We chose this hotel based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. China town is nearby and local food choices is plentiful in the surrounding area, also you can get necessities like mineral water in the surrounding sundry shops especially for day outings to the parks. Plenty of cafes are opened in the evenings in the vicinity.

We stayed here for a couple of nights visiting Kuching and the surrounding area - great hotel to explore the city. The location is central, you'll reach the river promenade in 10 minutes. The area around the hotel is quite nice, authentic Malaysia, really feels more like a small town than the large city Kuching is. There are banks with ATMs in close vicinity, just ask the very helpful staff. Try the Hongkong Noodle House around the corner for a very good and yet cheap meal. The hotel offers la... Read more

We stayed there for our honeymoon in june 2015. It takes me one year to post my review. But I must say..despite the distance from riverfront one must stay for once in the Lime tree. The city view deluxe room was spacious. Bathroom was simple. Clean. The lime colour tone is soothing. A vast range on buffet breakfast offers you more than you want. All the item were fresh. Reception was too much helpful. I must must must recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed sitting on the 5th floor rooftop terrace which has a view of the river. Breakfast selection was very good and the staff friendly. My quibbles were the yellow stain on the bed sheet and the fire alarm which went off at 2 am.

I chose to stay here after reading great reviews on this hotel. Yes, the staff here are always smiling and friendly. But they may not have give good advice on the local attractions and the differences of the many shopping centres too. Their tour packages and transportation charge are even higher than all the major 5 stars hotel. We ended up going to Riverside Majestic or Suite Hotel to take local transport or shuttle bus which costs much less. Riverside Majestic Hotel also in a more central loca... Read more

I chose this hotel for my fiancée and I after reading the very positive reviews on Tripadvisor, however I have to say that I was slightly underwhelmed - mainly due to the rooms which were not cleaned properly and the fixtures and fittings which made everything look slightly dated. The main area of the hotel was nice, whilst the breakfast had a good enough selection. The location is also reasonable and serves as an ideal place to explore the city. The staff were also friendly, although the serv... Read more

After reading the amazing reviews here on TripAdvisor, I was tempted to book the hotel for my stay in Kuching. I was visiting Kuching for leisure and thought the good price, which included breakfast was a great deal. Upon arriving at the hotel, I was a bit disappointed because- 1. The room is extremely small. 2. The bathroom is tiny. 3. The noises from the road and corridor are so loud as if there was no barrier. I guess it's due to the thin glass, partitions, and door. 4. The bathroom is not... Read more

To begin with I think it is really important to remember this is a 3 star hotel and as such it is really good value for money but expectations must be realistic. Our executive room had a really large comfortable bed which could have the linen changed every day if you wished to. We were in room 308 which gave a view of the river and on the 5 July gave a great view of the fireworks erupting all over the city. We had a fridge, safe and plenty of hanging space in the wardrobe.

We opted for the airport transfer from the hotel which was very efficient and comfortable. The reception team allocated our room quickly. We were very impressed with the lime green and white color scheme which is perhaps the signature color scheme. Somehow the theme and the name blended perfectly. The hotel arranged our transportation for all our sightseeing tours. The hotel is located centrally about a 10 min walk from the Kuching Esplanade which offers lots of options for dining.

The good thing about The Lime Tree Hotel is basically its location. It's a walking distance to food outlets, mall and the waterfront. A complimentary buffet breakfast is also something to look forward. The hotel staff are nice and the Wifi is good. You will also get a view of the city from the rooftop restaurant, it's a great place to chill at night.

Great service by all friendly staff, especially the manager on duty. Was very helpful and accommodating. The location is also good as its nearby to all the major tourist attractions. Having the Lime fruit as the theme is a unique and very much welcomed idea. My mum really enjoyed using the refreshing Lime soap and she even purchased the fruits from the lobby. Rooms are sufficiently clean and well maintained. Will def stay here again if I'm in Kuching.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. The location was good, and the staff were mostly helpful. Unfortunately, the food in the restaurant was very hit ans miss. Some of it was lovely, but some was awful.

We spent 6 nights here. We could not fault this hotel. The room was well appointed and large with a decent view. The entire staff, from reception, waiters and drivers were very courteous and friendly. The breakfast is buffet style and excellent. The location is a pleasant 10 minute walk to the waterfront and convenient. July on the front desk helped us immensely with her ideas for what to do and consequently we were busy for 5 wonderful days here. Highly recoomended.

The limetree is a nice hotel with a pretty good location in Kuching city. The room has what it needs but not more. We had to rent a minicooler from the resepsjon and the don't have a safe in the room. They have a laundry service which is good but expensive. We were happy too se that they have a good breakfast and the rooftop lounge is very nice. Especially when they light the candles in the evening. The staff is helpful and friendly.

We had a hi-tea buffet at the Citrus 1 Function Room. I actually booked the function room and wanted to linked our event with the rooftop lounge. However, it was a misunderstanding discussion that I thought the hotel would block the rooftop for us as well (after I reached there, then only I am told so). The rooftop is open for the hotel guests but we can still linger around there during our event. Though it was a last minute booking and planning, the person-in-charge was so helpful. They quote...

They have tried to do something "quirky with the whole lime theme but, in my opinion, it doesn't come off. The staff were polite (just), my room was quite small and basic e.g. no mini fridge and the breakfast choices were limited. The location is an easy walk to the river front and the airport pick up was good but overall very average !

We have stayed at the LimeTree on a previous occasion. Great location, breakfast is plentiful with good choice of Western and Asian food. Staff are excellent, friendly and helpful.

Beds are comfortable. Hotel committed to environmental issues and waste.

This is a nice basic hotel, very clean and simple with mainly great staff (not too impressed by the slow rooftop bar service though, especially since the bar was pretty empty). However, we didn't sleep a wink the first night due to heavy traffic noise all night long outside our window. Managed to move to back of hotel for other nights which was better, but traffic noise still woke us up twice in the middle of the night. For that reason alone I wouldn't recommend as it spoiled our stay.

The hotel itself is great- it is clean, in a good location, friendly staff who helped us out for the tours we booked. Relaxing roof top bar and very good breakfast make this hotel a very good choice. The only disadvantage is that there can be extremely loud noise outside even though our room was not even located on the main road. Soundproofing is therefore an issue and we woke up in the middle of the night on 2 of 4 nights due to the noise, making it also difficult to fall asleep. Other than the... Read more
