nice room, 24 hour pool

Posted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: nice view, though a view of downtown would have been nice. great big floor to ceiling windows. 24 hour pool was best for me!
Cons: nothing
Location: small groceries, cheap ethnic restaurants mixed in with working class car, furniture stores
great room, big, clean, nice amenities. bed is comfy. Some people will not appreciate the lower-class working neighborhood but I knew of it beforehand and enjoyed it very much.

Nice, Inexpensive Hotel in Busy Location

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Location, room finishes, and staff were excellent.
Cons: Basically no window, dark, and small room.
I stayed in this hotel after moving out of my Al Sadd apartment while moving back to the United States. The location is decent with lots of places of interest within walking distance. The staff were excellent and the facilities were high end. However, my room was very small and the window faced a wall with zero sunlight. It felt claustrophobic. I did not request a room change because I was busy with last minute arrangements before departing the country, but I was very surprised by how dark the room was and that they would even have rooms that basically lacked a window.

Thank you for your feedback and for choosing to stay with us. We are glad that you liked our location and facilities as well as our superb and friendly efficient team members. Most of our guests have similar feedback about our Hotel due to our proximity to several tourist attractions not forgetting the Hamad International Airport (HIA) as we are located on the same straight road towards the airport. I agree that some would indeed find our room size compact at 22sq.m as they have been designed with practicality and affordability in mind. Featuring all the modern day amenities, most of our guests do appreciate the quality and functionality of our bedrooms. We hope you will be our guest in the future as well when your travel brings you back to Doha. Sincerely, Magdalina Chung

Ramada Encore Doha

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Reasonable price room - good location (for me) Brteakfast also quite good if a little expensive.
Cons: Rooms - Decor slightly tired but the main problem is lack of drawer or shelf space to place clothes etc.
Location: Near to Souk Waqif - plenty of different shops nearby - close to the Corniche
For me this hotel is conveniently located as it is only 10 minutes walk from where I was working. It is also only a 10 minute walk from Souk Waqif for shops and restaurants so again well placed.

Clean nice hotel

Posted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: Clean, good size
Cons: Little construction going on when we we there. But that did not really bother us.
Location: Souk in 10min walk
Everything we have expected was provided. The room and the bathroom were both clean and good sized. The bed was French double size which is a little smaller than normal double bed. The hotel staff were very friendly and check in and check out process were very smooth. The hotel was located quite far away from any sightseeing location so we needed to get taxi to anywhere we wanted to go, apart from the souk. The souk was approximately 10min walk from the hotel and it is do-able if you are used to the heat. We have been to many souks in surrounding countries but this particular one in Doha was by far the best. The atmosphere was a lot more relaxed compared to other souks and there were tens (if not more) of nice restaurants and cafes in the centre of the souk. You could also get there by taxi which is actually really cheap if you make sure to tell the driver to use meter. The first couple of taxi rides, we haggled the price instead of asking for the meter and that turned out to be more than double of normal meter price. But we quickly learnt to only get into taxis with meter. The hotel itself was very good for the price we paid. We were very happy with our choice.

4th Time at This Hotel

Posted May 30, 2014
Pros: For me this hotel is within walking distance of where I was working also very near to the Souk Waquif so good for evenings too.
Cons: The room I was in (5th floor) was a little bit tired decor and fittings wise. More drawer/shelf space needed for clothing.
Location: For me location was excellent for my work and with the Souk being within walking distance evenings are catered for too.
This was my 4th time here and it was a pretty good experience

Good hotel but doesn't have enough car park spaces

Posted May 4, 2014
When I return late I can not find place to park my car. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful but the reality is if you have a car and returned late you may not find a place to park your car.
