This used to be the Sofitel and it is pretty much the same as it was. Very central, handy for the Souq Waqif and within walking distance of the Cornich and dthe Museum of Islamic Art. The only down side is the massive construction site right in front of the hotel, they are building 'Downtown Doha', another shopping mall. This one is 9 storeys deep so it looks like it may take another few years to finish.
The hotel is basic and clean, rooms were a bit small but nothing to complain about if you are looking for a budget room in the area. My only complaint is the shower which trickled water, little pressure on the 11th floor. All rooms have a balconey
Staff are friendly and helpful, room service is 24 hours and is fast.
There is a car park in the basement, bar and restaurant on the second floor, swimming pool on the 3rd floor.
