My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night during transit stay at Doha. The room was cosy and beautiful. Nice bathroom facilities. Staff was very helpful. We had a parcel that we brought for my cousin working in Doha but left early the next morning to catch our flight so we were unable to hand over parcel... More

I hated that this hotel was so far from the Airport area and Souq Wagif, But it was paid for by Qatar Airways. I had a suite, room, kitchen, living room et and a great view of the waterfront. However, the food was very salty, and poor quality, It can be better. Internet is 15 dollars a day.

Whilst in transit to Bali we were delayed for over 10 hours in Doha so Qatar Airlines gave us a voucher to make the wait more comfortable. Free bus from Airpot approx 20 mins to a nice hotel at first sight, efficient book-in and room allocated on the 13th floor. Rooms large and bright but decor a little dated and... More
