“Great hotel”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

thoroughly enjoyed my third stay at this hotel, which is still pretty new and unusual to look at especially on the inside in the atrium.

Everything was great, the building, the staff, the food choices are possibly a little quirky in The Cellar and in The Jazz Club, I'm not sure about some of the combinations there but maybe I'm getting older and that has something to do with it, the buffet was only experienced for breakfast and that is unbeatable and has to be tried at least once during your stay.

The only small let - down was the fish and chips on the in- room dining menu, which turned out to be four fingers of fish that seemed slightly undercooked in a thick batter, yellowish on the outside and greyish white on the inside - I did talk about this on check - out and I'm surprised as it was so out of step with everything else. But, it did not detract from the overall experience and I will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, quiet and a very good blackout at night.

This is the first time I stayed at a Rotana Group of Hotels. My usual stay is always at Moven Pick in Doha, this was something that my office colleague prasised a lot of this hotel as it was very close the airport.

Indeed heaven and could rate this hotel as one of the top in Qatar, it has a rich and classic look for eite group of people and provide that excellent service. The quality is unbeaten and for the amount that we pay we cannot ask for more.

The rooms are quite spacious and very very neat and properly maintained. The accessories in the bathroom was from some famous designer (forgot the name). My stay was in Nov'2013 for 6 5 nights.

Having praised about the hotel and being a quality ISO auditor myself, encounter some issues that was highlighted to Mr. Lucca Medda - Executive Assistant Manager and Mr. Rachid Aouzal -
Director of Front Office, who comunciated with me over the phone and also through email on the concerns that was raised by me in regards to some issues that I was not very happy.

It was at the check-in counter, things went very well but to my surprise there were few bell boys and other hotel attendants, no one came forward to assist and help to show me the way to the lift or my bag (normally I avoid taking any porter assistance for my luggage as I do it myself). The attendants were watching it and did not bother to come and speak. I had to go and ask one of them to guide me the lift area.

It was at the breakfast restaurant, a similar situation was noticed where guest would try and find a place and were not able to know where to sit as there was this person who takes the room no and leave it for the guest to find his or her own way and take care a table. I experineced this myslef and saw a japanese lady also lost in the crowd and did not know what to do and where to sit. I am mentioning this purposely as it gave me an impresssion that the attendants and staff only wanted to serve and assist some know nationality and few elite person, rest were left for their own deemed destination.

Third thing that I experienced is that i got my sunny side up egg in a plate with a fly on it, when I called the attendant that the plate came with this fly, he was surprise and asked me whether this happen just now, I gave him a stern look and was very upset that morning as if I am telling a lie. He goes with a promise to return with a new portion of same sunny side up eggs, to my surprise i did not get the portion for next 1/2 hr and I finished my breakfast and walked to him and asked hime what happened, to my second surprise he is asking me did i not get it? I had been watching him throughout he passed by everytime and had sufficient time for some previlege nationality and forgot the others.

I reported this incident at the reception while checking out, who was really sad to hear this and asked me to fill in the feedback form, which I did and thus I had calls coming immediately from Mr. Lucca Medda - Executive Assistant Manager and Mr. Rachid Aouzal -
Director of Front Office.

I got an apology email and also a promise to upgrade to my room when I visiting them again, which I am going to do by next month.

Overall this hotel has its class but looks the class have gone to some peoples head within the staff and keep a lesser look at the same guest who also pays the equal amount of money to stay.

I hope things have improved and Mr. Lucca Medda - Executive Assistant Manager and Mr. Rachid Aouzal - Director of Front Office have taken steps to see that these findings are not repeated.

Room Tip: All rooms are quite good and spacious, choice could be limited as every room wil have its own charm...

Superb experience, pickup / drop at Airport , good stay, food, service and excellent place to be in. Good service right from the hotel counter at the airport till you are dropped back to the airport. I liked the food options (Indian options were available at breakfast).

this hotel very close to the airport is perfect for one over night stand in Qatar or even when you stay longer. the room are modern and nice, as well as very clean. wifi high speed internet is given in all parts of the hotel. the best: even in the shuttle bus you have internet.
this hotel is also close to the industrial area, or at least you can avoid the huge traffic of Qatar when you stay there.

Room Tip: is not recommended to have the pool side room's due to the location close to the airport

We loved the place, the staff and everything. We arrived very early in the morning and they allowed us to check in for that day.

The only down side, it's far from the city center, so you can not really talk a walk around the area. But the best place for passengers who have long transit.

Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

Four nights in March. Quiet and comfortable room. Little airport noise. Good amenities. Well stocked minibar. Excellent bathroom with choice of showers.

Reasonably priced hotel cars. Attentive staff. A bit pushy over upgrades, however.

Comprehensive breakfast with buffet and good service. Evening buffets were themed and almost too much. Two soups to choose from (always splendid), large array of arabic starters. Grill and at least 8 choices for main courses. Wine and beer can be part of the package if desired. Friendly service from Arun and colleagues. Book for Thursday's seafood night. Lobster was delicious, although some guests got carried away by putting a large number on their plates. Shame.

I've stayed 3 times and I have no complaints.
