Reviewed November 9, 2012

stayed at the double queen room, enough for 4 people. the room is big, bathroom big, no balcony and small windows. no problem if you use the place for sleeping and bathing only. got TV, wi-fi signal not that reliable but it's there. Nice lounge area at the Ground floor. I won't have any doubts if I need a place to check in here again. Staff are friendly and helpful, Arranged a nice tuk-tuk driver for a reasonable price to tour the city.

My favorite and eight other friends during our long journey. Very nice, spacious rooms, clean bathrooms, good location because it is very close to the edge of the river and a five minute walk to the night market :)
All in all, We felt Velkommen provided excellent value for its cleanliness and location, I would recommend this place to everyone!!

Stayed here with 3 friends, and it was awesome. big clean room, newly furnished bathroom, large balcony with seating and coffee table, tv, fridge, free wifi and most of all great location, 1-minute wallk to the riverside. we got a spacious room and overlooking the Velkommen Dormitory, right opposite the guesthouse. You might want to stay there, if you want to meet and mingle with other backpackers, but if long night-baby sleep is what u are looking for, so this is the perfect spot to stay.

The only thing is the entrance will bu shut at midnight. so u have to knock to enter. and in this case, the Velkommen dorm wins.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for about 3 nights. Paid about US16 per night for a double bedroom with A/C, TV and attached bathroom. Its clean, no bedbugs, but the room is quite small. There is not any space for you to walk around although the bathroom is nice and clean.

The food is quite pricey although decent. I would suggest going elsewhere for food. It is close to the river.

We wanted to stay here again after our trip to Takeo and sent an email to them to make a booking. They replied almost immediately which was pretty efficient of them.

The staffs are nice and friendly.

They have their own bar below and it has a pretty relaxed social atmosphere. I saw the same ol' few dudes that came to the bar each evening. Ha!

The wifi on level 4 was not working for many days. We made complaints but it only got to work on the last day of our stay. Bummer.

There is no lift so you'll be working your thighs and glutes if you get a room on the upper floors.

Room Tip: We were on Level 4 and had problems getting wifi for days. You may want to choose a room which is cl...

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.
