“Amazing suite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stopped over at this hotel for one night and arrived very early in the morning so sadly didn't have a lot of time to stay in the hotel. When we stepped in we already wanted to stay much longer! We aren't really very experienced with suites but it was spacious and on the top floor so had wonderful views.
However I don't think the area where the hotel is located is very known to locals, and both our taxi driver and someone picking us up found it hard to find the hotel; but it's very near the airport, Souq Waqif, and Doha national museum which was still under construction so there were annoying drilling noises throughout the night but I would expect that anywhere in Doha. Would have liked the netted curtains to pull back so the view could be seen in it's entirety and the AC was a little noisy but it's needed in the heat!

Room Tip: Pick the suite if you can!!

Dear Valued Guest
I was very impressed about your nice comments about the hotel, actually the hotel location is perfect - we are only five minutes from the Gulf, 5 minutes from Souq Wakef, and 10 minutes from the city centre, the construction around us is because of the new museum which will be one of the most beautiful attractions in Doha, once finished the guest can easily walk to the museum, besides the metro station will be few steps from the hotel
As for the A/C I will check on it and will rectify the problems on the spot
Thank you again for your nice comments and hope to see you again in our hotel
Best regards

For my transit in Doha, Qatar Airlines offered to stay at this hotel. It has a king size bed, a bath tub, a shower, and a good enough size of room for my transit. They also gave us a morning buffet. If we stay there for a vacation, it's also good to be there.

Room Tip: I have no idea but my room is okay.

Reception staff was mostly rude. I sensed the bad behavior on several occasions. The cleaning guy would hardly greet or even respond back to a greeting.

My room was noisy. The only good thing was the behavior of Manager. Mr Hesham, who was already ready to listen.

Had a chance to stay in this hotel.

Cheap but would say below average, location is not good first of all, in the middle of construction site and early in the morning you can hear the excavators beeping sound – if you are person to get up due to small sound, this isnt the place. Unfortunately I cant sleep with slightest of noise and hence had to get up everyday at 4am. Rooms are not sound proof either.

Food wise not impressed either. Buffet breakfast had variety but mostly fried food, which is not the type to have in the mornings. Tried in room dining, was delivered quite quick but was cold.

Hotel had spa and gym but didn’t get time to check it out as every night trying to catch sleep of the previous night…

Staff were friendly and helpful.

Would not recommend if you are going for business trips.

Dear Mr Mohammed
Thank you very much for your comments while you were staying in our hotel and let me clarify some points for you , the construction around us is for the new museum one of the best land mark in Doha , the place will be the hub of all the tourist once the project will be done
the breakfast selection is quite high , not only fried items , the boiled egg , the scrambled egg , the beans , the mash potatoes , the whole selection of cheese and cold cuts , cereal , mushroom rise soup it is almost a brunch - so I am sorry you did not enjoy it - however I will speak to the chef to improve it better as for the room service I will look definitely to the matter and the food should be hot while served , our hotel is having a four star standard with free wifi in all the rooms and public area , 72 channels with 8 paid sport channels , IP telephone , mini bar and a safe deposit box in the room , every bathroom is equipped with a shower and a bath tub I don't believe we are cheap hotel , thank you again for your comments and please feel free to call me if you want to stay in our hotel again
thank you

Dear Mr. DeepakDCunha
thank you very much for your nice comments , we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the century hotel in Doha, in fact the location is congested due to the construction of the new museum in Doha, the road will be clear and leading to the museum at the end of this year.
our location will be the best location in town , 5 minutes to the museum , 10 minutes to the Souk and 5 minutes drive to the gulf shore .
we hope to see you again in our hotel , feel free to call me personally for any further assistance

Many people staying one night in Doha will be there on business, as I was, and my needs were:
Comfortable and clean room, Wi-Fi; Parking, Accessible Location. This place is dry so if you are looking for alcoholic drinks it may not be for you. I found this place after doing a search through a hotel booking website, and the rate was less than 50% of any well known chain brand. However, on the internet it looked like it met my criteria, and the price was good.

I have to say, this hotel exceeded my expectations, and I say this having tried a number of non-brand name hotels around the world. I was in a hire car, and gave my details to reception before parking in the underground car park. My room key was ready for me when I got back from the car park, with no wait at all. The room was excellent, with a comfortable bed, large work space, large clean bathroom with a walk in rain shower, and tea/coffee making equipment. The Wi-Fi also worked well, and was free. Breakfast was fine, with a reasonable (bearing in mind the price) selection of cereal, hot dishes, a good toaster, fruit and juices, and the staff on duty were great.

All in all, the place was great, and I will certainly stay there again. Two minor points to mention:
1. The electronic light controls controlled from a panel by the bed seemed over complicated, or did not work as well as it should - not sure this is really necessary
2. The location is quite congested. I arrived at about 9:30 at night and the narrow roads around the hotel were very busy.

Room Tip: The higher you are the better the view

I spent a night here courtesy of Qatar Airways transfer. There was no one to pick me up at Arrivals , so after waiting for about 20 minutes I was advised to take a taxi and ask the hotel to pay. And that is what I did. The hotel staff did not hesitate to make payment. [I honestly thought it was going to be a scuffle].
The rooms are big and comfortable. Dinner on the house was brought up to my room, but I failed to get warm water in the shower even after running it for about 5 min. I guess I was too tired to wait longer. [My colleague said that, she showered warm water but that it took awhile to come through]

I was woken up an hour ahead of my hotel pick up and was given a breakfast pack which I though was rather cute.

Definitely, highly recommended. I just wished that I could stay longer. :-)
