“Nice five rooms guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

I choosed to stay at this guesthouse because it was cheap and they have bathroom with hot water, air con + fan, fridge, TV and safetybox in the rooms. The room was very clean and I had a good night sleep. The location is good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant downstairs had very good food and my favourite was the Chicken roll.

The room here was one of the quietest rooms we stayed in during our whole 3 month trip - it didn't have windows but that was beneficial considering the noise at night on the road. It was clean, came with a mini fridge and a good bed. The narrow stairs to the room may present a problem for the infirm, but were manageable for us.

The location was good for exploring the city and is conveniently situated near the Mekong Express bus station, so you can quickly escape the extremely persistent Tuk Tuk drivers.

We couldn't get WiFi in the room, but it worked downstairs in the restaurant - hopefully it's been fixed now.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The owner Edvin gave us a map and pointed out places of interest. One of the major downsides is that it is located on a very seedy street that has many "girlie" bars and the clientele that attracts.

We stayed at the Velkommen Inn for a couple of nights in March 2011, and it turned out to be a good choice. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. But the guesthouse itself is located on a lively street conveniently located for a stroll along the Sisowath Quay. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, although the guesthouse has a bar and serves food. It was a good value proposition, and I would be apt to stay here again the next time I am in Phnom Penh.

Velkommen inn is situated in pub street right by the river, so the location is perfect. The staff, and especially the owner Edvind, were incredibly helpful, and assisted us with whatever we needed.

We had an enjoyable stay at Velkommen Inn. Edvin and Thida were great hosts- very friendly, informative and helpful.
The rooms were well equipped with television, AC, fridge and hot water, and we weren't disturbed by noise as other guests have mentioned.
Internet was excellent- best reception so far in SE Asia.
Breakfast was good and I certainly recommend the muesli.
I would recommend staying here.

We were a party of 4 persons that stayed at Velkommen inn for 3 nights. Since we are from Norway it was nice to meet the owner, Edvin, that also is from Norway. He fixed everything for us and even gave us his best room for 2 nights for the same price as a normal room. This because the normal rooms was already taken.

Velkommen inn has great food. We ate our breakfast and dinner there all three days. Why try something else if they serve you so good food. Try the norwegian salmon for breakfast (real Norwegian salmon) and the Norwegian meatballs for dinner! The best Norwegian food in Asia!

Velkommen inn lies in a pubstreet, and it can be a little noisy at late evenings, but it wasn't a problem for us.
If you sit outside in the street be aware of the monkeys that suddenly appares! They are hilarious as they often steal the flowerpots for dinner! :)

This is a place that we will reccomend! Its cheap, good food and Edvin fixes everything you need.
