    I was here for a week, looking at a job and the staff were so helpful. It was Ramadan so we had to have breakfast upstairs on top floor which was not so good. On the last day we were back in normal breakfast room which I liked. The food was good too. I wish I could have eaten more... More

    I stayed here three nights on a business trip and the hotel was a great hub. The decor was very welcoming and the room was spacious and had everything I needed. It's near a mall for food and has some good views of the newer parts of Doha. Breakfast was included and started early enough that I could enjoy it... More

    Stopped here on a layover. Upon arrival, was impressed with the lobby and service. Room was amazing with plush bed and furniture in the sitting room. Sunrise view from the window overlooking the Gulf was amazing. Would stay again, no question.

    The hotel is situated at a nice location, amidst lot of other hotels. The service on the other hand is not upto standards. There is no wifi in the rooms (still living in old ages). The food does not offer much variety and lacks taste often. The staff needs training also. The infrastructure also needs improvement as many basic things... More
