I stayed at Blue Lime for 4 nights with a friend and had a fantastic stay. The location is great, very close (5 min walk, if that) to the Main Street by the water where there are heaps of places to eat. The room itself was great, the shower/bathroom were modern and very clean. The bed was a little hard for my liking but I was by no means uncomfortable in it. The DVD player was very useful! The food was standard, but the ice cream was delicious! It was great to lay by the pool in the bungalows and read my book. The pool was great too - a little cold at first but extremely refreshing given the heat! The reception staff were always helpful.
The only down fall was that reception quoted extremely high prices for taxis and tuk tuks. For example we asked how much a taxi was from Phnom Penh to siem reap and they quoted us $85USD, but we paid $65USD (and going by other reviews that was pricey - usually about $50-55 USD). We were also quoted huger prices for tuk tuks but ended up paying much less. Just be aware of this and make sure you do your research before you arrive.
All in all I would recommend this place to anyone going to Phnom Penh. It was a great location and such a great room and overall vibe.
