Reviewed April 17, 2013

honestly we did not trust the hotel open check-in, but later we came to came to know that it's really good comparing to how much we pay. the restaurant is not big but good choices of food and all the staff was good. small comments no entertainer in the hotel.

Staying in a city so awash with money and conspicuously opulent living - it is suprising how dowdy and dull this hotel is. The advantage is that it is therefore more reasonably priced than its more luxurious neighbours - but I certainly wouldn't stay here on a personal trip. The whole place - even the supposedly non-smoking areas - are so redolent of tobacco smoke that it clings to your clothing.

...like in many modern hotels of this kind the windows are airtight locked and the aircondition could not be turned off, so instead of enjoing nice weather outside, I was freezing at night inhailing my own tobacco smoke. (These hotels make you consider quitting). Located pretty far from the main attractions, but close enough to downtown. Food was excellent, service very good, rooms spacious, clean and proper.

Room Tip: Rooms facing waterfront are obviously better

The rooms are large and clean, the breakfast and evening buffet are lavishing, the location is convenient since taxi is anyway extremely cheap in Doha. There is no bar, but one can cross the street to Hilton and have a beer on the beach terrace, or walk for ten minutes to Marriot, near the shopping mall (the bar over there is cheaper, but the view is absent). The pool is rather small (its wider side is some 10 meters long), but it seems that it is never crowd. It is located at the first floor, and it is partially covered, such as to avoid the direct exposure to sunlight. The Internet in the room costs 50 Real (a little more than 10 Euro), and it is not very fast, but it is not slow either. A business facility is located in the first floor, and allows printing jobs. There is also a gym, which seemed to be open only for men. One may hear noise through the walls, coming from the neighbors...

Room Tip: If choosing a room with see view, do not expect the view to be fantastic, but it is good to have it...

I will recommend this hotel to all friends who would be visiting Doha in the near future. The islamic consept I like it sooo much , the best thing when I saw my friend Mr. Mohsen there it was a fantastic moment to my wife too , we used to see him in four seasons in Egypt .. good luck for him , other side the Staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable about their products.
Starting with the moment i called the Director of Sales and Marketing, who assisted with my booking, all the way to my check-out, i had a great experience and my expectations were exceeded on many occasions. I will absolutely return, and can't wait to bring my whole Family along.

The welcoming sunshine in Qatar provides an opportunity to not only let the hotel guests in to rest in cosy rooms, but also to lend cheers to the guests via friendly hotel staff.

I've stayed in Room 610, which is spacious and clean. I think there could be rooms facing Persian Gulf with a more magnificent view.

Food served at breakfast buffet as well as lunch was superb.

I have stayed in Retaj Al-Rayyan 3 times during the past year. The hotel is very good. Location is good. Within 7-10 minutes walking distance to City Centre Mall. Rooms are very good and clean. I always ask for a room facing the gulf to enjoy the scene every morning. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast cannot be missed. Everything you could imagine is there from oriental to continental. The hotel is my preferred choice in Qatar.

Room Tip: Ask for a room directly facing the gulf.
