uI often stay in this hotel and it as got better, they are also listening when you complain and try to react. The pool is quite nice and relaxing and if you like chocolate you will love this hotel. The sky terrace bar is nice to take a drink from however it would be nice if the security men smiled a little more as they look very intimidating.

I stayed at La Cigale a couple of nights and even I had visited the website and seen the pictures, the hotel is even more beautiful!!
The entrance is amazing and there is staff welcoming you all the time!! The rooms have all number of details and an impressive pillow menu. The room are spacious (so many closets!), comfortable and with all the luxurious details: chocolates, toiletries…
The selection of food outlets is so extensive that I decided there was no need to try elsewhere: they have an impressive buffet with a huge range of food types, a romantic Italian restaurant, Mediterranean… as for chilling time the Shisha garden is lovely!! I also enjoyed very much the rooftop bar with amazing view over Doha and all type of cocktails. In my next visit I look forward to go to their nightclub, ladies nights at Madison Piano bar was a blast and this hotel definitely know how to put fun in your stay. To top it all there is an impressive swimming pool & spa with Jacuzzi and steam room.
La Cigale is a luxurious and welcoming hotel and it will definitely be my destination again when travelling to Doha.

On several occasions now I had my night spoiled by inexplicable rules and rude staff in hotel. Staff from one section of the hotel advise you to do one thing only to be very rudely refused assistance by staff from another section of the hotel. Bottom line, even with limited entertainment facilities in Doha, the stress that dealing with the staff there (including management) causes is simply not worth it. Go elsewhere customer service is actually understood.

Went here the other night, we went to go to the bar on the roof top, which looks absolutely amazing! It was just such a shame that when I went I was not able to enter the bar as I am 20yrs old :/ i was told you could drink at the age of 18 here like at home. So sadly and annoyingly I was not able to experience it, I am coming back in November when it am 21 and i hope I can give a 5* rating. I just wanted to write this on here, so other visitors are aware. Looked beautiful of what I saw :(

Lush property with a 5-Start service from all aspects. Have never stayed in the hotel but visited the various rooms for corporate purposes and it is nice, very well furnished with all the requirements of a hotel stay. More a a business stay property as of the location in the heart of the city, would recommend families and couples to opt for a beach style hotel.

This property has some very good restaurants in Italian, sushi and International. Have eaten in all, and they are all very good with a high quality of service and food. This property takes pride in its services and quality. There are two cafes here, where in me you can sit back and smoke a Shisha, or in the other just sit back and chat away, both are very good and again with great quality sweats and coffees available. No fault at all, and cost wise, well it's reasonable for the high quality offered and the fact your in a 5-Star property. Well visited by local residents.

Probably some of the best bars and clubs in this property. Little bit more expensive than some of the other properties, but not by much. Sky view recommended in the cooler months as an outside bar, or shall I say chill out zone that livens up at around midnight, pricey and you must book on the weekends, but a great night out. Piano bar is indoor, and more orientated towards Arabic music, again need to book on the weekends. You will find with both these bars here are minimum charges at the weekend, but such is the normal, and usually not too bad when your out for a night in the place. Finally there is a club called seven, visually it is very nice, crowd is mixed, and generally a good night out, however book if you want a seat or table and do it in advance as ths place does get busy on the weekends. Gents expect to pay a 200 entry to the place, and no issues really on getting in as a group of lads, just arrive a little earlier to get a decent spot at the bar and ensure entrance. DJ is not that great, the other bars have better music options, strange but that's the way it is. You do get a few muppets in this place, but all mouth and that's about all.

Beautiful hotel, very comfortable, great service, great food, and I hear they have one of the best night clubs in town, as didn't have the time to visit it.
In the middle of the city, ideal for business travellers, Breakfast buffet is really rich, also the dinner. Did not have lunch there though.
This is my favorite hotel in Doha.

My first trip to Qatar and Doha and the La Cigale is fantastic. From the level of service from everyone at the hotel, to the comfortable beds, quiet rooms - good internet service is always important when you need to stay in contact with back home - and the buffet breakfast, more food than anyone could ever want. I utilized the driving service out of the hotel and the driver was courteous, spoke beautiful English and drove safely - in a city that is full of aggressive crazy drivers. Easy to get a taxi to go places and the hotel is known when you are in need of getting taxi back to the hotel.
