“Not so much Leading Hotel”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

While the price / quality ratio is quite good, the hotel is unfortunately somewhat run-down with regards to the rooms (carpet faded out, in-room equipment partially broken, tv remote control requires PhD degreee to understand). I was even in a suite ...
Excellent breakfast buffet (same applies for lunch).
Fitness nice and complete, very nice pool.
Hamann (steam bath) broken, sauna to far away to be useful.

Room Tip: you will loose time in elevator, thus try to get at least a room close to the elevator to minimize t...

I am back in La Cigale.
And I went back to the Sky View Lounge.

And … YES!!! The wish was granted! Thank you!!!

No more passports, no more unnecessary questions, just our room keys let us in.

We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the view and the music.

Bravo.

La Cigale has the makings of a 5* hotel: comfortable, clean, luxurious rooms; attentive staff; brilliant gym and swimming pool. However, it lacks a certain something to give it the feel of anything more than a top end business hotel, which I suppose is what most of the guests are looking for.

I think this is the best hotel in Doha. I loved everything about it. The fitness center is always important to me and this one has the best I have ever seen.

My only negative is the bar was full and they would not let me enter as a hotel guest. I thought this was crazy, oh well......
