I spent there 5 months, and i think is price wise is very expensive. The cleaning service is low quality, and they forgot about replacing the towels constantly, and the cutlery is greasy after their cleaning. They have probably the worst pool in Doha.

Stayed here in 2011 and sadly due to construction and traffic no better with noise in 2015 but that is Doha. Best apartments to get are corner ones as they have utility rooms - great for storage. Rooms well set up, good kitchen (no dishwasher); washing machine provided easy to operate. Internet - no wifi expected to buy own router... More

I have been recommended by my relocation consultants (Writer Relocations / Cartus Relocations) to move into this service apartment for few months until I obtain the work permit visa. I have been staying here for the past three months, and my stay has been very pleasant and comfortable! Very warm staff, quality house keeping services, hygiene well maintained! Friendly reception...

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The apartments looks nice although the building itself is probably one of the older buildings in the area and is a bit outdated.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
