We travelled with Qatar airways to the Maldives. The aircrafts were very modern, Dreamliner 787 from Brussels to Doha and then on an Airbus 321. The dreamliner is very impressive on the inside even in economy with much larger windows and very chic light diffusing style. On our return we stayed one night in Doha, offered by Qatar airways.

Location was opposite the water, which was nice, but because of all the construction happening around it is difficult to get down to the water. We had room service during our stay but the food was...

We used this hotel for the first time when we could get very little else due to a big event in Doha. Spent 2 nights here, the room was not bad although the advertised sea view was a side view. There was no hot water in the bathroom, only luke warm, the food was nothing special and also not hot.... More

We stayed at Retaj Al Rayyan (courtesy Qatar Airways). We reached the hotel at around 12.45am and the check in process was quite fast and efficient.

Everything was perfect except the internet as it was not free inside rooms while its free in lobby..!! It should be free charge in rooms as internet became one of the important things in life whatever for personal or business uses.

Junior staff are friendly and try hard. Small groups of managers are often to be seen but rarely approach to see how things are. Food choice rather repetitive, with some similar or same dishes appearing at lunch and evening...grilled chicken, sliced beef etc. would be better with food theme nights. Unfortunately it is not unusual for some meals to be... More

Stayed for a 3 night stay. Chose this hotel for the location and price and its value for money. Big spacious room and helpful staff. OK breakfast and very helpful staff. Wifi free in the lobby but cost 50 riyals in the room for 24 hours. A good stop over hotel, nothing more, nothing less.
