6/10 Good

The hotel itself is good and the staff was very helpful with the problems of the Ehteraz app. The only bad part, and this will be fixed in a few years, is the area is a huge construction zone. It's nearly impossible to walk to the metro station or souk or waterfront because the roads are blocked off, torn up, barricades, fences and construction equipment everywhere. In fact the whole city seems to be under construction. It will be good once it's finished but right now I would not stay in this area.

Perfect stay
Everything was perfect. The front desk staff was so friendly, helpful, and welcoming. I was really impressed with the service! The location was great! It was easy walking distance to the Souk and the Islamic Art Museum. Very comfortable room. Complimentary tea in the lobby is delicious. Actually really loved the toiletries in the room! I would absolutely stay here again.

I had reservations and had to wait for over an hour so they upgraded me to a suite which had a descent bedroom, but a horrible living room with dark and old depressing furniture and not even any decor of any kind just dark and plain. I was not happy and

Smart hotel, excellent location
Helpful, friendly staff with an excellent free airport service.. Good size, smart room with a view to the sea in the distance. Breakfast reasonable including a cooked omelette, evening buffet OK at a reasonable price. You can't really get away from the TVs as they have 7 of them in the dining room but they will turn the sound down if requested. Nice pool area on the top floor. One unusual feature is that a small mosque is just below the hotel on the sea facing side so you can listen to the Imam calling the faithful to prayer at 5am, lunchtime, afternoon and evening which I enjoyed. Excellent location situated a few minutes walk from the sea front promenade, the souk (good selection of restaurants), the Museum of Islamic Art (sensational) and the Qatar National Museum (opens late March 2019).

Property is decent. Rooms are clean, modern and functional. WiFi is free but oscillates between fast and slow internet speeds.
