This was our first time in Doha; the reason we chose this hotel was based on info we gathered about onsite services and pool size.
We didn't like Doha, loads of construction works everywhere and not much to do/see.
We booked a Club King room located on the 5th floor with lounge access; this was perhaps the best of our holiday. Club king rooms are good in size and come with a terrace with a small table and two chairs. Bathroom is fantastic with bath and separate shower enclousure although in our opinion the bathroom door shouldn't be made in glass -if you get up in the middle of the night you will wake up your mate because of the light coming through.
Club lounge is great with a nice selection for breakfast open from 6 to 10am. Evening pre-meal services run from 6 to 8pm with alcohol, canapes and lovely food served. You can stay in the lounge after 8pm but food and alcolhol are taken away.
Non-paid wifi is extremelly slow; considering this is a 5 star hotel in the 21st century wifi should be free regardless the speed you have and you shouldn't have to pay an extra
Fitness center is fantastic, gym and sauna included.
Pool area is good, more parasols should be considered as you will have to share 1 parasol between 6 sunbeds; pools are non heated . Also to mention: the main pool attached to the hotel doesn't get any sun whatsoever from 3pm in Jan/Feb or March so you will have to use the other pool wich is located 7min walk from the hotel and right behind a noisy road.
We didn't use any of the restaurants within the Hotel so couldn't comment.
We would go back to this hotel however we wouldn't go back to Doha.
