We stayed here after Permai Rainforest as had v early morning flight from Kuching. Clean room and comfy bed though walls were paper thin and glass not soundproof and hotel is located on corner of a main street. Hotel provided free picnic breakfast as we were too early for breakfast and organised airport transfer. Good location for China town and...

We stayed several nights at the LimeTree during our stay in Kuching. The staff are friendly and helpful and we actually extended a night because we were pleased with the hotel. The breakfast buffet is good and offers a wide selection. There is also a rooftop bar but the food is average and I would only recommend popping up for...

Was really impressed with the hotel as it was very affordable cheap. But everything was all good: Room - simple and clean Staff - super friendly! The front desk people were helpful, (the Manager, Serinah was lovely). Food at the hotel was just ok - but doesn't matter cause you would want to eat all the yummy food outside anyway....

This is a great little 3 star hotel in Kuching. Set on the outskirts of the main town, it's a 5 minute walk to the start of the waterfront promenade and a 10-15 minute walk to Merdeka Shopping mall. There's a basic supermarket about 2 minutes walk away for water and snacks and a huge supermarket in new Chinatown about...

Very warm and accommodating service provided by the staff. No fridge provided in the room, but mini cooler is available upon request. When our layer cakes wouldn't fit in the mini cooler, they were very helpful by assisting to keep it in their kitchen fridge until our check out date. Welcome drink is a lime soda at their rooftop bar,...

We stayed at the Lime Tree Hotel for a week in October and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It became a little home away from home which, when you're on extended travels like we are, is very welcome! It's definitely punching above its weight, providing you with all the mod cons in a very convenient, central location at a really...

A pleasant hotel, friendly, helpful staff. Room had everything you would need - tea and coffee making facilities, bottled water, TV, slippers. Our room on the 2nd floor overlooked the street, so there was some traffic noise - mainly underpowered motorcycles with what sounded like no silencers. Bar / restaurant on the top floor with view over the town. Breakfast...

Although it didn't feel like I was in Malaysia staying in the LimeTree Hotel, it is a very nice property. Very clean, kinda hip and a little bit quirky with all the references to limes. The rooftop bar is a nice place to lounge, although it doesn't have a view of anything particularly interesting. Staff was really friendly. It's just...
