A really lovely hotel both accommodation and the staff/service. I really could not fault this place... ideally situated at the end of West Bay so handy for going along to the bay or the other way to the Pearl. Hop on hop off bus (which I used in so many cities) pulls up across the road. The rooms are magnificent - I paid only £6 a night more for an executive room which was enormous and had the added benefits of sea view, complimentary buffet breakfast (great choices), access to executive lounge and free transfers to and from the airport. The one thing I think this hotel misses is that it does not serve any alcohol and because I enjoy a glass of wine with my meal I only ate dinner once in the hotel - nearby Marriott does serve and they scored with my dinner reservations! One worth thinking on Movenpick as I have stayed at several of your hotels in Jordan and wine was not a problem! Oh lovely pool area as well - think it was out of season when I was there as it was so quiet, but I was not complaining.. the pool is indoor on the 26th floor.

Whilst travelling to Thailand from Birmingham on Qatar Airways we used the Discover Qatar stopover offer, which meant for about £25 we could stay at a hotel and spend a few hours at Doha. This was a really good idea, it broke the flight journey up in half and we got to see Doha. We chose this hotel and it was superb, the staff were so accommodating, the lady on the desk changed our room for a sea view and it was lovely and spacious for the three of us. We got an Uber to the market area which only took about 10-15 mins and didn’t cost much, had a look around and then came back to the hotel whereby just a few doors down was a Starbucks and a burger place so we picked up a snack and went back to the room and got some sleep, then at 6am we got the airport shuttle bus which the reception had arranged for us the night before. Could not fault the hotel and would recommend. Special shout out to the reception Lady, sadly can’t remember her name, but she was so helpful.

Quarantined in the hotel for 7 days and can not complain on the room as such, since I was not able to use the facilities anyway. The room was big and spaceous, internet worked well so I could both stream video and work during my stay.

View was fair, was facing a construction site, but has the water at an angle and was on a high floor.

The lack of variety of the food was not so nice, I chose meat or veg the first day and whilst the food was okay, it was clear that it was from a "quarantine menu" meaning bulk cooking for everyone. I would have enjoyed being able to choose type of cuisine as in other quarantine hotels, instead of veg/non-veg only.

Coffee was the instant type, Nescafe bags. Would have wished for better coffee and tea option.

I don’t usually write reviews during hotel stays. It’s usually because It’s absolutely amazing or absolutely terrible, this seems to be the lesser.

Arriving back to Doha I was provided accommodation at the movenpick. Upon arrival at around 1am reception staff were friendly and welcoming. I arrived in my room it was clean and tidy. That seems to be where the food stopped.

The first morning I received my breakfast which was cold has been cooked hours prior. I couldn’t eat it. Chicken breast as it was called was provided for lunch. I have never in my life seen something look so disgusting and unappetising. I thought maybe it had just been a bad day so I proceeded to let time run it’s course. At no point did the food improve.

During this period I did not have house keeping at my door. Strange considering the professional attitude at my previous quarantine hotel, staff checked daily if anything was required. Nothing here eventually I called and asked if I could have my bed sheets changed. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. When house keeping arrived I wasn’t politely greeted bed sheets were placed on the chair and I was told to put the dirty sheets and towels in this bag. Came across as very rude. At the previous quarantine my bed sheets were changed by staff on 4 occasions in a 2 week period.

Another thing I didn’t like was the fridge in the room was empty. Previous quarantine the mini bar was full off juice biscuits Pepsi etc. Daily they would call to ask if you required it refilled. Nothing here I had 12 bottles of water in my room upon arrival. At no point since has anyone taken me more or asked if I needed.

Overall not enjoyable no real communication from staff to guest, quite shocking actually as I looked forward to my arrival when I knew this would be my quarantine hotel. Most certainly will avoid in the future.

Spent 3 nights at hotel prior to departure from country.

Hotel is well located for access to nearby City Center mall and the Corniche which is a great place to walk and view the city skyline in the cooler winter months.

The hotel is comfortable, food served at buffets not exceptional, and pricey for services such as laundry.

Good for a night or two.

Had a room with a great view of the bay. Room was quiet, good size and king bed. The staff was excellent, very helpful and it was fun to carry on a conversation with the front desk. Good location and their Buffet was outstanding. The have a grill where you can order fresh fish, steaks, pasta depending on what night it was. In fact, some of the best steak I have had was from their grill. The offer a free shuttle to the airport/hotel but it only runs once per hour. I would definitely stay there again.

Satisfying stay. Rooms have a enough space. Stayed in a seaview room which is very relaxing especially in the pool area, Pool was small. Enough for kids fun, what i have notice is the pool area was high clorine smell maybe because its an indoor pool. Breakfast and Dinner was great for our family, the restaurant crew are all responsive and helpful accomodating. Foods are great not very common in some other buffet restaurant. And I would like to thabks all the staff namely Kazi, Siena, Jeceille, Kriz, Resart and all the Vallet Parking Staff... Hope to see you again.

Spacious room and upgraded to a sea view room was even better. The hotel has all the amenities necessary to make it a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The gym is ample and has the latest equipment and is very clean and tidy. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a free shuttle transfer from the airport and vice versa. Let the staff know as its every hour at least. Chocolate hour daily between 5-6pm is a great innovation.

I have had the unexpected misfortune of staying at this hotel during my quarantine. I’m sure as a hotel it’s fine, but do not spend any time there for quarantine. Pick a different hotel…
First of all, you have no choice of what to eat. It doesn’t matter if you’re allergic to anything or if you’re gluten intolerant. There is just no choice.
The food comes without a courtesy knock so you’ll probably end up having cold food after Check your door every 30 min.
In other hotels I’ve visited, you have an option between 2 meals and a 30 min time slot where they will deliver the food. Makes it super easy.

The only comfort I got from this hotel was the warm welcome by the security and the night watchman.
It’s best you pick another hotel……

An excellent five-star hotel with a huge room and kitchenette. The spa and swimming pool are marvellous.
I like the position of the hotel which is in walking distance from the seaside. Also, there is a shopping mall in the vicinity.
The buffet dinner was excellent- assorted meat dishes, vegetables, many salads, and a great fruit and sweets selection. You can find international and local dishes as well

Hi, I think hubby and I had a family room - a large double bed, and a single. (Huge.) Therefore, not eligible to use an executive lounge. We were impressed with their buffet in the ForKnife restaurant. Tea/coffee facilities in the room. For snacks etc. we bought stuff from the mini supermarket next door to hotel. There is a coffee shop next door too. But hotel has its own coffee shops etc.

Hi, there is a cafe inside the hotel & a few food places outside the hotel within walking distance. There is also a mall which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. For museums & other attractions you will need to take a taxi. Hope this answers your question. 😁

Where do I catch the free Movenpick Airport shuttle from Doha airport? How often does it run?
Answer from bob1323
Swansea423 contributions332 helpful votes
Just email the hotel before and they will make sure the guy is there for you to show you to the shuttle when it arrives every hour... they are very good.. I took ages getting through customs so the shuttle for me and another guest had just left - as it was going to be a while the Movenpick rep put us in a taxi and the hotel picked up the bill.
