Stayed here at the courtesy of Qatar Airways on economy class as we had an involuntary 20-hour layover in the city. Arrived at 6am in the morning at Doha airport, was given the hotel voucher, went through immigration and approached the hotel desk right outside customs. The rep said that the shuttle would leave in 15 minutes. True enough, after we changed money, didn't have to wait too long to board the shuttle to get to the hotel. There were three parties of 6 people on the shuttle. Once we got to the hotel, we had access to our room on the first floor right away. The room itself and the bathroom were huge and spacious. Again thanks to the Qatar Airways Stopover Program, all meals were taken care of. They serve buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner (which would normally cost QR82, QR150 and QR150 respectively). There was a huge variety, and if you like Arabic food, you would definitely enjoy it. The hotel was functional. There is a decent gym though we were too tired to use, and an outdoor-ish pool. (There was even a jar of mint lemonade for guests to help themselves with in the gym.) Though a bit far from Islamic Art Museum and Corniche, we managed to find a taxi on the street to take us there at 2pm. Spent the afternoon in the area and at the Souk before walking all the way back to the hotel (which took around 80 minutes - we figured it was impossible to get a taxi from the Souk anyway, and managed to see the skyline at nighttime of the downtown business area). The Reception kept giving us different answers as to what time we would leave for the airport, but anyway, we checked out at 11pm, and left on shuttle at 11:20pm for our 1:55am flight. There were again three parties of 6 people on the shuttle back to the airport.

I stayed at this hotel courtesy Qatar Airways as I had a 20 hour stop-over at Doha from Oslo enroute to Kolkata. This hotel served wonderful buffet spread of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The striking feature of this hotel was their service. I was unable to connect my laptop to the hotel's Wi-Fi facility and this gentleman from IT deptt Mr. Gulal spent nearly 30 mins (which included speaking to the ISP operator) to get the connection working. I have seen the IT deptt of other hotels all over the world and none can match upto the level of sincerity as Mr. Gulal!!
He was courteous and soft spoken - not at all irritated at how his & my cell phone could connect to the Wi-fi and yet my laptop failed to do so!!! Any other person in his shoes would have plainly told me that its a laptop problem. But he sat through and ensured that it worked!!
Even their prompt tele-call wakeup for airport drop in noteworthy!!
The entire hotel's staff was very very chilled out and ever-helping!!!
I will definitely come back to this hotel if I ever travel to Doha again!!

We recently returned from U.S.A. We flew with Qater Airways, on the way home we had a 12.30 stop ovwe in Doha, because of this we were put up in a hotel over night. Being an ecconmy class passenger we expected a 3 star hotel.What a pleasent suprise we had it was a suite with all the trimmings. I do not know the cost but would guess it was very expensive. We were told the mini bar was complmentry stark horry only cool drinks!!!

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.
