We were put in this hotel during a layover. We are a family of four and were given a room with 2 double beds which were fine for our children but not for 2 adults. There was only one towel in the room and no hot water for showers in the morning. The hotel looks like it might have been...

..is all around me! Hotel is apparently nice but once in the room you realize that the maintenance is not existing. Fornitures disconnected, safe not working, bathroom licking and dust, dust, dust all over. If you use a cup for the tea, the same dirty cup will wait for you on the table for next days.

Athens, Greece

A very comfortable business style hotel in the West Bay area. Good location to see the high rises or the start of the corniche, but not within walking distance from the main sights of Souq Waqif and Museum of Islamic Arts. However, as with everything else in Doha, accommodation prices are pretty high.

Qatar Airways accommodated us at this hotel due to a changed flight to Adelaide. The room was large and well appointed but showed some signs wear and tear and the air conditioning temperature was a little difficult to adjust. Meals were excellent and the staff obliging.

The staff was friendly and it was clean as can be. When I was there, there was a brief but powerful rainstorm which caused leaks and flooding in the lobby. The room was the type of comfortable business class you'd expect.
