The front-desk staff and all those working on the main floor are very helpful, friendly, and efficient, although their English is not always perfect (as a previous reviewer noted), but they speak much better English than I speak Arabic--I commend them for doing their work well. Breakfasts are plentiful, with wide variety, and high quality. Everything on the main floor worked well, with one problem perhaps or perhaps not their fault: I could not charge the tours they arranged to my credit card but had to pay cash. The rooms are tired with peeling wallpaper and cracking plaster. The carpet desperately needed cleaning, the vacuuming needs attention, and the cleaners need to do one last check to be sure the bathroom is clean and stocked with towel, washcloth (there was one only on the first day, and despite requests I could not get another one), soap, and shampoo. I found the a-c touchy to operate and the internet service at times sporadic; again that may not be the hotel's fault. Overall, fine--but aging and needs attention.

Met by the hotel greeter at the airport, short limo ride to the hotel, an excellent welcome on arrival by the excellent staff. Ideal facilities, really good food and handy location - what more do you want?
Here for 2 weeks working and the hotel is perfect. Breakfast at 6am has plenty of choice and fast service, ready for work at 6.30. Lunch at 12.30 is buffet style, very high quality, wide variety on offer. Housekeeping been in to clean the room to a high standard - large room with sea views and on my package free wifi in the room and public areas. Decent gym and pool for the afternoon unwind. Dinner in the evening is buffet or menu - again excellent. The friendliest staff, always plenty of them around. Long but nice walk to the Corniche - and if you like walking - Center Mall, Katara VIllage, and the Waqif Souk all manageable - at least now in Feb when it's not too hot. Otherwise an easy taxi ride.
Don't know the price - arranged by Qatar Government for my work trip, but given it's popularity and range of guests from business types to tourists and some locals - probably not outrageous by Qatar standards.
If back in Doha - would happily use this hotel again. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the lift shafts - the lift bell are audible from nearby rooms during the night.

It is another luxurious 5 stars hotel in Qatar, located in Dafna area the new downtown of the city of Doha, about 30 minutes drive from airport, clean, comfortable, huge room space and NO smoking hotel. Food is excellent, good service, recommended for business.

The lobby is nicely designed and very welcoming with tea, dates and fresh beverages offered while checking in.
Room/bathroom clean and well stocked with everything you need.
Fair sea view. Affordable mini-bar items.
Good room service with a diverse choice on the menu (pricey though). There is a separate menu for freshly baked pizza which is both delicious and a bargain (14QAR - 3€)
Breakfast buffet ok and is the same offering you usually get in this price range.

Only con is the 50QAR (10€) charge for 24h internet. In this day and age hotels need to realize that internet access is an essential commodity, especially in places that have a large number of business oriented guests.
