“Friendly service, beware of taxis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

Rooms: very nice. We could here some smallesh construction noice from the neighbour so slept with ear plugs. It was pretty cold in Qatar during our visit (+22 during days) and thus the rooms were a bit too cold and there is no heater.

Price: we paid 700QAR per night during the Hilton campaign.

Breakfast: really great!

Service: Extra friendly.

Location: At the diplomatic area, so a bit further from city center. So you need a 5-15 minute taxi to eat outside and view places.. Taxies are cheap.

Tip: The taxies from Hilton (and also elsewhere) try to take extra charges. Insist them on using the meter (most do not want to) and do check the starting fee. It should be 4QAR. Most of them try to put it to 25QAR which is meant to be used when you start your trip from the airport.

This hotel is everything you expect from a Hilton and more. I could go on about how amazingly luxurious the room and facilities are, but the treat was the outstanding service. I will go as far to say it's the best customer service my husband and I have ever experienced - and we travel a lot. Staff have that perfect balance between being friendly, accommodating, understanding, professional and non intrusive.

The only downside is the very pricey food and drinks, although this is the case throughout the city. However, the included breakfast was hearty and keeps you going throughout the day and a supermarket is only a ten minute stroll away.

We will definitely be back again.

This hotel has all the right ingredients. My wife and I had a breakaway for four days and picked the Hilton based on its previous reviews. We were not disappointed at all, from when we arrived at the hotel through to when we checked out.

As we wanted a pure relaxing break, we utilized all the facilities; the room service, spa treatments, restaurants and pool were excellent. The staff was attentive though not intrusive, anything we asked for was not a problem and there was that genuine tone in their voice, they wanted to please. In addition, I would say this hotel has one of the best equipped Executive Lounges I have ever used (had to check some emails).

Ali at the front desk, Christina from guest services and Mohamed at concierge were all stand-outs and made our stay exceptional.

Simply, if you want a great break in a great hotel – It is the Hilton Doha.

Outside the hotel – Try the Iraq Restaurant Al Adhamiyah down in Waqif Souk; the food and atmosphere was fantastic.

Room Tip: If possible book an Executive Room which gives you access to the private lounge.

The bubbly brunch at the Hilton in Doha was really good. A terrific array of foods. The sushi and salads were exceptional. Also the beef ribs were tender and delicious. The service is very good, the champagne was flowing. There was no problem to change tables and sit outside for desert and coffee. The band was good and not too loud. I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with marina view.

I have stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, the environment and the ambience with service was just mind blowing. The staff was very cooperative and helpful. Its the brand new hotel right next to all the major tourist attractions. Highly recommended if its within your budget.

We stayed here for a night in late January and wish we could have stayed longer. Everything from check-in to departure was a breeze. As others have said, the staff is beyond amazing -- polite, friendly and attentive, without being overly so. The room was spacious, lovely and well-appointed, the bathroom nearly a spa experience (travertine everywhere, lighted makeup mirror, rain shower and stand alone tub, luxury linens and toiletries, etc.) and the VIEW!! Our view of the turquoise water and impressive Doha skyline was incredible. The five-star treatment carries over to the beach beautiful pool and beach area, as well. We did not eat at the hotel but the restaurants looked great. Instead we ate while we were out -- the restaurant at the Islamic Art Museum, the City Center mall food court and the Souq Waqif.
