Mercure Grand Hotel Doha
Ranked #55 of 140 Hotels in Doha
Reviewed October 8, 2013

For someone that was not a good time, and I was very pleased.I was in this hotel quite by accident. My plane flew away , and the new flight was not until the next morning. Qatar Airways put us in this hotel for 1 night for free. I was alone , but I still was given a double room . Making all the formalities was a little less than 1 minute. I took my passport , and was given a room key and passwords Wi fi . The room had two beds , a nice bathroom , and a balcony with views of Doha . Of pleasant things - it's tea sets , a free safe in high quantities in bathroom accessories , the availability of the hair dryer, bathrobe and so on. during my stay I was able to visit only breakfast in the hotel and I can say that the kitchen is very, very good . For breakfast there was quite a large selection of food and most importantly everything was fresh and tasty.

Room Tip: gorgeous to stop for 1 night

The only positive thing about this hotel is the location in old downtown Doha which allows you to go walking to thethe old Zouk which is one of the attractive spots in the city because it is very real - not as all the new buildings in new Doha.
Apart from that, the hotel is not nice, noisy, and definetely not the kind of place you'd want to stay for more than 1 night...

This hotel is very far from the city center.It costs about 10 $ to the city center by taxi and takes about 20 to 30 mts to get there depending on traffic.The souk is a short walk from the hotel.Staff is good.Breakfast is average with waiters having a no care attitude.The rooms are cramped.Bed is hard with springs showing you sleep on springs not on a bed.Rooms are clean recently whitewashed.Chairs are pretty old.Decor is poor for a mercure.

Dear Customer,
I have seen your comments and we are at the city center of Doha, I think you are talking of the West bay site of the super market city center between the towers.
The old city center is around the souk Waqif and next to our hotel.
It is under re construction now.
We are doing our room renovation, and the hotel will have Privilege rooms available by end of 2013. This year we have focus on the security of the building.
We hope to see you again soon.

Tired and old, noisy as it is opposite a huge construction site which is going night and day, wifi very slow if at all in the rooms, poor quality juice and coffee in the morning (apple juice tasted watered down and the coffee was awful)

Just might be worth staying here if you are working on the construction site opposite so you can nip back to your room easily but otherwise I'd avoid - no way is this one worth the money.

Room Tip: Go for the side of the hotel not facing the construction site

Dear Guest ,

I have read properly your review and I fill that you were very disappointed of your stay.
We would like to apology.
Yes the hotel is 30 years, but we are under process for the room renovation it will be finish by end 2013.
The location of the hotel cannot be changed, but in few years it will be the best place in town.
I am agreed the majority of our customers are working now for the beautiful site of Msheireb and the construction of the Metro Hub of Doha.
We hope that you will give us another chance later..

I stayed many nights, but my room was ready when I arrived at 7am. The room was very average, but clean and comfortable. All of the reception staff I spoke to were very helpful and efficient. The airport shuttle from the hotel was a good value and if you are a solo traveller, I strongly recommend it.

I was very impressed that after an overnight flight from Europe at 7am they had a room ready for us, which made the day a lot more comfortable. The rooms were spotless and quiet. The staff at check we're very pleasant and helpful. The location is near the main souk, which gave good shopping and eating on the doorstep of the hotel.
