This hotel is a class above others in all departments when considering value for money.From check-in to check-out the staff are friendly,attentive and efficient and Mr. Sadeq, the manager, leads his team by his own very high standards of hospitality and professionalism. Excellent rooms and suites match the facilities and restaurant. Ample parking spaces for easy access. I will not hesitate to book this hotel again.

Excellent location 10 minutes from the airport and 5 by taxi to the popular Suq el Waqif, the hotel is quiet, welcoming, pleasant and warm. The suite was simply superb, huge, but not empty, with a very comfortable bed, bathrooms etc. although lighting a little confusing.
Buffet breakfast was fine, service great and all in all a near perfect stay. Could not recommend this hotel more highly for the money.

Room Tip: Ideally on the upper floors, bay views a little obscured by other buildings, you can still see acros...

We, a couple with a 3 and half year old child, have spent a couple of nights (not consecutive).

The hotel is very close to the airport (taxi raid in daylight was around 25 ryials) and a short walk from the Islamic Museum which is worth a visit also because is free.

The check in of the first night was a bit slow because of a misunderstanding on the nights (due to the arrival time around the change of the day). This was compensated by an upgrade to the suite room 808.

Overall, for us, a very good hotel. Rooms are huge and bed very comfortables. A bit tricky to understand the functioning of the lights but nothing other than that. Free wifi in common areas.
Breakfast very rich and varied.

This was the best quality/price ratio we have found in expensive Doha, in terms of lodgings. So for us a very good stay.

I stayed here during Ramadan for about 10 days.
Location is good, it is near to airport and also the Souq Waqif.

Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Rooms are really large.

Nice indoor pool and gym area.

Personally I thought the breakfast was ok - a good selection but after a few days it got a little tired. We also had an evening meal there which again was just ok. I only ate in the buffet so didn't try all of their restaurants.

I would very happily stay in this hotel again but I do think it could do with some improvements.
Wifi was expensive in your room. It's free in the public areas but if you want it in your room I think it is expensive. Since I was there for business I needed it in my room.

Also the lights in the room. The lights were controlled by a main panel in the room along with everything else (air con, power, do not disturb etc) however it was not a simple task to have one bedside light left on that you switched off from your bed. It's a small petty thing but just annoying.

Overall though, this is a very good hotel if you are on business and I think is excellent value.

Big rooms, good breakfast, helpful staff, short drive from the airport & souq Wagif.
I stayed 1 night in RETAJ ROYAL, reception was nice, our room was big about 50 square meters + big & nice bathroom. Location is good close to tha airport & Souq Waqif but U should have a car, nothing is around by walking distance. I don’t think it is 5 stars but it is really nice & confirmable. When I get back to Doha I will stay here sure.

Room Tip: all rooms are big & nice
