Velkommen Guesthouse
Ranked #12 of 333 Phnom Penh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I decided to book with Velkommen Guesthouse based on the reviews I've read from Tripadvisor. For the price we paid for the room, I think it's a good value for money. The room we stayed in was spacious (as well as the bathroom) and was always kept clean. Location is also central. Staff are also helpful.

Stayed in Velkommen for 10 days and happy with room. Very practical, comfy bed, a table set with two chairs for either eating or using computer, TV with tv stand and fridge under, garbage bin and the basket for used clothed, closet with 4 small shelves to put clothes on and the top where you can leave all your bags there. The bathroom is good but have no toilet shower, not sure why they don't make it. Impressed with the food as well, we ordered food to eat in our room most of the time in our stay.

Good location, all u need is within the food steps. We paid $18 per night for our room, might be able to find somewhere cheaper with similar quality, they are one of the good ones in this price range.

Arriving after a long bus ride we were warmly received. A staff member carried our bags to our room and offered us all sorts of tourist advice. The room was clean and spacious and the bathroom newly renovated. Only complaint is that the window did not let in any light as the building next to us was a mere 12inches. Great location for bars and restaurants, and close to the royal palace and food market. Around the corner is the river and the main downtown street. May try to negotiate a lower price though.

Having stayed at this clean ,comfortable and friendly guesthouse on more than one occasion now.I feel compelled to write my first ever review.I would totally recommend this place to stay,as the rooms a very reasonably priced,and are kept squeaky clean (something that i find quite rare in Asia.I would also like to say the staff are some of the most helpful people i have come across in this part of the world,nothing is ever too much of a bother for them.It has a nice friendly bar and restaurant,with good quality food.I can not pick a fault with this place,even its location is spot on.Very satisfied customer,sure to return..

I booked a standard 4 bed ensuite from Velkommen expecting a 4 single bed. Arrived and was told that the 4 beds room was taken by someone else and we have to take 2 double room. We were fine for the 1st night thinking that we will move to 4 bed room the next day. We did move the next day but to a 2 double bed room, which I think it is totally different from what I expected from the booking.

I am a repeat stayer with Velkommen, so that says plenty in itself. This time I stayed 2 weeks,in the top penthouse suite. This is a spacious, comfortable room with a large balcony overlooking the river in one direction and towards Central Market in the other. Great to sit out there with a cold drink and watch the approaching afternoon thunderstorm. The hotel is in an excellent location, close to the river and all the bars and restaurants, but without the thumping music of nightclubs to disturb your sleep. The staff are very friendly and helpful - I observed many backpackers using the travel service to book onward bus tickets. The hotel is also the base for the Phnom Penh Hash House Harriers running group for those interested in getting out into the countryside and seeing a bit of the real Cambodia. I will be back at Velcommen Inn in a months time for a running weekend, and am bringing friends along.

We stayed here for two nights. The room was very nice....very big and clean with a good ensuite and shower. It had a fridge and WIFI as well. Bed was good size but pillows were terrible and bed was uncomfortable and aircon dripped onto our head at night. We went to S21 and Killing Fields with a tuk tuk that is outside the guesthouse, they have a few tuk tuks outside all the time. The guesthouse is beside the river and has lots of restaurants and bars beside it.
The staff, however, were not very helpful. We booked a bus to Siem Reap through them which they told us were new, very comfortable and reliable. We asked them about the Mekong Express but they said that this was the bus to get; it was more expensive but worth it and much better. The bus was a tiny minibus which never arrived to pick us up in the morning and was poor in comparison to the Mekong Express bus we got to Phnom Penh.
The morning we were leaving they kept trying to make us sit outside instead of inside when we had checked out. We asked them a few times if they were sure the bus was coming for us and they lied to us, laughed at us and never rang the company. Finally, when we insisted they ring in front of us, they did.
