Great little touches. Biggest treasure it has is the wonderful Geraldine at reception. Its such a pleasure dealing with professionals who know there stuff and have great local knowledge of their city. Romms are reasonable well appointed with nice little touches such as fresh flowers each day. There is a little bit of construction next door but its is very unobtrusive. Exercise regime at Blue Lime is excellent, those stairs are a great aerobic workout a couple of times each day. Beware of the bloody agressive tuk tuk drivers every where you go. Tuk Tuks are the only downside of this wonderful city.

Downsides were that we requested a twin room but ended up with a double and the building site next door.
However, the good points far outweigh the bad.
The pool, the food, the service, the safety, the peacefulness, the friendliness of the other guests and the good vibes all made blue lime well worth a visit
Would definitely recommend

We really enjoyed our stays at the Blue lime. We started our trip with one night, July 25th, in Phnom Penh before leaving for Siem Reamp. We had a regular room with a balcony. That was perfect. We finished our trip to Cambodia with two nights, August 6-7, in a private pool room, and this is a little luxury that worth the price. Tuk tuks in front of the hotel are very friendly, we were friends with one guy named Johnny, but probably not his real name, but such a nice man. At the Blue lime, you are walking distance from central market and a few nice monuments to visit. We hardly recommand this hotel.

Sorry if any mispelled words in this review, we are french canadians and english is a second language.

We have stayed here on business three times! There are others in the same family, but they seem to book up quickly. Not that we are disappointed...this is an awesome place. We have stayed in the garden rooms, the single rooms, and the pool rooms. The private pool rooms are really posh and lovely. Perfect for couples or singles wanting some down time. The location is right behind the museum and close to Brown's Coffee - a must for any aid worker.

Room Tip: Unless you want a private pool, the garden rooms are just as big and ideally located.

The approach was a little worrying; thefirst alley was being dug up and the second led to a metal gate. Then we were past the gate into an oasis. A path by a greenery softened pool led to reception and immediately we were given cold towels and a glass of passionfruit juice. The room was big enough to make a 6ft wide bed seem modest, and the aircon was impressively powerful. breakfast choice was wide enough to please all four of us. However the lasting impression was made not by the above but by the consistently high level of friendly service offered by all the staff from night security boy to manager --just brilliant

Room Tip: Some have pool views, some provide street scene views take your pick

The Blue Lime is a beautiful Boutique Hotel virtually in the heart of Phnom Penh. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and clean, the (included) Breakfast delicious, and the pool just divine. Really enjoyed our stay here, would highly recommend it, and will definitely come back again when we are next in Cambodia. 10 out of 10!

Room Tip: We stayed firstly in a Garden Room, and at the end of our holiday in the main building on the 2nd Fl...

I spent one night at this gorgeous hotel, and my only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. On arrival at 8am, I was advised that the room was not yet ready (quite understandable, considering that check-in is around 2pm). Unexpectedly, I was offered breakfast - the dining area is next to the pool and the breakfast was delicious, especially the passionfruit juice. I was taken to my room about half an hour later - I had booked a garden room but, to my delight, found I had been upgraded to a pool room, which was gorgeous .... the plunge pool was large and was very welcome after a hot day sightseeing. The staff in all areas were super-friendly and efficient and the ambience overall was wonderful. The hotel is located down an alleyway, near to a very busy street but no street noise penetrated into the hotel area. The tuktuk drivers outside are all known to the reception staff, so little chance of getting ripped-off. Also, the place is very close to the Royal Palace and the National Museum (both well-worth visiting) and well within walking distance of the river. I can thoroughly recommend the Blue Lime to family and friends and I look forward to returning there on my next trip to Cambodia.

Room Tip: It is worth the extra for a garden room with a plunge pool
