    « Good comfortable stay »

    Located about 15 minutes away from the airport, this hotel is very comfortable with large rooms and reasonable breakfast platter. The Souq Waif is hardly 5 minutes drive from the hotel and so is the Museum of Islamic Art. The staff is very helpful.

    « "A-1 Nights »

    This topic is not specific to the hotel, however from views of the lobby area, i am not sure it is that spectacular as a property. This topic is specific to the night club that operates within this property, absolutely terrible and to be avoided by any party goer who is looking for a night out in a decent environment. Those who want R&B Music, this place plays it all night, which is fine, however its the crowd and the way the place is managed, just poor, poor, poor. I believe they used to operate in a 5-Star property, but based on the visit, i can imagine that property removed them based on the complaints and the crowd attracted. A location for majority wannabe gangsters. This hotel should lose the A-1 Factor and move towards a better business suggestion.

    « More than perfect hotel! »

    The hotel was much nicer than what I expected. Our room had everything you may need during your stay. It was huge and clean. Rooms look exactly like on their website. I stayed there 10 days, but if you ask me, I can live there :)


    My title says it all. The bass from the nightclub will shake your bed and windows in your room until 2am. The hotel moved me to the first floor after six phone calls to the desk and one call to Best Western customer service. I also had a non-smoking room and every time the AC kicked on, it blew cigarette smoke into my room. So unless either of those things appeal to you, I would find another hotel.

    « A nice surprise »

    Qatar Airways placed my family (including 2-year old son) and I here for a nearly 24-hr layover while returning home to US from vacation in India back in Jan 2014. When front desk saw our young son they gave us a complimentary upgrade to a suite and provided a crib. Though slightly dated and worn down, the two-room suite was extremely roomy and quiet. After check in we enjoyed the complimentary lunch buffet - surprisingly number of choices and all good. Cannot comment on front desk or other services as we did not use them. In any event, from what we saw we would not hesitate to stay here again under similar circumstances.

    « Nice Place to stay »

    Helping staff, location close to the al-Corniche doha, for early morning or evening outing. Also surrounded by number of eating joints and restaurants. Spacious rooms and all things in place in time.Airport pick up available

    « Run! »

    My family and I stayed at this hotel for our 20-hour stopover in Doha on our way to Jakarta. The hotel was assigned by Qatar Airways as part of their STPC deal. This means we paid 125 USD per person for the accommodation, visa and transfer. We could have predicted that this was not a great hotel from the beginning, as we were waiting at the airport arrivals lobby for longer than anyone else. The person responsible for giving us instructions at the airport kept saying the driver was on his way. What's another hour for someone who's been traveling for 14 hours with a 10 month-old baby? So we arrived at this dump and they assign us a room on the 12th floor. Stinking of cigarettes from the elevator lobby and shaking with loud music, we enter a large old room that was vibrating with noise. So we ask to change rooms. We later find out there is a nightclub on the 15th floor!!! But it's not so bad, the bell boy says, it stops at 2 am!!! Next room they showed us on the 7th floor stank really bad probably from a cleaning product that was used to remove the odor of cigarettes. So we patiently ask again to change rooms. On the 5th floor where we could still hear the music from the nightclub, we settle with this considerably smaller room with it's floor still wet (they said it was from the floor cleaning). Night lamps didn't work, there was only one towel at the dirty old bathroom, and trying to find a plug we even ran into some dirt from the shabby cleaning. I could say more and tell you about the crappy food also, but I think that's enough. Bottomline: if you get assigned this hotel by Qatar Airways, run as fast as you can!

    « Very good »

    Spending one night for business. Great people and very kindly. Good breakfast and good located. The souq is 8 minuts walking from it. They took my baggage all the day without problems. Marvelous view from the top.

    « Nice hotel »

    The hotel was nice. It is in front of the islamic museum. The place is about 21 min away from The pearl " excellent location must be there" also 16 min away from Kattara. People are nice here . But location i can give 80% However, the room service is 70%. The food quality is not that much. burger need to be higher quality. I love best western world wide

    « Qatar Airlines Arranged Layover Hotel - superb! »

    I had a 20 hr stopover with Qatar Airways at Doha. It was a nice surprise that I was told by Qatar that I was eligible for a free night at the Best Western with a very reasonable meal allowance. The room was clean and there was a good supply of toiletries. The room was also very spacious, although my room lacked a good view out of the window. The air conditioning was very powerful, and the toilet was clean. I used up my meal allowance provided by Qatar and I had a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner there. The food was of good quality and was tasty, although I wouldn't call it 'special'. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The hotel is 10 mins away from the Museum of Islamic Art, which I spent several hours in. Overall - EXCELLENT.

    « Do yourself a favor: Look elsewhere »

    The Best Western Plus Doha is simply not a good hotel. It is not clean, smells faintly of cigarette smoke even in the non-smoking rooms, has an unresponsive staff, the restaurant is terrible, and to cap things off there is a night club on the top floor that doesn't stop blasting Arabic pop music until 2 AM (good luck sleeping through it if you are above floor 10). Had I known how many problems I would have had, I would have gladly paid for a different hotel entirely even though I stayed here on a free voucher when my Qatar flight was delayed. From what I can tell it is only reasonably convenient (20 minutes or so) from the airport. It is close to the Council of Ministers and Islamic Art Museum, but rather far from the downtown skyline area.

    « Competitive Hotel to stay AT Doha »

    I had a huge room. It was clean, fresh and nice. The breakfast was OK, middle east style. The hotel staff do not smile much but they are efficient and Ready to help. I've checked out in the morning, and AT the end Of the day returned to collect my bag and they made available a room so I could changed and be Ready to my Intercontinental trip. I recommend this hotel

    « Good place but... »

    I stayed at the best western two weeks ago and was marveled by the lobby entrance and the friendly staff, the rooms were spacious too. The gym was a bit of a drab, but you can manage if you are on a holiday. I was not impressed that I was woken up at around 4:45/5am by management for some issues that could have been sorted out at check out. This killed the vibe and confirmed that it definitely that they are not ready for a four or five star hotel. Respect your guests sleeping hours.

    « It was a good time in Doha »

    I liked the hotel room it was nice and clean and the breakfast in restaurants was very good and fresh It also it was not far away from suq wagf you can go by waking and it was not far from Doha Cornish it was nice to visit Doha and saty in the best western plus Doha

    « Dirty, loud, and inconvenient »

    Hotel has a fancy lobby with friendly front desk staff and large rooms but those are the only things going for it. Lots of people were smoking in the lobby, most of the bell hops seemed disinclined to do much of anything, and a drunk man interrupted our check in process to demand rooms for himself and his escort, an event that the desk clerk apologetically admitted was fairly common. I felt very unsafe. There is a disco or something on the top floor but I wasn't going anywhere near it. The room was not clean - there was even open toiletries left by a previous guest - and it was quite run down. We didn't even want to shower there - which was good because there was only one towel. We were kept awake by neon lights flashing outside our room and then awakened at about 4am by a call to prayer at the mosque just outside. Then I had to battle with the kitchen staff to get the breakfast that was included with our room. We had a 9am flight and so needed to leave just before 7am which they told me was "too early" for breakfast (what kind of airport hotel doesn't offer an early breakfast for travelers??) but the front desk managed to convince them to bring us a packed breakfast to our room before we left. It came, without cutlery, but was almost inedible: cold and greasy sausage and potato and a rubbery omelette with no fresh fruit or yogurt or pastry. We got a much better meal on the plane. We paid 50QR for a taxi from the airport because we thought that the shuttle cost more, but it seems that the shuttle is now free. We took the shuttle to the airport in the morning and it was positively packed to the gills with people. Not that there used to be another hotel with the same name - or this one recently changed their name or something - so make sure you have the address with you if you take a taxi. I would NOT recommend this hotel and am shocked that they get to have the "Best Western PLUS" name.

    « Worst ever »

    The staff Joaquim the reception is very rude, there is no profesional and no smile to the guest at all. He really dont know how to handle the guest. First time i stay there, he is the one who handle as well. I gave a second chance to come back, but it still the same! Will not come back there again!

    « It's a room »

    I stayed here during a long (10 hour) layover on Qatar Airways. The room was a place to sleep, but nothing as nice as the professional pictures would lead you to believe. Plenty of space in the room, yet somehow did not feel very warm or personable. Did not try the wi-fi or TV.

    « It's very good »

    I am staying here now. The breakfast is good, the room is clean and roomy (i have a suite). Mine has 2 beds and a sofas bed as well with 2 TV's. My family and I like this hotel. The only complain i have is the room does feel a little cold. I set the thermostat in my room to 18.5 degrees, but woke up with the temp in my room down to 17, so i shut off the air conditioner and since we are in Qatar, with the AC off for 30 minutes the temperature went up to 20 degrees. Service is good too, because my mini fridge was not working and they swapped it for me in less than 30 minutes. Overall, i think this hotel is nice. I was staying at the Amari Hotel in Doha and i really didn't like it because it was too humid. Like i said overall, i recommend it and would stay here again.

    « Terrible »

    This hotel is terrible! Too noisy during the night. People are smoking in the corridor near my room (that was a non smoking room). The room is ok, big and with all the amenities that we need. The staff was also ok. But for sure you have better options in Doha.

    « Good stop over hotel »

    Had a one night stopover here when flying into Doha, this hotel was a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport, the room was very spacious and clean and tidy. Only downside was its very isolated and not much else is nearby, there is a mosque close by. Ate in the buffet restaurant which was pretty good too.

    « only if there is no altervative »

    The hotel is substandard, the rooms make you not feel welcome and appear very cold. If you are on a higher floor you'll have the sound from the night club all night long, plus the mosque next door will you wake up at 4am in the morning. The breakfast is also below average. Positive to say is that the corniche and Souq Waqif are pretty close by.

    « business trip »

    i was there for a couple of days, i visit many hotel specially 4 stars but the most hotel i love to stay is this hotel cause when u enter the lobby, the hotel lobby is amazing and the guest relation girl shes really help full and always smiling her name is Ms. Naida she help the guest start a new day with a huge smile in her face, shes a good asset in this hotel, some of the receptionist don't know how to smile and treat a guest properly. the room is very clean everything is perfect.

    « alone »

    the hotel is really nice and the lobby is big and clean, some hotels are not aloud to smoke in the lobby but this hotel is ok!! that's one of the reason why my friend wants to stay there the guest relation is shes very sweet, and always smile her name is Ms. Naida, shes the best asset of your hotel some of the front desk is dont know how to smile.

    « It was good »

    The hotel was good Nearby suqwagf and cornich But the room was not that good Little bar was not completed as well The chair and sofa was not clean The breakfast was mazing The a staff was kind I like to be in hotel I recommend to anyone to book room in a hotel if they are looking to that noted I founded when I was a sting in hotel

    « Spacious room »

    Spacious room, spacious bed, breakfast ok, lobby little bit noisy. We didnt stay much when here, near to souq waqif, which is one of the main attractions in doha. Walking distance which is always to prefer. We stayed for a few nights while visiting our daughter who is working in Qatar. Hotel can improve, but it is good for location and for price.

    « Stopover stay »

    One of the best hotels in doha. Its just 15 mins ride by cab from airport. Best service at the concierge and in your room. Staff helpful, informative on local site seeing places and does suggest you various options based upon ur budget and time. The hotel provides local tours service or cab to see around doha. Rooms are excellent with all top class facilities. Food was great. morning break or brunch buffet is available. All different types of palates can be satisfied.

    « Close to city center but poor »

    I was there because of a flight delay, the hotel is near to the city souk and corniche, nice position. Personnel is kind and helpful, but rooms and structure are not very clean and the dinner provided was a poor buffet. I think that such a structure could be used in a better way.

    « Good surprise »

    I was provided with this hotel by Qatar Airways as my fly delay and I didn't catch my fly to Miami. There is nothing bad I can say about this hotel. Room was big and clean, nice food in restaurant and very helpful and pleasant staff. I had problems with my email and reception team assisted me to fix my issues. I really appreciate their help and I would definitely recommend this hotel to one who would thervel to Doha.

    « If this is the PLUS, heaven help us all »

    Usually I don't write negative reviews but being kept awake past 12 midnight by banging club music three floors above my room (11th floor) has a strange way of helping the mind focus. I believe that in life there is good and bad so I take this experience as one of those bad experiences that fate has dealt me. Not by choice, the Mrs and I found ourselves in the 'Best' Western Plus Hotel, Doha due to Qatar Airways flight delays which led to a forced layover in the city. They were 'gracious' enough to provide us stranded passengers with food and accommodation at this hotel. Clearly two wrongs don't make a right. The Best Western brand has a global reputation for basic, shoddy and tired hotels. The whole brand itself is tired. I wasn't expecting much from the hotel so I guess I'm not too disappointed. If only the windows and walls would stop vibrating from the loud music! The hotel lobby looks decently furnished and creates a facade of luxury. However, the rooms are anything but. The bed is squeaky and springy. The sofa is worn and has visible tears and coffee (or god knows what) stains. The wooden furniture is scratched and the windows are foggy with dust, preventing any decent views. Oh....the windows are still thumping in rhythm with the bass from the music from the club above. The only redeeming aspect of our (one night) stay was the restaurant. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The Lebanese chef was kind enough to personally cater to our gluten / diary free dietary request and came out to say hello. Great guy. All in all, I'm hoping that you've read this review BEFORE you booked your stay at this hotel. If not, then you're probably also awake at almost 1am in the morning hoping that the walls won't cave in because of the LOUD music. I'm almost tempted to get out of bed, get dressed and go join the party. The Mrs would probably disapprove though. Oh and forget waking up to take a refreshing swim to clear your head and calm your frayed nerves from the club noise of the night before. The pool only opens at 9am and closes at 6pm. If you're a business visitor, you might as well forget using the pool...except you skip lunch at work and rush back to the hotel to use the pool...which is closed to men from 1pm to 3pm.

    « All was good Except..... »

    We were upgraded to a Junior Suite and i should say i was a nice cozy room. however the first impression doesn't please me was due to the fact that, at the reception you are not attended by a greet, a smile or a simple a hello. The look in the face of the guy at the reception was like what are you doing here? Seriously.... I dont know where thats his attitude towards guests being asian or his is tired in working. However, other than that everything went well. Rooms wishe: The Suite which we received was towards another building. the curtains are a bit transparent so it concerns the Privacy of any individual in the rooms. Other than that everything was great!

    « What A Let Down »

    I booked a room on Hotwire and had the unpleasant surprise of it being the Coral Hotel Doha (Best Western Plus) I paid just under £90 it was supposed to be 4 star it was far from that! Reception staff were uninterested the hotel outside was quite dirty and not very well paved, when I checked in I asked for a non smoking room. On entering my room I was hit with a blast of disgusting cigarette smoke I think the people who had the room before had left minutes before still puffing cigarettes! the toilet was dirty and there were little flies round the drain hole. Loud music played until about 1am (thank god for ear plugs) and in the room above me something was running up and down well into the small hours. The only blessing was it was quite the next morning. I went to use the gym which the hotel directory said was on the 14th floor only to find that the whole floor was being refurbished. I went back to reception to enquire where the gym had gone and was directed to the correct floor. The gym had no towels or cups and was not in the best condition the windows and outside area were filthy. Checkout was very uneventful in fact when I asked to change money they said I could only change new notes no older than 5 years (I didn't even know there was a date on them so after looking through my cash a note was found that was satisfactory!) would I stay there again NO not even if it was £20


    Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. -Reception didn't have reservation, and was told to wait and call After an hour managed to check in. -No towels in room when I came in. -Razor thin walls - could hear everything clearly from neighboring rooms -Kept AC off throughout stay but temperature didn't go above 20 C (in March!!) - turning heat didn't help -Bed creaked so much, you couldn't even switch sides without waking up your spouse. -Had to go to front desk twice to get approval to have free breakfast that was on my booking -Supplies weren't topped off after first night Unorganized chaotic parking outside -Construction noises -And to top it all off, the staff has the worst attitude!!!!! It shouldn't be a best western "plus." Have stayed at 2-stars better than this.

    « Noisy »

    I have stayed at this property on several occasions and have always experienced strange noise in the bedrooms. This weekend I think I found the reason. Yes, there is a nightclub on the 14th floor but that is not the main problem. I noticed that I was getting sounds of children, parents and hairdryers. Not only sounds, but I even had the smell of hairspray. I decided to investigate the actual construction of the building. It has the basic concrete structure with honeycomb shape of rooms facing outwards. Then place a steel window frame structure over the entire face (without sealing the individual room walls/floors/ceilings to it) and hey presto you get a selection of pods with an outside shell which offers no sound protection. Anyone with weird tendencies and access to flexible cameras could easily view adjoining rooms by slipping the scope around the wall, had they the inclination By the way, the food quality has dropped considerably.

    « Disappointing and a little bit disgusting. »

    Very poor experience. Room booked for a family of 3 but sofa bed not made. I asked for this to be done 3 times but it didn't happen. When I eventually opened up the sofa bed myself it was in a disgusting state. Eventually our room was moved but into a room where the beds were barely big enough. I was told my deposit of 200 Riyals would be returned to my credit card straight away but this has not happened over a week later. My emails have not been replied to. Very disappointed in what should be a good hotel.

    « Solid Value »

    Recently stayed 3 nights in Doha as a tourist. The hotel was clean with a large room and the hotel was in a pretty good location walking distance to the museum, waterfront and old Souk area. now with Uber in town its really convenient to get nearly anywhere without a car for really cheap. The only downside we noticed was they have no heat in the rooms even though it got a bit cool at night! Free breakfast is also a plus for very reasonable rates.

    « Mixed impressions.... »

    So on arrival to the hotel the staff were very pleasant. Great transfer and pick up from the airport and the receptions is very modern, full of fresh flowers and pleasant to see after a long flight. My room was very spacious, great size living area and bed. The cleaning was average, different days would leave something new to find - either cleaning products left behind in my room, my stuff moved for cleaning and not put back or just certain toiletry items not replaced. Not major things in the grand scheme of things. The restaurant was great and the food was pleasant and different each day. The staff were very helpful and nice to deal with. The negatives to this hotel is I found it very noisy. The room I had you could hear everything from outside, to the lift and just general noise. I also had a couple occasions where I got woken by staff bringing stuff to my room that I hadn't requested also another occasion where another guest called my room - I believe this was due to a member of staff providing him with my number. As a single traveller on this occasion, it didn't provide me with confidence or make me feel safe - especially when the reception staff were not interested or wanted to look into this for me. For me this hotel is a mixed bag but overall a good hotel. Just could do with a few improvements and it would be great!

    « Excellent hotel to stay in Doha »

    Previous known as Coral hotel, Doha. Now it is renovated and very nicely maintained by best western plus hotel. They have big rooms living and bed room together. Big clean wash rooms. Provide amenities in bathroom. Every room has 2 TV, provide water boiler along with team coffee, mini fridge and bar, room safety locker, iron with iron stand. Complimentary buffet breakfast, swimming pool, jacuzzi on rooftop, steam, sauna and spa on payment available. There is one club on 13th floor named as cello bar.

    « My first impressions of this hotel were not great, however, by the end of my stay I would recommend it. »

    Upon arrival there were no rooms ready so I was placed on the 14th floor. There was some renovation work going on so there was a lot of banging which prompted me to visit the pool for a swim and sun bathe... The pool is more for...'relaxing' rather than swimming as it has different sections to it so you couldn't do a lap. The outside area is unsteady as some of the tiles are loose and there were no tables or loungers out there, (although one of the stand members was happy to put a chair out there for me.). Overall the place seems a little forgotten and unused. I didn't visit the gym but I did go to the spa. It looked very relaxing and had a nice ambiance but was highly over-priced: 450 Qatari Reals for an hour's massage, which, at the time of conversion was £85! My room was fine, it had a separate sitting area and the bathroom was well stocked with complimentary toiletries. The biggest issue was that floor 14 is below the nightclub, it was a Friday (The Qatari Saturday night) and the music from it was very loud and went on into the early hours so I didn't have a very good sleep. The next day, feeling pretty unimpressed with the hotel, I asked for my room to be changed to be more quiet one. The staff were extremely obliging; by the time I'd finished breakfast, I had a new room with amazing views. The staff member on reception personally showed me the room and arranged for a porter to move my bags for me. I was very grateful and had a great sleep! The breakfast is really nice, varied each day there is absolutely everything: salads, hot local food, sweets, pastries, cooked breakfast, fruits, breads, an egg cooking station, a coffee machine for mocha / cappuccino etc and cold drinks. The location is in the old town. There is a lot of building work going on nearby so, at first, it didn't seem like a great location. However, it is walking distance from Souq Waqif (A must visit - in the evening in particular - it is beautiful and you can walk here along the river side with amazing views of the sky rise buildings in the centre of Doha. Lot of cafes, restaurants, local food and markets). It is easy to flag taxis down from the hotel - the staff will call one for you. Overall: Positives Breakfast Staff: very helpful providing me with a map, booking taxis, offering advice about where to go, providing an adaptor for me etc. Quality of rooms Overall feel of the hotel Location - to Souq Waqif Negatives: Can be noisy nearer the nightclub The pool The cost of spa The renovations (though of course these need to happen) Stairs (As with a lot of places in Doha, it is difficult to navigate the emergency exits as they don't seem to lead out to ground floor so, apart from the risk in emergency, you will be stuck waiting on the lifts!)

    « Good place with good location »

    A good place to stay some days in Doha. The place is very well located, some minutes from the Cornishe, and 5 to 10 minutes from the soque by foot. The breakfast is good with a good choice as buffet. The rooms are ok for an hotel in its category, with good room space.

    « So so »

    Staffs are excellent, waited for me to pick me up from the airport although the line was long at the immigration. The command of the English language is limited at the front desk, but fluent. They gave me a suite, but it was a disappointment. A ver large room with a separate sitting area. Furniture needs replacement, but the queen bed was comfortable. The complementary buffet breakfast is very good, the bathroom had no towels, but they brought me a few towels when asked, but they were not very good quality towels. My overall stay for 2 nights was quite pleasant, but next time I would prefer to stay at a better hotel.

    « A lot to improve by the staff but, in general, decent hotel »

    The hotel itself was nice. However, organisation, preparation and general professionalism in the hotel by its staff was a horrible experience. Nothing was prepared for late night arrival of 3 guests. We had to wait over 1 hour to make things right without any apologies from the member of the hotel. Also it's worth to mention that the "swimming pool" is not as someone would expect as there is certain hours when you can use it based on whether you are a male, female or a child.

    « Hotel OK, not ideal for a tourist's »

    Staff are unfriendly and clueless at times. Reception area is total chaos. Porters don't seem capable of doing their job and are normally just standing around in the reception area. I was booked into this hotel by my company for a business trip. I stayed on the 8th floor and my room was close to the lifts which was annoying as i could constantly hear the lift bell day and night. My room was ok, pretty tired looking and shabby. Wall paper starting to come off the walls. Probably one of the worst hotels I've stayed in Doha. Room service food extremely average and poor choice of food on menu. Room was fairly clean, bed was comfortable. The rooms are really needing to be modernised. Its ok for a short business trip. I would advise tourists to stay in the west bay area as there is no good eating venues close by. WIFI is free, but not very good.

    « Not My Choice Hotel »

    It was very unfortunate that I did not plan to visit Doha nor stay in this hotel. My flight was misconnected and I had to stay for one night - with complements from Qatar Airways. The hotel room assigned was large with a separate living room. But it looked very dated and badly needed a good refurbishment. We informed the airline to retrieve our luggage from the airport and had it delivered to the hotel. We had specifically informed the hotel to expect our luggage delivery. The hotel received a call from the airlines while we were out to explore the Souq Waqif but when we returned to check on the status, we were not given a proper update. Everything seemed so messed up. The staff at the front desk were not friendly or helpful. We were given the 'it's not our fault, go to the airline' kind of attitude. Thankfully the luggage arrived after almost 6 hours of waiting and I only had to stay in this hotel for less than 8 hours. Despite this unhappy incident, I must give some credits to the hotel restaurant. We were given some meal allowance from the airlines and ordered a la carte from the menu. The portion for the main dish was too big - more than enough to share with 2 adults. The service and food was good. What an experience!

    It is within walking distance of the Museum of Islamic Art and Souq Waqif. Our room was perfect; we had a lovely living room area and it was very clean. They do have an Arabic nightclub on the top floor; my friend and I checked it was a fun experience. Staff was helpful and breakfast was very good. I would recommend staying here and I would probably stay here again.

    « Not very 4 star-ish »

    It's a typical business hotel, all the basic facilities are available but still bathrooms (especially bathing area) is very congested with only single top shower. You can hear people talking in adjoining rooms, reason being a wooden panels near curtains and little empty space between them or may be walls are thin, either ways you can clearly hear what people are speaking in adjoining rooms if they talk in a normal volume. Foodis just fine. Staff is good. Overall for other stuff it's good but expensive according to the facilities.

    « First visit »

    it is my first stay at the best western plus in doha and the hotel is in the center of the city, was staying with breakfast and it was more than good with many varieties and reception is helpful in any request and it is a good value for money.

    « Good place for the near future »

    I stayed in the Best western Plus for Business, the hotel is still under refurbishment. The breakfast room is ready, nice servings in large variety, lots to choose from. The rooms are huge 40m2 plus but old, they are doing it room by room and mine wasn't to the new standards. The swimming pool was out of order so was the gym, and yes under refurbishment. The rooms come with free wifi, but it is so slow you rather find another solution. So for the near future a great place but take your own data device.

    My worst stay in a hotel ever.. It's cheap with spacious rooms and friendly staff but not professional. Everything else is very bad: - Cleaness - Noisy - Dark rooms, lighting is very bad in most of the rooms - Food has bad quality (room service) - Restaurant, only one restaurant that offers only buffet for all meals, not a la carte - They don't answer the phone at night (not midnight neither the housekeeping nor the reception I don't give it more than 2 stars, sometimes even 2 stars hotels are better

    « Do not make this horrible mistake by staying here »

    We were visiting the Qatar Boat show and this hotel was their partner, unfortunately for all guests. The hotel had no idea about the event. The staff was very unhelpful during every stage of staying there. The reception at check-in, the logistics, the staff, the room service, the overall hotel is an absolute joke. We had such trouble getting our complimentary rates as guests of the show. We had to put up an argument that lasted for 5 hours on covering the accommodation because of the poor communication of this hotel. Elif, the hotel manager is especially the one to blame and clearly lacks basic hospitality qualification and intelligence. Basically, she did not think it was her responsibility to check the names of guests who are checking in against the list of names given to her by the boat show organizers as their guests. She ended up booking different rooms for the guests and left the prebooked rooms empty. Then charged the guests for BOTH! It was an absolute joke. This person should be nowhere near a hotel. We paid the price of her stupidity and thankfully left to stay at the Warwick, an affordable choice at a busy time and excellent in accommodating their guests.

    « Don't Stay At This Hotel - as a Free Qatar Airlines Transit »

    I did not select this hotel, it was provided as a complimentary transit accomodation by Qatar Airlines. I am a Qatar Airlines frequent flier and normally Qatar Airlines transit hotels are good, punctual with pickups and include even early morning breakfast ...... none of this at Best Western Doha. In future if this is the only option I would fly different airline through Emirates. There was no-one with a signboard (as normal) to meet our flight, we had to go to airport information who called the hotel. We (several folk travelling separately) then had to wait a good while while they looked for late stargglers who did not show. There was no breakfast provided. The room was nice and spacious but sleep impossible as seems there was a disco or similar roudy event right outside. The morning wakeup call to get to airport was late (thank goodness I had already been wakened by my telephone alarm), checkout disorganised and we had to wait in the bus to the airport while they again looked for stragglers. Some passengers waiting in the bus were becomming nervous about delays to get to airport for flights when at this point in the bus they started a shambolic administration of checking who was in which room. Very poorly organised and delaying. An inefficient and poor reflection on Qatar Airways and Doha airport. Will think about an alternative airline (of which I am frequent flier) and UAE transit as an alternative.

    « Worst hotel we have ever stayed in »

    Unfortunately, the photos featured on the website are not a true representation of what we found at this hotel. The room was smelly, extremely tired looking and basic essentials were not provided. We did however get quickly moved to a different room when we stated that we were not happy. The second room was better, however the strange wall taps in the bathroom (which had to be turned in order for the shower to work) leaked and flooded the room within a short space of time. This was fixed, but they did not feel the need to clear up the bits of plaster or broken tiles after they had finished sorting the problem.

    Even it's for a night, I'm glad that I have stayed at this BWP hotel. I had an unpleasant experience at Kuwait Airport due to a flight delay and when I reached at this hotel at night instead of at noon, I was greeted well at the reception and the! It made my day! Breakfast was plenty and great, and what I love most was the Halawa..superb! The supervisor from Nepal allowed me to bring some Halawa back to my room and made me feel like a 'Queen' ...Tqvm.

    « Check if major renovations are ongoing BEFORE you book!! »

    Question: what major brand hotel would accept new bookings while 24 hour major renovations are being undertake? Answer: Best Western, Doha. Jack hammering and power tool drilling throughout the night. Lame management that cannot supervise or otherwise control a contractor. Staff instructed to advise guest that the noise is coming from the building next door. That didn't explain the vibrations.....departed a five week stay after one week

    « party time »

    I visited last weekend this hotel and had great fun in their night club. Amazing live Arabic music and ambience. Hotel is brand new, rooms spacious and I had in their spa the best massage singe3 I came to Doha.


    I spend 2 days in this property. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room spacious and modern decor. Huge lobby and beautiful restaurant with great buffet served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great Value for money!!!!

    « Business travelers better think twice »

    I travel to Doha every month and I wanted to stay at this hotel since I had heard good comments about the comfortable rooms and service. The service provided by the staff in general is very good and junior staff such as the waiters's room service and concierge is extremely good and they are very polite and courteous. unfortunately, the managers in this hotel is way over their heads with their attitude's. Basically, they will attend to you or even smile/talk to you depending on your face, outer appearance or the nationality. I would like to mention in particular the manager at the reception who's name is Mr. Basouny. i was told he is the operations manager. I had asked for assistance to scan a document and he simply ignored me and requested the reception lady to tell me that it cannot be done. mind you, the lady was on the verge of helping me, It was very obvious that this gentleman didn't know anything of customer service and i'm surprised he is even working as manager. The restaurant manager is even more worst. he simply stands near the kitchen entrance and keeps staring at you from top to bottom. Not even a greeting or a smile. These so called "managers" however jump on their feet and greet all the GCC clients with no reason and conveniently ignore all other guests. its so obvious and makes you feel sick. nevertheless, my compliments on the junior staff again as they are extremely nice and always very courteous. its sad that its not complete with the unprofessional managers they work with.
