Reviewed 27 November 2013

Stayed two nights at Blue Lime. Like a little oasis in the middle of the city welcomed with a refreshing drink of freshly squeezed passionfruit nice after a 7 hour bus trip from Siem Reap. There was construction next door, but this was managed well and there was no construction noise outside of the hours stipulated 8am - 6pm. Close to all the attractions. Staff very helpful and friendly, I had some problems with the security box. I phoned reception who gave me instructions to fix it which did not work - however a staff member turned up in person 10 minutes later to check the problem had been resolved.

blue lime is a great hotel, the price is maybe a bit it high for what you get, and the skyscraper next door, wich is under construction is not a big plus. but the staff was very friendly, the rooms clean and the pool is very nice on a hot day.

In Phnom Penh, We spent a lot of time at Blue Lime. We absolutely loved the breakfast, and the hotel is in a very central part of the city close to the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, and Museum. There were also lots of restaurants around. The hotel had excellent customer service.

There is construction next door, and our room was right next to it, but it never bothered us. We also took several naps in the middle of the day.

We never used the pool, but it was beautiful.

Excellent service and facilities. Blue Lime was our spoil after some trekking and homestay, and boy oh boy we were nicely rewarded. A welcome like no other, the passionfruit juice was a lush tropical treat. The hotel is really close to the Museum and Palace. Also half way between Friends and Romdeng Resturants! Staff were really friendly and the construction next door was well compensated for by complimentary passes into a local sister hotels pool area. The only down fall, which is not reflective of the Blue Lime at all, was having to stomach the the loud and public flirt fest around the pool between an old wrinkly western man (yes he was Australian) and I very young nubile local Cambodian woman.

Room Tip: some rooms have gorgeous private gardens and the more expensive have there own private plunge pool.

The rooms are very small and not well maintained. The pool area is dark and right next to it a huge building under construction. The staff was friendly but not very attentive. The sister or hotels are much better.

Dear Guest, Indeed we have quite a few hotels in Phnom Penh and they are quite different. Nevertheless, I have a special feeling for the Blue Lime as it is quite different from all the others. I guess it is a question of taste.... Cheers, Alexis

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Blue Lime Hotel in Phnom Penh recently. The experience was rather disappointing unfortunately. The description given of the Hotel on Agoda was rather misleading. The hotel is attractively decorated that is true and the fact that it is down an alleyway was not too much of an issue for us. However the room was not at all of the standard expected.

It was very dark as two of the windows opened up onto brick walls. The room was very stuffy as well especially at night time when the canopy over the bed stopped the air con from reaching us. Even worse was the fact that the air con was making a rattling noise which increased during the night meaning that we had to turn it off. We then noticed that it was dripping a lot of water and of concern as there were electrics nearby

Having a shower was difficult as there was not any hot water and even if we are in Cambodia it is cold in the mornings

Breakfast was very disorganised. For example having ordered scrambled eggs and bacon only the eggs arrived. Ŵe had to wait about 7-8 mins before we got the bacon. I had to go and get milk to go with our coffee as the waitress forgot. The staff were very nice but just really disorganised. We were also unable to enjoy our breakfast one day as we were invaded by monkeys and the waiting staff didn't know how to deal with them forcing some guests to abandon their breakfasts

The experience with the reception staff was rather mixed. While some of the receptionists were very nice one man in particular was really not helpful.

Finally there was major reconstruction going on in the building next door which was right next to the pool making it not at all a relaxing experience

Waow! Not sure what to answer. I guess the owner is supposed to be smart and come-up with a good excuse, an apology or at least some kind of explanation... Any one out there with a suggestion? HELP! I guess I could not be a writer, feed people with my own views. Do they care? Do you care? Obviously if you are reading this, you do care. Well, my job is not to write about my views but to make your stay in our city the best possible. So I will drop this and go back to the management of our little business and try to make it the way you expect it to be. Cheers, Alexis
