“Nice hotel, big bedrooms”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

We stayed there in 2012 in our way to Thailand. Hotel was booked by Qatar Airways travel service and we were positively surprise by the quality if the hotel and their service.

Bedrooms are quite big, actually these are suites (at least the one we got) with a living room and separate bedroom.

Restaurant was quite good with large choice of dishes. Staff is basically from India or Philipines and all of them are very polite and try to help you to their best.

We found thst hotel was far away from malls and that old town wasn't really old and interesting but you can go anywhere by taxi, seevice is good and price is average.

So, very nice hotel. We rested perfectly well(we needed it as it was a long trip with many hpurs of time difference)

Everything we have expected was provided. The room and the bathroom were both clean and good sized. The bed was French double size which is a little smaller than normal double bed. The hotel staff were very friendly and check in and check out process were very smooth. The hotel was located quite far away from any sightseeing location so we needed to get taxi to anywhere we wanted to go, apart from the souk. The souk was approximately 10min walk from the hotel and it is do-able if you are used to the heat. We have been to many souks in surrounding countries but this particular one in Doha was by far the best. The atmosphere was a lot more relaxed compared to other souks and there were tens (if not more) of nice restaurants and cafes in the centre of the souk. You could also get there by taxi which is actually really cheap if you make sure to tell the driver to use meter. The first couple of taxi rides, we haggled the price instead of asking for the meter and that turned out to be more than double of normal meter price. But we quickly learnt to only get into taxis with meter. The hotel itself was very good for the price we paid. We were very happy with our choice.

Room Tip: I believe we were given a corner room which was very nice.

It was an excellent experience for me and my wife to stay in Ramada Encore Doha; but too short! I wished if we had the opportunity to stay longer. Place is clean, neet and tidy. Staff were very helpfull. The Indonesian Receptions (I missed his name) was an outstanding. Location is good enough for all necessary activities. We enjoyed extra time for checking out as it was Friday prayer. This itself was an element of apprecation.

I would recommend this hotel for both business and couples.

Room Tip: Go for higher floors to avoid traffic noise.

We spent the past weekend in Doha from Thursday evening to Sunday evening. I booked the Ramada Encore simply for a cheap place to stay after landing late at night Thursday before our stay at another hotel on the beach. I was incredibly happy to find out that not only is it the most inexpensive stay in Doha, but extremely clean, comfortable and centrally located. The taxi fare from DOH was only 30 rials. The hotel staff was very, very friendly. We didn't get in until about 1 AM Friday morning and slept in later than we had planned. Checkout is at noon, so we got a call just before that from reception asking if we were staying another night. We weren't and I was shocked to find out what time it was, but he was very friendly and helpful and extended our checkout until 3 PM without any problem. As we checked out, the men working at the front desk offered to keep our bags for us for the day and let us know that we could use the facilities and pool for the whole day. The bell hop was incredibly nice and gave us directions to the sites we wanted to see that day, and I was very surprised to find that the Islamic Museum of Art, the Cultural Center, Souq Waqif and the Corniche were all within walking distance. If I visit Doha again I will be sure to stay here and allow myself more time to spend at the hotel facilities.

OK for the business traveler, good location. For the most part clean, though the trash basket at the desk had not been emptied prior to my accompanying the room. Room was small and boxy with very limited natural light. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A no frills kind of place. Check-out was a bit tedious and time consuming.

I would highly recommended contacting Mena when securing accommodation at the Ramada Encore Doha. The service he and his team provide is exceptional when working with business executives. Staff are professional, discreet and service and rooms are of a high-standard.
