Great staff, really friendly atmosphere. The food was good and the location is great for exploring and taking in the sunsets on the riverside. The wifi is really fast, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We liked it so much we booked in for a few more nights on our way through to Siem Reap. Only downside for some might be that there is construction work going on, but we get up early so it wasn't a problem for us at all!

We had a lovely time in PP - Guesthouse treated us well. Staff really GREAT - helped us w/everything and anything. Private room small but clean with no view. Breakfast not included. Location near the river - restaurants bars etc. but also stink of the market Overall a good little place to stay - value decent but not the best.


Very nice place to stay as a couple. Room was nice and clean with a very good private bathroom and Aircon. Hotel is in a busy street but 10 meters away frm the main road along the river and just steps from restaurants and cafes, nice grocery store right next to it and the owner is super friendly and know some tuk-tuk drivers who can take you around town who are also very friendly.


We stayed in one of the superior rooms, which was very spacious, and very clean. The location is great--right on the riverside, with access to many restaurants and bars, as well as the market right around the corner. The best part about Velkommen is the staff. They were incredibly friendly and helpful every day. We really enjoyed our tour with Rattanak, who drove us to the Killing Fields, and chatted with us every evening. Edwin has created a special place in Velkommen. We highly recommend!

Excellent location,friendly staff right in the heart of Phnom Penh.Serious and at the same time cool.


The room was very basic. I believe you are paying for location, not the amenities. The room had a nice firm bed, tv, fan, AC, and wall mounted safe. The bathroom was large and had a nice shower. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Talk to him early on in your stay if you know when and where you will be traveling next. Breakfast was good (not included, but fair price). Location was great! There is a local market nearby, sights of the city walkable and the Giant Ibis bus stop is close too.


We loved to stay at your guesthouse. Thanks for the warm welcome, the pleasent surprise with the rooftop room, and for the help & advice offered. If we are again in the area we make sure to come back!


Very basic accommodation with mattress on a floor and fan. Helpful English born owner.


The average hostel really. The rooms were pretty small in comparison to others we've stayed in, with lots of stairs to climb!


Staff extremely helpful, good breakfast. We came with two Kids aged 9 and 11. Major sights in walking distance, family room totally okay. Not so nice: window of Our room faced next House just about 1 metre across a narrow alley. However, being away most of the time, it didn't bother us much.
