Booked for a night to have a rest between two flights. At arrival, the receptionists did not find our reservation, as it was made 20 mins ago and the reservations department don't work after five... Was a bit disappointing to wait after a long day of travel. The concierge staff members were very nice, helped with the bags and offered... More

I was accommodated in this hotel for one night due to the long airport transit time. Everything was perfect during my stay in Retaj Al Rayyan. However, hotel service made me really disappointed when I called them to find my watch I lost there. I just recognized that I forget my watch at the hotel when I left the hotel.... More

The Delegation from Kyrgyz Republic spent 3 weeks there and was deeply touched by the hospitality and attention by the staff and the facility generally. The manager of the Food and Beverage Dept Mr. Brahim Bouzzit attended all our needs in the most kindest manner. With best wishes from Kyrgyzstan.

We visited the hotel as transit passengers on 31. January 2016. As we had a break more than 8 hours in Doha on the way to Berlin from Cochin by Qatar Airways we spend some hours in this hotel. The transfer to the hotel from the airport in Doha is well organised. People took care immediately on arrival in the... More

Decent 4 star hotel in the diplomatic district, at circa 125 usd a nigh online. Make sure you get the real deal with free wifi and breakfast. The person at check-in on 26/1/16 was not helpful in making efforts to give same deal to our team of 4. The breakfast is grandiose and can serve you for lunch. The bed... More

Retaj hotel offers spacious rooms in a very nice location in Doha. I was upgraded to a junior suit by the very nice and helpful staff. Breakfast is good and wifi is available for free. The hotel is at walking distance from Carrefour and others shops and mall. It's a cost- effective hotel. I do recommend this hotel for travelers.

I stayed at the Retaj Al Rayyan on a business trip for 4 nights in early January 2016. On arrival the hotel seemed fairly welcoming, everything looked smart and well kept. Check in took longer than it should have and I'm not completely sure all of my questions were fully understood but after an 8 hour flight I was simply... More

The hotel appeared as the standard first class hotels in Doha that I've been accommodated in by Qatar Airways when long transfer time. Very busy, spacious rooms, good beds and restaurant with huge lunch/dinner buffé. But in Retaj I was disappointed by rather unfriendly staff in both reseption and housekeeping. The last I had to call several times due to... More

I spent close to 24 hours in this hotel after I missed a connecting flight from Doha airport. This is one of the hotels used by Qatar Airways for their passengers. Overall my stay was satisfactory. The rooms were comfortable and clean, but there were quite a few signs of wear and tear, especially in the bathrooms, for example, sloppy... More
