“Got nice upgrade ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013 via mobile

I was first time in Doha, so hotel was recommended by my business partner.

Hotel is situated away from the centre and away from some nice restaurants. I did a short walk around, but there is really nothing to see or do there.

Hotel is combination of real hotel and living quarter. Stuff was friendly and helpfull.

I have booked nonsmoking executive room but as they did not have it upon my arrival I got upgraded to nice and spacious suite with big bathroom, relatively small but nicely furbished bad room and big living room.

So stay there was OK and there is planty of space if you need to work or have meetings in a hotel.

I was a bit disappointed with food offer. Asian restaurant seemed nice but they didn't have selection. There are a lot of dishes on the menu, but lack quite few of them in reality. They need to improve that.

It was good hotel but service level on the food side needs to improve as also breakfast is somehow below the standard for this kind of hotels.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Recently stayed here on a short business trip to Doha. Rooms are getting a bot tired but size is quiet good. Cafe in foyer area and International Cafe are quiet good and reasonably priced but if your a non smoker make sure you get into the non smoking area for the foyer cafe as there seemed to be a lot of chain smokers. Door staff are helpful, unless you want a taxi then they direct you t the main road to hail one.

Management need to address personal hygiene of room staff as I went into room just after it had been cleaned by house keeping to be meet by the strong smell of BO. On leaving I passed the housekeeping staff member and confirmed that this was an issue.

Overall not bad and there is a shop in the basement level, as well as a snooker hall, gym, beauty spa and another cafe in the courtyard near the main entrance.

I stayed at this place for almost 10 days. Rooms are very comfortable and very spacious. Service is good however, I was not very impressed with the food. Everything in Qatar is imported so is non-veg and it's very different from what is available in India. Nevertheless hope you enjoy your stay there.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

I stayed here for 1 week and found the hotel to be very comfortable. The rooms are large and clean and you can get a quiet nights sleep. The food in the ground floor restaurants is OK, I have had better, similarly the breakfast is also standard stuff but with lots of west and east style foods on offer.

The waiting staff are proficient and friendly however the reception staff are not always customer focused. I was told that I would be able to get a shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel at 19:30 but when I went to the hotel kiosk at the airport at 19:20 it was closed and despite calling the number given there was no answer. I then took it upon myself to go to the shuttle bus parking zone but there was no hotel bus present. At 19:30 I went back to the hotel kiosk after eventually calling the hotel representative. I asked about the bus to be told that it left early, this is despite the hotel having my arrival details on his job sheet. When asked when I would get a shuttle bus the hotel representative told me it would be at least 30 minutes so I should "go into the terminal and have a coffee"; as a busy business traveller I can't afford to waste time sitting in an airport coffee shop. At my own expense I took a taxi instead which saved me a lot of time and wasn't so expensive. The issue here, however, isn't the lack of shuttle bus. When I told the reception staff of my situation they were dismissive and weren't really paying attention to my complaint. They were focused on getting me checked in only, i.e. doing the job by the numbers and not actually serving the client. They also lied to me saying I was expected at 17:00, I was never expected at this time and I showed the staff my booking with a 19:00 arrival, the same time on the job sheet at the airport kiosk. OK, make an excuse but don't make feeble lies to cover the hotel's shortcomings.

Would I stay here again? Probably, but it wouldn't be my first, or even second, choice in Doha.

A very good hotel well suited for big groups.
1 of the top breakfasts I've ever had was in this hotel.
rooms are well organized/very clean/comfortable.
Hotel gym is too small/not adequate for full training.
Pool and lobby are not large as well.

Holiday Villa Hotel & Residence is situated near Doha International Airport (Probably by far the worst Airport, I ever landed in).

This property is close to Grand Hamad Stadium, Doha Fort, Souq Waqif, Aspire Zone, Education City, Al-Waab Cityand a local Cinema.

Hotel's nice clean tall building live up to my expectations. High speed Free WI-FI, supportive staff, outdoor pool, business center, currency exchange, fitness centre and a nice coffee shop in the lobby makes your stay even better. Food quality was just above average and I.T. Department says a quick "YES" to clients queries (May be i am hinting at a Bangalore based I.T. guy in hotel's I.T. Department). Rooms are spacious, wide and comfortable.

This property is 11 stories tall with more than 750 rooms, yet its quite cool and calm. No rush, No queue's makes your check in/out as fast as you like.

My overall 3 nights stay was awesome, yet i din't find anything in the name of entertainment and there is no tourist help desk in the hotel.

Suitable for all type of visitors. Hotel should be given a chance to serve you, if you are in doha or plane to be........................................ but Doha Airport.....Oh !!! how can i avoid it in my next trip? any advise?

Holiday Villa is a very comfortable hotel in Doha, Qatar. They keep thinking of the guests' welfare all the time. For the first time, I stayed in a hotel where they offer water, coffee, tea or milk for free and where there are a table ironing, iron, and also the hair drier. The shower is perfect, and the toilet products are great.
The restaurant works 24/7, and they serve Malai food besides Arabic, and international food. There is an extremely wide range of options for food.
One thing that was remarkable was the welcome message to me (with my name) when I first turn the TV on.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors are more silent.
