Breakfast is excellent. The...

Excellent friendly staff from front desk to restaurant and room services. I fully recommend people to stay either on business or holidays. All the staff couldn't do enough to help and made me feel welcome. Whatever I needed was made available, including good advice on places to visit.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I needn't have worried. The hotel is situated in the diplomatic district of Doha, an easy walk to either the City Center or the Corniche.
