I really wanted to like the Limes. I had been referred to the hotel by friends and, after a few recent disappointing stays at Emporium, decided to give it a go. Externally the hotel looks funky, the glow of the rooftop bar is alluring and the unique facade is quite cool. The young girl on reception was exceptionally welcoming and provided an excellent first impression. Then I got to my room... Located at the rear of the building it was definitely not what I'd consider boutique five star. The room itself was long and thin and the furnishings somewhat dated. There ws a certain smell in the room, stale/slight damp, that whilst bearable was not pleasant. The bathroom and its products, 'Appells', were fairly standard hotel issue. The bed was fine although the pillows were, for me, almost unbearably firm. A nice surprise was a Nespresso machine and a selection of capsules. Overall the Limes is okay, but I'm not convinced it's worthy of the price it asks. For a few more dollars I believe you can find a better boutique accommodation experience in Brisbane.
