stayed at this hotel for 3 days--it is very clean and staff were super helpful. It's centrally locate, so you can walk to the nearby city centre mall. The room is very spacious, but at times, the wifi was really slow.

Back at the Retaj recently on another business trip, I was pleased to see how things generally have improved from previous visits. The first thing to say is that the magnificent, long-serving, concierge Mr Farhan must be worth my weight in gold to this hotel, with his consistently superb customer service. Front desk efficiency is better, partly due to excellent...

The Retaj al Rayyan is a well located, classical hotel, with good, spacious rooms and a nice view from the upper floor balcony. The pool is nice (covered – so if you go during the very hot months, you are protected from the sun, at least). The service is not excellent, though. Though kind, the staff needs an English boost....
