FCC Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, Cambodia


Rooms come in different styles with an overall emphasis on business travellers - this is, after all, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club. The larger Deluxe Rooms - with balconies - are furnished with warm reproduction teak furniture, while the smaller Standard Rooms plump for a clean business-hotel look with near-black varnish on the unadorned built-in wardrobe, and a spacious desk that wouldn’t be out of place in a Grand Hyatt. We'd definitely go for the former rooms if budget and availability allow.

Beds are large, low and comfortable with plenty of raw-silk cushions so you can lounge during the day. Above the bed, each room has a panorama picture of the Angkor Wat landmark that gives it its name.

Bathrooms are very well appointed, all in a clean 5-star chain style, with indirect fluorescent and halogen lighting, glass partitions and vast mirrors. Some have shower cubicles, others large bathtubs, in either case with a rain-shower head. The toilets, bless them, come with a water gun, and if that’s not enough there are also 2 rolls of toilet paper to unspool, simultaneously or alternately, up to you.

Save to favouritesPrintMailFCC Phnom PenhAh, the history! It was right here, under the great black ceiling fans, overlooking the lazy flow of the river, that the legends of the lawless UNCTAD days got distorted beyond recognition in the retelling - from sozzled foreign correspondentís mouth to stoned travellerís ear - until people really thought you could hire an AK-47 and tell a local child to run. The foreign correspondents have fallen (not to AK-47s but to the economies of the newspaper industry), and the travellers with their beards and beads have decamped, but the Foreign Correspondents' Club still thrives. Now, though, it is under corporate ownership and its logo is on T-shirts, bags and what-all else. Perhaps itís for the best. The location remains the very centre of Phnom Penhís tourist ghetto, a stoneís throw from the National Museum, a lazy stroll to the Royal Palace. And nowadays you can even get service in 8 well-appointed [r:CA009:rooms]. The terrace and rooftop still have the best views in town; throw open your window, lie on the bed and know youíre in the throbbing heart of a strange city - a great feeling.
