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 have stayed here on two occasions, separated by a four year hiatus. On the second occasion it was noticeable how the lack of maintenance and upgrading had taken their toll on this hotel.
