Reviewed 3 April 2014

It was a nice trip to Doha and also the stay in the Hotel Grand Regal was very nice. The way they treat me and also the facilities they provided was excellent. I can say the hotel is very neat and clean and also with all advanced facilities.

I really regret I didn’t check this website before I booked a room here.
The positive side: Rooms are ok, spacious and clean.
The negative side: Mainly all the rest. Slow to non-existing internet connection, breakfast and food in general is definitely not 5-star-quality nor is the staff. No information about the hotel services available in the room. Crappy service in general.

Room Tip: A room in a different hotel will be much better :)

Hotel situated in a crowded area; with hardly 2 or 3 vehicles able to stop in front.
Attended a birthday party in 12th floor of the hotel. Ambience there was good; don`t know whether parents or hotel management made arrangements of it.
Food was kept outside the party room. Out of the nearly 8-9 labelled food items, only 2 items were available. Others were just empty food trays. When enquired, staff quoted as - food from kitchen in ground floor need time to be brought to 12th floor. Hence the delay. Took more than half an hour for the food to be replenished, that too fish item was totally taken away and not seen again. Staff should have have replenished the food items as and when needed. Guests were passing by empty trays for a long time. Same situation with fruit and dessert section. Totally empty trays for a long time.

Hotel staff inside party hall were not upto the mark. We asked for soft drinks (which were seen delivered on other tables); which were never given till our vacating the hall (more than an hour after requesting).
Rest room nearby was totally dirty. No one there for cleaning / maintenance. Had to comeback without utilising.

Took another half an hour at hotelfront to get back car from valet parking area. Total chaos for the same; with staff there not organized. No one ready to collect back valet parking coupon. Just had to wait and wait there. At times, no staff at hotelfront with incoming vehicles waiting for staff to arrange for valet parking. In between, staff there collect 2 or 3 valet parking coupons at random; then stop collecting. Would have been better if a permanent staff member is there to collect valet parking coupons and request guests to wait.

Bad experience. Will not recommend this hotel.

I was booked in this hotel by my client just for a days visit to Doha. They claim to be a five star hotel, but from the car they use to pick you up in the airport your doubts will be aroused. Your doubts are cemented once you enter the hotel. The lobby is not great, the A/C in the lobby is not good (Though its nice in the rooms) and the staff are not well trained. Their mannerism and lack of confidence in English is very evident.

Anyway, the check in was ok. We have to ask to know about the hotel facilities like pool and breakfast timing etc. The room i was allotted had a strong cigarette odor. When i requested for another room, the staff were kind enough to do their best to find me another room. The other room they suggested had a twin bed, which i declined. And eventually they upgraded me to executive room which was much more spacious than the standard rooms. The room was clean, spacious and all the necessary amenities were available. The hotel also provides free wifi, which is very good.

They just have one restaurent. The ambience is good, not great. There was a live band from India, who murdered the songs. The music was loud and horrible. Also the staff were very loud and fighting in front of everyone. However, the food was great.

The hotel is located to close to the airport and nothing else. If you have a free evening and want to look around there is nothing nearby. I certainly would recommend hotel in the corniche or west bay area than this hotel, unless you have a early morning flight to catch and looking for a hotel nearby.

So the main positives are the free wifi and the rooms, which are spacious, clean and well equipped.

We enjoyed our visit to this hotel and enjoyed our dinner party with our family members. The Goan fish curry was the best. Mr.Ram and Mr.Nabil took good care of us during the dinner. The staff were very caring. the ambience was good and the food was very tasty and suitable for our family members. the Indian cuisine was the best. Those of you prefer Indian cuisine, this hotel restaurant is the best.
