The rooms are good and the location is great near city center Doha mall but the service was very dab and they take very long time to service a customer. الموقع ممتاز قرب فندق سيتي سنتر الدوحه و المساحات حلوه و لكن النظافه تعيسة و المكان ملئ بالغبار و الخدمة جدا تعيسة و بطيئه لدرجة اطلع اكياس شاي و توصل...

Since I needed two rooms for this trip, this seemed like a good idea, and I booked the 2-bedroom apartment. They upgraded us to a 3-bedroom apartment, which was very spacious. The whole building must have been designed as an apartment block, and turning it into a hotel seemed like an afterthought, which was very obvious from the cheap decor... More

You need to be patient and keep calm when staying at governor. Patient because most of the 6 elevators have problems...so you can wait five minutes for an elevator to lift you up. And five minutes is so long when you are in a hurry. When in the elevator, it can stop 5 to 10 times as housekeeping teams are... More

I stayed here with my 2 daughters (8 and 6) plus hubby and we were not disappointed. Everyone from the reception staff to the limo driver to the concierge were lovely and couldn't do enough to help. The expats and locals living here were also extremely hospitable, many saying hi as we passed in lifts and corridors. The suite was... More

Pricr for room was very reasonable. Rooms were clean, airy and spacious. However, no one in Housekeeping was answering when we called for our needs! We had to buy whatever we needed at the mall next door! No news paper in the morning too. Buffet breakfast is 80 percent Arabic Food. You also can not change the room's temp according... More

The Governor is ideally located just 5 minutes walk from City Centre Mall which has most things you would need with a massive Carrefour Supermarket as part of it. I spent 10 nights here in a 3 bedroom suite shared with colleagues I was working with, instead of staying in a hotel. The suite has most things you would need... More

This is a trade off between quantity – great and generous – and quality – ok but not special. It is conveniently located near the city centre mall and financial district on the edge of the diplomatic area, and is probably ideal for a family. However, the business traveller may find a more conventional hotel, as the furnishings are pretty... More

The hotel in general suitable for families, also the hotel staff is friendly and helpful in meeting the demands of customers but it must be classified as a four-star only also the location of the hotel is very excellent and the buffet breakfast is also good, although it contains the same items every day, and during my stay this week...

Reception staff disinterested to the point of rudeness, room keys stopped working 4 times! On the 4th time I was told it was my fault for keeping them together near other cards even though I'd explained I'd kept both keys separately and away from magnets etc. Light switches confusing/poorly working, washing machine made my clothes smell. Aircon noisy and confusing,... More
