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

I spent a year at the Retaj and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I only left because I needed more space, so moved to another Retaj property the Retaj Al Corniche. I enjoyed my time very much indeed and would not hesitate to return or recommend others.

I have stayed in this hotel for a night. I found this place is good with clean rooms without noise and good restaurant with good food. Staffs were friendly and service oriented also. The Doha city view from the hotel is also an attraction.
