3-nights Stay in October 2012.
The stay started very badly when the front desk charged me ten times the amount of the room to my credit card and was not able to void the transaction. It took them 3 days to send the cancellation form to the bank to refund the money and the money is still not on my account.
Then the hotel is very new and the staff is clueless. The room smells like plaster and are very cheaply furnished. The breakfast is very limited in choice and they charged it 70 QAR, about 14 EUR. Some of the staff wear 4 seasons hotel uniform! That's very cheap.
They don't call taxis for the guest, they give you a so called limousine, just a normal car but they charge you like hell: 4 min trip to the exhibition center is 30 QAR, it is basically stealing.
Overall a very bad experience, I travel a lot to Doha, I never had such a bad experience.
