Adelaide, Australia
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Qatar Airways accommodated us at this hotel due to a changed flight to Adelaide. The room was large and well appointed but showed some signs wear and tear and the air conditioning temperature was a little difficult to adjust. Meals were excellent and the staff obliging.

The staff was friendly and it was clean as can be. When I was there, there was a brief but powerful rainstorm which caused leaks and flooding in the lobby. The room was the type of comfortable business class you'd expect.

I very much enjoyed my short business stay in the hotel. The room was spacious & quiet, I slept amazingly well. Special thanks to Mr.Farhan & the rest of the team to get my personally valuable items I had forgotten in my room after check-out back to me; your attention to the last details I very much appreciated!

Because of a long lay-over I got this hotel room courtesy of Qatar Airways. The lobby at 3.00 am was inviting, but the room showed some defects. The curtains couldn't be moved, the air conditioning stayed at 17 degrees despite all efforts, the bath/shower connection didn't work, the water was lukewarm. But the room was VERY big. The staff were...

We had this hotel as apart of our layover from Qatar airways. The rooms were comfortable. The meals were good. The staff were more than helpful.

My flight arrived early and the hotel front desk was able to accommodate an early check in with no additional fee... Super helpful after traveling for almost 24 hours. All I was a shower and a nap!!! The rooms were standard and contained everything you need. Great price for a good hotel.

I used to stay in this hotel everytime I have to travel to Doha for business. The position of the hotel (westbay), the kindness of its staff and the cost/quality ratio make this hotel one of the best choice in town. Strong recommended!

I had chosen this place as part of a bundled airfare+hotel package. The rates were reasonable. Saw some negative reviews regarding the condition of the rooms that had me a bit worried, but was pleasantly surprised as it seemed like it was recently updated.
