“Excellent hotel, service and beach/pool area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I was pleased w. everything during my visit to the Hilton Doha; we had a nice executive room which gave us access to the executive lounge for breakfast, free happy hour each evening and coffee breaks. This was really worth the extra upgrade we agreed upon during arrival. Everything from the concierge-service, location, beach area, spa, gym etc. was up to great standards and all employees was very nice and forthcoming.

The only negative I have to say was that it wasn't possible to order a beer or liquor on the beach or in the beach bar (or outside overall). That was something I expected since it was on the menu. But I guess they are very strict w. the alcohol consumption in Doha in general.

Thanks Hilton Doha, best Hilton I have ever stayed at!

Stayed for 4 nights over New Year period. I can't fault this hotel at all for both the cleanliness, location, staff and general overall atmosphere.

The beach location is really lovely and everyone made us feel welcome. We had access to executive lounge for our stay and was really impressed once again by levels of service and quality - the people we came in contact with are a real credit to this hotel.

Big thanks to the the room attendants (they don't go unforgotten) again we chatted to them and was very friendly and our room was always well cleaned and tidy and smelled really fresh.

I'd fully recommend this hotel,we had originally planned to go to the Renaissance in the city mall however after seeing it, we are glad we made the choice with the Hilton. Please go you won't be disappointed.

We spent 7days at this all over fine hotel ! Excellent service from always smiling staff(special thanks to Nirmal in the executive lounge, very attentive&he made us feel at home!) breakfast was perfect,trader's Vic Overall a good experience as well as the buffet at Mawasem !Spacious room and bathroom on 18th floor: beautiful half seaside/corniche view !
Visit to the souk WAQIF is also recommended, as is the hop on and hop off tour bus so one can see the whole of Doha center , and decide afterwards what you want to visit more profound!
We would recommend this hotel to others !!

Room Tip: The executive on a higher floor : quieter and sunny ! Spacious ! Lounge all included!

A very “basic” Hilton. The room was compact, but comfortable enough, with plenty of storage. Beautiful view of the bay. The bathroom was the best feature – nicely designed and spacious. Staff are attentive and friendly. Very good breakfast, but we had no other meals at the hotel. It seems to be a popular hang-out with ex-pats, as the bars were crowded in the evening (actually, quite noisy on Thursday night, we could hear the music and banter from our room on the eighth floor until well past midnight, but that did not bother us at all). It was really windy, so we did not use the pool area/beach, which actually looked very nice. If asked whether I would recommend it, I could not fault the property per se and, yes, it is a good choice if you want to stay in West Bay. Personally, if am ever in Doha again, I will certainly stay downtown (the one area of the city I found worth visiting).

My wife and I spent 10 days in November 2013 at this fine hotel. We had an executive level accommodation on 16. Floor with sea view and looking down on the hotel's private beach and pool area. Except for a few days with unexpected rain storms the whole stay in this hotel was a memorable experience. All restaurants held a high quality level - Mawasem for fine breakfasts, Traders Vic's for lunches and casual dinners and La Santaine for fine, French cuisine! Only (slight) complaint might be that over a period of 10 days we would have enjoyed at least some variations in the breakfast buffet selections! What will be particularly remembered from this hotel is the high and smiling service level everywhere. This was particularly experienced in the Executive Lounge on 22. Floor. We never visited a Hilton Executive Lounge anywhere with an overall quality like this! The only place where we might have liked to experience better management planning and action was in the pool and beach area when reorganizing and tidying up after the rain storms - but after all - this was an unexpected and unusual situation for all involved ....
We recommend this hotel!

I took a panoramic view suite At very good prepaid deal. The view was amazing. You see both the cornich and the west bay where the pearl island is located. The staff was extremely nice and they arranged for me car for couple of hours on tour around Doha. Love it.
