Limes Hotel

Limes Hotel in Fortitude Valley, designed by Alexander Lotersztain, has
gained international attention for its design focussed accommodation
and is at the heart of the booming design district.

Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley is fast establishing itself as a design destination, with designers and design retailers setting up shop among the bars and cafés frequented at night.

Sprouting from the bustle of the Valley’s streets, the Limes Hotel becomes a haven for the design-inspired traveller. The striking amoeba-like façade of the building is echoed throughout the hotel, with the detail translating to everything from cupboard handles to Lime branded toiletries.

Limes also offers a unique open-air rooftop cinema and bar, where guests can enjoy a drink and a film under the Queensland night sky. During the day you can head out to see the best that Brisbane has to offer, before visiting the new designer bars popping up throughout the Valley, such as Cloudland, Laruche and the Lychee Lounge – to name a few. Alternatively, you can while away a few hours browsing the library of design books and magazines in the Limes Lobby, then head to the coffee shop or rooftop bar with friends.

Thanks to the touch of designer, Alexander Lotersztain, Limes is an intimate oasis of 21 contemporary guest rooms coupled with world-class hospitality – a tribute to owner/operator and Brisbane local Damian Griffiths. Lotersztain’s influence can be seen in everything from the furniture – by his design company, derlot – to the music and drinks lists, creating a unified aesthetic and personality throughout.

Limes Hotel is the only Australian hotel to make it into the prestigious Design Hotels publication and listings covering design-focussed hotels around the world.
