a very distinctive hotel where you can feel you a time traveled to the history. All furniture was selectively wise and unique. Each has named based on the cities in Qatar. Staying here is really worth trying and a very affordable rate. You wont regret it

I have not seen any of the other hotels in doha from the inside, but the SouqWaqif is just amazing! I used the airport transport from the hotel (so no trouble finding a taxi or carrying heavy suitcases) and was very warm welcomed! The room was really spacious and looked exactly like the pictues on their website! It was on... More

Firstly, the location next to the souq is great, but it is difficult, if not impossible to get a taxi as they cannot come close to the hotel and they are not to be found in peak times out on the streets. The room was nice enough, but the lack of a window makes spending time in the room rather... More

Always wanted to stay at the Hotel Souq Waqif and finally got the chance. Fantastic location, espcially if you are there to take photos as it is in the souq, on the corniche and everywhere is walkable. Having said that this is just as well as the facilities for parking a rental are not at all good and is probably... More

Doha is succombing to the Dubai-disease, and, unlike in Oman, it's hard to find much that reminds you where you are. The main exception to this sad state of architectural affairs is the Hotel Souq Waqif. On the edge of the bazaar of the same name, its architecture echoes that of several large buildings within the souq. Perhaps best of... More

I chose the Hotel Souq Waqif for my 2-night stopover in Doha based on TripAdvisor reviews, because I wanted a hotel in walking distance to the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) and, always being fascinated by souqs, to Souq Waqif. Although the hotel is a bit pricey, particularly if you are travelling on your own, I don't think I could... More

The souq itself has a lot of character and this hotel sits snugly in it. The rooms were nice but nothing to rave about. I didn't try the restaurant. Heavy luggage is a disadvantage not only because the rooms don't provide a suitcase stand but more because the taxi cannot drive up to the doorstep when dropping you off. Also... More
