Reviewed January 15, 2013

Have been more or less living in the hotel for 3 months. Beds are immensely comfortable, and all the staff are great. I find the decor a bit fussy! That's probably just me.

Choice of bars, from 'pub' like on the second floor with the balcony to the perhaps over-trendy alternatives lower down.

The pool is on the 2nd floor balcony, and a bit limited for any actual swimming, but looks nice!

The food is good quality, but if you are a vegetarian, expect to go somewhere else to eat. Luckily there are other places within walking distance at other hotels.

Room Tip: Watch out for the building noise this month, get a room at the front where you won'tbhearnit

We traveled to this hotel in December 2012. On arriving late in the evening we were greeted by friendly and attentive staff who gave us a refreshing drink while they checked us in. The hotel's public areas are beautiful and always smelled absolutely delicious with flowers and scented candles everywhere. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Our room was lovely and comfortable and the bed was very very comfy! There was good choice of signature restaurants and we tried to eat somewhere different every evening. Our Favorited was the Spice Market which was fabulous.The food was spot on, very high quality and utterly delicious,very attentive service and wide selection of wine.The breakfast at the Market was very good as well with amazing wide selection starting with Arabic dishes to freshly made crepes.

Room Tip: Choose room on high level.

We decided to stop over at the W Doha for a break on our return from Australlia just to have a break from the long flight.
The hotel does have the WOW factor as you walk into the lobby, the staff are very polite and friendly, the rooms are clean, comfortable and have all your amenities.
We just didn't get the feel for the place, everything was ok, we had to change rooms on arrival as the construction noise outside was ridiculous, (we understand this is not the fault of the hotel), our coffee machine wouldn't work and on our 2nd day the TV remote decided to give up too, only little things that were addressed straight away but just added to us not getting the feel of this 5* hotel.
The hotel is great but we believe that you would be more comfortable here when on a business trip, not as a tourist.
We travel alot and stay in 5* hotels all around the world, this is a lovely hotel, just not for us.

Room Tip: The higher the better, construction noise everywhere! - No fault of the hotel, also of a weekend you...

We only stayed 1 night enroute to Nairobi in December 2012 and managed to sleep off the jet lag due to the super comfortable bed. The service was excellent and ambience hihgly relaxing. Will stay here again if I stay over in Doha next time.

There is not much to say. This is about my 4th or 5th stay in this fine establishment and as always, it was fantastic. From the time they pick you up from the airport until they drop you back off for your flight out, all I can say is, WOW!!

The great thing about this Hotel and it's Managers is this. They are always improving, always trying to get better and they LISTEN! If more Hotels would just listen to their patrons, they might do a little better.

I would like to personally thank a few personnel from the Hotel staff.

Mr. Chevasson (Hotel Manager) you run a fine establishment Sir, full of Professionals.
Sir please pass on my thanks to Mr.Can Erkay and Mrs. Nesrine Amara. They both were extremely helpful to myself and staff.

Anyone reading this review, and are thinking about passing up this Hotel, drop that idea, you won't find better in Doha.
