The Ritz-Carlton, Doha

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was clean and spacious, and the bed comfortable. The food in the club room was delicious, and I loved having my afternoon tea each day. Staff tried to accommodate requests as well as they could, although things were sometimes lost in translation. The pool was clean and a nice temperature. My only complaint was the panels in the room near the entry, bed, and bathroom that had little lit up icons to control the various lights in the room, do not disturb, etc. I wish these came with the option of not being lit up as at night they lit the room enough that I could easily walk around the room and avoid walking into things. It also interfered with my ability to sleep until I reached a point of complete exhaustion.

‘Excellent stay’ ➕ Qatar is not an obvious choice for a holiday, and as Dubai has been over the years it is to an extent a building site, but with this in mind, especially if staying in Doha itself, we found that everything else and specifically our experience of the Ritz Carlton, more than made up for a lack of beautiful vistas and sandy palm tree lined beaches. The Ritz Carlton Club access room was fantastic value for money. Great food quality, international drinks included, staff more than helpful. As with most Ritz Carlton Club lounges, they tend to be quiet and more of a gentle pace. If you wanted something more lively, The Admiral Club on the small marina, that is part of the hotel complex has happy hours and live music. The gym in this hotel would rival any top gym in the UK, brand new equipment and an excellent range of daily classes too. The pool area was quite extensive, well maintained and very well serviced. Whilst there are building works in the area, for us this did not intrude on our holiday, and actually we were more intrigued with the plans ahead for the city and the interesting architecture of the buildings under development. We made a few trips out of the hotel (Taxis are cheap). A walk around the Pearl shopping area and marina was a great afternoon & there are several shopping malls close by, Festival city being one of the biggest and a top level Golf Club close to the hotel which has recently hosted a European tour event. For a week in the sunshine, with excellent service, facilities and food/drink we could not fault this recently renovated hotel.

I've stayed at this hotel twice. The first time I was a bit disappointed with the room as it was a bit old fashioned, but the second time it was amazing. Some (or maybe all) of the rooms have been refurbished so it's all brand new. There are so many restaurants available, room service was really good, excellent food (and loads of options) and and the staff at the breakfast buffet was just lovely! Fantastic stay overall and would definitely recommend it!

Great concept for kids and adults with a nice brunch plus a petting Zoo, a pony for rides and a big bouncy castle. Separate kids corner also with balloons and face painting. Good food including brilliant seafood and and avocado bar. The usual huge variety of other food and drinks makes it an excellent Friday family time albeit the weather was not cooperative for those sitting outside (dust storm, rain and thunder!!)

The staff were very courteous and helpful. We would like to specially thank Magdy from the Spa who was extremely welcoming with a great guest manner. Similarly the staff at breakfast namely Orbelle, Yana and Ridhouane were stand out performers. Thank you all for your hospitality and thank you for acknowledging my birthday with a cake too. Great experience.

I was there in February and March 2018, on business. All was perfect from before entering the hall till the very smallest detail. The professionalism of all staff is outstanding and it is evident that the recruiting criteria are very attentive. The front desk is caring and smart; the main hall is dotted with welcoming personnel ready to help and give directions to incoming guests. A wide selection of outlets and the Porcini restaurant is a must for gourmets. The housekeeping is discreet yet present at all time. The rooms are spacious and feature the highest level of comfort and refined furnishing. Wonderful bathrooms with elegant amenities. Cutting edge technology to command and control any part of the room: from lighting to climatization, from curtains to courtesy night light. Smart TV and plenty of USB sockets. The location is great. The hotel is perfect for leisure as well as any kind of business and event.

The hotel was one of the few I visited during my vacation in Doha, the management (Patricia) (Chen) made us feel part of the hotel and treated us like family. The hotel has been renovated and the club lounge is just awesome, I preferred this hotel to Marsa Malaz Kempinski. Thanks.

Stayed 2 night & celebrated 3rd anniversary. The stay was amazing and room preparation was stunning. I really would like to thank all staff especially Ms. Anne who was following up & preparing this wonderful stay before our arrival.. We enjoyed alot elhamdullah :) .. highly recommended. Looking forward for more visits.

My husband, our 3 year old daughter and I had a 4 night stay at the Ritz Carlton Doha to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Overall we had a wonderful stay. We were upgraded to a junior suite and after 2 nights, due to maintenance issues we then spent 2 nights in an executive suite. Both were fabulous. Lovely little gestures when we checked in. Throughout the stay our little girl was made to feel so special by the hotel staff. Suite was spacious and comfortable. However the jet skis out on the marina were loud, noisy and disturbing. The noise started early in the morning and continued until the evening. You could also hear them when relaxing out by the pool area. Service was attentive and no request was too small. Special thanks to Fion and Alex at the front desk in addressing our concerns and making us feel welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ritz Carlton. Already, planning our next visit.

I have been in Doha for 15 days and almost everyday I come to Admiral with friends for some evening Beer. Sundeep is a star in here. He is a great gentleman. We never feel that we are in a bar where we need to ask for anything. He knows our preference and people in here are treated as friends more than guest. A true class. And when you want to have a cocktail Sundeep crafts something special for you a true legend.
