“Couldn't Have Been Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2011

My husband, daughter and I stayed at this hotel earlier this week as my husband was working in Doha and my daughter and I decided to join him as we have friends living there. My husband booked us into the Movenpick Towers as his usual hotel was fully booked. We had a bad start when we arrived at the airport and the transfer car we had booked took 35 minutes to pick us up. We were offered coffee and given water to compensate and the staff were very apologetic and helpful though. On arrival, check in was very swift, staff were extremely polite and helpful. We were given a room upgrade free of charge, and as requested a cot was brought up to our room with our luggage for the baby within 10 minutes of settling in. The room was spacious and had everything we required. We ordered room service which was nothing exceptional but again staff were extremely friendly and polite. The buffet breakfast offered a great variety of food as did the lunch. Staff couldn't do enough for us and our baby again. There was a children's play area that our daughter loved. The pool is an indoor pool which definitely makes this more of a business traveler suited hotel. The only complaint we had was that there is currently a building in construction next door to the hotel. Our room overlooked this and all night we could hear a very loud generator which disturbed the baby and caused us a disrupted night. Not much the hotel can do about that though. We will definitely be staying again.

Dear Snow White,

I just wanted to drop you a short message to say thank you for your lovely feedback.

I think you're review has depicted our core values that we as a Hotel abide by. Efficient Service, Happy Service and when we make a mistake (your transfer) we do all we can to rectify it.

The noise is really a thorn for us at the moment, and as you've rightly said, it's difficult to address it as it's external. That said we are working on some pamper packs for our guests to try and take their mind off the potential noise.

thank you again for your review, and we look forward to welcoming you again to the Moevenpick Tower & Suites Doha.

warm regards

Shane Jameson

Spent a nite here on 17 October 2011 recently on transit. The room is spacious with a comfortable bed. Had a refreshment, buffet lunch, buffet dinner and buffet breakfast. The spread was good. Except for the check in process which was a bit longer than usual, I was happy with the services provided to us. The experience could be more perfect if free wifi was provided. The price is expensive where for a day you have to pay USD30, whilst on hourly basis, you have to pay USD15 per hour.

I stayed for one night here on a lay-over in Doha. The mini-suite room was great. Very comfortable bed and nice living area with mini-kitchen. I only ate in the buffet restaurant where the food was good although the atmosphere of the restaurant is not that inspiring.
The only area where this hotel is not good is, as others have mentioned, the hotel reception which is small and cramped. The plus side, I suppose, is that you expect the rooms to be not good after you have checked in and then you are pleasantly surprised.
Location was good although it is stinking hot outside and Doha is pretty small so I would guess that most places are well located and you get a cab as you need to.
Only other grumble was having to pay 30 USD per day for internet access. I hate hotels that make you pay to use the internet. If they changed this I would happily stay here again but in the meantime I will look for somewhere that has internet included in the rate.

Dear Guest,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback.
As the Revenue Manager at the hotel, it is extremely important for me to receive feedback from our guest stay not only related to rates but to their overall experience.
It is always a pleasure to hear that our guest enjoyed their stay at our hotel and most importantly to hear their feedback.
In regards to your points to work on for our property, I am happy to inform you that our lobby is an area that we have been looking at and we will be expanding and renovating the lobby in the upcoming months.
This expansion will most definitely take away the small and cramped feeling that you mentioned and we hope to create good impression from the time you walk in the lobby and not only when you get to your room.
In regards to the internet, it is also a concern that I had. It took some long negotiations with all parties involved but I am happy to advise that as of the 1st of November our daily internet rate is decreasing from 100QAR to 70QAR. It is still not complimentary but it is one step closer. But it is also important to note that if you do happen to come by Doha again and stay with us on business we have special business rates that include internet, breakfast and daily pressing.

Thank you again for having taken the time to give your feedback. We do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again at Movenpick Tower & Suites Doha and hopefully not only on a layover.

Kind regards,

Tania Melissa Munoz
Revenue Manager

Spent one night in Moevenpick Towers and Suites on 25th of September. The stay was quite comfortable and the rooms are very clean and more than adequate. Upon checking in, asked for a late checkout and the front desk obliged and provided us with a 4pm check out the next day. Had a corner room (Room 614) and was larger and also very well lit.

Overall a good stay. The only negative part were the following:

1. Expensive Internet. I believe that Business Hotels should offer free internet or atleast
reasonably priced.
2. The Restaurants were very overpriced. This was mainly due to the fact that there is
nothing else in the area. Buffett lunch for 3 people was over QR 400. However,
Breakfast was included with the room.
3. Checked into the hotel pretty late (1015PM) and upon settling into the room, came down
shortly after 11pm to get something to eat. However found all the food establishements i
in the hotel had shut down and only option for food was to order from the limited and
overpriced room service menu.

Room Tip: Go with Rooms ending with 14. I had room 614 and it was a corner room with a lot of privacy and lar...

I was there for a single day and night but it was worth every minute. The rooms were spacious and lovely to sleep in. The food at the top-floor restaurant was amazing.

Excellent hotel.

Nice hotel. Its a tower and therefore purely business and surrounded by other high rise buildings. Very functional but clean and efficient. Rooms are nice as well. Service was fairly bad though. Minibar was not filled after repeated requests.

The Movenpick is great in every respect except the reception area. When I was there so was a deputation from Sudan who were involved in Peace Talks in Doha. There just wasn't enough room for the noisy rabble and they took over the lobby, the coffee shop and virtually every available space on the ground floor. I just needed to get out of there.

I understand the Movenpick are renovating the area at some stage. They will need to!

There are plenty of top class hotels in the area that are much more spacious.

Dear Valued Guests,

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude for taking your time in sharing your thoughts and experience about your recent visit to our hotel.

We admit that we don't have a big lobby and the space is not enough especially during the high occupancy, hence, the management decided to re-construct it. At present, we are on the process of lobby extension and it will be started this year.

However, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience it caused you.

Thank you so much and look forward to welcoming you back at the Tower.
