“Good value, good location”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We stayed two nights at Kingsgate, travelling to South Africa from Europa via Doha. We had never been to Doha before, but in retrospect we can now say that we are happy with our choice of hotel. One reason is that it is quite close to the airport, another that is situated on walking distance both to the picturesque old souk, and to the striking new Museum of Islamic Art, one of the main attractions of this city. - On the other hand , if you want to stay in the ultramodern business district, this is not the place, but then you have to accept to be much further from the Airport.
.

We were very well received by the helpful and friendly staff, and the room was with any objection, Nice bathroom, perfect safe for valuables. Wifi functioned very well

If we come back to Doha, we would not hesitate to stay at Kingsgate again.

Our expectations of this hotel were quite low. We were pleasantly surprised how nice it actually was. Positives - The staff were friendly and breakfast was very good. Rooms are ok, clean but a little cramped with the big chair next to the kitchen units. Negatives - taxi drivers are unaware of the hotel. We had to direct them to the hotel by telling them it's near the Souq.

I have been to Doha five time this year already and I have stayed at this hotel four times, my longest stay was for three weeks. I did very much like the hotel staff, everyone was nice and friendly and I did enjoy the service too. I really enjoy the location of this hotel.very close to souq waqif and about 10 min from the airport. Their restaurant may not be the best in town, but their breakfast was great and their internet work good too. I will be back here later this year and I'm looking forward to seeing all the staff again.....

Room Tip: all their executive suites are comer rooms with great views.

Iftar Buffet was very poor and very limited selection, Also the service in the restaurant was so poor.

Housekeeping was poor and restaurant staff were indifferent.The restaurant was not clean and many flies were seen in the food area.

So, I won't eat there again.

I recently spent 6 days at the Kingsgate hotel, and was very happy with the service, breakfast, and views (from the 9th floor).

This is not a luxury hotel, but it suited me perfectly - small, friendly, clean, relatively spacious, great city views (dusty windows are a given here), and excellent wifi. Breakfast was worth paying for. I didn't have lunch or dinner here, as I could get excellent meals in the Souq Waqif for slightly cheaper, and a more authentic dining experience.

Greatly appreciated the warm welcome and early check in, at no extra charge. Arriving at 6AM in the Doha summer is an interesting experience!

Local traffic around the hotel is, er, dangerous - once you get past the front entrance!

I was lucky enough to find a local (safe) driver who took me around. it is about 10-15 mins walk from Souq Waqif (beware heat and traffic), and 25-30 mins from the Corniche and Museum of Islamic Art (tip follow traffic / police signals / cross during traffic jams).

On the 9th floor, traffic noise was not much of a problem. Air conditioning can be a little noisy, but you get used to it - particularly in the summer! Agree with lack of powerpoints to charge devices - but I coped. Note - Light / fan switch for bathroom are located above sink in kitchenette, took a little while to find!

Will happily stay at this hotel again, as felt more comfortable and welcome here than at my conference hotel in outer Doha. At the price, was a fantastic base for a first time budget traveller.

Room Tip: Room 906 was great :) Lovely view of city by night.

The most advantage is the hotel location, very close to souq waqif and about 10 min from the airport. The rooms is good, clean and big. The two main disadvantages were. only two electricity output. In the room , which you. Make difficult to charge all you devices in one time, the other is the poor. And similar of the breakfast everyday. Also the service in the restaurant is so poor.

Booked the hotel with the help of the reviews on Tripadvisor ,as our flight the next day required a late check out , asked if this a possibility, not a problem and no extra charge, I was very impressed to say the least, the desk staff very helpful to accommodate us in all aspects.

The room we had , well appointed with a kitchen sort of thing thrown in, and everything else you expect in a hotel of this standard, great and comfortable beds, that is a must!
WiFi connection standard, what else, just a great hotel, we have travelled a lot over time and know what a decent hotel should be.

What more it is just 10 minutes walk from the main Souq Waqif ,a must if you have the time to explore this fascinating place.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 8th floor with harbour views, no noise.
