Transiting through Doha International Airport in Qatar last month, I was surprised by the low-level of airport facilities. Not a world-class airport by any stretch of the imagination, Doha International Airport does however have some world-class hotels nearby, offering superb accommodation and excellent guest service. If you’re staying in or transiting through Qatar and want to stay in a comfortable conveniently-located hotel near Doha International Airport, look no further than these best three.
Ramada Plaza Doha – Less than three miles from Doha International Airport, the Ramada Plaza Doha is also within walking distance of Doha’s famous souks, a shopping center and a water park. For either an overnight transit stay or a longer trip, the Ramada Plaza Doha is in a perfect location for those wanting to stay close to Doha International Airport but still be able to see something of the city.
At the Ramada Plaza Doha, each guest room features a spacious en suite bath with bathrobe and slippers, satellite TV, minibar, hair dryer, air conditioning, and a work desk. You can also request a room with a refrigerator and an iron and ironing board.
The hotel has a large swimming pool, a sauna, Jacuzzi and fully-equipped gym, tennis courts, a business center and several restaurants. Try Hyde Park, if you prefer international cuisine, Chingari, if Indian fare is more to your liking, and don’t miss pre- or after-dinner drinks in the Library.
The Ramada Plaza Doha is at Salwa Road C Ring Road Doha, Qatar.
Moevenpick Tower Doha – Located near Doha International Airport, only a quick two and a half mile drive away, this brand new 350 room luxury Swiss hotel offers world-class service and facilities.
At the Moevenpick Tower Doha, every guest room features a spacious en suite bath with bathrobe and slippers, work desk, flatscreen TV, hairdryer, Wi-Fi internet and a fully-equipped kitchenette.
The Moevenpick Tower Doha is known for its superb restaurants and cafes. Eat a buffer breakfast, lunch or dinner at Animato, noodles at Wok Mee Noodle House or meet clients at Lime Cafe.
The hotel’s amenities include a world-class business center, a swimming pool, a health and wellness center, a massage center and a children’s play area. Doha Golf Club is also only a 15 minute drive away.
The Moevenpick Tower Doha is situated at the entrance to West Bay in Doha, Qatar.
Ayana Golden Coast – The Ayana Golden Coast Hotel is a 4-star hotel just three miles from Doha International Airport, yet is still one of the most inexpensive of the Doha hotels with easy access to the airport.
At Ayana Golden Coast, your guest room will feature an en suite marble bathroom, flat screen TV with satellite, a mini bar, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities, safety deposit box and free Wi-Fi internet throughout the hotel.
