Horizon Manor Hotel
Ranked #56 of 137 Hotels in Doha
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Horizon Manor was also offered to us by Qatar Airways for over 6 hours as we had missed our connecting flight because of a plane delay. We had a really great time at the hotel. Lovely food, nice and clean. Our room was high up so no noise from the streets. There was free wifi so I could communicate with my family back in South Africa. Had a lovely swim on the roof and the view from there was breathtaking to say the least.

Room Tip: We did not plan to stay in Doha but if we had to again we would chose this hotel.

Spending 3 nights for a business trip, the hotel is very well placed. Nothing fantastic, rooms quite noisy, but comfortable and well equipped. The food is good and buffet dinner perfect for a short pause before going to sleep. The view on the roof and pool is great.

Horizon Manor was offered by Qatar Airways as a complimentary hotel due to the scheduling by Qatar Airways in our schedule. Upon reaching the Doha Airport it was very hectic as the hotel greeter was not identified and we waited quite a while until we were spotted and promptly waited for the other guests to arrive. We checked in about at midnite so can only comment on the room itself. The hotel is about 5 mins from the Doha Arrival terminal.

Pros:-
1. Room size was very big and easy to pack and unpack. The bed was very comfortable
2. Reception speaks excellent English
3. Our connecting flight was at 8.30am so the transport will leave the hotel at 6.00am. This hotel offers breakfast staring from 4am, so it understands the needs of its guest who do not want to prowl around Doha Airport with a growling stomach. Breakfast is a mixture of yogurt, middle eastern cuisine, bread so was OK

Cons:-
1. Room is a bit dated and the toilet needs some updating
2. There was only 1 bath towel in the room despite the room having twinbeds. Housekeeping was no longer available after 12pm so a call to the reception to request for a towel was made. The towel didn't show up, presumedly lost as well at the arrival area of the Doha Airport

Overall, as this is a complimentary hotel offered by QA thus we can't advise on the price. However its early breakfast is a positive as the other hotel we stayed in did not have this.

Was offered this hotel as a free layover by Qatar Airways, as my layover lasted over 8 hours. It's good of the airline to offer a complimentary hotel, although one wishes it were a different one. Horizon Manor is well located, and they are making an effort. Guests are offered free dinner, breakfast and lunch, despite what time they arrive (I arrived at 1 am and was still told that hot food and drinks are available, very nice). The rooms are relatively clean - they are a bit musty, dingy and basic, but for a free hotel, one can't complain, at least the sheets and floors are in good shape, and the place has air conditioning, free internet and cable tv. The rooms are also palatial in size - its rather the size of a large suite than a room.

What brings the hotel down, however, is the sleaze factor. They may need to be more discerning about their clientele. Especially for single women travelling alone - try to stay elsewhere. Until late hours of the night, you see relatively drunk men skulking the lobby and corridors, many who smoke everywhere, including inside the elevators, and several filipina girls in their company, some who look rather displeased to be there. Put two and two together as you may. When I stayed here alone, my first instinct was to lock the door, and not open it till the next morning.

We stayed here care of Qatar Airways as out flight was delayed. Initially we were fairly pleased. The hotel is right near the centre of the city and easily accessible. Our room was big with a huge bed and the rooftop pool with views over the city was great. The food in the restaurant and the breakfast was pretty appalling. However the worst thing about this hotel is the noise! I think there was a wedding on and at midnight we were trying to sleep on the 3rd floor and all we could hear was thumping music. We called the front desk who said they couldn't do anything! It continued until after midnight and we had a 7am flight to catch. We rang again and they changed us to a room on the 5th floor but the thumping music could still be heard! Really unacceptable that this would happen in a hotel like this and I bet we weren't the only ones complaining. Can't see this hotel improving unfortunately.

Close to the airport, in the old part of Doha but only 5 minutes walk to Souq-Waqif shops, Doha Harbour, & the Museum of Islamic Art. Old hotel but the standard rooms are ok with comfortable bed & clean bathroom. Indian restaurant serves standard fare. Spend time on the rooftop pool which has great views of the Harbour & Souq-Waqif, especially at sunset. Front desk service was prompt & friendly.
