Our transit time from Adelaide en route to Sofia was a few hours but we were informed a couple of weeks before travelling that the delay would be 10 hours. I checked to see if there was the equivalent of the transit hotel in Singapore but unfortunately there wasn't. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my husband and... More

Stayed here for one night, courtesy of Qatar airways. The rooms were relatively comfortable with modern amenities and a good view. That's about it. The location of the hotel is also very central. The dinner buffet was perhaps the most disappointing element and the service / staff attitude was well below what I would expect. All in all, a pretty... More

I have stayed a number of times at this hotel and it is in general a nice place. Good rooms with comfortable beds and pleasant layout. Staff is polite and helpful mostly. At this particular visit however, I noticed a few things. The attitude of the receptionist varied greately from the night one who was extremely polite and very helpful... More

I stayed here during transit through Qatar airways. The waiting time is so annoying that there is almost no use to stay in a stay. Visa processing takes one hour after reaching. Waiting for the bus means another half an hour. Transport time 40 mins. Once you check in and try to take some rest you get a wake up... More

this is not so much the hotel's fault as it is an impractical approach to short layovers by Qatar. Let me explain. An 8 hour layover will mean you get your room almost 3 hours after landing. this includes visa processing, waiting for the hotel bus, the 45 min journey to the hotel and a mass check in that the...

We are sad that generally positive and very good impression you have gained during your stay with us was hindered by your experience on the layover process at the airport. We look forward that your next visit will be processed quickly so you could get the rest you deserve. More

Qatar Airways put us here on a transit stop. We arrived about 1am and left the same day at 5pm but no trouble having the room for those hours. Check in was very easy after a comfortable trip in the hotel bus. The room was quite large with twin beds. The bathroom was perfect for our needs. As it was... More

Stayed during visit to Doha for a limited time.. Its a greater hotel in a decent location on the corniche - a short walk away from the Sheraton and its fabulous grounds and extremely entertaining 'Harp' bar. Just a small paddle pool on one of the floors. Seems like Business Hotel, or city Hotel. Great People with smiley faces around
