“Excellent Airport Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

This hotel is exactly what an airport hotel should be - close to the airport, easy to get to and able to offer weary travellers a variety of food, drink and entertainment with the minimum of fuss. We stayed one night just before Christmas and ate in the Jazz Club. We had great steaks whilst an early-evening jazz trio entertained us. Slightly later the trio became a six-piece with a singer (I personally preferred the trio!). We had a few cocktails and glasses of wine and whilst the evening was not cheap, we felt it was worth the money. The service was very good and the room was comfortable with a great shower and comfy bed. The transfer to and from the airport takes 5 minutes and the bus goes every 15 minutes on the hour, quarter hour etc. Will definitely stay again if transferring through Doha.

Everything about our stay at the Oryx Rotana was pleasant and effortless - the very experience that we welcomed as we neared the end of a long journey.
The transfer van from the airport was quickly arranged by the representative at kiosk 13 at the airport; the driver was polite and professional. Check-in at the hotel went quickly. Our non-smoking room was a well-appointed oasis. I loved the tasteful, contemporary decor. Good lighting, adequate power points; an electrical adapter was a most welcome touch. The bathroom was clean, spacious and well-appointed with lovely, fresh towels. In-room tea/coffee (and mineral water) was a nice feature. Bed linens were excellent.
I would happily stay here again and would comfortably recommend this hotel to anyone requiring a stay in Doha.

Great comfort in room and bathroom (brand new with very nice rain shower).
Location is convenient if you are there for connecting flight otherwise it's a bit far from the center (west bay). Visit the souq if you are there for a few hours only.
The jazz bar is very nice too for a drink but pricey though. This is most probably because a lot of people have Qatar airways voucher.

We had a ridiculously early flight out of Doha and decided to start our vacation a day early at the Oryx. We felt on vacation too, the welcoming staff, pleasant décor and good rooms were far above what you expect from an airport hotel. Great food and service in their Chinese restaurant got us ready for an afternoon/evening nap, aided by good blackout in the quiet bedroom. Well furnished and with a huge walk-in shower, the bathroom matched. We rounded it off with a couple of hours in the jazz club and a nice light meal before a 2am checkout. Staff were keen to help with cases and make sure the shuttle bus was waiting. We will surely stay here again.

Stayed here 3 nights while in Doha for a family wedding. Every member of staff I came into contact with was attentive, polite and did their best to help you. Location next to the current airport is a big plus given Doha's traffic congestion. The associated negative is it takes a while to get into the city especially as there are no mass transit options available.

Buffet breakfast is very good although food prices generally are quite high compared to what you could get of similar quality elsewhere.

Overall very impressed at the quality provided by a local Middle Eastern hotel company. Great showers, spacious rooms, fast lifts. Will be keen to seek out other Rotana hotels in the future.

The hotel is very convenient when having a stop over in Doha. The ambiance of the hotel is great. Gives value for money and has great F&B outlets. The Wine bar is a must to visit with great Tapas food and wines.
Love the jazz bar as well.

Overall a great hotel to stay when in Doha. Staff is very friendly in all areas. I will be back

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher floor are great.

Very inviting and immaculately done up hotel adjacent to the airport. Upon arrival do not forget to register yourself at the Oryx Rotana booth immediately after the exit fron customs. They helped finding the shuttlebus to the hotel - which takes 5 mins - and if you have not prepaid this can be done on the spot. Very helpful.

The hotel itself is pretty spotless. I had a standard room which has a very reasonable size and has a luxerious feel to it. Location is somewhat of the beaten track but since taxis are plentiful and the preferred means of transportation in Doha anyways I wouldn't consider this a massive con.

Only let down is the fact that wifi costs extra - in my case 75 qatari riyals which I find slightly insulting in 2014. Otherwise great hotel which I would happily visit again.
