Stylish and blissfully quiet

Cool sophistication and a relatively quiet location are pretty much all you need to know about this gorgeous little hideaway, tucked down a narrow alley just off Street 19.
Hidden behind a large, wooden gate and plenty of greenery, Blue Lime offers a sense of seclusion which is amplified around the tree-lined infinity pool in the cool and shady garden. This is the kind of place that will be hard to force yourself to leave, especially after you’ve arranged yourself on the mattresses around the pool. On the weekends, you may find yourself crowded out by expats though. The rooms are minimal, but tasteful, with a neutral palette offset by carefully arranged blazes of colour. Four-poster beds add a romantic edge to the cool, contemporary vibe. The bathrooms are larger than average. The staff are extremely helpful, finding a way to politely and calmly show us around even when faced with competing pressures. Some rooms have a private garden or private pool, but the others, considering their location and style, offer especially good value for money.
