We stayed in the Retaj as part of a Qatar Airways transit stopover of 20 hours. Bed and pillows very good. We had a room with a view of the Gulf, facing the main road, and with an interconnecting door to the next room. Very little noise insulation, both inside and outside, not sleep friendly. Carpets with random stains, smoke...

Hotel is close to the airport and well located in the diplomatic quarter. It has an impressive lobby and friendly staff. Breakfast was good. All that said the rooms were very tired indeed and well in need of a refurbishment. I was also not convinced the room was as clean as it could be.

Hotel clean and comfortable. Ideal for muslims. No alcohol is served. Lovely buffet for breakfast, lunch and diner. Swimming pool has 3 hours for women only. Regretfully the pool is in the shade all morning (no sun). There is a shopping mall nearby and bsides this you can find the exhibition centre.
