Reviewed July 8, 2007

Stayed 2 nights at the FCC Angkor in June 2007. Beautiful boutique hotel with many modern amenities, including a rainhead shower, spa-quality bath products and aromatherapy candles. Crisp white sheets, dark wood furnishings in an airy and spacious room with lots of storage space. Interesting room setup, with the bathroom accessible via a floor-to-ceiling sliding wall (ie. no full privacy as the sliding wall is made of wooden slats). Free internet access if you have your own laptop; otherwise a laptop can be rented for $5 per hour. Staff were extremely friendly and responsive. Not located on the main strip, but if your objective in Siem Reap is to see the surrounding temples, then you really don't need to be on the main strip at all.

We have just spent 3 days at the FFC Angkor and loved it. We chose a Classic Weekender Package which is currently offering an extra night for free. The staff were all so pleasant, organised a guide for our tour to Angkor Wat and just went that little bit extra. The rooms always smelt so nice because there were little oil burners with wonderful smelling essential oils in them. Pool is lovely and the restaurant has a nice outlook. The only thing that was not perfect was the food - the local/asian style food was very good, the western style food was ordinary. Breakfasts were good.

Couple stayed in FCC Angkor June 2007, classic weekender package with pool view. We spent a lot (for Cambodia) but overall I think it was worth it. The room was spacious, modern, and comfortable, though as someone previously mentioned, it's hard to keep the mosquitoes out. Be careful opening and closing the sliding door. Pool was beautiful, salt water, refreshing. We had a lot included with the package -- one dinner, two lunches, two breakfasts, 1.5 days of templing plus sunrise at Angkor, and airport transfers. Transport was efficient and great each time. We also added on a guide for the 1.5 days, Rous Ry -- he was great and works quite often with the hotel, so recommended. Guides are extra if you want them, but worth it -- we would not have gotten as much out of the Angkor experience without Ry.

Food was pretty good at the restaurant -- not a lot of Cambodian-only, but Euro and fusion. We were pleased with nearly evertything we got, and the fact that you can order anything on the menu inclusive with the weekender package (rather than ordering off of a set menu) was really good value. The restaurant is not cheap for Siem Reap standards, and I may not have eaten there so frequently if not for the package.

We also got massages at the attached Visaya spa -- very nice, professional, great massages. Again, not cheap by SE Asia standards, but we felt it was worth it (an hour for US$40).

The whole property had a cool vibe to it....chill music, well decorated, lovely. Staff was very, very courteous -- I had exchanged many emails with the tour desk to arrange the various components of our days in SR....very patient, accommodating, etc. Tour desk also pre-booked and -paid for our air tickets from SR to Vietnam upon request, which we paid for when checking out. This was helpful and the tickets did not cost any more than list price, but booking with local airlines can be tricky, so this was one less thing we had to worry about. Service was really great and is what put the FCC up another notch for us.

There are probably cheaper places or better-value-for-money places in SR, but we were really happy with the FCC and would stay again. Nice if you like a modern vibe, and a good place to relax and crash after a long day of templing.

I will start with the positives. We stayed in a poolside room which is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. However, I do not think that it is worth the extra $...go with the garden room. Check-in was nice with complimentary iced tea. The location is great. The pool is nice and it is essential to be able to cool off at the end of the day. The shops at the hotel are great. However, overall we were disappointed with our two night stay. The food at the restaurant was terrible. Our bed linens were stained. Dozens of mosquitoes in our bathroom and bedroom. It is extremely slippery around the pool. I just expect complete attention to detail for the amount of money we spent. We had friends that stayed at the Shinta Mani (2 blocks away), and it seemed like they got a better value. Their room was not as nicely decorated, but it was still very nice. Their pool area is gorgeous and the restaurant at the Shinta Mani was amazingly delicious.

If you go to Siem Reap don't even think about staying anywhere else. Sure, you can go cheaper...but the FCC is such a cool place you should try and stretch your budget.

We don't normally go head over heels for hotels as we're normally out doing stuff but this place was so chilled and friendly with a great restaurant we ate in every night...and we've never ever done that before. At about $100 a night it's a snip. Try and afford a pool side room and borrow the hotel's electric bikes to check out the town for yourself.

And while we're at it, book Mr Marom's tuk tuk to see the temples. $12 a day, nice guy, doesn't talk too much, knows his [--] and ask to do the floating houses on the Tonle Sap lake. Fascinating. Mr Marom has a website so you can email him and book him upfront.

after reading the reviews here and on their website, i expected the FCC to be pretty amazing, and it is.
we booked the classic weekender (with one extra night free) so that was a good deal already.
got picked up fm Siem Reap airport (which was very modern and impressive also) by the driver, who gave us cold towels and water in the car, that was nice.
during the drive you could see the ravages of war on the land (it was quite barren) and the poor conditions the cambodians lived in

on arrival, we checked into the side lobby - where we were given another refreshing cold drink, then
we were immediately taken to our room (we chose a pool facing one) to check in.
we were given a run down of our itinarary.
first was the herbal steam (which turned out to be just a sauna with some herbal essences) not too amazing
then we had a dinner in the evening. we told the check in person to book us for 7 pm but when we arrived at the restauruant there was no reservation, that was a bit disapointing as it was our first night and we wanted a better table.

the next day we went to the temples via tuk-tuk and that was great.
we found out we had a complimentary lunch incl for 2 days (which was not mentioned in the weekender rate, so that was nice!) these meal vouchers allow you to order anything from their menu, excl. drinks.

the restaurant (there is only one) is situated on the first level, and is an open restaurant and kitchen so be sure to get a table under a fan. but that was ok for us, as it wasn't too hot when we were there (there was some rain before)
Everything on the menu was excellent (mainly european with a few cambodian dishes)
the staff are friendly and efficient.
the problem though was it was too good! As in the evenings, tour loads of tourists would come and fill up the whole restaurant (hence make sure you make a reservation!)
we didn't realise this on the first night.Then after, we knew to come after 8pm and by then ,most of the tourists had left.

the rooms were luxurious, with a lounge area outside .(one small gripe, the tv is just a small computer monitor (not lcd flatscreen tv as stated in their website) albeit was flat screen monitor!
but that was ok as we didn't watch much tv,

another part of the weekender package was "sunrise at angkor wat" We woke at 4.30 am and when we went to the restaurant - no one was there! (i think we were meant to order room service bfast but no one had informed us of this!)
and after we were taken to angkor wat for the sunrise....with 500 other tourists! (seems like the sunrise thing is something all the hotels offer!) it wasn't really that amazing, IMO.(so go later in the morning, if you can't fathom getting up at 4.30!) but other than that the temples were amazing. (we bought some candy for the children who were around the temples, they seemed to appreciate that)

despite some small issues, we loved the FCC and the cambodian people and would go back in a heartbeat!

We satyed at the fcc for two nights and had an excellent time , Its my third trip to Angkor and in the past I stayed at the Grand hotel and the Sofitel, and the FCC although much cheaper beats them hands down, It has an excellent restaurant and great small hotel feel , very good downtown location which while being in the center of town still feels like an oasis , very stylish without been over the top ...
