First time in Doha .. we were a little apprehensive about our stay. The hotel charges you for your pickup from the airport and that's like 80 QR [That's mighty expensive]. The Hotel is located between the Toyota signal and CSD signal and it is on the main road just opposite Crown Plaza hotel. It is just a 10 minute drive from the airport. Please be aware that the taxi's from the airport will con you and do not pay more than 30 QR to get to the hotel. If you are a first timer you will need a local sim.. just head to the small shop behind the hotel. The Indian shop has everything you need to start a living in Doha. Avoid the nights as it is a little shady with a lot of weird people hanging around.
The hotel's breakfast is amazing and caters to International clientele. Don't expect Indian you are not going to get it. The rooms are well done up and its good enough for 2 people. Take the road facing room .. its fun to see the sun set and the cars whiz by. Wifi is cool .. you will get it all over the hotel. The Room Service menu is extremely expensive [at least 10 times of what it is outside]. The toiletries were really not that good. The Soaps and Shampoos were just normal.. Full credit to the house keeping folks .. they were tidy like hell and I wanted to keep the room clean so that I wouldn't want to hassle them too much. The Iron and Iron board is a problem .. it's always not available at your call. You will feel comfortable in your room and working from your room will be a breeze. Sleep Quality is pretty good and I am sure you will enjoy the cozy bed and pillows.
The nearest Indian Veg Restaurant is Vasantha Bhavan at the corner of the CSD signal. There are very less options for pure veg but non vegetarians can have a call if they are ready to experiment with local cuisine. Please try Asiana Buffet [Restaurant after Toyota Signal Opp Qatar Airways building] or try taking a taxi to Salwa Rd where you have good fine dining options. But there are no eateries close to the hotel or maybe we need to explore more.
The staff in the hotel are extremely helpful and they will ensure that you are at home. I loved the lobby as I spent long hours working there with a cup of coffee..
On the whole a great experience and is definitely a good place to stay ..
