If you are looking for an affordable, yet relaxing getaway in Phnom Penh, then be sure to check out the Blue Lime Hotel. This little oasis of a hotel boasts 23 rooms, with up to date features and is located just walking distance from the famous National Museum and Royal Palace. One of the best parts of this hotel is the luxurious private pool, with secluded cabanas all around. We spent one afternoon just lounging and enjoying a small bite by the pool!
If you are lucky enough to book one of their private pool rooms do it! We were amazed by the beauty of the interior of the room, along with the privacy! Waking up to your own pool is something to die for. With a 1.3 m deep plunge pool right at your doorstep, you will find leaving the hotel at all will be a challenge!
The hotel offers visitors a peaceful escape, despite being located amidst the hustle of the historic district of Phnom Penh. The location is ideal because it is close to many of Cambodia’s most well known historic sights, but also found near a plethora of delicious local food stalls.
The Blue Lime hotel also features a bar and restaurant with around the clock services. Cooking up both traditional Cambodian dishes, along with some western classics. Included in your stay is also a complimentary breakfast. A choice of coffee, tea, juice, eggs, bacon and pancakes, you are sure to have a proper fill up before you begin your day!
In short, we recommend this hotel to travellers that may be more on a budget, whilst still looking for the amenities and treatment of a traditional hotel. Its quiet, secluded nature makes it the ultimate getaway in the middle of Phenom Penh. The staff and the experience was top notch and we will be sure to return the next time we are in Cambodia!
