Stayed here for two nights and wish we'd stayed longer. We had the room with the private plunge pool and was well worth the extra money. The staff were very friendly and organised everything we needed. Room was big, clean and bright, beds were a bit hard but that seems to be the norm in Asia. Breakfast was average, the bread was extremely sweet and the eggs weren't great. Would come back in a heart beat.

This was our second stay at the Blue Lime in 2 years. The main reasons we returned were the private pool room, the relaxed atmosphere, the warmth of the staff, the great location and the passionfruit juice. The room and pool were clean, good water pressure in the shower, nice firm mattress and good air conditioning. The breakfast is tasty and generous. We had one meal at the hotel, which was very nice and reasonably priced. The little bar does lovely fruit shakes.

Hotel staff are very helpful. They organised a taxi to drive us from Phnom Penh airport to Kep and also emailed us to let us know the price had increased slightly due to it being Chinese New Year. The taxi was waiting for us at the airport and we had a good trip to Kep.

We only stayed one night before heading to Siem Reap but everything at the blue lime was great. Excellent helpful staff, really nice room (I think they upgraded us for free) - we had a spacious room with four poster bed & balcony! Loved the complimentary fresh passion fruit juice!

We stayed two nights in February, the Blue Lime is a great little hotel close to the Royal Palace and the river. Great garden and pool for relaxing after a trip. Small bar that also serves an excellent breakfast and some good snacks for lunch. The staff were all very friendly and helpful in particular when we left a Kindle behind. They sent it to our next destination as soon as we contacted them and would not accept payment. Service above and beyond!

Room Tip: Probably better off with a Pool Room or Mini Garden Room.

Extremely helpful staff. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. They arranged driver and car for trip to Killing Fields and S-21. He could speak excellent English and it was very interesting to hear his views on what life is really like in Cambodia!! Fascinating but sobering day out ! Staff also arranged our onward bus journey to Siem Reap - jusy but don't believe their claims (or anyone else's for that matter) that it can be done in anything less than 5 hours !!

Room fantastic - as so many other reviewers have stated the private plunge pool (and it is VERY private!) is fabulous. As we had this we didn't use the main pool area although this was very attractive especially the beds arranged around it. Not particularly disturbed by nearby building work.

Breakfast was OK - usual arrangement of a cooked option with bread, pastries, etc.

Location good. Short walk to riverside where we tried out several of the bars (some great deals and locations for cocktails overlooking the river). There are always a couple of tuk tuk drivers waiting outside the hotel should you wish to go further afield but they don't hassle you if you don't want a ride. Did use one to and from Russian Market.

I stayed at Blue Lime and two of it's sister hotels. Blue Lime had the best pool area of the three. There were plenty of day beds and lounges . They are all pretty private. I stayed in the basic level room and it was at the front of the building, room 5. There was loud construction next door and street level noise but it died down into the night. However in the bathroom, the people in the next room could be heard. It sounded like there wasn't even a wall. The room was large as was the bed. I think the better value are the upper level room with the plunge pools. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Nice overall boutique hotel. Top tip: pay the extra for the nicer rooms. It's worth it.

Room Tip: back of the hotel is better.

We absolutely loved our stay at the blue lime! Everything was simply perfect. The decor was simple and beautiful and the staff very friendly. The plunge pool in our room was gorgeous. We really liked the fact that children aren't allowed in the hotel. The proximity to most sight seeing locales made it very convenient. A minor drawback was the lack of variety for breakfast. It was the same menu everyday. We'll definitely stay there again if we're in Phnom Penh!
