We were allocated this hotel by Qatar Airways for our stay over before catching a connecting flight. What a great surprise: A beautiful hotel fully deserving of its 5 stars, with charming and helpful staff epitomised by the attentive service of Mohammed, the restaurant manager, who appeared to take great pleasure in ensuring our happiness and comfort. The buffett was superb with local dishes and desserts contributing to an exotic taste experience. Although this stay was serendipitous, our glimpse of Doha and our excellent hotel experience has motivated us to make an effort on our next trip to spend a few days exploring Doha which we would definitely do from the comfort of this hotel.

Room Tip: High up room: quieter , better view

Stayed here for about 8 hours while waiting for my next plane. Had a good short sleep, room service was excellent with delicious and affordable food. Room was clean , although think that all hotels should have tiles instead of carpets (better hygiene)

They should only improve on the transfers from and to the airport, this should be done much faster.

Pretty fast check-in, very friendly and helpful staff, nice airconditioned room it's all what we expected and what we experienced in his hotel. A side-lamp with a defect was repaired within a quarter of an hour. The sandwiches, served with almost perfect French fries, we ordered in room-service gave us very nice and plenty of food for a very affordable price (20 QR). The free shuttle from and to the airport, makes the positive list complete. Really almost perfect experience, maybe if we could have stayed longer, I would need to give an "excellent" quote.

Room Tip: We were in 1059, nice 2 bedded room with a nice view.

I stayed here for 1 night after missed connection flight and qatar airways offered this hotel for one night. Nice hotel, comfortable rooms but the shower room quite tide. The hotel is located closed to City center, and 15 minutes from the airport.  Staffs are nice especially from the conceige desk, they are very helpful and tried to coordinated with qatar airways to find my luggage. The room was good . The bathroom amenities provided shower gel, shampoo , conditioner, moisturizer cream and cotton bud.

The dinner and breakfast were excellent.
The hotel offered Free wifi only in lobby. Please consider to offer free wifi in room as this basic need for the guests who missed the flight like me as initial planned changed so had to emails to informed all concern.

Thank you very much for giving time to write your comments following your recent stay at Retaj Al Rayyan Hotel.

Yes, the Hotel is closed to the City Center and Airport is just 15-minute drive. I wish you had also visited Souq Waqif which is not far from the Hotel.

I am glad to know that you are happy with our food, staff, and services. We aim to meet our guests expectation and beyond.

We value your suggestion and we will tackle it during our next meeting.

To start on a positive note Let me highlight thet the Hotel is located on the heart of the diplomatic district, which is a quiet area of Doha, with few amenities within close walking distance of the hotel (Including City Center Mall).

The service received from the staff was excellent; they were proactive, customer service oriented and they had a great attitude… efficient, pleasant and always serving you with a smile.

During my stay… the management due to the high occupancy during the days of my visit dedicated a separate restaurant (Mezzanine level) to assure Good quality and avoid delays in the service… The breakfast experience all in all was OK, there was a good selection of food and a decent quality.

The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the room and bathroom (Except Shower) were of a good size. The bed was comfortable and the minibar was had a good selection and reasonably priced. So I would definitely consider this hotel as an option for any future trips.

There were few items on the negative side…
1. The size of the shower (Not up to the standards of 4-5 start hotels in this region nowadays)
2. The Cable TV selection was mostly in Arabic, very few English channels.
3. There was No instruction for the A/C Thermostat, so I had to spend some time trying to set the room at a confortable temperature as it was set way below comfortable standards.

All in all a good experience and it will be part of the options to be consider in any future trip to Doha.

Room Tip: I would recommend Ocen view...
