“A perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

I stayed in Retaj Residence Al Corniche for half a year and it was a great experience. The apartments were perfectly furnished, very clean, spacious and classy. It has superb room service. The staff were very polite and helpful. The food was great, the Coffee Zone has a great Italian taste for coffee and it is located in the heart of Qatar's best destinations like Souk Waqif, The Museum of Islamic Art, the famous Al Corniche and more. It is very close to the airport as well. I highly recommend this hotel for both short and long term stay.

I was lucky to have stayed at Retaj in Feb. 2012. It was the first time I was visiting Qatar, & Retaj enhanced the hospitality & relaxation of Qatar as a tourist. It has a very welcoming atmosphere & the staff was extremely hospitable & polite. I also met the G.M Adil, who was very kind & hospitable. The rooms were well decorated, clean & spacious with large windows of the outside beautiful view. The bedding was amazing! The bathroom was spotless clean with great accessories & the laundry/dry cleaning service too was well organized. Food was awesome including the breakfast bar & the coffee shop. I would greatly recommend this hotel to travelers.

I stayed at the Retaj in December 2011. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were spacious, elegant and very clean. The staff members were very professional, courteous and helpful. It was the first time I have been to Qatar and I was very impressed. The hotel is located near the museum and other destinations which made it easy for us to enjoy Qatar. The food was
great and I loved the coffee at the coffee shop. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Retaj in June 2012 for a workshop we were holding in the hotel. The rooms were large, spacious and very clean. The bath products were a very high quality and the service throughout the hotel was excellent. The restaurant offered lots of choice of fresh quality food for all tastes. The hotel, in terms of value for money could not be beat, although I believe we received a significantly reduced rate as compared to the usual rate for the hotel. The gym facilities were adequate and there was a lovely indoor pool. The only complaint is that the sound barrier between the rooms isn't great, so the crying baby that was next door to me during one of the nights could be clearly heard, a complaint also heard from my colleague who was staying on a different floor next door to a family with several children. There were a lot of families in the hotel during our stay. The conference support seemed also to be very good. The free Wifi was also a bonus, particularly for this calibre of hotel. The only thing to be aware of is this is a dry hotel, with no alcohol served, should this be a particular interest for you. It is also well located for the Souq, Corniche and museum of Islamic Arts. With taxis being very cheap in Doha, getting around is pretty easy and inexpensive anyway, so even if you are going further afield, the Retaj is still a good option.
