“Stylish business stay in Doha”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Swimming pool? Beach? Bars? Restaurants? You wont find them at the Zubarah but what you will find is a " functional " business hotel that very much fits the bill.
Located just off c ring rd in a residential/office environment, the hotel is quite striking from the outside but the treats lie within.
Excellent service from staff who are keen to make an impression in a new hotel ( thank you Chast and May - the friendly reception staff).
Tastefully decorated rooms with smart TV, delightful coffee maker, BEAUTIFUL bed, lovely toiletries, etc.
Excellent breakfast with the option to dine outside.
In room dining competitively priced( 40R Chicken Quesadilla dish) with taste to match.
Small but functional gym that i had full use to.
A beautiful restaurant on the top floor with wonderful outdoor dining and views across Doha( i forecast this will become a sought after place to eat )
The true test for Zubarah will come in the fullness of time and their ability to maintain the current high standards, but for your business stop over in Doha, dont hesitate to book the Zubarah.

In the last few years a number of good hotels have opened in Doha, but most of these are expensive and when you're only on business for a couple of days you just don't feel like paying top dollar for somewhere you're only sleeping and possibly having breakfast. Zubarah is new and it is, in my opinion, unique in Doha at this time because it's not expensive but it delivers a first class product: it's clean, it's tastefully decorated, it's comfortable, breakfast was not over the top but it was good, and, service is excellent (and let's face it service in the Gulf isn't as good as it used to be)

Wonderful stay at the Zubarah. The hotel has a classy modern arabic style and smells good. Mr. Omar the hotel manager knows how to pay attention to detail and make you feel special. In my opinion ...we in the United States could learn about customer service from the staff at the hotel. They are first class all the way. The staff and Mr. Omar is what made our stay so nice. Clean rooms..clean hotel...nice breakfast buffett. The hotel is only a year old so the cab drivers did not know always where the hotel was..just carry a hotel card with you with the hotel phone number on it and have the cab driver call the hotel...no problem. Thanks again Mr. Omar for such a wonderful stay!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms I am sure are wonderful.

I stayed here for 1 night by myself. The hotel is new and well fitted out in a modern arabic style.

The hotel is a bit tricky to get to as it doesn't have a proper place to pull into and my taxi driver had some difficulty finding the hotel (even though I had a printed map with me).

I arrived quite late in the evening and check in was pleasant and straight forward (a rarity in the Middle East). My room was spacious and well presented. But...the first room overlooked the very busy road out the front and the noise was terrible despite the double glazed windows. I asked for a new room and luckily this was available and I moved immediately. The new room was much quieter (facing the back).

The bathrooms are lovely with great products, although my bath didnt' drain particularly well. The towels, linen and bed were fantastic.

The breakfast was of a good quality but I couldn't work out what time they opened and when I arrived they didn't seem ready despite it being after 7am. Once they got going it was fine. The breakfast selection isn't as extensive as some of the large chain hotels but was of a good quality. the staff were clearly still learning their roles and it felt a little awkward trying to get a cup of coffee and a cooked egg.

I would stay here again and it was conveniently close to the airport which was a key consideration for me.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room at the back of the hotel. The rooms overlooking the road are very noisy.

Besides the elegant style and noticeable cleanliness of the hotel, what impressed us the most was the attitude of the general manager, Mr. Omar. Attending personally to every little detail to make sure our stay is enjoyable, he really made us feel as if we were the only guests at the hotel. Thank you Mr. Omar. Zubarah is definitely the place to stay.

From the pickup at the airport, to the welcome from the hotel team, my stay at Zubarah Boutique Hotel Doha was a total delight. The hotel is extremely warm and welcoming, and a real change from the big International Hotels in the market. I must commend Omar who is the Hotel Manager for his leadership and excellent choice of team members. From the restaurant to the spa the team were always professional and attentive. One of the key features of this new hotel is the ease of which all the IT (wifi, TV etc) appliances within the room operate also a big change from many competitor new hotels. I look forward to a return visit and would encourage all travellers looking for a refreshing new experience to try out this lovely boutique hotel. Great work to everyone.
