Cyclo tour

A travel blog entry by lindaormesher

The cyclo tour was amazing! I had the slowest one and was constantly at the back of the group but we were there to enjoy the ride and views and I made sure I did. Sam loved it, his cyclo was brilliant he bounced him the whole way round and kept swerving him from side to side. He was in a competition to get to each destination first each time and …

After settling in we caught up with the Carr's & Shaw's then had lunch at Friends Creative Tapas training restaurant. Visited the Russian Markets where we had wait for the Carr's. Off to the …

Entering the Kingdom

Small airports are nice! We were the only flight at the time, so there was no lineup at the "Visa on Arrival" counter and no lineup at customs. There was no need to pre-order my visa online after all.

Once I got out of the airport, I immediately realised South East Asia is every bit as hot and sticky as advertised, even in winter! I am in …

    Historical Traveler Reviews FCC Phnom Penh

    Great Location Overlooking The River

    from

    We really enjoyed our stay at the FCC. The central location is excellent, right in the heart of all the activity and the view out over the Tonle Sap River and The Mekong while sipping a cocktail on our balcony was just amazing and a great memory. Our room was spacious enough and comfortable but the noise was a bit of a problem especially early in the morning.

    Atmospheric but has its faults

    from

    Spent 3 nights here having transferred from the FCC sister hotel in Siem Reap.

    Good location but very noisy

    from

    I stayed att the FCC in Phnom Penh on twop occasions two nights et the end of November and the five nighst in early December 2006. THe first stay was in room Bantey Sreay and it is towards the back with no balcony and directly under the staircase leading the restaurant and bar thus very noisy up to about 12.30 at night and from the early morning when staff arrive to prepare breakfast. The room was nice but not in the price range of the 50 USD + VAT 10%.

    Fine overnight stay...stay longer if you like being below a bar

    from

    A fine place to sleep for 1 night for us but after a while the constant moving of chairs from the upstairs bar/restaurant and peoples shoes climbing the staircase right outside of the rooms begin to grate. Clean, pleasant furnishings but didn't feel private at all.

    Fantastic!

    from

    FCC is fantastic. The location is perfect and the hotel is a must visit for any travellor to Phnom Penh.

    Great location and fantastic ex-pat buzz

    from

    We spent 3 nights here as part of our 5 week honeymoon and really couldnt fault it. The room that we were in had its own entrance which made it feel like your own home - we liked this but noticed some former guests had questioned its security.... I can't see this as a problem.

    Happy hour drinks in the bar overlooking the Tonle Sap River are a must and you can see the local elephant walking home from his day at work!!

    Breakfast is fantastic - I would highly recommend the Asian style porridge with chicken and I know my husband thought the cooked brekkie was great too!

    Would highly recommend this hotel to others

    Neat hotel

    from

    Foreign Correspondents Club Phnom Penh: Recommended to us by some friends, the FCC was a treat. While not necessarily a great value ($55/night in Cambodia), it was neat to stay at a place with only 6 rooms - you feel like you're part of a small club. The room was elegant; dark wood wardrobes and desk, and a nice king size platform bed with Cambodian silk pillows. The mini bar isn't so mini with full size bottles of alcohol. The spacious bathroom was a real treat with a rain shower and nice sized bathtub. The soaps and shampoos are also provided in reusable containers. Everything was very elegantly decorated. There is an in-room safe, and the a/c worked well. The only complaint is that there could have been more lighting, as the dark wood of the floor and furniture made the room a little darker than I would have liked. Our breakfast (included in the rate) in the upstairs restaurant was delicious (although we never received pastries with it). It is also in a good location - close to restaurants, bars, internet cafes, and the palace/museum. We would stay here again.

    Contemporary Colonialism & The Hectic Riverfront - Thumbs Up.

    from

    We really enjoyed our stay at the FCC - so nice to be in an individually styled place that is right in the centre of things on the riverfront.

    Highly recommended, especially over a chain hotel

    from

    The rooms here are genuinely individual and styled in an interesting way. The FCC PP restaurant is available to anyone to walk into, but it makes it whole lot more convenient where you're living next to it, and we loved to be able to sit there in the evenings looking out over the Mekong. If anything it becomes too near, and you can find yourself not wanting to eat anywhere else. Despite notes in the guide book about pushy people hanging around the GCC trying to take you on motots we didn't get bothered at all (and when we did simply saying no thank you seemed enough), and the FCC sorted us our with a trusted driver to take us around for what we'd call a reasonable price. The nice thing about staying here is that you feel like you open your window and you're right in the middle of PP rather than being on the 14th floor of a fortress. All this and it's good value for money. Word of advice: only six rooms, so get in their early with your booking.

    Centrally located 3 star hotel

    from

    PROS: Great location on the waterfront, popular cafe/bar with great views of the Mekong, decent rooms.
