I had booked a suite room which was said to be suitable for 2 adults and a child. I was travelling with just my father and so sent a message in advance requesting twin beds instead of the one large and extra single on the side. When we arrived the reception staff kept asking if I had a child and if my dad was my dad? Not sure what they were implying here.
When we got to the room we saw they had set up a child's folding bed in the small lounging area of the 'suite' which led to the main bedroom. Despite the lack of space this created, it was a cosy room with nice decor and very comfortable.
The bathroom was also very big with a huge corner bath of the whirlpool/jacuzzi type. The shower was however awkwardly placed because the back of the bath had a wide border and therefore meant you couldn't stand directly under the shower head unless you half leaned on the wall. But unless they change the bath, which was really very nice, it's not an easy fix.
The location (although surrounded by dust and sand and some building work), was within walking distance of the local souqs, the masjid and the corniche.
I was also able to request an iron and ironing board from the desk too but these turned up in somewhat unexpected condition. The board having no cover (I used one of the towels from the bathroom for this) and the iron being partially broken.
The buffet style breakfast provided was very hearty and contained a huge selection of options from the very healthy to the very filling - catering to all tastes.
I enjoyed my time in Doha and this hotel was not a bad choice. I would say that they can improve on a couple of matters such as the preparation for their guests rooms before their arrival, the manner in which they address their guests (should always be of a high standard) and then the equipment being in a better state.
Anyway, other than the above smallish issues it was still a good hotel for the price.
Overall I would say it was a high 3* if not a 4* hotel.
