absolutely loved this place -- the BASIL ROOM was great and the whole complex is elegant, soothing, and relaxing after a hectic and hot day at the temples. It's a mixture of modern, clean simple lines with nice Cambodian touches. The rooms are attached but have a bungalow feel which means each one is accessed from an outdoor causeway (which requires getting in and out quickly to make sure no mosquitoes sneak in -- not a problem in big multi story hermetically sealed hotels)
The FCC is just a few blocks out from the hustle and bustle of down town Siem Riep where many of the restaurants are. It's a 10-15 minute walk by the riverside park or 5 minute ride by tuk tuk. It's super close to La Residence D'Ankgor (if you can't afford to stay there, it's definitely worth having a drink at the end of a long day at their upstairs bar). Viroth is also a great restaurant option that's around the corner from La Residence.
I switched hotels after a couple nights at the Ankgor Holiday hotel - which is a clean, safe, comfortable hotel but lacks the elegance and relaxing nature that the FCC had. After a couple days at the temples I realized I wanted a place where I could come back at 4-5pm and relax by the elegant pool-- FCC provided this. The staff was incredibly helpful -- even finding me a cooking class to accommodate my specific schedule at the Tara Hotel which was fantastic.
