About Layang Layang Guesthouse Melaka

Located in the vibrant heart of this historic city, Layang Layang Guesthouse Melaka is a store-front style property with a quirky interior offering clean accommodation and traditional Malaysian hospitality.

Rooms are spartan but do feature much-needed air conditioning and gleaming wood floors. Eight spacious bathrooms are shared among all 20 rooms.

The hosts and staff pride themselves on their knowledge of the area and will gladly offer assistance with tours. They also have onsite bicycle rental for those who want to explore under their own steam. Free Wi-Fi is available in the public areas.

There is a communal kitchen fully stocked with tea, coffee, water and sweet treats. There are an incredible number of restaurants in the surrounding streets, many serving tasty Peranakan cuisine.

While guests will find the ever-popular Jonker Street just five minutes walk from Layang Layang Guesthouse Melaka, a pleasure cruise on the nearby Malacca River is also highly recommended.

Positive Reviews

Convenient for the city centre attractions

Guests liked the convenience of being right in the centre of the city. They reported that it was easy to get to the tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and other amenities that had drawn them to the city. Popular Jonker Street was the most often mentioned attraction and said to be just a couple of minutes away on foot.

Quaint design and atmosphere

Guests really liked the atmosphere at this guesthouse. They described both the décor and the service provided by the hosts and staff as traditional, calling back to a kinder and gentler age. They seemed to feel they were in a beautiful place with a historic connection.

Very clean throughout

Guests reported finding the hostel to be very clean. They were especially happy that the bathrooms, which are communal, were kept in a neat and tidy shape at all times.

Negative Reviews

Noisy inside and out

Guests complained that they had to endure quite a lot of noise here. For a start, the immediate neighbourhood was described as very busy, including at night, with noise from the streets easily entering the building. Many also reported that other guests could be quite loud and inconsiderate.

Problems with mosquitoes

Many guests reported finding a very large number of mosquitoes in their room. They felt that the staff could have taken additional measures to try to reduce this problem.

Poor Wi-Fi

It seems that the majority of comments made about the Wi-Fi here are negative. Guests felt that the service was unreliable. Even when they could get a connection, the data speeds were said to be slow.
