My mother and I visited Siem Reap recently and stayed at the FCC.
Without having experienced other hotels in Siem Reap this might be a hasty judgement, but the hotel, in my view, measures up to any five star hotels in Hong Kong or Singapore. The better part about it is that it's cheaper. A standard Garden View room is about $100 vs. standard room at the Conrad (Hong Kong) going at about $200 and the Fullerton (S'pore) about $150. FCC is definitely a VALUE FOR MONEY DEAL.
I chose the Temple Cruise package (3 days/2 nights) which includes car pick-ups to and from the airport, transportation to temples, a few meals and massages everyday. Tour guide is not included, but you can easily book a tour guide through the hotel even at 10:30 pm.
The rooms are fairly comfortable with all the amenities except for a full-length mirror and a clock (FCC, take note!). As someone mentioned below it's probably best to avoid rooms Honey and Aloe Vera. I specifically asked for rooms other than these two and got a garden view room on the second floor, which was nice and quiet.
The staff were very friendly and trying their best to be most accomodating. The best part about my stay at the hotel was the massages at the Visaya Spa. Recommend the Harmony massage (90 mins) and Foot massage (60 mins) after a day of temple-hopping. Last but not least, the hotel is very conveniently located about 10 minutes walking distance from the old market.
Restaurant food was okay but not too inspiring. I wish they had more of the local food or specialties in the menu instead of commodities like burgers or pizza.
Overall, the hotel was a great choice adding enjoyment to our trip.
