“Charming Oasis in the heart of Phnom Penh”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a beautiful pool/garden area that was a welcome respite to relax in. I stayed a week, but could have stayed a month!

On the plus side this hotel was in a brilliant location, walking distance to the Royal palace and the waterfront. The staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were clean and quite large. The only main disadvantage was that there is some building work going on next door so if you're looking to lie in, think again... work starts very early, however if you need to get up early to explore then great, you won't need any other alarm clock!

Overall this place is great value for money and comfortable for a short stay. Breakfast was 'ok' nothing amazing and if you love coffee you may be a bit disappointed.. it was a bit odd!? Nice basic swimming pool and pool beds if you're looking to relax after a busy day sightseeing.

Dear Guest, sorry there was noise during your stay. I guess it is the last weeks of construction... Thank God! Cheers, Alexis

We opted for a room with a private pool. The pool was clean and a nice luxury but didn't get much sun on it throughout the day which was a shame. The main pool was just as lovely and didn't seem to get too overcrowded through the day. The poolside cabanas are a nice touch and comfortable to relax in after a day of sight-seeing.

The room was beautifully furnished, large, clean, great shower. Staff were friendly. Location was convenient. I'd definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms with private pools are slightly overrated as the high rise building next door blocks the sun...

We found this through the Lonely Planet and loved it. We were welcomed with open arms and smiling faces. Rooms are beautifully done. Extremely comfortable settings and brilliantly located for food, the river, the museum and for just walking around interesting places. We stayed an extra day to PP just to be there and chill. I was sad to leave and would certainly go there again.

Spent five nights there, very pleasant stay. Room was basic, exactly what I was looking for. Had no issues with the construction next door , breakfast was quite good, and eating aside the pool was lovely. My room had a nice little balcony which was a great place to have the morning coffee( a plus was a hot water pot with coffee stuff in the room). Staff was very pleasant and responsive when needed. The only down side was that I had a 5th floor room..... But I ate so much while in Phnom Penh it was probably good for me to hike up the stairs.

Having stayed at the Kabiki and the Pavillion in the same group of hotels we decided to stopover in PP at the Blue Lime before our flight home. We were quite disappointed when we arrived, the hotel is situated down a side street and is now overshadowed by an enormous newly built hotel. check in was friendly and efficient and the welcome drink and confectionery very welcome after our bus journey from Kep. We had tried to book a superior room but there was no availability so we opted for the standard room. The room was very nice, a reasonable size with a functional shower room. it had however no outlook from the window and had been finished in concrete in various areas, shelves etc. It may be my personal preference but I never find that concrete can be finished to a satisfactory standard for internal decoration and can generally look quite scruffy.
The corridors of the hotel look tired and could do with freshen up with a coat of paint.
In all honesty I think that we were comparing the Lime with The Pavillion which is probably unfair as it is considerably cheaper than it's sister hotel.
I needed to use the pc in the foyer to check in and found the lighting to be so dim I had trouble seeing the letters on the keyboard, the staff however were more than helpful printing off my check in documents.
All in all the Blue Lime did leave me a little underwhelmed, maybe I would have had a different reaction if we had booked a more upmarket room.
The hotel was fine, it was clean, with friendly staff and a decent breakfast at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Try not to opt for the standard room I think that was my mistake.

We stayed at the Blue Lime for 3 nights in late December, and thought it was a great recommendation. We arrived from our flight pretty late at night, but it was no problem for them to check us in, and give us a warm towel and welcome drink.

We were slightly taken aback when we were shown to our room - because it was on the first floor right off the lobby. Not even down a hallway - we literally opened our room door out into the lobby. So we were afraid it was going to be a noisy and crazy stay. But surprisingly, we actually didn't hear a peep in our room from anything going on in the lobby, and we had a lovely view of the pool. The courtyard and pool make for a great little escape in a crazy city.

Room was clean and comfortable, there was a TV with a decent selection of cable channels, mini-bar, free wifi, and a nice bathroom. The only slight trouble we had was that the hot water was hard to come by a few times we went to take a shower.

Breakfast was good, and the location of the hotel is good for sightseeing, though it's down a little alley that is slightly hard to find when you're first getting acquainted. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
