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)

We've stayed at a lot of mediocre budget accommodation, so this place was such a breath of freaks air! The perfect combo of happy, helpful staff, spotless rooms, nice linen, clean communal areas, and spade loads of historical character & charm. Lovely!

Nice and clean place to stay, very central location so walkable to the Malacca tourist attractions. Shared bathrooms are clean, courtyard is beautiful like the pics. The bed was very comfy too. However bedroom and few common areas need a coat of paint to spruce it up as paint was peeling quite badly on our bedroom walls (rule of thumb: anything that you wouldn't put on the AirB&B pics/website probably needs to be addressed).

This is a actually guest house and not normal house as airbnb provide usually. But I can enjoy sating here. Just one things I have to say that wall of room is very thin and voice of next room made us wake up until late. That was big notandum if you will stay here. これは実際はゲストハウスです。スタッフなどもとても感じがよく、町の中心地でもあるので利便性はとても高かったです。一点注意事項を述べるとしたら、部屋の壁が薄いので他の宿泊者の声が夜中まで聞こえて寝にくかったです。

A perfect trip in melaka .The house was very close to the old city, and the owner was very friendly. We'll go again next time.

Convenient location, the staff is very friendly but if you need a quiet environment here is not suitable, sound insulation is bad, and the moldy taste in room

Bathroom cleanliness and furnishing condition (for example our room's doorlock) are not as great compared to my previous visit two years ago maybe due to lack of good effort in maintenance. However if u prefer location with walking distance to main attractions it's a great choice! Just right next to the Jonker street yet the street itself is quiet!
