We are overall very impressed, happy, and satisfied with this hotel. What we got here were worth every cent we've paid for (and maybe better than that!). We now understand why this hotel is rated highly by their customers. Eventhough our trip to the hotel started with a glitch when the hotel staff were sort of unaware/forgot about our airport transfer arrangement that we waited for more than an hour at the airport before calling up the hotel; but by then the pick-up quickly came within 20 minutes, and upon arrival at the hotel, we were greeted warmly by the staff at the door and the reception.
Our room was on the small side (deluxe type with window), but it was as described on the hotel website. It's very clean, comfortable, and efficient. Hair dryer, toiletries, water boiler and cups, flat TV, big big bed, hot-strong shower, all are there. The room is very pleasant. Our room overlooked a relatively big street, but we're happy to find out that we hardly heard any traffic sound in the evening/night, so we slept very soundly.
We were served hearty, delicious breakfast buffet every morning downstairs. We especially love the self-service, 'self-made' Sarawak laksa corner. It's fun, and it tasted nice as well! We're also entitled to a welcome drink at the hotel's rooftop lounge which opens 5pm-12am daily. We went for a drink during sunset; we felt very satisfied that we got to relax while looking at the beautiful city view and Sarawak river ahead. The hotel's signature lime drink (apparently this hotel, as its name suggested, is lime-themed; everything is related to lime ~room colors, utensils, lift smells, etc!) was great; we've never tasted such a lime taste with such a fresh tingling sensation.
The hotel's cafe kitchen staff is very friendly and didn't mind our request to fill up our water bottles for our day trip out of hotel.
The hotel is also very conveniently located within the city centre; a 5-minute walk from Kuching waterfront and all, as well as 5-minute walk from the public buses to various places inside and outside Kuching, e.g., Bako, Bau, etc.
Another perk of this hotel is the free Wifi and computer to use. While the free Wifi in the room was strangely weak and kept disconnected on me (for some unknown reason, I could never go online throughout all my attempts during our 2-night stay!), the computers at the lobby are very convenient and quick for our use.
All in all, we're very satisfied and happy with our hotel selection, and will strongly recommend this hotel to all Kuching travellers, be it solo, young/old couple, and family! :)
