Although we haven't ever stayed in this particular hotel in Doha, we went there for lunch at their American Grill today as we have done on many occasions during our three years here in Doha. Very happy with the restaurant - good food and polite staff and open during Ramadan which is why we return. One of the reasons we... More

The building may not look as fancy as all the others but as soon as you get in it starts at the reception, Service with a smile! When coming into your apartment the difference is set due to the combination of the amount of light coming in and the interior being used. Since I stay here for a longer period,... More

My company put me up in one of the 2 bedroom apartments at the Somerset Westbay. I really enjoyed my stay at the Somerset and the housekeeping staff and front desk staff were great. The apartments looks nice although the building itself is probably one of the older buildings in the area and is a bit outdated. They have scaffolding... More

I lived here for almost a year so I am very familiar with the pros and cons of this hotel. Firstly the pros. It's one of the few places where you can rent an apartment on a short term basis, which is very handy for those starting in Doha and looking for something more permanent. The apartments are comfortable, of... More

I stayed here for six months from Sept 2013 through to March 2014. Apartments are comfortable, well equipped and comfortable ... location is very good for anyone working in the West Bay (as it was cooler I was able to walk to work in one of the towers alongside the Corniche) and as the Somerset is close to the City...

I spent a night in a big suite during a week day in November at this all apartment hotel. The location is excellent. The staff were very nice and accommodating. I loved the breakfast which is part of the room rate. This is a long term stay property. The big disappointment of my stay was the terrible wifi availability……this is... More

We rented a 3 bedroom apartment in Somerset and think it is superb. The highlight are the staff in reception who couldn't be more accommodating, they make us feel so welcome and have sorted out all our niggles really quickly. With regards to wireless, we can confirm that they are extending this throughout the hotel and within 2 days of... More
