“Great hotel - be careful with taxis”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

With its own small beach and space to relax by the good sized pool, this was the perfect place for our week's visit to Doha. The staff could not have been more pleasant, welcoming or helpful. The rooms are spotless and the bathrooms fantastic. We enjoyed cocktails and dinner at Trader Vics, both inside and out on the terrace. The breakfast buffet is pretty standard but the staff were very obliging and efficient.

The hotel is well placed for getting around Doha by taxi, it's too hot to walk. Plenty of taxis available (Karwa) at the hotel but make sure you insist they switch the meter on set to 4QR. We were ripped off twice before we complained to the hotel who then made sure we were taken care of.

We stayed for one night in a Club room with balcony. We had sea views and views to the city. This corner room was the best we have ever had. Of course, it was noisy, but we loved to sit and watch the life on the streets and on the building site opposite. City life in perfection, the lights of the skyline unforgettable.

Walking distance to City Center and a short, inexpensive taxi ride to the Souq Waqif and the airport, this is a great location for a layover destination. The beach and pool are very nice, but shopping in the hotel is scarce for beach necessities (thankfully only a 10 minute walk to the mall). Stick to the Souq for more local cuisine, though the hotel seems good for more western taste.

It has been a very long time since I was so impressed by a hotel. This Hilton is one of the very best; it has a great setting with a private beach, yet is close to the centre. From the moment of arrival where they have a welcome desk in the airport and throughout our stay we were constantly impressed and pleasantly surprised. The staff seem to come from far and wide yet all spoke good English and had obviously been trained in looking after guests. There are plenty of alternatives for food (and the food quality was very high) and most have good views over the sea. The rooms are spacious and well-kept and many offer great views. Indeed for once I really can’t think of anything bad to say, so I will just go on record as saying we found it excellent in all regards and somewhere I would very readily come to again.

Room Tip: The higher the better for good views.

I just wanted to write and recommend this absolutely suberb friendly hotel.

We travelled recently with our baby for the first time . from the moment we arrived the team at the Hilton could not have been any more welcoming and helpful.

Our room was a very good size and always spotless( not an easy task when the extra occupant is a baby) the bathroom has such a spa luxurious feel

Room service is set up in your room to mirror a restaurant dinner , the price is very reasonable

All pools and beach area are 100 % accessible, clean and again staff go beyond the call to make your comfort a must!

The nearby mall is only a 10 minute pleasant walk through a safe friendly area. This mall has absolutely everything you would need to scratch that shopping itch


All in all , I would love to pick this hotel up and take it with me everywhere I travel

Stayed with the family on a stop over and enjoyed it. The hotel seems to cater for business primarily which is not a criticism but there is not too much of a "resort feel". Having said that they have a great kids play room with all sorts of toys and a couple of good pools. We stayed on one of the top floors and had issues with the water pressure but the staff did their best to fix the problem and compensate us. The club level benefits were great and the staff in there particularly obliging.
