friendly staff, the historical wooden building has a nice courtyard and architecture. The downside of this is that the sound proofing is not that good.

We loved our stay in this guesthouse! It was a great location! As it is an old building it was a bit noisy but we still slept soundly.

Host hasn't answer when i arrived around 11pm. Even no one was in reception so i tried to find where the staff is. Finally found a one staff sleeping but she said i am not in the list of guest. It was too awful situation. I gave her my passport and went to any room not i booked, and next day the staff said i was in the list. i will never ever be there again!!
