“Going beyond 5 stars!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

We had a fantastic saty at La Cigale. The restaurant on the second floor and the terrace bar were superb. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I have ever seen. All of the staff that we came in contact with was courteuos and efficient. Then something happened that took our experience to an even higher level. I left a bag of dirty laundry in my room and departed to Saudi Arabia. When I stepped off the plane, I had a text message about it in my phone. The hotel staff inquired where they may send the the found items. I provide the information and it was handled accurately. Thank you La Cigale team. I will be back.

The Sky bar has lots of atmosphere and plenty of people to watch. Best to book a table to guarantee room as it gets crowded. Prices are quite expensive and a surcharge at the weekend, but if there is a group of you its easy to spend it.

Room Tip: Park your own car because valet at the w/e is RIDICULOUS!! After waiting 30mins they told us to driv...

not a business friendly hotel, very slow in check in and check out, rooms are dark and very unfriendly.
it should be rated by a maximum of 3 stars.

A very classy hotel, the staff are wonderful however I wish I could say more for the Management staff which stands out amongst the normal worker. To me this hotel feels to brittle and not one where you feel at home, more of a case of saying, look at me. Nice to know you have Filipino staff working here, as these staff work much better and harder than the management.

Room Tip: Always check if there is refurbishment happening, but rooms are quite sound proof.

Nice place if you book in advance.
The only outside high level bar in Doha.
Don't pick a windy night as it can be very blowy up there, with little protection from the elements.

Minimum charge per customer

Staff could be a little more "smiley"

Splendid service, good food, friendly and professional staff right from the bell boy to the manager on duty.The bed is probably the most comfortable amongst most of the competing 5stars in qatar. You feel at home right from the moment you walk in to your room. There are 2nightclubs that are a must see and with the world cup bid gone through the glitz and glamour is making its way to Qatar I reckon La Cigale is its gateway u can tell by the number of guests Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Rolls parked outside everytime.The airport drop is in a mercedes/Jaguar...need i say more?I have stayed here off an on for over a year.... Love it!

Huge glamorous lobby with an afterthought of a front desk.
Gorgeous gold lifts and room corridor.
Filthy window and drab view.
I disliked the breakfast room and it's layout a lot.
The pool is vast and was most pleasant with good changing room.
One morning we requested a taxi and and we were offered a limo which we declined.
After about one hour we expressed our displeasure to the door staff and stopped a taxi in the street.The loading / unloading front door area was often double parked chaos.
The hotel was not in a good tourist location and taxi drivers were often lost or lying.
Security was in your face around the hotel, in particular the roof bar, which has dress codes but was fun despite the cold weather.
I would not choose to stay there again.
