This 10-square-meter room has a window that overlooks the Harmony Street. Noises from the street are expected.

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)
• Bicycles for rent
• Strategic location, 1-minute walk to Hard Rock Cafe and Jonker Street

Street noises are to be expected at night, but you can still get a good night's sleep due to the comfort of the bed and aircon. The room that I got had a faulty door which was hard to close completely. I was afraid that something might be stolen. But everything was exactly how it was left even after spending a whole day out, so this is a really safe guesthouse! Everyone was friendly and nice. The hostess even let us leave our heavy bags in the guesthouse even after checking out so that we could still roam around freely until we had to depart for our coach back home!! I would definitely recommend this airbnb to my friends :)
