We had a great visit at La Java Bleue. This is a perfect place to sit on the terrace, sip some wine (or a martini), and watch Kampot go merrily by. Jean-Claude, one of the managers, was a total character, sharing drinks and stories with us as he helped us arrange a variety of adventures and basic transportation. He's also... More

A very very nice little hotel. We got the chinese room - funny and beautiful at the same time. Dolly and Jean Claude are a great team!!!!! If I come back to this lovely city again, I"ll book a room to be sure I can stay at La Java Blueue, because there is only 3 rooms.

We booked 2 nights at this. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. However the air conditioning unit was far too small and poorly positioned to adequately cool the room (previous reviews have also mentioned this). The room also had a upright fan which we had to use together with the air conditioning but it didn't really make a massive... More

Entirely my fault and the Australian lady at reception was very helpful and suggested an alternative guest house down the road which luckily had rooms .I stayed there for two nights and then transferred to the Java Blue.

Kampot has an edge of world type feel, hot, dusty, peppered with empty buildings and stray dogs - yet it's strangely seductive and compelling with new bars, cafes and restaurants popping up. It may be a classic 'visit now before Costa Coffee comes down' type place. Java Blue should be a gem but sadly the operation falls well short of... More

This choice was my 1st real mistake in selecting a place during my whole time in Cambodia. The price shouldn't be more than $35 for the location & lack of service. I don't think they have their wifi installed correctly so there was no internet or Facebook available for images. It was quite an inconvenience always going to a restaurant... More

Tasty western style a la carte breakfast with ample variety is included. The French manager/chef if very friendly, as are all the staff. Dinner is nothing short of fine dining, with good wine, local produce... More

Wow! Blown away by authentic hospitality! All round manager Donna is a serious gem. Her approach is very down to earth, yet authentically so professional to make you feel like her VIP guests. With Chef Claude in the restaurant, this hotel has a serious great wining and dining options as well. Just sit outside, relax and watch the locals go... More
