Tomb raiding in Siem Repp

A travel blog entry by jon_lowra2014

After our once in a life time journey on the 'hotel bus' is was a huge relief to get our feet on the ground and find our hotel. We booked a hotel in a great location with breakfast and a swimming pool and all for £14 per night! Not bad eh?! We dumped the bags as our room wasn't ready and headed for a wonder. Every other step you take in Siem Repp you hear clapping or "tuk tuk" which can get slighting annoying but a quick shake of your head or a ...

... discouraged as there was absolutely no 'safety standard' in place--per Trip Advisor, etc. You really have to have faith, I think I've said that before on this blog. We swerved and honked for hours with people lining the aisles on tiny plastic stools. It gets better! There was a nun, 2 monks...no, it's not one of those jokes...locals and a handful of Westerners. When Regan saw the Westerners board she started to cry from relief--I'm serious. So the best part was ...

... towers are completely unadorned, and it was one heck of a steep, rickety, hot climb to establish that fact beyond all doubt. There were extensive restoration works ongoing here and quite a lot of the temple is under scaffolding and off limits. Here however we met someone who stopped us in our tracks. We are very used to the crowds of hawkers coming to the tuk tuk as we pull in, but this lady was different. She was sitting with her young daughter and asked us if we ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews FCC Angkor Siem Reap

    Amazing serenity

    from

    After quite exhausting visits of Angko temples, once back to our hotel room in FCC we could feel fully relaxed the rooms design and attentionate care received from the SPA and room personal gives an amazing feeling of serenity. In the restaurant, the colonial style remains very unique. It was not our first experience in FCC Angkor, but if the hotel is offering more rooms and services, the feeling remains the same: we meet here the traditional cambodian hospitality in a very special environment. It gives you a taste of the past in a confortable and unique setting.

    Very Poor Service at FCC

    from

    Like the previous reviewer we booked this hotel because of the reviews and also wanting a boutique hotel. We arrived at Siem Reap airport from Phnom Penh and waited for our car to pick us up .... nothing arrived even though I had booked it directly through the hotel. WE got in a taxi and arrived at the hotel reception. I stated that no one picked us up, to which the response was well we didn't have your flight details', to which I showed the confirmation email from FCC and the flight details. 'Oh' was the reply ..... sorry would have been nice.

    What a disappointment

    from

    I booked the FCC Angkor based specifically on Trip Adviser reviews and my desire to try a boutique hotel for a trip to the Angkor temples, having stayed at the Raffles Royal Ankgor just a year ago. At a price comparable to the Raffles, I was sorely disappointed. None of the poolside rooms has twin beds (I was traveling with my 21 year old son) and the "garden" rooms--a small two story block reminiscent of a Howard Johnsons, are poorly situated. I was not advised of this despite having alerted the hotel to my travel companion. Yes the rooms are sleek but provide petty annoyances: no hooks or towel racks in the bathroom, a bar of soap that disintegrates the first time you use it, and no spares provided, a "TV" consisting of a computer screen with very bad reception and frequent power failures. The breakfast, a stingy continental breakfast where you have to ask to get a top-up on your coffee, compares poorly with the lovely breakfast buffets at other South East Asian hotels. The kitchen had no capacity to provide a packed breakfast (just two croissants in a box) for early morning forays to the temples. Pool is pretty but chaise longues don't move and strangely there are no tables beside them. Pool waiter didn't understand English. Front desk directed us to a restaurant which purportedly had a traditional Cambodian dance performance but on arrival, we found that it never has one on that particular evening. And so on. On the plus side, I had a very nice massage. I have worked and traveled in remote parts of developing countries, so have no problem with absence of amenities, but at $140 a night, one can do much better (loved the Raffles!).

    Tranquil Oasis for the Senses

    from

    Without a doubt, the FCC Angkor leads the pack in providing a chic, cool place to escape from the sweltering heat of the day in Siem Reap and a very convenient location to explore the Old Market and Pub Street. We were initially booked for a stay at the Shinta Mani but transferred to FCC after just one night at the Shinta Mani after we fell in love with the ultra-chic facilities and the rooms at FCC. At US$90 a night (excl taxes during off peak season), we found the experience extremely difficult to beat. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Siem Reap.

    Really recommend this place!

    from

    This is a new design hotel, reminiscent of Metropolitan hotel style. Each room is named after an exotic fruit / herb and overlooks the gorgeous pool. Sleek minimalist furnishings, herbal toiletries, citrus scented candles in the bathroom, fresh orchids on your pillows at turndown, flat screen tv. Jurlique products in the spa.

    Great Boutique Hotel Experience

    from

    We stayed 4 nights at the 2-story 31-room FCC Angkor in April 2005. For US$120 per night, we received breakfast (consisting of pastries, yoghurt, mixed fruit, juice and coffee/tea) every morning. Hotel even picked us up at Siem Reap airport. Room is spacious and very modern. Warm scented lemon grass aromatic oil and fresh lotus flowers in our room were a nice touch. We have the pool right outside our room. Every room has large sitting cushions outside and hotel will even supply you with mosquito-repellent incense while you are soaking in the sounds of Asia right outside your room at night. The night was literally filled with the haunting sound of cicada insects nesting on surrounding trees. You can hear the sound of nearby cockerels crowing in the morning...truly Asia! The FCC Angkor will rent you a car & driver from US$15 per day (depending on activities) and $25 for an English speaking tour guide + tips. All temples are about 1/2 hour away. We paid US$40 pp for a 3-day temple pass. Great location. Good restaurant. Everything in US$. Very convenient. People are simple and hospitable. They only charge US$5 for car back to airport. Experience in this boutique hotel unlike those you will find in regular hotels. Highly recommended.

    Had a great time at the FCC

    from

    I have just returned from a stay in Cambodia and loved this botique hotel very trendy with it's day spa and black tiled lap pool it also has a great A/C system sadly lacking in most hotels in Asia, close to town and very well priced, the only problem I had was in paying the bill with my American express card so if you stay there you can only use Visa.

    Great Value for Money

    from

    FCC Angkor opened their hotel section just a few months ago. At US$97 a night including breakfast, it's great value for money. Its location is superb. Despite the cab driver's 20km/h speed, it took us 15 minutes to get to the hotel from the airport (US$5).

    Designer minimalism heaven

    from

    We recently spent 9 nights at the FCC. It has only been open for about 6 months, and has some more settling in to do. However, the low level contemporary design is a triumph. Our Pool View room meant that we were about 5 steps away from the black tiled wet edge pool, and closer to the sun lounges. Each room has a kind of verandah with a series of large padded upholstered 'stools' which make a kind of day bed. With the addition of a fan, this is a perfect place to read a book, or indeed work on your laptop using their wireless internet as I needed to do for work a few times. Being a small hotel, you get to know the staff, and have at least a nodding aquaintance with some of the guests, which makes for a much more personal experience than in the larger hotels. Staff are all smiles, and ever willing to meet our requests. They were not always as pre-emptive in their service as at other design hotels - but this will come I am sure. The organisation of cars and drivers and tour guides for Angkor Wat was faultless. We spent a session in the Visara Spa, and had one of the best facials I have had in a long time. The Bar is a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The menu is good - but needs a little more work, as does presentation, and the general service and atmosphere. For a holiday which consisted of touring the temples and laying by the pool, interspersed with a little work - I could not recommend the FCC highly enough.
