Having flown Business Class on Qatar Airlines from New York to Johannesburg we were offered a complimentary "stay over" at the Oryx Rotana Hotel. Not having flown either Qatar Airlines or visited Doha we were not sure what to expect when we landed at the airport at 7pm.

My wife and I have been travelling overseas a number of times a year,on both Business and pleasure trips since 1975 and have hadwonderful experiences at various hotels. This stay at the Oryx Rotana has beaten them all and the service could easily beat the service provided on the Luxury American Cruises that we have also done some 35 times.

On arrival at the Doha airport we were wisked away by the ground staff to the Immigration Department in order for them to supply us a Visa to enter Doha. The completed Visas were returned within 3 minutes and we were immediately taken to the Hotel's airport courtesy desk. Because the receptionist was busy with another customer we were taken to the Magnificent Arrivals lounge to wait. No sooner had we arrived and had been offered complimentary drinks and something to eat, than we were told that the Hotel Limousine was waiting too take us to the Hotel.

On arrival at the Hotel we were met at the door by various hotel staff who insisted on taking all our luggage and parcels from us so that all I had in my hand was the passport and temporary visa. The checking in at the hotel was professionaly done within a minute; no queue, no wanting credit card imprssions; no lengthy documents asking for all your family records.

We were advised that besides the room being complimentary they also offered Dinner, Drinks and Breakfast "Complimentary".

We were then taken to our room which really turned out to be a Magnificent Suite. One of the largest we have ever stayed in. In fact my wife and myself were continuously whistling to find where each other was. The bathroom facilities were also amazing and large and all the necessary soaps, shower gels and bathroom accessories were also provided.

The food downstairs which was a buffet was beautifully displayed, exremely tasty and plentiful. The dishes were all tagged with labels so you knew what each dish was and the degrees of 'Spiciness". Once again the service was empeccable and the entire area shined from Cleanliness.

Our wake up call was spot on time and as we were about to leave the hotel for the airport ,our Limousine arrived to fetch us for our return flight.

Friends and family have inundated us to get news about the family and friends that we visited but quite frankly those experiences pale into insignificance when I can talk about our stay at the Oryx Rotana Hotel.

Will we stay there again? You Bet. Except next time it will not be an overnight, it will be a lot Longer.

Sincerely

Aubrey and Sandra Lampert

I have stayed here for one day. It was a business travel. The hotel is high-end, really nicely done and actually it is owned by Qatar Airways. This will tell everything about hospitality. The rooms are spacey and this is the only hotel where I have seen a usable desk where you can actually work (you have enough space for your staff). The food was excellent! The airport is basically one minute away, however the hotel is really far from the city center. It is designed for posh transfers and business. But for that: it is wonderful.

Used this hotel for one night on a stopover. It is the closest hotel to the airport so a big thumbs up for convenience. The hotel provides free airport transfers. rooms and service were good. I would recommend this and plan on staying here again for any Doha stopovers.

I've stayed at several hotels in Doha but this is the first I've reviewed. I think it's fair to say that there is a very good selection of high quality hotels in Doha.
Anyone staying at the Oryx Rotana will not be disappointed. As you leave the airport, the Oryx desk is situated to your right with all the other hotel desks. We were able to check in at the desk which was very straightforward and then we were taken to the courtesy bus which took us to the hotel (approx 5 minutes).
As it was 6.30am (we had early check-in) we went straight into breakfast. I'm used to buffet-style breakfasts but this was one of the best selections I've had.
My room was tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed. The shower was awesome and big enough for four people!
After a few hours by the pool we had lunch in The Cellar. Again the food was excellent and very well presented.
When we came to check out the reception staff said we had just missed the shuttle bus. As we needed to get to the aiprport, the staff member asked the concierge to get one of the hotel's cars for us. Within 2 minutes there was a Mercedes waiting at the door to whisk us to the airport.
The standard of the hotel is similar to the Marriott, Intercontinental and Hilton but the friendliness and efficiency of the staff together with its proximity to the airport would make this my preferred hotel for future stays.

Loved everything. Great all day dining restaurant that served extensive selections for dinner and breakfast. Guest relations, housekeeping and room service staff left no stone unturned to make the brief stay memorable and comfortable. Fruit bowl on arrival, complementary housekeeping service to refresh the room before bedtime, complentary limousine service to the airport when the regular shuttle was delayed by a group of Italians running late.
