I stayed here for 2 nights in a club room for a short layover trip on the way to Europe. Some points about the hotel:
Location - It is in an excellent location on the water and in downtown Doha. Because it is centrally located, I could walk down the Corniche or into downtown. It is about a 10 minute taxi ride to the souq and Islamic museum, and about 15-20 minutes to the airport depending on traffic. Overall I think it is one of the best centrally located hotels in Doha.
Rooms - Rooms were very comfortable and maintained. No issues.
Staff and Service - All were very friendly and accommodating.
Ambiance - As other reviews stated, this is an older hotel and the property shows its age. It is kind of like stepping back in time 10-20 years and experiencing what used to be the premier hotel in Doha. While the hotel is dated, it has been maintained well. While I think the hotel could probably be gutted and refurbished from top to bottom, it was still comfortable. I liked the fact that there was a good amount of public spaces and outdoor spaces to include a large pool and beach area.
