Doha are soon to open a new airport, and are trying to attract more tourist.....
If it was not for Qatar Airways, who would go to Doha ???
Apart from business travellers, not a lot !!
Still collecting a 100 rial (just under £20) entry charge, per person, per visit, is far from encouraging. The city itself is in it's infancy and at the moment the Museum of Islamic Art is the only place of some interest. There is quite an impressive skyline, but u can see this from the airport.
The Corp is very close to the airport, you can see it from the arrival terminal, and is in easy walking distance. Can you walk ? NO!!
There is a pedestrian bridge over the dual carriage way between airport and the Corp which would make it a 10min or less walk, but this is for staff only. Instead you are caged in the arrival terminal and would have a kilometre walk out of your way and back to end up where you started.
The only option, forced on you, is a taxi. This cost approx 30 rial (£6) The first driver did not know The Corp, as I could see it this was not a problem, and on my first visit to Doha I directed the driver to my destination.
On arrival at The Corp some civilisation seemed to be resumed. Check in was swift and for the first time I was made to feel welcome. The suite at The Corp are well designed and feel comfortable and safe, and for the £60 a night rate are good value. The location I would describe as being in real Doha, with a real feel to it. I explored this day and night and felt safe at all times. Also experiencing the new part of the city, which I can only describe as, opulent, empty, and artificial.
They do try and look after you at The Corp, and do their best.
To get a taxi back to the airport,which you can see, the only way is to walk for 5mins to the dual carriage way and flag one down. This will cost 20 rial (£4) the only other option is to book the hotel car in advance and this will cost 55 rial (£11)
