Reviewed 5 August 2014

Stayed one night prior to early morning departure. Convenient to new airport, good shuttle service around the clock. Checking out at 4 am was quick and efficient. Room service dinner was good. Room had a good iron for clothes, coffee machine, large bathroom.

Minor complaint is that my no-smoking room still had faint smoking odor, but not major problem.

The cellar bar at this hotel is a great place to hangout with excellent service and great bartenders and fine goods specially my mates dasha and coco!
The atmosphere is nice and friendly the service is exquisite,what's great about this place is the open kitchen where you get to see your favourite chef and bartenders prepare your favourite foods and drinks!

The Oryx Rotana is a great hotel in Doha, very close to the old airport, but still within a 20mn drive of the new one.

The rooms are quite large and comfortable. I was staying on a corporate rate, which included wi-fi and daily bottled water. Not sure if other rates include such amenities.

One of the weeks I was there I stayed in a premium room. Didn't notice any difference apart from toiletries in the bathroom. Unless you really want a top floor room, didn't seem to be worth it.

The best about the Rotana is the variety of services it provides, and all with very high quality: multiple restaurants, seating and working areas are available, live music, gym and swimming pool, among others. Makes long assignments in Doha much easier.

Now about the bad parts: firstly, food and drink are very expensive. 25+ riyal for an espresso, buffet nights start at 200 riyal without drinks, it's almost impossible to eat a dinner meal under 150 riyal. When staying long periods for work, this adds up quite considerably. Also, gym and pool are paid extra.

Despite this, the overall quality of the hotel makes it worth it, and if you are up to a short taxi ride you can visit one of the multiple restaurants in town for a nice dinner for a lower price (likely without alcohol though).

Now that I mention taxis, this is the biggest pain in Doha (not only the Rotana). It's virtually impossible to call a regular green taxi for a pick up; if you want to leave the hotel, you either have to wait until a taxi drops off another guest (which can take some time), or you get one of the hotel's private cars, which will cost you at least three times more than a taxi.

Overall, as i said, fantastic hotel, and if i have a suggestion is to make more favorable deals for long-stay guests for in-hotel services such as food, laundry, etc.

our company and Oryx Rotana have a corporate relationships and corporate rate, since we hold our meetings there across the year. I was planning to take my kids to Doha for exploration and I knew that although the hotel is a business hotel, it would have the potential to accommodate my family needs and offer us value and comfort. I have stayed in this hotel many times before for business, but I'm making this review for our family trip to give another prospective on families with young children (3, all are less than 7 years old). Through our friendly staff in Rotana, we have managed a truly great offer for a two connected rooms, since Oryx Rotana doesn't have any suites that can accommodate our number.

The hotel is 5 minutes away from the airport and is heavily frequented by airline crew, business travelers, Qatar Airways 8-hours plus waiting travelers, etc. The hotel has a sheesha garden with fine food and drinks offered in its yard, with liquor available on request. Another facility is an Asian restaurant wit ha sit-in bar aside from the famous jazz club, with requirement for reservations and mostly a dress code/ couples-only policy.

The hotel has a large buffet restaurant serving the main three meals, while facing their swimming pool. I have notified the management over time that their food items and choices in their breakfast are not appealing to kids or families, but they do have a point since this is a business-type hotel.

I was given the rooms 401 and 402, which are connected to each other on the 4th floor and overlooking the main lobby and right by the lift. Their service menu is truly good and I have to recommend trying their burger, I always order it when I arrive.

Being with kids in Qatar is a hassle if you don't own or rent a car. In Qatar, taxi services are monopolized by a single taxi company (karwa) or the hotel limo services (overrated and exaggerated in tariff). For Karwa, they are hard to find and sometimes leave you in a bind to allocate a one. It is recommended to rent a car in Qatar, since the rental rates are within the charges of getting taxis and going around. Unfortunately, I didn't rent a car and resorted to taxis, which was a hassle to allocate and the hotel at one time sent me an airport taxi, who asked for more than the regular rate while going to Souq Waqif because he is an airport taxi and charges more for it. I felt that the hotel didn't properly consider this and tell me about it. It was an extra 10 Riyals or so above tariff.

Back to the hotel, the staff are most accommodating during our stay with my kids and were truly affectionate towards them. They loved the live piano playing in the lobby. I was planning to write about my business stays for this hotel, but I think that a family visit would give another angle at it.
I do recommend the hotel for both, if you get a good competitive rate on a weekend.

This rates for me as my favourite hotel anywhere, in terms of the rooms, the atmosphere, facilities, location, friendly staff and great dining experiences.

I cannot recommend this hotel enough - it exceeds all expectations and impresses me more each time I stay.

Congratulations guys! A first class hotel that I'm sure Rotana are extremely proud of.
