Since this is first trip for me to Qatar I had difficulties to choose hotel. Also I am visited Qatar for part inspection in workshop that located 90kms from Doha center which ha allowing me to select any hotels regardless of its location. I have been noticed quite late to make hotel arrangement. Anyhow as usual I have checked in website for quick reference. And I found one hotel that been rated very high and it was located near souq waqif which is traditional market. I know about Souq Waqif and I like traditional market thus I have selected this hotel accordingly
Due to unforeseen problem air plan was cancelled then I was forced to book in early flight at about 4:00am I have reached hotel where I found reservation made ready and it took several minutes to check in. I was extremely exhausted and I had to wake up early for inspection. Unfortunately room was allocated nearby main street and windows were not insulated and I have difficulties to sleep. I have requested Reception to change room but they could not find any room available in this hotel nor near hotel ( same series). I was completely pest off because I went through hassle that day and I could not find quiet place to sleep. I was extremely disappointed to select this hotel and I was not aware of this noise issue. Anyhow I was offered next day with very nice big room.
Apart of above issue Al Mirqab Boutique Hotel ( 5 Star ) is excellent hotel Unfortunately I was so busy that I could not say much longer in hotel during my visit to Doha . Staff was so welcomed and warm. Although checking in was very easy. I stayed in Hotel for 2 night I should stayed for three nights.
Reception or entrance was so charming and frankly was showing as 5 stars hotel. I was so impressed with entrance decoration and traditional decor
New Room size was big enough for two person . it has setting room with big sofas but its view was not good at all. Two TV screens were very big and nice. Bed was king size and very comfortable. Also bath was very big and stylish and clean. All necessary bath Accessories ( Amoug) were available it is my favor perfume . I like so much carpet it was very beautiful
Breakfast was normal and acceptable but it was very limited menu. It was not attractive at all. In general breakfast was not up to 5 stars hotel standard even for omelet for extra charge!!!!
This hotel was really located in almost main area of Doha and it is heart of most famous traditional big market SOUQ WAQIF . It is very close and airport. It is very near public transportation. It is also close to several fast food restaurant and inside SOUQ Waqif several excellent restaurant. In general every things nearby to this hotel.
In conclusion this is excellent hotel for tourist cares about tradition and will like to live true middle east historical era and go back to Past Aroma
