Blue Lime
Ranked #24 of 276 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The Blue Lime hotel is conveniently located right in the center of Phnom Penh, 5 minutes walk only from the Royal Palace and the National Museum.
The room was spacious and very nicely decorated, very cozy, as well as the bathroom.
It has a gorgeous swimming pool, which is really useful to cool off after wandering around the city.
The breakfast was excellent, with a great range of options to choose and the staff was helpful and kind.
The only thing is that there's no elevator and this may be a problem for some type of travelers, although it was not for us.
Everything was so perfect, I would definetely stay again at the Blue Lime.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have their own swimming pool

It was a relief to arrive at the hotel. It is in an unexpected location halfway down an alley. When the tuk tuk driver pulled up we thought he had made a mistake...but when we entered the hotel gates it was like entering an oasis. Lovely welcoming staff with good English who took the time to ask what we needed to know etc. The large pool and surrounds were just lovely. If you can afford the extra bit of cash book one of the rooms with a private pool...lovely! The breakfast was the best we had on the trip. Simple elegant and fresh.

Room Tip: The rooms with the private pools are wonderful but any of the rooms are good value

This hotel is located down a side alley that felt a little dodgy. The hotel had a great pool & we were delighted when we discovered our room had its own private pool. A pleasant surprise we weren't expecting.

What a great place! After entering in the beautiful lobby, you are welcomed with a passionfruit juice (delicious). The staff was very friendly and helped with the bags going to the room. My room was very spacious and clean. Looking out on poolarea. I had a small private terras from where I could go into the bathroom. The bathroom had a large shower and all amenities.
I loved staying at the Blue Lime. Very convenient location, friendly people and good food. Nice pool! I would definitely go back!

I stayed at the Blue Lime in November with three friends. Apart from a small problem of ants because we were on the ground floor but it was dealt with immediatly by the staff we loved iit. So when I travelled back to Cambodia in July I chose it again. Central, decent rooms and bathrooma lovely swimming pool and a super breakfast by the swimming pool that will take you through to supper. It is in a tiny alleyway right behind the National Museum and a ten minute walk to the Royal Palace and five minutes from the river side. The staff are wonderful, well trained helpful and friendly. If you arrive before your check-in time or leave after check-out you can use the pool and attached bathroom with showering. Really handy. Outside there are always two or three trusted tuk-tuk drivers but always discuss the price before getting in. I have already reccomended it to friends and will go back again next time I'm in PP. The monsterous hotel being building right next to it only makes it feel more home like.

Room Tip: I have stayed in three different rooms and the best was n. 3 on the first floor, small, beautifully...

From walking in you feel welcomed and relaxed here, entering the lobby to be greeted with a passionfruit juice and cool towel. The staff were friendly and courteous and the rooms spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was good and the poolside area fantastic to relax in. I enjoyed it so much I stayed there twice during my Cambodian trip.

It felt like the right balance of comfort and relaxation.

This place is beautiful.
It's located down a little gang/alleyway behind the Royal Palace and it's barely signposted. It's so hard to find.
Walk in through the very unassuming front door and BINGO you've been transported into luxury.
A fantastic room, a superb pool and fabulous pool area. Service was top notch.
This place is a lovely oasis hiding amongst a really messed up city.
