Rating by category:
Lack of properly trained staff, a functioning business centre, showers that did not flood, one rather than two-three main entrances to the hotel, etc, etc.
Location is ok. Room was very large and comfortable. Bathroom was very large with seperate shower and tub. Swimming pool area very good.
The internet is not free which is ridiculous for a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was very poor and very expensive. 100 Riyals and no cerials and no hot food whatsoever. Smoked salmon and cold cuts for breakfast are you kidding? Where were the sausages scrambled and fried eggs, beef bacon etc? Tv was very annoying whilst trying to watch a program it was reverting every 10 minutes back to the main menu. Start again. Water takes at least 10 minutes to run hot. After that it is very good with plenty of pressure
Outstanding presentation and functionality -we upgraded to "executive style" accomodation (for a relativley modest amount) which proved to be one of the best value packages during our holiday
Hotel location and staff
The current building works outside my window keeping me awake all night Food quality was only average Would not recommend at this time until building works completed
I been there short visit I like the city
Very nice place
Nothing really, my whole stay was a total mess.
1. The hotel is surrounded by 4 construction sites. The noise starts from very early morning and it doesn't stop till evening. I wasn't aware that I need earplugs to stay there, but I suggest the hotel offers them complimentary. 2. It took me nearly an hour to find the hotel when coming from the Airport.During that time I called the Concierge for location four times and every time I received different guidance. Subsequently,I had 3 business meetings at the hotel with Doha residents. All of them used about an hour to find the location. 3. The furniture in the room look really cheap - especially the sofa and the computer table. The washbasin top in the bathroom is made of the chepest white plastic, which besides being badly scratched already at this brand new hotel, had one whole chipped corner on the left side. That interior fit out is much more suitable for budget Accor Hotels, rather than Intercontinental. 4. The service in that hotel is very slow and terrible. Every time I made a telephone call requesting something, I needed at least 3-4 follow up calls to make sure I was understood. Simple things like matches took 30 min to deliver. 5. On my arrival the mini bar was completely empty - no refreshments or drinks at all. Again, it took an hour to get someone to fill it. 6. My room was on the 34th floor. It usually takes 5 min to get hot water in the shower. 7. The last, but not least important, most of the hotel staff had serious problems in communicating in proper English.
Very helpful staff, the first room I was given did not match the description provided from Booked.net, ie separate living area. When I mentioned this staff immediately re located me to a room with separate living area. Lovely room, extrememly comfortable and stunning bathroom. Located close to good shopping centre which is a bonus as in hot dusty conditions it is a good option to pass time in Doha indoors.
No day spa as yet, and smoking allowed in the one restaurant which I tried is pretty unpleasant for non smokers.
Beautiful, modern, clean hotel. Attentive, but not over bearing staff.
Doha isn't cheap.
Memorable stay, the hotel is just as you' would expect from Intercontinental, very friendly staff with great value and they have many nice restuarants unfortunately I could not try for my short stay, but next time sure I will.
Location. It was in the city center.
The cleaning of the bathrooms wasn't as clean as expected for 5-star hotel.
The room was nit ready although I arrived afteR 03:00 pm and I had to wait without telling me how long I need to wait just wait!
They have variety of rooms and suites (1,2,3& 4)bedrooms. They have variety of resurants
Nothing everything was under expectations I didn't believe that I was staying at 5 Stars hotel had 2 Nightmares not 2 nights stay
Service was very poor : 1) I was checked in at different room than the one I've booked & paid 2) Service was very poor I had to call 9 times to get my request from what they call it at their room phone ( Immediate Service Bottom 3) They never cleaned my room every morning I had to call & fight many times to have it done, 4) Very rood stuff specially at the club floor 5) Facilities very poor less than one star 6) Service very poor less than 1 star 7) I didn't catch up my meeting first day because of the delay to my request 8) I will never forget this bad business trip in my life.
Its a great new hotel, excellent and friendly staff. The room was very big and wonderful view of the Westbay. Very near to the shopping centre. The Square Restaurant was very good and has a lot of variety.
Staff were very friendly and quick to respond to any request for help or assistance. The hotel upgraded me to the business floor, and it was nice to have the nespresso coffee machine in my office, complete with capsules. Hotel has a very a nice restaurant and bar on the top floors 55&56th, with a wonderful view over the West Bay area. View from the pool equally impressive. Very good hotel for business travelers.
