Holiday Villa Hotel & Residence City Centre
Ranked #59 of 137 Hotels in Doha
Reviewed November 22, 2012

This hotel is centrally located in Doha downtown area not far from the airport, rooms are spacious and the free Internet is essential for business travelers. Breakfast is acceptable, it has a good gym and the swimming pool size is very nice to do laps however, the water is not heated so in the winter months it gets really cold for swimmers. Overall, good value for money!

It's a bit far from the Corniche, or the glistening new business center. Came here for a conference, and the place was buzzing even close to midnight, apparently a popular place. Check in was perfunctory, serviced by a Malaysian and Filipino staff. The 11-story atrium is impressive, and the elevators whisk you away to your room while having a view of the core of this large hotel. The room is spacious, with large glass windows, huge LCD TV, coffee and tea facilities, and a smallish bathroom, where the door opens directly to the toilet bowl! No bathtub, but the shower stall has good pressure. The beds are OK, was able to get good sleep. Breakfast buffet was adequate, although there wasn't much choice, but the kitchen staff strive to provide some variety every morning. Staff are friendly, but don't expect "authentic" Qatari hospitality, because all the hotel staff are foreign! This, i suspect, is the same in most other hotels here. Hail a taxi if you want to go to the Corniche and Souq Waqif, two of the best places to go to in the city. This will cost around 10 riyals. Make sure the driver uses the meter! For groceries and cheap food, the nearby Al Meera supermarket is around 10 minutes walk to the north.

nice and quiet hotel compound. i wonder what they do with all the other buildings. there was no porter service offered which suited me just fine as i live in town and just wanted to treat myself so i brought and overnight bag. my friends and i normally just eat at the hotpot restaurant in building 7.

it was my first time to stay overnight there and the room i had was small and neat. the bed and everything else was fine but i noticed the tub had stains on it so i didn't soak in the tub as i intended to and just had a shower. the bed was pretty weird too as they were twin beds put together (instead of a double bed) so i couldn't sleep in the middle because of the gap.

location was not very convenient but it is a good thing that they had a convenience store in the basement, although you need to buy some items in bulk. i simply wanted to get a can of coke but was told that i needed to buy the six pack.

one of the good things about the hotel are the restaurants withing the compound. the malaysian dinner i had on my overnight stay was good and i totally overate on the buffet breakfast. loved their french toast.

staff were pretty nice and i was given a complimentary late checkout of 3pm. the receptionist on duty only gave me a 2pm checkout when i requested for it during checkin but when i asked again (another person this time) the next day i was given another hour. no wifi in the room though. there is free wifi available according to a poster at reception but you'd need to go to building 6. service was good and i was given every request i asked of the housekeeping staff promptly.

Had stayed at Holiday Villa for 2 nights while in Doha on work related visit. The rooms were neat, well furnished with all amenities.
The hotel lobby and sorroundings were well kept & furnished.
Service was professional with staff well versed in English.
The buffet breakfast in the restaurant was the best breakfast I have had this year till date. The variety was something I have not seen anywhere. Apart from the number of items, the quality was awesome. Everything from honey, butter, pasteries to the chicken tasted so fresh.

I have decided to make this place my stay of choice on future trips to Muntazah.

A comfortable and value for money stay is assured at the Holiday Villa.

Conveniently placed close the airport makes it easy to get in and out of Qatar for those who are short on time.

Possibly the only drawbacks are limited choices of food for the room service menu, no wi-fi in the rooms and limited equipment in the gym.

Other than that the staff is friendly and welcoming. It is a good value for money "manja" hotel.

Room Tip: Book taxi's in advance as Doha is a very busy city and the hotel doesn't attract too many av...

Yes this is outside the city, but easy access either walking or taxi. It would be tempting to stay the whole trip in holet as everything is here, pool, spa, restaurants, plus great service and very friendly staff.
The only slight negative is the smoking areas do infringe on the non smokers.

Its like a city of its own with several buildings as a part of the hotel. The staff is extremely polite and helpful, reminding the guest of the far eastern hospitality.

If travelling as a couple, book a honeymoon package as the room looks beautiful as you walk into rose petals and swan shaped towels - it can be a good surprise for the spouse, even if you are an old married couple. The honeymoon package includes romantic candle-lit fine dining.


Excellent for business stay as the beddings are comfortable, specially for jet-lagged guests!
There are several meeting rooms and conference halls, catered by very helpful staff. If having early morning meetings at the board rooms, it is better to prepare the room a night before, check the LCD projector, organise the lobby postings and inform about the timings, as some banquet staff reaches the hotel at 8 am. The service staff is however present early morning to cater to any last minute changes

If you love far-eastern food, you will enjoy the food variety at the restaurants. Room service menu is extensive as well, but it is better if you can talk to the chef directly to explain what you would like to be added to the food as the person taking your order may not understand your accent!

Spa is nice; the natural facial treatment is highly recommended. You have to pay extra to use the jacuzzi and saunas, if not availing the massage facilities.

If you have any issues, talk to Dita, Rona or Siham in sales as they are extremely helpful in solving any problems.

I have stayed there several times for my business trips and find it quite comfortable.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are spacious!
