Depending on traffic, allow 20-25 riyals.

But be aware there are not many taxis around the Ritz area when it comes to leaving the Ritz and venturing out you may have to use the Ritz "taxis" ..... very expensive, but then again if you are staying at the Ritz, this shouldn't be a problem :-)

Enjoy your time.

Gosh I hope it isnt going to be too expensive at the RC - its our 15th wedding anniversary treat. Is food and drink way above average prices?? If so what suggestiomns do people make for eating out elsewhere??

The Ritz Carlton is one of the better hotels in Doha. It is expensive to eat there compared to other places, but it's beautiful. Considering it's your anniversary, you are staying in a lovely place.

They do a very nice afternoon tea. Also the buffet is great value, but if you add alcohol it's expensive.

If you want cheaper restaurants, most of the malls have food courts and restaurants in them. You could try Eli France on the 3rd level on City Centre (your nearest shopping mall).

For a great cheap Arabic feed, you could go to Turkey Central on Al Maghab Street (near Doha clinic hospital).

But to be honest, it's your anniversary enjoy your special time at the Ritz. They have a beautiful pool area too.

Actually, have thought about it some more, best to allow 30 - 35 riyals for taxi fare. Make sure you use the light blue/green mettalic coloured taxis (Karwa) when leaving the airport.

Avoid the "limousine" toutes as they will charge you a lot more.
