We stayed 4 nights at the Blue Lime, we had previously stayed at their sister hotel the Pavilion, so we had high expectations, we had read reviews about the construction next door, which is still in progress, there is a note in the room explaining that they have an agreement about the work hours. no work before 8am, well it seemed to start at 7am a little annoying but not really the Blue Limes fault, the hotel staff were excellent something that was also at the Pavilion, the food was ok but not really up to the standard I thought it should be, Pavilion could teach them a thing or to, but since there is a lot of choice in Phnom Penh I don't really think that would be a problem, the room was comfortable, we had the private garden room the garden is along the entrance to the room but does have a lockable gate to keep out others, the garden was well kept and was nice to see each morning, the one thing that may put people off this hotel is the entrance, it is up a short lane way, you will be dropped off at the end unless you arrive in a Tuk Tuk, it's a bit of a surprise when you first see it, but there always seems to be someone in the lane way and I never had a problem, finding a Tuk Tuk isn't a problem as there is always a gaggle of them out the front, just inside the gate is a rough price guide for trips, and ALWAYS negotiate a price BEFORE you travel as they will take advantage of unsuspecting travellers ( this is Cambodia wide not just here ) the only problem we had at the Blue Lime was our AirCon was on the fritz when we arrived, they fixed it quickly and with no fuss, overall I liked the Blue Lime, it's within walking distance to the river front, museum, Royal palace, and a short ride to the central market, and again the staff are wonderful .
