Reviewed January 16, 2012

We spent 1 night at Oryx Rotana Doha during a visit in Qatar to discover the new museums and city architecture.
We appreciated the Rotana location at walking distance from Doha airport departure terminal and close to city centre and corniche (10mn-drive by taxi).
We enjoyed its modern facilities, well-fitted room, excellent breakfast buffet, professional staff.
We just regret that the swimming pool's depth is unsufficient ...: when swimming you may hit your knees on the bottom ...
We did not test the Rotana's restaurants as we preferred to dine downtown at Souq-Al Waqif.

Room Tip: Take a room facing the airport rather than on the street

Located so close as it is to the airport in Doha, the expectation was that the Oryx Rotana would provide travellers arriving at all hours with a degree of flexibility over check-in and check-out times. This, unfortunately, was not the case. Having arrived at the hotel after an 18-hour flight from South America with a 9-hour flight to China the following day, we checked in just before midnight. Our hope was to check out the following evening (22 hours later). However, the Duty Manager (Michael) was insistent that we be charged for two nights' stay. We asked for a degree of flexibility but were declined.

Although most staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful, the staff on Reception had a tendency to focus on the computer screens in front of them rather than on their customers. Approaching customers were required to wait for the Reception staff to finish what they were doing on their computers before they could be served, giving the customer the impression that they were inconveniencing the staff.

Would I return to the hotel? No. Although proximity of the hotel to the airport was the main attraction for us, it offers nothing more. In future, we will venture into the city and stay at one of the better hotels in the centre of Doha.

We stayed at the Oryx Rotana on our way with Qatar Airways from Nairobi to Oslo. We had just enough time for a great chinese meal at one of the hotels restaurants, and a good nights sleep. Clean, spacious and modern rooms - allthough aircon felt a bit cold coming from warm and non-conditioned Africa. Would be happy to stay here again, even for a longer trip to Qatar. Big plus for short distance from airport, and we couldn't hear planes from our room. Free shuttle from arrival terminal, no trouble with check-in or check-out - even though they reserve an amount for eventualities when checking in.

Note one thing: It seemed to me that if you book through Qatar Airways when you want to stay the night for a transfer flight, you don't have to pay the visa-fee at the border. I booked myself, and had to pay the 20 USD or so to get visa.

Its a great place to stay for business, if you can sleep through the noise of air planes landing and taking off. the service and staff are cordial as always and the overall hotel is busy and buzzing with action. try our the new chinese restaurant or the jazz lounge. I found the prices at the Chinese to be quiet reasonable along with the Drinks.
Its in the centre of the city, so super location wise
Gym is very good, so i had a good workout before i started my working day.
they do not have a CRM, the new attendant at the Lobby asked me if I had visited the Hotel before.
Anyways he more than made it up with his smiley face.

Room Tip: try and stay on the side facing the city and not the airport

I stayed in this hotel for 7 days during January and I enjoyed every minute of it. Everyone in the hotel is super friendly and helpful. We could use the spa for free which was nice after a long day, they also provided us with guided tours to explore the city. A downside might be that it is a little outside the city center (located next to the airport) but taxi's are really cheap so that shouldn't put anyone off. During the day it could get a little chilly by the pool due to wind, but the water was heated so that was nice. There are also 5 restaurants that serve excellent food and there is also good room service! And for breakfast there is a buffet where you can eat anything you can imagine. All in all this is a wonderful hotel that I can definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask a non-smoking room because the Middle-East still allows smoking everywhere. There are rooms that...
