Limes Hotel by in Alexander Lotersztain
Designed by award-winning designer, Alexander Lotersztain, the first Australian member of Design Hotels. The limes hotel located in Fortitude Valley, the hub of Brisbane’s nightlife, also known for its trendy cafes, shops, bars and restaurants, in keeping with this vibrant neighbourhood, Limes has been created to include a completely open air roof top bar and roof top cinema (in hibernation until Spring).
This cool limes hotel was opened June 27 in Brisbane. With only 21 rooms, the hotel is intimate and friendly, and features a rooftop bar and cinema. Drawing inspiration from a lifetime of international travel, with countless hours spent in aeroplanes and hotel rooms, Alexander concentrated his design focus on the 21 rooms to cater for the independent traveller, rejecting the 5-star norms and opting to focus on guests’ primary travel requirements through unique design solutions in styled lodgings.
“The Limes concept is an emphasis on the essentials to make a pleasing and at times novel experience, whether staying for a night, a drink, a movie or all of the above,” Alexander said.
“Attention to detail is reflected in my design choices, which are understated yet buzzing with the contemporary energy of Brisbane and the Valley surrounds,” Alexander said.
