A little more commercial than the sister property in Phnom Penh, but the same recipe also works well in Siem Reap.
This is certainly not the cheapest option in town, but is very comfortable and has most of the trappings of the bigger hotels in town (pool, spa, restaurant etc) without the hundreds of rooms and lack of personal service. The rooms are spotless and well decorated and the service is friendly and efficient.
We booked transport for the temples (one of the tuk tuks) through the hotel and can highly recommend this option - you may save a couple of dollars going the independent route, but going through the hotel is a lot less hassle.
If you are in Siem Reap for a few days, opt for the three day pass and take it slowly to avoid temple fatigue. Go and buy your pass at about five in the afternoon after which time, you get the bonus of the first evening free. Take a wander to Angkor in the late afternoon and whet your appetite for the days to come. In the following days, try and spend some time away from the temples and enjoy the slightly chaotic charm of Siem Reap.
The FCC is in an excellent position on the river and close enough to walk to town if you are feeling moderately energetic - it is also far enough from the centre to be quiet at night and a tuk tuk into town should cost about $2 or $5 return (including the wait).
Even if you don't stay at the FCC, the bar is worth a trip and there is also an excellent gallery selling photos of Angkor that you wish you had managed to take!
