Overview

FCC Angkor is an atmospheric boutique hotel in the centre of popular Siem Reap, northwest Cambodia. Built in the 1960s, the Foreign Correspondents Club or FCC was formerly the French Governor’s residence, and is ideally located for the renowned Angkor temple complex and the UNESCO world heritage site of Angkor Wat. This riverside hotel offers 31 contemporary rooms and suites, an elegant restaurant and bar, a relaxing spa and a swimming pool, all surrounded by pretty tropical gardens.

The hotel restaurant offers Cambodian and international cuisine, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meals can be enjoyed in the airy, colonial-style dining room, or alfresco on the terrace, which has views of the river and buzzing Siem Reap. The leafy gardens boast an inviting salt water swimming pool surrounded by loungers. The hotel bar is a popular spot for sundowners, whilst the onsite spa offers massages and beauty treatments, along with a sauna and Jacuzzi. With Siem Reap’s shops, bars, and popular old market area only a short walk away, the hotel's location is excellent.

Accommodation comprises 31 contemporary rooms and suites, each named after herbs and spices, such as lemongrass, ginger, and cardamom, and featuring a combination of neutral décor and colourful artwork. Rooms have floor to ceiling windows which lead out onto a private balcony or terrace, with pool or garden views. Each room has a king size or twin beds, and a spacious ensuite bathroom with bath and shower, basin, and WC. All units come with air conditioning, satellite TV, DVD player, minibar, and Wi-Fi. A number of larger suites are available with a relaxing lounge area, and extremely generous bathrooms with a separate bathtub and shower.

Families are welcome at FCC Angkor, and cots can be provided upon request. Note that the hotel is close to a busy road, and parents are reminded that children should be supervised at all times.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • Driver-guide: Very punctual, except for pick up for airport when he was delayed by >30 mins due to road closures. Vehicle very clean and well maintained- plenty of water and supplies of clothing for religious sites, tissues, postcards etc. Very good at understanding what level of conversation we wanted. Happy to stop for paracetamol, supermarket etc. Took us to signal box at railway since we were early (which was very interesting)

    The Walawwa: Lovely place to arrive at and get a bit of rest. Great pool, lovely rooms and food etc. Peaceful oasis so close to town.

    Wilpattu Camp: Wonderful food- really enjoyed trying lots of new things in excellent surroundings.Felt like the place had not been visited much recently (which I don’t think it had due to the terrorist attacks) so our safari guide had been brought up from another park and did not know the park too well- it worked out well though and we saw all the animals we hoped to see so no complaints on that front. We did feel that we should have been told about extra things we could have done- when we commented on the great food on final day we were told that they could have done a cookery demo for us, but it was too late at that point. It worked well for us but clients should probably know that they are likely to have multiple wildlife in their tents (eg frogs)- didn’t bother us at all, but others it might do. We were given a questionnaire to fill in at the end whilst all the staff were standing around, which wasn’t ideal as you felt a bit of pressure! Felt really well looked after here!

    Water Gardens Sigiriya: Beautiful suites with plunge pools- quiet and peaceful with lovely big swimming pool. Food good

    Jungle Beach: Beautiful location on beach. Rooms good. Food a bit limited I would have liked a bit more variety ideally.

    Camellia House: Lovely location- beautiful views. Food OK but service below average- our food orders were wrong a couple of times and even pre-ordered food was delayed. Tea factory tour was only an hour and that was the main reason to be here. It was interesting but quite brief seeing it was the main attraction according to our itinerary. Also, we were taken there in a minibus which didn’t have seatbelts on all seats and was quite smelly- not up to the standard of the usual transportation. Rooms were described as having panoramic views- one did have amazing views but the other one definitely didn’t.

    Galle Face: Lovely old hotel- but it did have some problems (leaking ceiling and ‘smuts’ coming out of air conditioning.) Weather very bad (spectacular storms). It was a shame the street food tour couldn’t take place but totally understandable given the weather, however we enjoyed our dinner here and free drinks/canopes!). Good choice at breakfast.
