We just spent 5 days for the FCC Angkor and couldn't have been happier with the experience. Upon checking in we were greeted with a cool drink and a moist towel. We didn't like the first room that we were shown, but they had a room on the second floor and set it up for us while we waited. Once we settled in to our room, the hotel brought us a tray of desserts. The hotel is set up around a main 2 story structure, the restaurant is upstairs with an open kitchen, a lounge area and 2 eating areas on the balconies overlooking the garden and reflecting pool. The hotel is open to the street along the river and you can sit upstairs and watch the world go by. The rooms are modern and well designed. Perhaps the only drawback is the wall of windows in each room. If you have your curtains open anyone can see into your room. With the curtains closed the rooms seems a bit dark. We would push back the heavier of the two curtains and leave the lighter one to block the view but let in the light. The hotel has a nice spa and lots of modern interesting stores for shopping, including the McDermott Gallery. These stores do not contain the usual tourist trinkets sold downtown so it is worthwhile to look for something different to bring home. The pool area is lovely. The happy hour is fun with half price drinks.
The really nice thing about this hotel is that it feels as though it is part of the town, not isolated from Siem Reap. The location couldn't have been better. The restaurant draws other tourists not simply the hotel guests. The menu has a wide variety of choices for anytime of the day. The breakfast menu includes toast, granola, fresh fruit, pastries plus a full range of egg dishes and local Khmer/Laos noodle dishes. The coffee was the best we had during our month in Asia and you can order as many as you like. If you are leaving for a sunrise visit to the temples, they will arrange breakfast room service as early as 4:30 AM.
What I liked best about the FCC was the amazing friendly staff who went out of their way for our needs. Our driver Thet was absolutely great and we used him on 4 of our 5 days there. I wish I was going back again next week!
