    Location. The hotel is in the Souq. You can walk outside the hotel and you are in the middle of the Souq where you can shop and eat in a typical middle eastern market.

    The room floor was not well cleaned or vacumed. There was no toilet paper. The bed was very hard.

  • Single

    Nice design of both the hotel as such and the rooms. Small scale, low key luxury. Unique design. A welcome change from the bigger brand names but still with comparable comfort.

    Erratic Wi-fi access, but the hotel staff did mention an upgrade was planned shortly

  • Single

    Intimate boutique concept hotel (only 13 bedrooms) built into a converted former souk building and decorated in an authentic style. Quite unlikely anything that exists in the country or possibly even the region. Very friendly staff who were approachable and went out of their way to help. Most reasonable hotel mini-bar prices I have ever seen. Location was wonderful - right on the doorstep of the souq and walkable to the Museum of Islamic Art. A terrific change from international-style anonymous five-star hotels across the rest of the region. You walk right into the throng of the souq!

    In-room facilities were quite basic, E.G. there was no in-room information in English, no hairdryer, the toilet seat was loose and only one of the tv channels was working during my visit. I wasn't in the room long enough for this to have major personal impact however. Room was clean but is was obvious that furniture is not moved often for a thorough vacuum underneath. Access problems mean that taxis are reluctant to drop guests off by the entrance and prefer to drop off around the back of the building, meaning a) confusion about where the door is the first time you arrive at the hotel and b) an inconvenient short (90-second) walk across uneven cobblestones, not great if you have heavy luggage

    We loved this hotel. The location was one of the best parts, in addition to it being a lovely hotel with great staff. But the surrounding souk was wonderful. We ate in restaurants nearby and enjoyed wandering the souk and absorbing the local feel for the people who live there. Compared to the 5 star hotels across the bay, there was more to do by this hotel. You can walk to the Museum of Islamic Art (not to be missed). The Cornishe is beautiful. We hired a car (reasonable) to do a city tour and learned a lot about the planned expansion of Doha. We highly recommend Doha and this hotel for a great Qatari experience.

    We will tell friends about it and hope they visit also.

    It is in the middle of the old shopping town where you can enjoy any time walking, shopping, and eating from a variety of international resturants and coffeeshops beside the traditional food of Qatar. The sea is also nearby where you can enjoy walking and visiting the amazing building of the Islamic museum.

    The window of the room is opened to the corridor which makes it impossible to be opened to gain more light during daytime. If opened there will be no privacy since everyone passing will be able to look inside.

    I loved the location in this traditional area and that help us as afamily to be closed from all intersting areas

    The parking issue

  • Group of friends

    The location was the best.

    I've bought breakfast when I booked the rooms however, they stopped us as they thought we did not buy breakfast. It was quite embarrissing to go back and show them the original booking reference..

    The hotel reflected local style and was ideally located in the souk with its choice of eating places.

    Occupying room 1 I received numerous phone calls during the night from other guest(s) who thought they had dialled reception. I suspect I was just unlucky and that this was not a fault of the phone system. Nevertheless very annoying to a sleep starved guest.

    I travel extensively, and this is one of my favourite hotels. The staff are courteous and attentive to every detail. It is an individual hotel of character that stands out from the mass of "internationalised" hotels, the world over. Strongly recommended.

  • Group of friends

    The location of the hotel is perfect, specially for family.

    If we talk about 4stars' hotel mean that we will get great services, but non happy... there are not activities, such as gym or swim pool

  • Group of friends

    Excellent location, right on the edge of the amazing Souq Waqif and a short walk to the Museum of Islamic Art. Just across the car park from the Corniche. Clean, if dark, rooms. Lovely rooftop terrace affording great views into the Souq and out to the Bay.

    No tea or coffee making facilities in the room, no external windows (window onto hallway only). Did not have booking at check in. No gym or pool.
