Kingsgate Hotel Doha3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had an overnights stopover here. We arrived very late but had a very quick and courteous check in. Our room was very spacious with a kitchen, microwave and coffee facilities. The only problem was this was a non smoking room but it had a lingering smoke smell. This was our only negative of the whole experience. The breakfast was excellent as was the general service. It was only a 10 minute walk to Souq. Would stay here anytime.
Clean, and comfortable. Very quiet hotel. Great for long stays and close to all areas. Only wish the suites had a small washing machine for long stay guests as laundry by outside company adds up. Gym has good equipment and restaurant is ok.
The hotel is located in Old Doha near Souq Waqif.. It is a good place as a lot of stores and restos are in the area.. The room that was provided to me was okay.. I booked it in Agoda that said with City View and a big bed but I was given 2 single beds with almost no window.. I didn’t ask anymore to be transferred as it will hassle and I understand that the receptionist at that time was a trainee.. The room is spacious and lots of cabinets/drawers to use.. It has a kitchenette and microwave which is not usual to most hotels, so this place is good for long stays.. They have the basic toiletries — vanity kit, soap, shampoo and conditioner.. But no toothbrush/toothpaste and/or slippers to use.. I didn’t any slippers that time as I was expecting they have it in the room.. Well, the place is nice and my husband liked it as it was spacious and clean.. We will stay there again..
Hotel is located in good location, near to sea shore. 30-40 min. drive from airport. Staff is courteous. Rooms are spacious. Free Wi-Fi. Team coffee maker available in room. Not much variety in breakfast. No lunch / dinner available in hotel. Few street food type restaurants nearby. ATM machine available across street.
Room atmosphere and hotel locations were normal only. Especially the restaurant menus and the lunch timings were not at all suitable for the asian food lovers. Very few food menus in the lunch and no Asian food varieties in the dinner menu.
The hotel has a centrally good location barely 500 m from the Cornisse, the Museum of Islamic Art and Souk (3 of the most famous and valued things to see in Doha). Nearby there many shops and restaurants. The staff, coming from all over the world, are very kind and very reactive to the small problems (lamp not working, need of an adaptor for the current, small towel not replaced). I was allowed early chech-in. The room and bath room are big, well sound isolated with safe and even a microwave oven. The bed is comfortable. The furniture is a little old but no problem. The aircon is ok. There is a gym, a swimming pool, a sauna , a steam bath. I use all and, even if all the facilities are relatively small, everything was working correctly. Some massages are offered in the spa area. There is no restaurant (except for breakfast not taken) but some cooked dishes , ready to be heated, are available. The value for money of this hotel is very good The only problem I encountered was that by the hotel there is a construction site ( a kind of material depot) and every night (between 2 and 6 in the middle of the night!!) I was woken up for big and very noisy machinery removing stones and other stuff. During the day there was not work at all. On the other hand the rooms in that side have a nice view over the Doha impressive skyline
The Kingsgate Hotel in Doha is perfectly situated for a first-time visitor. Just 10 minutes walk to the Souk Waqif, 15 minutes to Al Corniche and the dhow jetty, 20 minutes to the Museum of Islamic Art, the hotel offers easy and quick access to the major sights of this area of the city. Buses also stop nearby which will get you to the City Center and Katara Village, the airport and other sights along the Corniche. I cannot say enough about the staff: friendly, efficient, welcoming, helpful in arranging tours, happy - pretty much a perfect group of expats handling guests' needs. The breakfast buffet is also impressive, as the hot buffet dishes are changed daily! Even the massive construction going on around the hotel, and the views of some of the rather down-at-the-heels nearby shanties, does not take away from the quiet tranquility of this experience. Highly re3commended for the weary traveler.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Kingsgate...good location and great value for money. Our room had a seating area by the window with a great view over the Doha skyline. Kitchen area with fridge and kettle,comfortable beds and good bathroom with good quality towels. Easy walk to the Corniche and Souq and although there are some works going on nearby we did not find this a problem. Did not use the pool area or restaurant. Staff all very helpful and friendly....would definitely recommend a stay here.
The hotel is located near to the to Souq Waqif, Corniche and Museum of Islamic Art. These places of interest can be accessible within 10-20 minutes walk. However this location is convenient for baby stroller as the area is currently is under road constructions.
Nowadays, Doha is a big construction site. Streets, whole blocks of houses are teared down and reconstructed. Looking around from the windows of this hotel you see the fading old and the modern new at the same time. Though the furniture and the feeling of the rooms are from the '70s, the hotel is clean, and the staff very helpful. The hotel is okay for a short stay.
