“Great stay in Doha”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The Ritz is one of the best in Doha. The staff is fantastic, very warm and friendly and offer top notch service. We were upgraded to a lovely suite that offered plenty of space, amenities galore, and such a comfortable and peaceful night's rest. Dinner at La Mer was as fancy as you'd expect from the Ritz, but unpretentious and delicious with an amazing view from the top. The pool is lovely with a great swim-up bar and plenty of seating in and out of the shade. There's a great indoor lap pool as well. Habanos has a great happy hour 2 for 1 special and the Admiral's Club has great outdoor seating and a laid-back vibe if you need a break from the Ritzy-ness. It's pricey but so are most of the hotels in Doha.

The Ritz is probably the friendliest hotel in town. You feel welcomed by all staff members. We just had a lovely getaway weekend, and The Ritz fit the bill perfectly. We could easily move between an excellent breakfast, lounging by the pool, high end dinner, and dancing at Admiral's Club. Before we checked in, we thought we might leave the hotel once or twice, just wander over to Lagoona Mall across the way for alternate restaurants, but we never actually found any reason to leave at all.
Everything was generally excellent.

Comfortable bed. Standard RC rooms and service (very good). And really really delicious room service. It was only a short layover in Qatar - but a very nice calm break from a long travel schedule. I would stay there again.

Ideally located. Rooms are excellent. Stayed for a day. City centre is quite a distance from here. Service is excellent. The Hotel lacks a 24x7 restaurant though. Check in process is fast so is the check out.

A classy hotel, but without being too formal, the Ritz-Carlton provides exceptional service. I lost my voice a couple of days earlier (in a crappy hotel in Kuwait), and the staff was really pro-active in providing me the means to recover as quickly as possible. I also lost my wallet in the car to my office, and they were helpful in finding it and informing me. The only downside is a so-so outside swimming pool: it's great for drinking etc., but for a swimmer like me, a bigger pool (or a beach...) would be much better. On the other hand: breakfast is exceptional, the rooms are nice, and value for money is out of this world (less than 200 euro per night for a 5-star hotel). Conclusion: a big thumbs up for the Ritz!

Room Tip: Rooms 14-24 (on each floor) have better views on the city

Stayed recently for the weekend.
In my previous review I mentioned the high security level which was annoying me especially if you are that kind of person who enters the hotel for several times in the day. However, at this visit I mentioned that the check-point was removed and the entrance is now more smoothly.
The Ritz will always stay the Ritz, reflecting the high standard and luxury stay. However, the room was little bit dark even with all lights open!!

There is only one plug near the main mirror (it’s just one mirror), so either you use it to plug the lamp or to plug anything else and leave the room even darker. For ladies wishing to dry their hair or putting their make-up they will find it difficult to do.
Otherwise, the hotel is good. But you will still find more high standard hotels in Doha with lower price.

Stayed on the club floor for a 3 night stay and meetings. Impressive service levels, very responsive and helpful. Looking into the detail of needs is not something you find often any more. This staff really cares and looks after you like royalty. Bravo team Ritz Carlton Doha Qatar!

Room Tip: Stay in a club room. Full buffet and drinks, pressing and incredible views included.
