I was booked for one night at the Mercure Grand Hotel in Doha but my flight arrived at 3.30am on the day of my booking. I took a taxi from the airport to the hotel hoping to leave my bags and then check in later, but instead the incredibly helpful receptionist made my room available immediately at no extra charge - effectively giving me a second (part) night at the hotel for free. My room was on the non-smoking floor and was clean and spacious and equipped with very welcome air conditioning. There was also free wifi which was very useful. During my stay I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in La Brasserie restaurant at the hotel; each meal was a buffet and was excellent and fairly-priced. I also used the open-air swimming pool which was perfect for cooling off at the end of the day. The city-centre location of the hotel meant that I could walk for 10-15 minutes to the Souq Waqif and the Corniche and the hotel was able to arrange a taxi when I wanted to go further afield. The hotel also provided a complimentary minibus shuttle to the airport (they run one an hour) for my departure. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. It is true that there is a lot of construction going on near the hotel, but that is true of Doha as a whole and I did not find it particularly disturbing (my room was at the back and so did not overlook the large Musherib Project building site). All in all I would fully recommend this hotel.
