Stayed in a Retaj one bedroom suite with kitchenette for 6 weeks whilst working in Doha. Good service, free wifi in room, and value for money. Staff were excellent and most helpful. Not glitzy but comfortable when working away from home Will definitely stay again on next visit.

Excellent service, ATIR at the reception very polite and courteous. Excellent customer service. Overall experience very satisfying. Meals very delicious, very big selection way too much to eat or even try. This hotel will not let you down when it comes to luxury and customer service. I WILL HAVE NO SECONDS THOUGHTS IN STAYING HERE AGAIN. Enjoy your stay too

I stayed here as I had a long layover in Doha and was put up here by Qatar Airways. I got a twin room which was quite spacious and had a sea view. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. I also had 2 meals at the hotel buffet and there were enough options to choose from. The food... More

I've stayed at the Retaj Al Rayyan a number of times over the past few years, and I'm not sure why, maybe less investment, or care, but this will probably be my last stay. Whole host of small but annoying issues: I waited 30 minutes for someone to bring my bag up, so I had to go back down to... More

Qatar Air put us up at this hotel due to cancelled flight. Dirty bathroom. Mucked up our room; had to move. Negative reception staff. A couple of the staff are actually really grumpy. One told me to "please hurry up"!!! In house food was okay- big courses but nothing fancy. Would never stay here again but it was ok for... More

Hotel is just 10 minutes walk away from CityCenter Mall, however not during Summer! Upgraded to a Seaview - room is big & comfort room as well. One distinct about this hotel is - all employees are Muslim. Even the waitresses are wearing stylish Abayas. And the men -Indian-like suit. However, Lobby is heavily-decorated, could have been minimized! Hotel is... More

I stayed here for 1 day during a stopover. This was provided by Qatar as they must have an arrangement with the hotel. The rooms were nice, beds were very compy and the views are great. The staff were all very friendly and the food options are large. Would recommend

Great hotel for a transit in Doha, with good room, friendly employees and generous breakfast buffet. Can't comment on pricing though, as this was a complementary transit arrangment thanks to Qatar Airways.

I stayed for 6 hours only, but the hotel is new and has some rooms very comfortable, including the bed. During the night, they only serves buggers and sandwiches, so I hope you don't feel hungry. Didn't have chance to try the breakfast.
