“Great Hotel In Doha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

Have stayed there 3 nights in February for a quick tourism trip. The staff is very friendly and nice. Room are nice and clean. I've had an upgrade to a suite and wow it's huge. They even give me free Wifi for the duration of my stay.

The location is excellent being a walking distance from Souq Waqif, Islamic Museum and the Corniche. The free breakfast is very good and have plenty of choice. The pool is also nice if you are with kids.

Highly recommended.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

This hotel is more aptly a 4 star in my opinion. The rooms are very large and the beds comfortable. The breakfast was fair ( not great quality, healthy choices for me). The TV did not work despite having the tech help get it working twice only to have it quit. The hotel is in an odd location, sort of an alley. Friends who have lived in Doha for 7 years had never heard of ithe hotel and had difficulty finding it (as did our taxi driver). I preferred our stays at two other 5star hotels in Doha over the course of our three weeks here.

First impressions were good on arrival with friendly reception staff. The room was by British standards, gigantic for a standard double and felt more like a suite. I had a lounge area and a decent desk area to work which was very handy. Clean and modern, the bathroom was verging on luxurious. I went for the buffet every evening and it didn't disappoint, with different dishes each night that were all nice - particularly good was the Oum Ali desert, which was a first for me.

The only downsides - I seemed to have only lukewarm water - but after reporting this I was told they were having pumping issues and I had to leave it running for 10 minutes (literally) for it to get hot, which it did. This didn't really bother me once I knew. In addition I would say the WiFi charges were expensive - in my case my employer was paying but I wouldn't have liked to pay their rates out of my own pocket.

Overall a great stay, I would return.

Every thing was excellent, on arrival we had a free upgrade to a large suite, nice and very clean with comfortable bed, very helpful and friendly staff (Special thanks to Mohamed Sadeq), very good breakfast buffet, nice swimming pool and gym. Excellent location near the market (Souq Waqif) and Corniche. We really enjoyed our stay.

We had 22 hour spare in Doha and booked this place as a day room. We had a very spacious room which was great for when in the middle of two flights. The hotel is walking distance from he Cornice and the Islamic Museum of Art.
The hotel was very accommodating given our very odd travel times (arrive 3am, check out 10pm) which wasn't the case with all the hotels I contacted.
