I had a long connection in Doha and I wasn't planning on spending 12 hours exploring the airport lounge(s) overnight so I decided to spend the night at one of the Qatar Airways partner hotels. I was lucky to stay at Retaj Al Rayyan Hotel because that soft comfortable mattress was all I needed after a long flight from Cambodia.... More

This is hotel is very good value for money, is well situated in the business district and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

I'm a frequent business traveller and have visited Doha several times. The company put me up here this time (I usually stay across the street at the Hilton), so I ended up at the Retaj. POSITIVES: The rooms are large and beds comfortable. The rooms were clean. The price is reasonable. NEGATIVES: I would describe the food as modestly adequate;... More

Stayed at this hotel twice during lengthy stop overs. Staff were extremely friendly even in the early hours of the morning and check in was quick. Standard rooms were more like suite sizes compared to European hotels. Would use this hotel again. Airport transfer was efficient and on time.

The service wasn't good. The food was horrible. Chicken was too dry. The bathtub was clogged. I couldn't understand their English. I ask the employee in the front to help me get a taxi and he told me to go out on the streets to get one. They are not helpful and attentive. Would not come back.
