Stayed in: April 2016


As I had a 13 hour layover in Doha, there was only really one practical option on where to stay. The Transit Hotel. Upon clearing security, I saw signs for it but struggled a little to find it – turns out you had to use a non descript elevator facing away from he main passage way.

Upon check in, I was told I’d been given a free upgrade.

Main Room

The room itself was surprisingly big actually, considering its actually built into the terminal. The colour scheme was a little on the neutral side though.

The bathroom, much like the rest of the room was more than big enough, with dual sinks, a shower and toilet in a separate area.

A decent set of bathroom amenities, along with a tea tray and two bottles of water were present.

In Conclusion

I did have a few reservations about this one initially – my previous experiences with independently run airport hotels (and even a few of the chains) have been over priced and poor quality. This one however would fit the bill for a few nights, so as a transit hotel its excellent. A little on the pricey side, but when its of a high quality, I don’t mind paying the premium.
