We stayed two times at Velkommen and were both times very satisfied. One time we got a huge room, with plenty of space, the second time it was a rather small one, but still ok with AC and daily room service. Unfortunately, the bathroom sinks were a little smelly. But otherwise they were very clean. Also the laundry was very... More

Pros: Very friendly staff. One of the cleanest bathrooms I had during our SE ASIA backpacking trip. The bathroom was huge! It was almost as big as our bedroom space. Also, Velkommen Guesthouse stored away our backpacks on the day we checked out since we weren't leaving until the evening. They even let us shower for free across the street... More

My friend and I were only in Phomn Penh for one night... When we arrived we were surprised at the size of the room we had as it was very spacious - however, we returned from lunch to find one of the beds was soaking wet from the rain that afternoon which must've leaked through the ceiling and soaked my...

This is a review for both Velkommen Guesthouse and Velkommen Backpackers, they are essentially the same complex located across the street from each other, sharing the same management and travel booking. I stayed one night in a single at the backpackers, a pretty dismal experience - room was dark and dirty enough that I was afraid to touch anything and... More

I stayed at the standard room, and it was clean, loved the cable channels, air-condition and the private shower. My only gripe is that it was on the 4th floor, not very fun when you have to carry your luggage down when checking out. Other than that, it was really good value for money. The staff were also very polite.

This is a great guesthouse for the location if you are on a budget. It is right on the riverside not far from the night market. The staff are extremely friendly and will book bus tickets for onward travel. We were in a budget double room with private bathroom. It was a bit noisy as our room was at the... More

A good and hassle free guesthouse centrally located. Manager and staffs are friendly and room is clean. Request for higher floors if you are a light sleeper.. but be ready to climb the flights of stairs up as there are no lift ..

We only stayed in Velkommen for one night but found it to be perfectly located by the riverside. The National Museum, Palace and Central Market are only a short walk away, as are numerous bars and restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with air con, TV and hot water shower, all for a very good price. The owner and... More
