3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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

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.

This hotel s definitely NOT 4 star as Qatar airways claimed. Dirty carpets Dust on furniture Windows not cleaned The hotel as a whole has not been maintained to any acceptable standard . Qatar airways should be ashamed of themselves for sending people to this hotel

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.

I stayed in the hotel for three nights using the summer deal which was a great value for money (Kitchenette suite with breakfast and discount for F&B). The overall stay was good and the staff were friendly. The location of the hotel is one of the best in town and in a good quite spot. The main problem I faced... More

We were picked up & returned to the airport by the hotel mini bus. Very little waiting around. Lovely comfortable bedroom & shower. Breakfast involved a wide range of choices & food was of a high quality. Would recommend highly.

Stayed at Retaj Al Rayan Doha for one month. Being a family with three children, our expectations were extremely demanding. Thumbs up to Retaj Management for training all staff from Door entrance to room. Concierge, Reception , Security , House Keeping and Restaurant staff are well trained.
