Amazing. Friendly. Helpful. Clean. Professional. Great location.
Would stay again for sure and will definitely suggest this hotel to anyone visiting Doha.
p.s we are a gay male couple, perhaps not so obvious, and we felt very welcomed and safe at Retaj Al Rayyan.
Shokran!

Highlights of the Hotel -- *The hotel is located at one of the best spots in Qatar and view from the room is amazing .
*There is a city centre mall nearby for small shopping and for kids to play.
*The rooms are big and comfortable with all amenities required.
* very luxurious interiors in the lobby and reception


Drawbacks-- * no much service from the reception in helping you with the luggage or to show you the room when you first check in
*The room cleaning is absolutely slow
*Dental kit is provided only on request and you will have to call them at least twice
*when you order food to the room..the service is very slow that you get hung up.
* breakfast if not included in room charge is expensive
* less or no Attention is given to customers/guests.

Room Tip: TOp floor gives a good view

Excellent location, top facilities, efficient staff and quality food- I highly recommend this hotel. Staff give personal attention to the needs of the individual guest. Huge commendation to Ahmed Mokhtar, Jamal, Karim, Abdullah, Rizza, Liesel and Saliem. Such persons make a stay in Retaj a top class experience. I utilise every single facility in this hotel and am able to comment in detail

Rooms: spacious, great beds, large bathrooms, homely feel. Mini bar and safe as well as great cupboard space.

Restaurant: for breakfast expect express options with swift service matched to a low price. For lunch, expect variety, an interactive chef, leisurely service.
In room dining is especially high quality and well priced.

Spa: world class facilities, excellent massage options and good prices for West Bay.
Gym: treadmill, bikes and weights with top of the range stretch mats. Friendly staff here make using the equal breeze
Pool: medium size with a sea view, plunge pool and seating area. I like the roofed but outdoors concept

Business centre: plush interior, swift service and extended hours make for a valuable service

Valet and concierge: dedicated staff offering several options tailored to the individual. Safety remains of paramount importance

Foyer and reception: a stunning waterfall with choice design and robust reception staff give an accurate frontline reflection of retaj.

Unlimited WiFi, a shoe polish station, 24 hour reception and concierge, on-site executive management, Privelage card option, fast lifts, coffee shop and top of the range cooling systems, retaj Al Rayyan hotel is truly a glorious offering a stones throw away from the city centre and a short walk to the corniche. It is competitively priced, beautifully decorated and most deserving of four stars. Once more congratulations to Ahmed Mokhtar who introduced me to this hotel and who serves as an outstanding management member in this establishment. Book now.

Stayed here with my family for a one night while connecting flights in Doha.

The lobby promises much more than the actual hotel delivers. Rooms have seen its best and are in need of renovation, cleaning is so so, Windows were dirty and I felt that smiles from the staff were not very genuine.

Rooms are decent size and there is wifi, pool and gym at the location.

Breakfast and lunch provide good variety but somehow lack little in taste and quality.

There is nothing to see around the hotel and probably I would choose differently if visiting again in the area.

This may have been a 5 star quality hotel when it was built 30 odd years ago but it’s seriously in need of an renovation to get anywhere near the standard of the 3 or genuine 5 star hotels that are within 300 yards.
Rooms are ok, if a bit dilapidated. The bathrooms are very dated and poorly designed.
If you pay around $70-$80 p/night then it’s a good place to stay.
