Phnom Penh, Cambodia
"From Kompong Chhnang we drove overland past rice fields, sugar palm and cashew plantations, to Phnom Penh, where we met Ant Alderson, the British co-owner of the FCC hotels in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
The FCC, formerly known as the Foreign Correspondents Club, enjoys a prime riverfront location with enviable views up and downstream. The elegant, pillared dining room, in cream and dark wood, cooled by ceiling fans, is straight out of Graham Greene or Somerset Maugham - both two former patrons."

“The bar and ambience in the evening was great with a stunning view of the river. Ta Som (our original room) was supposed to be Deluxe, but it was awful. The smell was over powering, it vibrated with the disco opposite and the shower flooded. We asked to be moved twice and were moved on the second day to Bayon for one night which was a proper Deluxe room which was lovely and then the Directors suite for 2 nights which again was disappointing. Service at breakfast was slow and not gracious. The lady manager did her best to help us but overall unless you are in the Bayon or equivalent it is disappointing.”

“This is wonderful place, my delux room was really big and you cannot beat the location. The only "but" is - it is quite noisy so if you are a light sleeper it might not work out for you - my room was one of the outside rooms and it was really noisy at night.”
