We stayed at the Blue Lime for 2 nights in June and then, due to a flight cancellation and the fact we liked the hotel so much, we stayed there for another 2 nights after we had spent 3 days in Siam Reap.
We booked based on the TA reviews and we weren't disappointed at all. All four in our party agreed it was one of the coolest hotels we'd ever stayed in. It is located next to the Royal Palace (well, the back of it) and in an alley off a very hectic street, however, don't let this put you off. As soon as you turn down the alley the sounds fizzle away and you enter the Blue Lime which is extremely quiet and serene.
The reception is ultra modern and trendy all the rooms are very nice - all boasting concrete furniture. The staff very friendly and helpful and the pool is area is sublime. We found the breakfasts lovely - bread, fruit, fruit juice, tea and coffee and and omelette. The bar food was also very good and the bar prices reasonable. Free internet access was a nice perk, as was the free water each day in our rooms (which were also very nicely fitted out).
We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a trendy yet very serene hotel. There are a few noises from neighbouring properties, and the barking of dogs did become slightly irksome once or twice but this takes nothing away from the Blue Lime in our humble opinions.
