Me and my son just returned from a 4 day trip to Siem Reap. We spent two nights at the FCC Angkor. We looked at the hotel website, and were impressed by the pictures of the hotel. When we arrived, we were given one of the rooms, "Jack fruit", on the ground floor. It faces a courtyard with rooms on all sides. The room is an interconnecting room, and so the noise from the adjacent room comes through very clearly. We booked a "Grand Circuit package" that, according to the website, includes airport transfer and a one day tour of all the temples. But when we wanted to do the tour, the hotel front desk told us that we had to buy two passes, and that without those passes, the tuk tuk was not even allowed to take us inside the temple areas. That means that the "tour" is not really a tour, and not even a transfer. We found this a misrepresentation to say the least. When we were finally taken out in the hotel tuk tuk, the driver kept discouraging us to go to visit some of the temples that were further away, when they were not, for example, Ta Som was only about 40 minutes by tuk tuk but he made it seemed like impossibly far.The rest of the stay was ok, we did like the pool and the staff near the pool, and the room cleaning staff are great in keeping the rooms cleaned. We enjoyed the rest of the stay until we had to be transferred back to the airport when we were told by the driver upon arriving at the airport we had to pay for the "free transfer". Lucikly the driver had a handphone so I could talked to the hotel explaining to her that a transfer was included in the rate and that I was not paying. She finally agreed. I tipped the driver anyway.
