What makes the Blue Lime so Darn Good? The Blue Lime is a quiet oasis right in the center of crazy Phnom Penh. Our amazing room was very clean with a funky, modern design and concrete furniture. The hotel has an awesome saltwater pool surrounded by a tropical garden, and decked out with cabanas, day-beds, and a small bar.
Vibe: The Blue Lime has a friendly vibe and a helpful staff.
Location: The hotel is at the end of a small, quiet alley within easy walking distance to the National Museum, Royal Palace, and Sisowath Quay, the city’s riverside promenade lined restaurants and cafés. In addition, tuk-tuks wait outside the hotel and are ready to whisk you away to anywhere you want to go in Phnom Penh.
Rooms: The Blue Lime’s twenty-three beautiful rooms are accented with bright colorful silks, and are furnished with beds, desks, shelving units, and wardrobes, all constructed with molded concrete. Rooms have air conditioners and fans, as well as en-suite bathrooms with solar heated water. The reception area has computers with internet access, and rooms have a DSL wire to connect to your laptop.
Food: A lovely breakfast is served out by the pool, and includes breads, eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit, and orange-passion fruit juice.
Keep in Mind: Book ahead since this hotel is a very popular place. The hotel refers families with children under sixteen to its sister property, the Kabiki.
