“A fine Kuching Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

We stayed four nights at The LimeTree hotel and were very satisfied with our stay. The hotel is very well located, within walking distance of many restaurants, sites and hawker centers. Our room was quite large and very clean, good AC and a refrigerator with four bottles of water restocked daily. A very abundant breakfast was included. There is a nice bar on the rooftop; visit it if you're in Kuching. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Some reviews said that the rooms were a bit small, ours was large. It seems that you should request...

The Lime Tree hotel is ideally placed. it is within walking distance of the city and river front, just around the corner from some great food courts and restaurants and has a fabulous roof top terrace to retire to and relax with a cool drink later in the evening. They also served food.
Having spent the last month travelling around Malaysia we decided that the staff in the Lime Tree hotel could teach some much bigger and 'grander' hotels the meaning of service. They were impeccable, always there to assist and nothing was too much trouble. The little breakfast room served a really good buffet breakfast spread and it was great to see the chef constantly out checking that there was sufficient of everything for the customers.
Our room which was called an executive deluxe was large, comfortable and the bathroom had a great shower . Lime is a theme which runs right through the hotel right down to the shampoo and shower gels. The hotel airport shuttle was inexpensive and really efficient. It was lovely to come into arrivals and find them waiting for us with a name card.
Any minus's - well, we would have liked to see the room safe bolted down and there was more road noise than we would have liked but the hotel is on a quite busy junction so unvoidable without better insulation. We would definately stay again and recommend to anyone visiting Kuching.

Room Tip: We were in room 108 which was nice and large with an enormous bed and a great shower. It was however...

We stayed for 4 nights and were very pleased - our room was small but clean and comfortable with thoughtful additions such as a universal plug socket. You have to swipe your room card to access your floor in the lift. There is free Wi-Fi too. There was a little traffic noise, due to the convenient location close to the old centre of the town.

Can't accuse them of not sticking to the theme - lime green decor, lime shower gel, fresh limes for sale, and complimentary lime juice drink on arrival!

Breakfast was a tasty and varied buffet, and the restaurant meals were nice. We went on the Bako tour booked through the hotel and were very pleased.

Above all, the staff were excellent - without exception they were always polite and eager to help.

The staff at the reception and in the restaurants was very nice. The room's furnishing wasn't the newest but it was nice and comfortable. Kettle was there, tea, instant coffee was refilled every day. The room was clean and the window was big which was very nice, especially since nobody could see through from the outside. The laundry service was not too cheap but quick and really good (they made every single piece - even boxershorts - into a small package).
Breakfast was very good with continental, british, asian/local - there was something for everybody.
We enjoyed a three-course dinner at the rooftop which was good. The table was decorated and the waiter was very nice.
The staff helped us book day trips and was always there to help.
Free computer/internet use in the lobby. The hotel is close to the centre.
We can definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there whenever we return to Kuching.

A pleasant place to stay for my quick over night stay in Kuching. Easy walk to the very pleasant waterfront and lots of Restaurants. They gave me 2 complimentary drink vouchers for their bar which closed at 10pm - I got there at 9.45pm and they were shutting, but they made me a couple of drinks which I took to my room.
Room was fine, clean and had all the basics plus a very cool international plug socket on the wall - what a good idea!
They do have the annoying practice of wanting to debit your credit card for 50MYR or having you pay them 50MYR cash as a sort of bond - even though the room was paid for, but they did refund it back in the morning with no worries. Normally a credit card number is sufficient and I have been ripped off elsewhere. But it was all ok here.

Room Tip: Got their shuttle to the Airport for 25MYR

Stayed 2 nights, rooms are small but very clean. It's recommended for budget's travellers.
It is also located in a good area, which can easily short walks to the restaurants to find food and city. Well done
