The boutique hotel is a series of buildings located throughout the souq. You are greeted with tea and dates and then escorted to your room by a golf cart to your building. My room and bathroom were very spacious! And the location is great. I stayed here for an overnight layover which is not far from the airport.

From the outside this hotel doesn't look anything special but once you step through the door you feel welcomed and at home. This is a delightful hotel and the staff could not be more helpful. I was impressed with the wonderful service especially by Monica on the reception desk. The room was pleasant and the bed very comfortable. My only...

Perfectly situated in the Souq Wagif you can easily walk to Museum of Islamic Arts. The staff were kind, generous and knowledgeable. The room was beautifully decorated and very spacious. Breakfast was a treat.

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...

“Ask for a quiet room on a high floor”

“Ask for a quiet room as rooms facing the Souq can be noisy. However all noise ends by 10 pm.”

“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.”
