Hotel restaurant is closed under renovations and they don't have a coffee bar set up for guest. Instead of calling to find out if we planned on checking out..they told me I couldn't extend...

I spent there 5 months, and i think is price wise is very expensive. The cleaning service is low quality, and they forgot about replacing the towels constantly, and the cutlery is greasy after their cleaning. They have probably the worst pool in Doha.
