Best service, amazing staff was extremely happy to stay here. Thanks for making my stay so special. Extra care was provided since I stayed during christian Christmas ad everyone working there was truly incredible. No effort made seemed courtesy was intrinsic for all the staff members! Again thank you!

I stayed here for 3 nights in November 2017. This is definitely one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed at. It really felt like it lived up to the Ritz-Carlton brand and encapsulated everything I think of when I think of staying at "the Ritz." Everything was top notch; from the airport pickup, to check-in, to the state of the room. There was however, an very pressing issue during our stay that almost negatively turned my whole opinion of the hotel. Almost immediately my friend and I noticed that he was being treated very differently from me in terms of the level of service from the hotel staff. One particular incident, a sever repeatedly asked me if I needed anything, but completely ignored my friend who was sitting right in front. After the third time of this happening, I finally felt the need to speak to a manager. The manager was open to my issues and seemed to listen and understand. Whether this issue was an unfortunate series of flukes or a reoccurring issue, I don't know, but the situation did improve after speaking with the manager and we both ended up having a wonderful and truly memorable stay.

As per the captioned, when comparing with the previous ~ ten Ritz-Carlton hotels I've visited among Asia, Middle East, and Europe They are really offering the best Unique, memorable and personal experiences, Especially we are celebrating our wedding anniversary in the Budapest Trip (But I'm afraid the Budapest Ritz-Carlton is the worst RC-hotel) by staying Stopover in this City and hotel within ~ 20 hours. 24-hour club lounge, located at the highest floor with the spectacular sea-view. Their ladies and gentlemen always greeting us by our surname and always say "Happy anniversary" with smiling face. We can feel that they are really enjoy to work in this proud hotel brand, and offering the best professional services. Personal gifts in an upgraded suites, which enhanced our experience in this special celebration. We love Qatar and Doha, because they have the best Ritz-Carlton hotel in this country/city.

Ritz Carlton properties set a high bar and it is very difficult to exceed my expectations at a hotel of this caliber. However the RC in Doha was as close to perfect as a hotel can get. Every single staff member I encountered was smiling and polite. The hotel itself was spotless and the food was INCREDIBLE. I have nothing but praise for this property and those who work there. Well done!

We had very bad experience and treatment in our stay however we booked the hotel hall for our brother wedding First, the stuff in the reception specially someone their called "Ikrami" he stated that he is the manager however he has no idea about managerial skills or ethics. During the chick in i asked him for possibility of upgrade specially we booked more than 4 suits most of the the executive types and the hotel hall, "not an issue but at 4 clock chick in i asked him to give a suit with view as we booked executive for two days and we paid Not for free. He asked me to wait for half an hour to prepare suit with view and he was aware that we have wedding at same night and we need to prepare our self, i wait for more than one hour till 5:15 PM calling the reception and asked them more than 5 times to bring room key and the stuff as the time was running and no one helped us until i went down to reception and let me shout to them all for the first time in the 5 stat hotel reception and wasting my valuable time at special day, in addition to that giving me partial silly view "he was like lied to me and wast my time intentionally" i would like to complain to the highest level because what happen to me yesterday was very sham on hotel like ritz Carlton. Each of my family had the bad treatment as well we felt like we are staying in the hotel for free

I must say that the management, reception, service , rooms very very nice. Business or pleasure, good place to stay. Seems a bit far away from the center but there is a very closed mall for the people who wants to do the shopping.

Without a doubt one of the best experiences I have had. The service was simply excellent all-round, very warm and welcoming . As far the facilitates, they are indeed world class . Not to forget the vow factor I experienced @ the club lounge and pool.and most important the ever friendly , top notch staff very engaging and gracious. Must compliment the management for the efforts they have put in training their front line and blue collar staff , no wonder you truly patronize the Qatari hospitality in true spirits . Look forward to coming back again.

The club lounge in this Ritz Carlton is one of their best in the region - excellent and very well managed with a wonderful team. The lounge and also the rooms have now been renovated to a high standard and look great - the rest of the property is to follow. The pool area is large and has a resort feel to it despite the fact it’s a city hotel. Great service all round and my first choice in Qatar.

I arrived at this hotel which has the most beautiful architecture. The traditional Arabian style with beautiful Aladdin archways sprawl across this single storey resort. When I arrived I was collected from the taxi by a service man with a wheel chair so I didn’t have to walk the distance. He wheeled me to my beautiful room with a fabulous four post bed and a balcony near the pool. The bathroom wasbeautiful. It was marble and timber and spacious. The bed and pillows were so comfortable, you simply sunk into them and slept like a baby. The resort sent a golf buggy to my room so that I could explore the resort whenever I wished. Their private beach is small with private beach beds and a beautiful view of the corniche. The swimming pools and spas are everywhere with one having a swim up bar and others having floating flamingos for the children to float on. This resort is also good for business with many niches made available for group meetings. Doha is very spread out and this means that you will need a taxi to everywhere you go. There are four types of taxis. The blue ones are cheap it they frequently get lost. The white ones are a little more expensive and reliable, the limos are fabulous and still a good price and the Uber’s are fabulous, they do not get lost and are cheap! Would I stay here again? In a heart beat!

Stayed overnight with a friend and was impressed by the service of the staff. Room service was great and pools was amazing. Though the building seems old, you can see how it was maintained well! Hope to be back in there soon when I get back to Qatar!
