I've stayed twice at Retaj Al Rayyan and have been quite happy with it on both occasions. Rooms are fair size, clean and comfortable. Biggest let-downs are that there's no free internet in the rooms and reception and restaurant staff are not super-attentive. For me as a one-night guest these were not major issues, although I think I would be... More
