“good stopover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

I stayed 1 night as stop over to Europe from Australia. Food was great, good quality and plenty (buffet breakfast, buffet dinner). Staff extremely helpful. Clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again. Hotel has airport shuttle service, great as only other transport option is taxis and they can be expensive. Walking distance to the 2 souks and musuem of Islamic art, all well worth looking at.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

What a fantastic experience. I was picked up from the airport as prearranged (free of charge) and even taken to a bank to change some money before going to the hotel. The room was great with a huge (and I mean huge) double bed that could sleep 4. Breakfast started at 6.30am but got in at 6.00am with no questions asked and very nice food. Hotel buffet for dinner was excellent value at 55riyals. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again and what a fantastic location - 10 mins walk from Al Corniche Road and Souq Waqif. The hotel even aranged a free hotel taxi to take me to the airport at midnight. Hope you enjoy your stay at this great hotel.

We stayed at Gloria for one night as a stopover and I find this Hotel is great considering the location. It is a short drive from airport and they provide you the shuttle service or taxi paid by the hotel. The room and dinner buffet was great for the price. It is walking distance from the Museum of Islamic Art and other water front activities and the Doha Square area where there are some shopping activities. The hotel was kind enough to give us access to B'fast buffet even before its opening since we had to rush to the airport around 6.00 AM.

I have stayed here numerous times mostly overnight. Pretty comfortable and ideal for business travelers.
Food wise you don't have many options, but their buffet menu should make you feel OK.
Service was good.

This hotel is very adequate but it's not the kind of place you will talk about long after you leave. Everything is a bit dated and the beds are hard but it has all the usual essentials. Internet is free and, as other reviewers have said, it's within walking distance to the Souq Waqif. We were there for two nights and had to constantly get the electronic keys to the rooms reset which was frustrating but the staff were nice. The concierge,Roberto, was helpful. The breakfast was absolutely fine, a good range of hot and cold food and the shuttle from the airport was efficient.The proximity to the mosque was a bit close for our liking as it meant very early morning starts and there was also considerable construction noise from nearby buildings. A four star rating would be about right.

Stayed a a transit passenger with Qatar Airways at the Gloria hotel. Took a little to get picked from the airport, but hotel is very clean, modern and super close to the airport. Very convenient shuttle buses and staff are friendly and flexible.

The immediate surroundings are uninviting but it is a short walking distance both to the Musuem of Islamic Art and the big Souk Waqif which are arguably the two most interesting places to see in Doha. If you want a glass of wine with your dinner the taxi back and forth to W will cost you much less than the difference in price for the hotel.

The hotel is well run with large comfortable rooms of good standard. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast buffet has all you need for both continental and arabic breakfast.
