We stayed at the Blue Lime for 3 nights when we arrived in Phnom Penh and stayed there again at the end of our 3 week trip for 2 nights.
We had notified them in advance that we would be arriving late at night so they had someone staying up in reception to welcome us which was a relief.
The location is just right as it is easy walking distance to all the sights and eating places.
We walked everywhere but if you needed a tuk tuk to take you home the hotel had written directions in Khmer to make sure you didn't get lost.
We had no problems with noise or loud music. The construction noise from next door was minimal.
The breakfast was delicious and plentiful (bread, fruit, coffee/tea, fruit juice, eggs). We didn't really need lunch.
We used the pool a lot and liked the ambience of the place. The free wifi was a bonus as it allowed us to organise the rest of our trip.
Our room and double bed were clean and comfortable. The concrete furniture did keep the room very cool so we ended up using the blankets!
All recommendations about airport transfers were spot on (Bons Voyages). They arranged bus tickets to Siem Reap without any trouble at all. The bus company they use are Sokha Komar Tep Express ($10 one way) and they were very good. We accidentally forgot to hand in the hotel room keys but the Blue Lime notified the bus driver who took the keys from us and returned it to the Blue Lime for us.
There was a body guard (and friendly tuk tuk drivers) outside the premises at all times so we felt safe within the hotel grounds. Our flight back to the UK was late at night so after checking out they looked after our luggage during the day and also let us use the hotel facilities.
All the staff were most respectful, kind and caring. The hotel staff were extremely helpful in all matters and we can't thank them enough for a wonderful stay. I can't think of a better place to stay in Phnom Penh.
