“Comfortable, value for money hotel with good service”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

This hotel was recommended by a friend as 'Value for money' hotel and I must say that it indeed is a value for money hotel. it is located near airport, and the connectivity with the rest the city is quite good. Taxis are easily available right outside the hotel at any hour of the day. The best part is, its 5 min drive from Souq Waqif which is a must see place in Doha. Buffet breakfast is decent with options of continental and Arabic food. I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed their hospitality completely.

The worse hotel experience we've ever had in our lifetime!
Here are our "experience":
1. Check in - We were assigned into a room which somebody else already staying inside! The hotel do not express any apologize.
2. Water - We asked 3 times for drinking water by call and in person at reception, but nobody brings us water. We finally help ourselves like a staff ....
3. Taxi and overcharge by double - we asked hotel to arrange taxi for us to souk and they charge QR30! We eventually went out ourselves and took a taxi which meters stopped at QR7 (we pay QR10 as required)
4. Staff - overall not sincere and polite except the concierge

This hotel is highly not recommended!

Safir hotel was our transit hotel on Qatar Airways when on way back from Venice to Mumbai. Safir is a four star property located approximately 10-15 minutes away from the Doha airport in Najma, Doha. The hotel shuttle picked us and many other transit passengers and dropped to the hotel. At the hotel we were greeted by a cheerful person at the reception who spoke multiple languages. Wi fi was free and reasonably fast.

The room itself was good. The bed was good and afforded a good night's sleep. The bathroom was great, toiletries were good and the overall room was reasonably spacious and well appointed in white decor.

The meals were included in the deal and the spread was excellent. For vegetarians however the spread was a little thin. For breakfast there were different types of bread, juices, beans, grilled tomatoes and potatoes for vegetarians. Lunch and dinner options largely had types of rice and vegetables and pulses.

The location of the hotel however was our biggest complain. It is not located on the main airport road where other hotel chains like the Concorde etc are located. Not that the Najma area where Safir is located is unsafe but it does feel slightly run down. However, as many people we asked - Doha is absolutely safe. Souq Waqif is about a 15-20 minute walk away and the Villagio Mall is about 12 kms away but takes approximately 20-25 minutes by taxi and costs approximately QAR 25 (USD 8-9). Taxis are easily available in Doha and we traveled to Villaggio Mall by local taxis (blue coloured with "Taxi" written atop the vehicle). The hotel has a tie up with a taxi service but that is way too expensive (USD 37-40 per hour).

However, no issues in recommending this hotel.

I stayed 3 nights with my family in this hotel and they were great. We booked 2 rooms with an extra bed. The prices are suitable for everyone and the restaurant is fantastic whatever you want you can find the food is tasty and the place is clean. The bathroom is very clean and every thing you need is there. I liked this hotel however the location is not very good. I think everyone will love this hotel because it is amazing.

Had the privilege of staying here at the convenience of my airline due to me missing my connection. Free shuttle took about ten minutes from the airport and arriving in the early hours, was greeted by friendly concierge. Bit unnerved by them taking my passport for the night but picked it up first thing in the morning.
Room was large, bed was cosy and comfortable. Not much of a view and the air con was noisy, room service was prompt and overall an ok place to stay for the night.

I unexpectedly stayed here for one night when my airline offered me accommodation due to a problem with my flight. The hotel is only 10minutes from the airport (traffic dependant) and the hotel is quite small but that was fine for the purpose of my stay. The room was very large with a massive bed and separate sofa area and it was clean, although it did smell of smoke despite being on a no-smoking floor. The bathroom was also quite large and had a lovely big shower. Yes the aircon was quite loud but it did not interrupt my sleep as I am quite a heavy sleeper. The staff were very friendly, helpful and polite when answering any queries.

Greeted by very friendly staff, even though we arrived late as a cast-off from another hotel. Very nice room, great bathroom (shower was excellent!!!) and really nice atmosphere!! However, the air conditioning in the room was incredibly noisy!!!!
