I was received warmly by the staff at the front desk. They remembered my previous stay there and inquired whether I had any needs. The housekeeping staff were equally helpful and checked on me twice during my stay to know whether I wanted anything. The hotel is not far from the airport and is close to eateries as well as shops. Good value for money.

"Hit and miss"
Rooms quite old and not in pristine condition, at least not when compared to the public areas which are very good. Lobby area is full of natural daylight and great place for lunch, except only 1 staff and difficult to cope with the number of patrons. Lovely sandwich and apart from only having 1 fresh juice available, it was great.
Air-con in room does not appear to allow temperature adjustment, only slightly increase the air flow. In the daytime I had to wait for a call so the room was a little too hot in this regard. Evening in Doha cools down quite significantly so was not a problem. Also the large shower is appreciated, however the shower floor needs a fresh anti slip treatment, very slippery.. Ample & quality amenities and good selection of TV channels for those which might need.
Overall a good stay, with a little touch up in room, it would be a true 5 star. Overall the staff were friendly and nice. Location is convenient with the new Metro stations and line opened.

"OK for a large hotel"
Large impersonal hotel, room comfy service rubbish. Easy option when needing a bed between flights. Bathroom sink blocked, mentioned at checkout. Would always try and use a small hotel with personal service where possible. Would not recommend this hotel.

"Quick trip to Doha"
We had a most enjoyable stay in the Oryx Rotana Hotel in Doha
When we arrived at the hotel we asked if we could avail of an early check in and a late check out the following night and they accommodated us and they also didn’t fleece us on the price which was good.
The Hotel looks quite ordinary on the outside but is extremely luxurious on the inside and the Lobby is huge with a glass elevator in the centre which is most impressive. Our room was lovely, very comfortable with everything you require. Breakfast was most impressive with an array of food to please every nationality that would visit. We also ate in the Cellar Tapas Restaurant, it was lovely and the staff so attentive. We also took a driver from the Hotel and he took us around Doha on a sightseeing trip for about an hour and a half and it was quite reasonable and very enjoyable and if your time is short I would thoroughly recommend doing that. The following day we took the Bus Tour which was a bit long and we sort of doubled up on what we had seen the previous day with our driver. We went to the Museum housing the Islamic Art and it was so impressive and interesting, would recommend a visit there. Also went to the Souk and ate in Le Parisa, not cheap, but the food was very good and it seemed to be a spot where all the Quatarians ate too. Overall we had a great stay.

Other than some of the unfriendly staff at Choice Cafe. The rest of the staff at Oryx Rotana were pleasant, accommodating and professional during our entire stay there. The room is comfortable, Housekeeping did a fantastic job, and I appreciate the turn down service every night. And the hotel is about 10mins walk to metro station, which made it convenient to go For sightseeing.

"Stay in Doha"
I forget my headset in my room and I called the hotel when I was in the airport while leaving from Qatar.
The personnel who attended my call did a great follow up and sent my headset to the airport on time. I really request you to energize this person for his great attitude towards the customers.
