I booked this hotel because ICH group sent an e-mail introducing this new hotel in Doha.
When I checked in I was informed that the hotel had a “soft opening” and that some of the outlets were not open. I was given an excellent room with a panoramic view of the West Bay district. The bathroom was bigger than a normal hotel room and was beautifully appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and amenities in the room excellent.
The outlets that were open were of very high standard and quite reasonably priced, the breakfast buffet was very good indeed. Staff were attentive - just a little intrusive at times but this was due to them training and being very eager to please.
One small negative point is the location and access. The hotel is very conveniently and centrally located but is hidden from view from the main roads. As a result taxi’s are few and visitors found the hotel hard to find. I’m sure the hotel management will resolve this quickly with better signage and liaison with taxi companies.
I have no doubt that this will be an excellent hotel, perhaps one of the best in Doha when fully up and running. Even now it’s very good and I will certainly stay there again.
