Quase perfeito!Posted Jan 28, 2015 on Hotels.com
Simplesmente quase tudo perfeito! Só o cafe da manha que era caríssimo. Do mais, excelente hotel, localizado no melhor ponto da cidade - dentro do Souq Waqif.

Excellent hotel and locationPosted Jan 27, 2015 on Hotels.com
We loved this beautiful hotel. It felt like we were the only people there: we never saw any other guests! Our room was gorgeous and had a beautiful view of the Corniche, a dolphin show, the new city across the bay, and the Islamic Art Museum (which unfortunately is closed on Tuesdays so we didn't get to go). The room was exquisitely decorated and had a very comfortable bed. We would have loved to have stayed longer, but we were just there for a long transfer (less than one day). The hotel's location next to the souq and the Corniche was excellent, we were able to just walk and walk for hours near our hotel. The friendly staff helped us to arrange rides both to and from the airport, offering us different price points as well. The hotel's driver was super friendly. Unfortunately the staff did send us to the Islamic Art Museum (closed every Tuesday and it was Tuesday), but we advised them not to tell people that on Tuesdays anymore. The only other disappointment was that the giant rainforest shower head in the bathroom wasn't working. The other shower head was excellent though (great pressure) so it wasn't the end of the world. If you need a hotel relatively close to the airport and want to be able to walk around and see interesting sights, this hotel is a great option!

Smallest of the bunchPosted Jan 21, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, small and intimathotel with spacious rooms. Close to everything.
Cons: Noisy air-con! TV channels to include BBC /CNN. Difficult for taxi drivers to find.
Location: Close to Museum of Islamic Art and Dhow boat harbour. Easy to get to Corniche. And of course, in heart of souq area close to many eating options.
This hotel is the smallest of the "Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels" group, all situated in the souq area. In our 3 night stay we hardly saw another soul, despite it being fully booked. The facilities in the other hotels are available to guests, including the pool, a 5 min or so walk away. All the other hotels are bigger and less intimate (we went to three of them for the pool, a restaurant, and a pharmacy). The rooms are spacious, and well equipped, including a pod coffee machine and huge TV with 73 channels (mostly in Arabic). The bathroom includes a walk in shower with the biggest shower head ever seen! The bed is super comfortable, but I found the air conditioning to be noisy, even when turned off! The staff are friendly, and very helpful, but the restaurant, which only serves breakfast, is dingy with no windows, and we didn't eat there - there's lots of choice in the souq close by. The hotel is hard to find if you're not familiar with the area ... Taxi driver tried to drop us at the Arumaila, but it's just round the corner from there, on the road with the Falcon hospital, next door to Al Jasra hotel and Argan restaurant. As other guests have mentioned, there's construction nearby, but you can't hear it, and that's not limited to this area ...there's development all over Doha! The souq is a great area to stay in, and I much preferred it to the downtown high rise area (which you can walk to from here, along the length of the Corniche).

Une nuit d'escalePosted Jan 6, 2015 on Hotels.com
Juste pour une nuit lors d'une escale entre deux avions. Hotel en limite du souk. Personnel très accueillant.

Great hotel, good value but...Posted Dec 22, 2014
The hotel is lovely, roomy and the staff is attentive. The location is odd, and the small dining area is not really attractive. It is part of a small chain and if you use the facilities of the other places, all of which are within 5 minutes walk, it is more than ok. But then why not choose one of the hotels within the chain, cause overall the chain does a great job. Finally the hotel is next to a major construction project. You do not hear a sound, but it is dusty and noisy outside.

Excellent hotel, walking distance to Souk WakifPosted Nov 29, 2014
Overall, great value for money. Rooms are very nice and the staff are super friendly. Five minute walk and you are in the Souk. The location is a bit difficult to find or explain. Also, there is construction near by, and it is noisy. The noise stops at night though.

From Mina to MusheirebPosted Oct 11, 2014
For 3 days of rest and reflection after Hajj, I could not have chosen a more tasteful and gracious reception than this exquisite small hotel. Location, staff, attention to detail made me feel welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was quality and delicious. Spa at next door sister hotel is excellent. Wish I could be there again soon.

Excellent boutique hotel in the heart of DohaPosted Sep 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
excellent location, excellent ambiance! excellent views of Doha's West Bay's skyline........... only negative - construction going on in the surroundings - noise was not a problem however, the sight of the ongoing construction was not the most appealing.
