Overview

A glamorous stay at a luxe boutique hotel with rooftop pool in the Qatari capital of Doha on the Persian Gulf

The Lowdown

For a seriously stylish stay in the richest place on the planet (according to Forbes), this perfectly positioned and rather glam boutique hotel seals the deal. Most standout, though, is the location – right in the heart of the Qatari capital’s Old Airport area and within easy distance of the glittering shopping malls, must-see museums, and impossibly good souks.
With ultra-chic but welcoming interiors and awe-inspiring views of Doha’s futuristic skyline from the wonderful outdoor rooftop pool, this little bolt-hole is big on attention to detail. There’s a well-equipped gym for daily workouts, a great restaurant for Arab and Indian-leaning menus, and a bend-over-backwards level of service from the charming hotel staff.
Days can be spent riding the hop-on hop-off Yellow Doha Bus to get to grips with the city, snapping up elusive bargains at the Gold Souq and Souk Waqif, and being awed by the exhibits at the iconic I.M. Pei-designed Museum of Islamic Art.
Once done with sightseeing, retreat to your spacious room, which comes with sleek fashion-forward décor, rich dark woods, lavish soft furnishings, and all the mod cons you could possibly want.

Doha Airport Hotel

I had a 20-hour layover in Doha and wanted to explore the city a bit. With an early flight, This was a good location for staying near the airport. The AC was great in the room. The room was small however this was expected based on the room description. Uber drivers were in the area and had more than a 5-minute wait for a car. If ever back in Doha and needed a place near the airport, I would stay here again.

A blast and a complete entertainment. The band whose playing was without a doubt have a maximum performance level and didn’t fail to always engage the audience. With the right combination of comic, songs and choreography, I am impressed to the maximum.

Will definitely come back and look forward to another entertaining night.
