Accommodation In Doha
Hotels reaching for the clouds
Doha, the capital city of Qatar, is a coastal metropolis with skyscrapers to rival many in the most built up cities in the world. Many of these towering goliaths are packed with sumptuous hotel rooms, suites and penthouses offering exquisite views of the city lights and nearby coast.
At 300 metres high, The Torch places you above the city, providing 360-degree panoramic views. This hotel is all about combining modern technology with breathtaking scenery. The Hilton Doha, although not as tall, still enables you to live closer to the clouds in its spacious rooms with private balconies.
Five stars worth of class
With a significant amount of money being pumped into city infrastructure, it's no surprise that Doha's skyline is a majestic collection of glittering buildings. Get a little closer and you'll discover a gallery of 5-star hotels amidst cultural attractions such as the Museum of Islamic Art, the Souq Waqif market quarter and the Al-Corniche seaside promenade.
There are too many 5-star hotels to count on both hands, including the Millennium Hotel, Fraser Suites, Concorde, Wyndham Grand Regency and the Al Mirqab. One that really stands out amongst the diamonds is the Sharq Village and Spa, which is large enough to be its own village and provides elegant dining along the city's coast.
Affordable accommodation in Doha
Along with its range of upmarket accommodation, Doha comes with an equal amount of mid-range and affordable hotels that offer an agreeable level of service and comfort. The 3-star varieties, such as the Century Hotel, Chairmen Hotel and Kingsgate Hotel, still keep you tucked deep within the city with skyline views and easy access to the busy street markets and intimate restaurants.
Although these hotels cost a little less, they don't skimp on the extras, with many offering onsite pools and dining establishments for when you just want to stay in and relax. However, when you want to step out, you'll have a bit of spare cash for spending on souvenirs and activities.
