“Kind of like a mini-overlook from The Shining, but in a good way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Having stayed at Velkommen in Phnom Penh a couple of times, I chose to stay at the Siem Reap branch when I went there. Edvin, the proprietor, was very knowledgeable and great for a chat about the state of the world. As soon as you walk into the place, the first thing you'll think is: this place is only $16 a night?!?!

Some people have mentioned the location, but if you're not a complete whale you'll enjoy the beautiful 10 minute stroll along the river into the bar area. I did this numerous times with my girlfriend both at night and day, and it was great at any hour.

The place itself has some good food and fun staff. I enjoyed my stay at Velkommen.

We have just stayed here for 3 nights. As soon as we walked though the door the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is right by the museum and not far from pub street where there are loads of restaurants and bars to choose from. We only had breakfast in the hotel as we were out all day and it was very nice. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here especially of you are on a budget it's great.

Also Edvin is very knowledgable about places in Southeast Asia and he gave us some great advice and was happy to help us book transport to Bangkok.

We found out about this guesthouse from the many good Tripadvisor reviews. It does stay true to all the great comments.

Room was big, clean and airy. From the first view, everything was very comfy and has a warm atmosphere. Staffs were excellent and very helpful. Our bus from Ho Chi Minh city arrived late and by the time the tuk tuk sent us to the guesthouse, it was past midnight. We are very grateful to the staff (sorry we didn't manage to get her name) who accommodated us and check-in was a breeze. The owner was friendly and made sure all the guests were cared for.

The location was not a problem for us as tuk tuks were easily available. We walked a couple of times as well to the town and around.

We will definitely come back on our next trip to Siem Reap.

We stayed here because we had been pleased with our stay at the Velkommen in Phnom Penh. This guest house was even nicer with very spacious rooms. We were picked up for free and arrived at 11PM but the staff cooked us dinner which was very kind. They also organised a tuk tuk driver for a day exploring the temples, and our driver Russ was really smiley and friendly. There was everything we needed- air-conditioning, a fridge and even a pool table. Really good value for money, would definitely recommend.

As all the above reviews state this is a lovely place to stay, the staff are fantastic. They were more than happy to cook us breakfast at 4:45 am before our trip to the temples! They also organised a tuk tuk for our journeys out to the temples, it cost $14 including 5am pick up. We had a lovely tuk tuk driver Mr Sok Mai. Great large rooms, lots of hot water and the coldest beer in Siam Reap

Huge clean room with powerful A/C, lovely staff who cooked us really nice breakfasts (including very early in the morning before our bus), knowledgeable manager who was fun to have drinks with in the evening, and great location for going to Angkor Wat. Guesthouse also had nice pool table and lots of books to borrow, and a computer in the communal area as well. Laundry service was quick and cheap, and it's possible to hire bikes for $2 a day which is a great way to visit the temples. Good to go through the guesthouse if you want a tuk-tuk driver, we had Walter who took us on the long circuit at Angkor, including the sunrise, and was really nice and spoke great English and the price ($15) was good.

Only downside was that we think we overpaid slightly because we booked through agoda - the room was listed online at $16 per night but when we arrived we found out the room should have been $14. It was still worth it though, we just should have turned up rather than booked ahead as it's low season and they weren't full.

Planned three nights in Siem Reap - ended up staying two more nights, much because of Velkommen Guesthouse.
The young and happy staff made me feel very welcome, and gave me good advise on the temple visit and nightlife of siem reap. Their tuk-tuk drivers are polite and reliable. Dorm and bathroom were clean and spacious, and the lobby/bar area was a great place to connect with other guests. The manager also gave me helpful tips concerning the rest of my trip in se Asia. Location is perfect for temple visits, and walking distance to downtown. Will definately stay here if i ever visit siem reap again.
