We have just spent 7 nights in the Najd hotel which is part of the Souq Waqif Boutique Hotel group. It was the best experience we have had in a long time. The hotel was right in the Souq and you could have breakfast at other locations i.e Al Bidda ~ the best breakfast experience. We can honestly say we...

I loved this hotel, location is in Souq waqif where all restaurants and shops are around the corner. It just took my a while to find it as the name was different, the correct name should be displayed while booking which is Arumaila hotel. Staff was very friendly and of many nationalities. Would stay there next time I visit Qatar.

a very distinctive hotel where you can feel you a time traveled to the history. All furniture was selectively wise and unique. Each has named based on the cities in Qatar. Staying here is really worth trying and a very affordable rate. You wont regret it

I have not seen any of the other hotels in doha from the inside, but the SouqWaqif is just amazing! I used the airport transport from the hotel (so no trouble finding a taxi or carrying heavy suitcases) and was very warm welcomed! The room was really spacious and looked exactly like the pictues on their website! It was on...

Firstly, the location next to the souq is great, but it is difficult, if not impossible to get a taxi as they cannot come close to the hotel and they are not to be found in peak times out on the streets. The room was nice enough, but the lack of a window makes spending time in the room rather...

Always wanted to stay at the Hotel Souq Waqif and finally got the chance. Fantastic location, espcially if you are there to take photos as it is in the souq, on the corniche and everywhere is walkable. Having said that this is just as well as the facilities for parking a rental are not at all good and is probably...

Doha is succombing to the Dubai-disease, and, unlike in Oman, it's hard to find much that reminds you where you are. The main exception to this sad state of architectural affairs is the Hotel Souq Waqif. On the edge of the bazaar of the same name, its architecture echoes that of several large buildings within the souq. Perhaps best of...

I chose the Hotel Souq Waqif for my 2-night stopover in Doha based on TripAdvisor reviews, because I wanted a hotel in walking distance to the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) and, always being fascinated by souqs, to Souq Waqif. Although the hotel is a bit pricey, particularly if you are travelling on your own, I don't think I could...

“The Junior Suite has a small sitting room that would be a good location for an extra bed, but as there are 2 armchairs and a tv in the bedroom, a couple would probably never use the sitting room.”

“have a look at the map and check which way you want to be facing either back over the souq or out over the corniche and the bay”

“We enjoyed being on the souq-side of the hotel, where we could watch the Qataris come and go, buying birds, eating a kabob, or just having a gossip.”
