Best places to say in Doha

Qatar’s capital is full of excellent accommodations, no matter what your budget

1. Ramada Encore Doha

If you’re looking for something basic and well-located, check into the Ramada Encore. It is a few miles away from the city centre, with the souk and museums a short walk away. It’s essentially a business hotel, so the rooms here are more cosy than spacious. But the service is great, the Wi-F is free, and they have an indoor pool and fitness centre to work away the day’s stress. This 4 star hotel Ramada Encora Doha has all the modern amenities to make your stay comfortable. The proximity to Doha Fort and other landmarks of the city make it ideal for a family stay. Book online and choose from the multitude of AC rooms in this hotel so that you pick one to suit your needs.

2. Liberty Suites Hotel

For pure ease of movement, and if you’re planning on an extended stay in Doha, try the Liberty Suites Hotel. The apartments here are incredibly well stocked – their kitchens are fully equipped with refrigerators, microwaves, and washing machines besides the usual lot of kettles, sachets of tea, coffee and creamer. However, don’t let that stop you from trying out the restaurant. The food is excellent, both in taste and presentation. The hotel is just a few minutes away from the Athletes Village for the 15th Asian Games and you can also try out the restaurants and stores located there. Book into the Liberty Suites Doha when you plan a family vacation to Doha next time. It is well equipped with modern facilities to make you feel comfortable.

3. W Hotel & Residences

When a hotel showcases something called the WOW Suite, there’s a strong chance you’re in for something special. At the W Hotel & Residences, that’s almost a guarantee. First, there’s the awesome design—all circular walls, bed canopies made out of fringes, 400-thread-count sheets, fabulous views from the bed, and triangle-shaped corner rooms. The Extreme WOW Suite comes with its own massage room and a pretty neat hexagonal tub with its own TV. Consider it your (very fancy and futuristic) home away from home. Other not-so-plebeian comforts include mixology sessions at the bar where you will be served molecular gastronomy-inspired cocktails, and chandeliers that act as reading lights over your bed. Book into W Doha Hotel & Residence for a stay during your trip to Doha. It is a five star hotel with all world class facilities that make it ideal for your stay. Book online for advance booking.

4. Four Seasons

The good thing about staying at a luxury hotel is that you rarely have to do anything, including plan your vacation. The folks at Four Seasons take pride in doing that for you. The Moorish-style 17-storey waterfront hotel is Doha’s pride and an easy choice for luxury travellers, especially those with kids. From dhow rides at sunset to a bunch of adrenaline-charged activities for the family – the hotel will tailor itineraries to your needs. This way you can indulge yourself at the Library Bar and Cigar Lounge, knowing fully well that the morning session of dune bashing and afternoon lunch in a tented camp has brought the kids a night of undisturbed sleep, and you another cocktail. You may take your pick from Premium Rooms, Deluxe Rooms and Twin Rooms in Four Seasons Doha. All the rooms are well equipped with world class facilities and superior stay.

5. La Cigale Hotel

It’s certainly an imposing structure on the Doha skyline, and what it offers is equally impressive. The rooms, with their massive windows, are designed to look and feel larger. The restaurants and cafes offer great meals. The sushi bar is fantastic and the Le Cigalon restaurant serves perfect Middle Eastern desserts (try the ice cream made out of a ground orchid powder). Of course, the 20-storey building must make use of its terrace, and the Sky View Lounge on the 15th floor opens out to a panoramic view of the waterfront fringed. It helps that most of the rooms offer this view as well. La Cigale Hotel Rooms are ideal for business as well as personal stay. They are unique with air conditioning , internet and all top notch facilities that you may expect from such hotels. Book online and get special discounts on seasonal bookings.

Insider Tip:

To make the most of your trip, stay on or near The Corniche, the strip along the waterfront that’s choc-a-block with boutique hotels, restaurants, cafes and stores.
