“Comfortable Boutique Option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2007

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!

The FCC Angkor is a beautiful hotel with a great restaurant/bar. The staff was extremely helpful. The pool was beautiful, but we didn't really take advantage of it - after hours of visiting temples we were more tempted to take a nap in the air-conditioning than lie by the pool. We got a pool view room - which was not worth the extra $ in my opinion. You have to keep the curtain closed to get any privacy...so you don't see the pool anways! We really enjoyed the restaurant and had several meals there... the bar also looked nice, although there was rarely anyone there.

A very stylish hotel with excellent spa facilities that made for a very relaxed stay in Siem Reap.
The pool was just what was needed after a lengthy tour around the Angkor temples. We used the car and guide service through the hotel, which was good value.
The restaurant is excellent and the breakfast was a real plus.

AMAZING! We wanted a boutique experience for our whole holiday and after reading many reviews we went for FCC Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Siem Reap was the perfect base for exploring temples.

I wasn't sure how long to stay - sisn't want to long but didn't want too short either - 4 ngiths - perfect. I arranged our driver for each day and English speakin gtour guide as we wanted to get the most out of our experience. FCC Angkor took care of it all. Marina met us on arrival at the bus station with a beaming smile and she ran oevr our itinerary and she updated all the changes we made and we saw her every day before we went to dinner. Our room - garden view - Ale Vera - lovely - simple and contemporary - great rain showers.

Only 30 rooms and it created the perfect feel. Teh black slate salt water pool was brillaint and lovely to cool off in in between temple tours. Teh Spa was also lovely and offers 30% off treatments between 10am & 3pm so we got back early one day and took advantage of this!

The Restaurant was wonderful. Extensive menu - could never decide what to have. Breakfast in room or in restaurant was also lovely.

FCC Angkor was perfect for our holiday, personalised service goes a long way to making a trip special and they really did it for us!

We recently spent 3 nights at FCC Angkor, and would highly recommend this hotel. We prefer a smaller, boutique style hotel, and FCC exceeded our expectations. The hotel staff were all very nice, and very attentive. The hotel decor is very nice, and the rooms are very pleasant. The grounds are an oasis in a bustling little town. The pool was great - a very pleasant respite after a hot day at the temples.

The restaurant was OK.

Very nice quiet and stylish hotel/spa/restaurant in the heart of Siem Reap. Unlike other places, I really feel like I am in Siem Reap, and not just in some random hotel.

The value-for-money is great, the spa package was a good idea and the massages are first class.

FCC arranged a great guide, who was separated from his family and sent off to a work brigade by the Khymer Rouge at the age of nine. Eventually he got a degree in History, and it has been great learning about the ancient and recent history of Cambodia from him. I doubt we could have hooked up with this fellow on our own, but FCC seems to be able to tap into the best of Siem Reap.

We read the reviews of FCC and thought it sounded great. We spent three nights there and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the rooms were fantastic, and the pool was great for cooling down at night after being in the heat of the day at the temples. At night the staff light the candles in your room and put flowers on your pillow, I would highly recommend it.
