5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Tucked away near the city centre you will find the hotel, it really is a great hotel to stay.
They have a fantastic bar and restaurant on the 55th floor with amazing views. The rooms are good, you have to try the gym and pool.
What makes this hotel is the staff! They are very very good.

Bassem on front desk summed up the team attitide ...can do, with a smile, an email from the manager after the stay, and a friendly but not over-bearing concern that they earn the best business hotel title against increasingly stiff local competition. Well on the way in my view.

Clearly a property focused on service, I stayed in a very nice and spacious room with great views. The staff did an excellent job and in one case really did an extra favor to help me out. I would happily stay here again and will recommend it to my colleagues.

Room Tip: Consider the executive club rooms for the best views.

The check in was extremely slow. We had a club room which was very comfortable and roomy, certainly a good choice, however the lifts were slow. Needed to take three lifts to get to the restaurant on the 55th floor. We gave up waiting and went to Prime Rib on level 1. Overall, pretty disappointing for a hotel of this calibre. Would make a different choice on our next stay.

Room Tip: The club room was generous and comfortable

Please accept our apologies for the challenges finding the right elevators.

We stayed for 3 days in Doha on the way to Athens. The hotel is obviously quite new and well fitted out. We arrived early in the morning and found that we could not actually check in until 12 noon. We decide to pay to be allowed to "crash" in a room until ours was ready. A small price to pay but one be to be aware of.
Our room on the 35th floor provided stunning view of the city and was eminently comfortable and quiet. The hotel is very well located in the city of Doha and the staff are by en large very pleasant and helpful. The housekeeping needed a kick in the pants once but they quickly improved the service following a complaint. Hotel food offerings were good quality and reasonably priced.
The rooftop pool was pretty amazing and welcome !
All in all this is a great place to stay in Doha.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that doesn't directly face the morning sun and the higher the floor the better...

Just as you expect, Intercon claim to be superb and this hotel is. No point in writing down all the good things and there’s nothing bad or poor to be aware of. The airport is half an hour. Heroes bar full of sports TV. Strata bar superb. Excellent breakfast.

I was lucky to book this hotel. Having been in Doha before in other hotels that are not nearly as much as this one in standard. Everything was just perfect in this hotel. Staff was smiling and welcoming and extremely professional and always ready to help, it was obvious that the management of the hotel is doing a good job keeping good people there. From the check in to the check out. Was staying in club room with access to the club lounge and will give a thumb up for the good staff of intercontintental on the 45th floor (Karen and Co). The Strata bar was also good and the swimming pool was good and very clean. I will recommend this hotel to anyone anytime. It was just perfect. Keep up the good work.

best regards
Benedikt (Iceland)

Room Tip: Upgrade to the club room. you will not be dissapointed.
