Hotel is in the old part of Doha, rooms are reasonable but somewhat shabby. Wifi only in the reception although there is cable internet access in the room, for those that have Ultrabooks you will need a USB to Ethernet adaptor. Bandwidth of the internet is very poor when a lot of people are using it (12 hours to download a UK tv programme) there are no electrical sockets in the bathroom and only four in the room. The tie up with the Best Western to use their facilities no longer applies as I found out. If you are on an extended stay the food in the restaurant becomes very bland and boring although the staff (especially Min) are very helpful. If you want alcohol the easiest way is to go round the corner to the Gokulum park hotel. The area around the hotel is very noisy, chiefly due to the lazy bas****s pulling up outside the Al Zarka restaurant and honking their horns for the runner to serve them, this starts as early as 04.00 and sometimes goes on until 01.00. The same applies to the supermarket a little further along. If you have any distance to travel for business allow plenty of time because the traffic is murder, allow at least 20 minutes to get to the Salwa road. Rooms are also noisy, you can hear the people and the television in the adjacent room. The hotel has a laundry service which is reasonably quick.
