This was my first trip to Qatar and I am very pleased I chose this hotel. The service, decor and overall standard were excellent. The breakfast selection was vast and the complementary cold drink upon arrival was a really nice touch! (Non Muslim
guests should note that there is no bar - although there are in a neighboring hotels just two minutes away).The tiny pool is lovely but it is for a plunge not a swim. I feel Wifi should be free in all rooms these days and not just in the foyer. Apart from that, I am happy to have found this lovely hotel in Doha for future short breaks. I will recommend it. Thank you all.
The night staff who welcomed me at 5am for my check-in were plain amazing! After a long flight all I wanted to do was get some shuteye and these guys were not only blazing fast in getting me into my room, their level of professional courtesy,
positive attitude and just going above and beyond in terms of customer service was really the most outstanding part of my stay. The room was spacious and clean, good breakfast buffet, good value for $ and convenient location.
Swimming pull was owe full, I could not use it at all, there were lots of kids even at 11:30PM and sometimes with women in full cloths.
Breakfast time and area facilities was not planned for the number of guests lived in the hotel.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
If you get a chance to go for breakfast, is not bad.
