“Good Airport Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Checked into the hotel at a desk at the airport just after exiting customs and got free bus round to the hotel. Got high floor but not airport view which I understand is better. Nice clean room and great buffet breakfast then back on the bus to the airport ......
Happily recommend the place, everything worked and the staff were very pleasant.

Room Tip: High floor, airport view!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

I only had one quick stay here while transiting through Doha, but it was a nice hotel.

The lobby is quite dramatic and they had a musician playing the piano. There was ample seating in the lobby. There were several separate areas some of which served food. Surprisingly there was no free wifi anywhere, even in the lobby.

The room was quite nice. We got a room with 2 queen beds since we were 2 single guys travelling together. I felt the bed was quite comfortable.

The bathroom was large and well stocked with towels and such.

The TV was big, but there were not a lot of channels in English.

The gym was very nice and had lots of fitness equipment.

The pool was big, but very shallow; almost too shallow to swim laps.

I didn't eat there since I was only there a short time and had to leave before breakfast was served, but I did visit the Jazz club bar. It was an OK place, but the prices were extremely high. One Heineken beer was over $10US.

There didn't appear to be too much to do nearby. I walked around a few blocks and there is a small park and a mosque nearby, but that was about it. If you wanted to see the main attractions of the area, I would probably recommend staying more toward the Corniche.

If you need a place to stay for a short time while on a long layover, this place is just fine and I would definitely recommend it. It is quite close to the airport and they have a shuttle.

We spent a night in Doha waiting for our flight to Katmandu. Beautifully appointed, friendly staff, magnificent rooms and common areas. Great location, particularly if you are heading to the airport early the next mooring.
The breakfast buffet was amongst the finest I'd ever tasted.

I stayed here for one night as I was travelling from Zurich zu India. The rooms are very comfortable. What impressed me the most is their buffet. I had breakfast and lunch here and I think I gained two kilos in only one day by trying all the different dishes. I will definitely come back here, next time with my husband. The only thing which could be improved is that the WiFi is for free. The charges there are definitely too high. I think it should be for free.

The hotel is suited near the airport and near by the corniche in Doha. From the moment you step into the hotel until check out, this hotel makes sure you experience the finest stay. The hotel staff is helpful, kind and hospitable and the service is so prompt. It gives you a perfect experience of home away from home.

My suite was fully equipped and decorated in a stylish modern manner. The housekeeping has always insured to keep the room clean. The hotel is well equipped with many restaurants like a shisha garden, wine cellar etc. with varied cuisines. A must visit in Doha is the Jazz Club. You must also try the delicious buffets at The Choices which is excellent because of the selection of food and desserts. Room service was on time and delicious and the menu spoils you with enormous choices. If you choose to order from room service, try the King prawns - was mouthwatering.

They have a well equipped gym facility as well as steam and sauna, massage services and a family friendly pool. The internet facility at the hotel is first-rate and can also be used at public areas in the hotel. I also used the business service at the hotel, which was excellent. A souvenir store part of duty free is also present at the hotel - perfect for travel gifts.

All main attractions like souk waqif, corniche, museums, restaurants and other attractions are near by. The hotel also arranges for taxi services as well as limo services to take you around, which is so useful. The best stretch of Doha is walkable from the hotel.

Rotana hotels have always provided great service, outstanding hospitality, hardworking staff, delicious and appetizing food, and impeccable suites. And Orxy Rotana definitely follows the same path.
