“An Excellent Luxury Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

A great spacious luxury Hotel. Rooms are so clean, service is instant, and the spa is a great place to relax. The best is the available in kitchen, fully equipped and does the purpose.
Sure will return.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We stayed at the Dunes Hotel in an apartment in January 2013.

Whilst it is not a 5 star hotel it is clean and affordable, giving very good accommodation with a kitchen, living room, (inc dining area), bedroom, ensuite and second WC. For the longer stay - this is ideal and takes the pressure off eating out or ordering food on room service.

It is a recently built hotel and therefore has new furnishings and fittings are new - which is nice. The Towels and linen are good quality as is the complimentary L'Occitane soaps

Parking is not valet and there are limited spots in the hotel grounds and I parked on the street a few times. However, the street is generally not busy, and parking spots are available.

We found the location to be great and it was generally in the centre for everything with good road access. It is also great for the 10 minute walk to City Centre Shopping Mall, which has a Carrefours Megamart and enough shops for everyone, including an open ice rink in the centre.

So in summary - the Dunes Hotel is a great place to stay if you dont want to pay top dollar but have the cook at home facilities and be reasonably accessible to everything.

On the downside the indoor swimming pool is a bit small and is not the place to relax on your day off.

Room Tip: There is a construction site on one of the Hotel, so ask to be located away from that side.

I stayed here for 2 weeks in October 2012 during a business trip to Qatar.

The hotel, although located in the busy West Bay area of Doha, is located in an extemely quiet location and a 10 minute walk to City Center Mall. The majority of more expensive hotels situated in Doha's West Bay are situated on the flight path to and from the nearby Doha International Airport, with aircraft taking off and landing at all hours.

Furniture, fitings and decor are plush and the bed very, very comfortable.

Hotel food was excellent and all staff were extremely polite and friendly, although Reception staff (Eastern European) appeared to be poorly trained in their job and had difficulty with the English language but I would not let this detract from my overall hotel rating.

Spa and pool facilities are excellent.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.

I stayed in this hotel two months, it just had opened. Did the reservation based on their site. Just to find out that the promised infrastructure was not yet completed. Staff very friendly, but severly undertrained for some things. Kitchen in appartment OK, but the choice of the washing machine a disaster, very complicated and unreliable. Internet quality in room OK, especially compared with some other Doha hotel experiences. Very limited gym. Did leave because owners decided to increase rate from one month to the next by literally a third.

I was very pleasantly surprised that the promise of the start up has continued until today! Very easy to criticise I feel, but again I was impressed with the nothing is too much attitude by the staff. Breakfast buffet was very nice with the best croissants around. My business trips are based around West Bay, and the hotel is right in the middle. Great TV chanel selection loads of sports channels!! I can say as a second timer: I'll be back again and again.
