“very comfortable and functional, excellent location, reasonable rate”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

I stopped for two nights. The room was like a huge apartment, very well decorated. The staff was very efficient and helpful and everything worked fine. They really help to make your stay easy and comfortable, even for hiring your transportation from and to the airport before your arrival and for getting the visa to get into Qatar. Also to arrange some some tours, they provide an excellent organization regarding that. The hotel is very well located, where most hotels are, surrounded by Doha's modern and impressive buildings, only two blocks aways from City Center, a shopping center that has cafes and restaurantes and from where you can get a taxi to go to some of the city main attractions, like the sokos and the city´s Art Museum. Besides the restaurant, which is ok though a little expensive, it has a sort of fancy and wonderful deli where you can buy or take pastries, cafes, teas, sandwiches and salads, also expensive but highly recomendable.

Room Tip: A lot of space, modern decoration, it has all it needs to have and more

Excellent hotel for families and long stay, I stayed there for 4 nights during new year the front desk was friendly and reservation department was excellent thank Mr. Mazan. You feel home when you enter the hotel, city center mall is close by 5 mins walk. Swimming pools are nice and I like the kids club.

Rated only 3 because I was expecting more. It should be 3.5 actually.
Upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite for a 2 nights stay instead of the 1 bedroom suite we booked. Not really helpful when you travel as a couple.

PROs:

Excellent service from the reservations department, thank you Mr. Warren.
Very spacious apartment, minimalist decor.
Very confy pillows.
3 Large screen LCDs.
Cool entrance to the restaurant through a mirror hidden door.
Good location, in the middle of the business district.

CONs:

Most of the finishing touches lack finesse. The kitchen, even if very well appointed looks disappointing. Same goes for the bathrooms (but you do get 3 of them throughout the apartment).
Too cold inside. Could not set the heating unit to work.
Exaggerated prices for room service beverages: about 17 EUR for a Corona beer and about 140 EUR for a 37CL Chivas.
Quite odd not to be able to order a normal taxi. You either have to use the limo service for about 3 times the cost of a normal cab (and is not always available anyway), or forced to walk to the City Center Mall for about 10 minutes and wait an additional 10 minutes more in queue there to get a taxi. Tip: search the internet for local limousine services and call directly, we ended up using Rez auto, a very friendly and reliable service.

This establishment should be a good choice for longer stays or if you are traveling as a larger family.

Things to do when you stay for a short time in Doha:
Visit Souk Waqif
Dine and shop at The Pearl Qatar - both jap and chinese restaurants as well as nice shops
Corniche strolling
Shop at The Gate (Al Salam) shopping center - close to Kempinski as well.

KempinskiDoha, General Manager at Kempinski Residences & Suites, Doha, responded to this review, December 22, 2011
Dear Mr. Volrath,

Thank you very much for your constructive feedback.

I am glad to hear that you were impressed with the service provided by Warren in our Reservations department.

With regards to the finishing of our suites, we try to ensure that the finest materials are used in order to provide our guests a remarkable hotel experience with a residential feel. As the property is just over a year old, a refurbishment is not planned for the near future, but I will be sure to keep your comments on file for future reference.

We have taken note of your feedback regarding our beverage prices in our In Suite Dining menu, and consequently will conduct a market survey to ensure our prices are in line with other 5-star properties in Doha.

Taxi service in the city, as you rightfully pointed out, is mainly concentrated at shopping centers, and there could be delays when calling on local taxi services. Therefore, hotels in Doha, including us, contract with prestigious & reliable limousine companies to be able to provide transportation services round the clock and to a standard acceptable to discerning guests.

Thank you once again for your thoughtful feedback and hope to welcome you again soon.

With kind regards,

Emel Atikkan
General Manager

I stayed here with a colleague - each booking a one bedroom suite. We were there for only 1 night (unfortunately as I would have loved to stay longer), after checking out of another dreadful hotel due to noise.

Incidentally I have been to Doha on business many times and stayed in a number of hotels across the city over the last 8 years, including Sheraton, Marriott, W, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seaons and Ramada.

The reception was spacious and calming and the staff were very efficient.

No external noise - the windows were well-designed so that was a great starting point after a sleepless night elsewhere in Doha due to a construction site and neighbouring mosque the previous night...

The suite was very large, as was the bed. Free wifi with good connectivity for Middle East. Two large LCD televisions, comfortable lounge, well-kitted out kitchen and plenty of space - so much nicer than the usual hotel room set up and for a business trip was perfect and a pleasure to stay there. My colleague and I are pretty fussy and travel extensively in 4 & 5 star hotels for business and pleasure and we were impressed by the Kempinski Residences & Suites.

Bar was buzzy, nicely designed and service there not bad, although as several people have commented - food and drink were expensive.. That said, it's Doha and pricing is similar in many other comparable properties.

Would recommend for business, particularly longer stays. Can't speak for holiday / personal trips I am afraid as I was working, so no time to check out views and pools this time unfortunately! I will definitely stay there again on my next trip to Doha.

I stayed with my family in this hotel and we really enjoyed the stay of 2 days. We were happily surprised to know that we were upgraded to three bedrooms apartment instead of our two bedrooms booked apartment. The apartment was spacious and well furnished.

Our overall experience was perfect.

This hotel is set up for short or long stays. Mainly business type people who are in Doha with no Residents permit and cannot rent their own apartments. Lots of businesses also put people up there. Its quite common to see guests arriving with shopping and definately more of a residence. I stayed there with my family whilst were moving out of Doha. There is valet parking for guests and this is free of charge. The reception area is very modern, the staff very welcoming and genuine. There is a restaurant that is upmarket and overpriced. The food we had on room service wasn't the best quality and the menu was limited. We had a 2 bedroomed suite and this was absolutely massive for a hotel, plenty of storage/hanging space and 3 bathrooms. There was also 2 sofas in the living room, a flatscreen tv and plastic vases that look s real ! There is a building site to one side of it or views over the pearl to the other side. I wouldn;t chose the building site as a view. If you stay under about the 30th floor your view will be obscured by the Somerset House. Its situated in the business district and you can walk to City centre mall. There is a kids club and the staff there worked very hard and my daughter loved it. They were friendly and genuinely were interested in looking after the kids.
The swimming pool is indoor and very nice.There is also a german bakery downstairs and the prices are really reasonable and fresh everyday. The only negative I could give about this hotel was the choice and quality of food for room service. The chicken curry was a giant bone with curry sauce. There is a microwave, cooker, toaster, kettle, fridge freezer and everything you could need in the kitchen. The one bedroom apartments will allow for a rollaway. I can't believe anyone could give bad reviews about this hotel. I am an awkward/fussy traveller and I thought it was excellent. One member of staff stood out to me his name is Daniel and his customer service skills are outstanding ! I would stay here again in a shot.

Room Tip: avoid views of the building site ! Ask for the pearl view.
