I decided to stay overnight in Doha and explore the city, this basically because I travel on Qatar
Airways frequently and much enjoy visiting Dubai.
After landing and once again much rested and overfed travelling Qatar I entered the country through their Premium Terminal which was super fast.
To my dismay the limousine ride in to the city took an hour...! Thjs at 2:30 pm...
Check in at the Intercon was effortless with a very pleasent receptionist, I was upgraded to their
Ambasador Jr Suite which was
Two Malls located close to the hotel, City Mall was a waste of time, large, dull, strange nobrand stores, felt like it was built in the early 1960's. The other Mall close by had a couple of nice stores
(Paul Smith, Canali, etc) but was not that great either.
I was told that it would take at least 45m to visiit their prestige Mall and even longer back.
Doha can in no way be compared to Dubai, not for holiday makers or anybody really not forced to visit because of business.
Will not visit again, but will continue flying their airline.
The hotel btw was excellent, great rooms, great staff and the food st the Square was really excellent. Amazing service as well.
