I stayed at the Doha Intercontinental for a quick weekend getaway. It is a nice and pleasant location with lots to do. The staff are very helpful and kind. There is some construction going on at the moment, so it is slightly noisy. The hotel has its own private beach and some average restaurants. The was a good selection avaiable for breakfast and the staff here were very enthusiastic and eager to help. Overall, it is a good weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Try to get a sea facing room rather than a city facing room.

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times. The hotel does its job, it is efficient and clean and reasonably comfortable. Have always got a lovely sea-view from the room. Their pool is incredibly busy with expats. This trip was during the England/Ukraine match and all their three bars were really crowded.

The hotel is slightly out of the way, around 5 minutes extra. Since this is an older property, it is overshadowed by the newer hotels in the center, including a new Intercontinental as well.

The hotel is nice and big, but it is clearly a bit old in the rooms and the bathrooms. It would probably be good some renovation, in the general style as well. A good thing is the nice sandy beach just outside, and the big pool. It was full of people all day long even in the incredible heat, around +45. The restaurant is really good, both lunch and breakfast, the stuff very kind and helpful. Internet worked very bad, and this was quite an issue for me they I was traveling for business. So in general a good stay, but I am sure that the hotel could work on its weak points. The location is good, and considering the price per room, I was expecting something more.

The Intercon is our Doha home away from home. A great place for a weekend escape, staycation, or just a place to relax for a day. Great beds, good rooms, a delicious breakfast, nice pool and beach. The great restaurants are the icing on the cake.

I stayed for few days in Intercon in Doha - on West Bay Lagoon. The location is excellent , between Cornishe and Pearl with a wonderfoul outside pool and acces to the sea. I had an average experience with the hotel , since the service was inconsistent. I have been woke-up on Sunday morning to be asked when I what the room to be clanned , I told then in 15 minutes , I left the room and 4 hours later the room was not cleaned. The worst thing was about the Cafe Restaurant. The restaurant has no connenction with the kitchen so they are bringing the food inside by walking in the sun for 5-10 feets! The breakfast was bellow average but lunch and dinner very good. The pool service was excellent. Conclusion : under expectation of a 5 stars hotel.
