“Wonderful at a great price”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

This hotel in Doha was worth the 123.00 we payed. The staff was super friendly and it is walking distance to all sorts of fun locations. It is about a 10 min walk from the Golden Souk and is near local shops which are really fun.

I am happy to read your comments and thank you for your time.

Like you, our location is appreciated by most guests who like the proximity to the airport (4k.m) and the walking distance to Souq Waqif, Gold Souq, Museums and other historical and cultural attractions.

Our pricing is based on offering quality at a value and we focus on the essentials without being too elaborate.

Our team members are a very friendly and helpful lot and we are proud of them.

Looking forward to your stay with us in the future as well.

Sincerely.

Having lived in Doha for a few years i was unsure what to expect on my return. I have now stayed here a couple of times and always find friendly staff, decent sized rooms and a clean hotel throughout.
A special mention for the restaurant staff. i wont stay anywhere else when in Doha.

Stayed here from the 15th to the 20th December on business. I arrived late in the evening (about midnight) after a whole day of traveling and looking like a refugee. The staff were very welcoming and gave me my room key and suggested I leave everything to them. They sent a porter up with my luggage and passport after I had checked in and that set the tome for the week. Whenever I needed anything, be it food, cold drinks, directions on where to go etc they were always happy to assist with a smile, can't ask for more really.

The room was a good size with everything the traveler needs and the availability of 24hr room service (although not used by me) is certainly handy to have.

If I had one criticism of the hotel it is that the wi-fi can be rather flaky which made the nightly Skype calls home almost impossible (resulting in rather a hefty mobile phone bill when I got home). Having said that; the wi-fi is provided free of charge so it is not as if I had lost out that much.

The area around the hotel can seem a little bit down at heel but this is cancelled out by the proximity of the Souk Waqif which is a 10 minute walk away with a range of cafes and restaurants.

On the occasions that I did eat in the hotel I found the food to be plentiful, good quality and served with a smile even when I turned up at the restaurant 20 minutes before closing nothing was too much trouble. I also found the food here very good value for money although that is true of everywhere I went in Doha.

In all, a nice place, decent standard of accommodation, good food and great staff. I look forward to staying there again next time I am in Doha.

Everything you need at a hotel - spacious rooms - friendly staff especially Mona at the Restaurant - amazing and smiley welcome at Reception. The hotel is in close proximity to everything you may need. It is also obvious that it is very well and professionally run from its Manager, (a comment from a hotel manager for years). Great Stay - would definitely recommend.

Thank you for your recommendation and we are glad to have been of service.

Friendly and helpful team members are our biggest asset and we are proud of them. Our location at 4k.m to the airport and walking distance to the souqs, heritage areas and the museums is appreciated by most guests while the short ride to business and commercial venues is also an advantage.

I am happy to know that you appreciated the value offered by our practically designed bedrooms that offer an area of 22sq.m.

Thank you once again and hope to be your choice in the future as well.

Sincerely.

Very very clean simple hotel. Breakfast is pretty good, and staff incredibly helpful and nice. Problems with the internet were pretty annoying. Not great location, nothing very close by but the gas station store, but you can walk to the market (Souf) pretty easy. Good value for money. Its pretty quiet too.

The interior of the Ramada Encore thankfully did not reflect the surrounding area. Yes, it is very close to the Souq Waqif, which was very convenient but the hotel is surrounded by construction and dirt. It is about 15-20 minutes away from City Center. Also, some taxi drivers weren't very sure of the location of the hotel. The wifi is free but difficult to access consistently. The signal continued to fade in and out.If I visited Qatar again, I would prefer to stay closer to City Center. Oh, also bring your own wash cloths/small face towels because the hotel does not provide any.

Room Tip: lower floor units have stronger wifi signal

Thank you for your comments and we are happy to note that you appreciated the clean interiors of the hotel and proximity to Souq Waqif and other attractions.

I regret that you did not like the surroundings of the hotel although our location is much appreciated by most of our guests.

As a mid scale full service hotel, we do not offer some of the amenities that deluxe hotels do in their bathrooms. This is reflected in the affordable pricing of our product in comparison to other branded hotels of the same category.

We thank you once again for your comments and will also be checking on the wi-fi signal.

Sincerely.
