Copthorne Hotel Doha (Doha, Qatar)

3 Case Rating


Location

Located about 10-15 minutes drive from arrivals at Doha international(the old airport). Its about 5-10 to airport departures as hotel is located on the airport road. Close to the hotel is a mini supermarket but with not many items- crisps, chocolates etc. Mcdonalds/KFC is about 5 minute drive away. Downtown area is about 10-15 minutes away. If you want alcohol the hotel is dry but across the road at Crowne Plaza there is a lounge bar- which plays some salsa music and is quite nice place to relax with a beer but expensive.

Room

The room was nice and clean, a comfortable large double firm bed with side tables with lamps and a phone- but no clock. There is a desk cabinet area with a mirror in front and kettle – was presented with only one tea. There is a large Samsung TV in which offers 58 channels, 75% in Arabic including BBC but also an Italian, German, French and Hindi channel. English includes Aljazeera, Bloomberg, fox movies and Fashion TV. Large convent luggage rack and an arm chair and table. A large wardrobe exists as well. Lots of lamps and the odd UK style plug- but you will have to unplug a lamp to use. A minibar exists in a fridge as well as a safe.
The bathroom is quite spacious and includes a bidet, and shower/bath combo. Water is quite hot. Generous amount of towels- amenities are hotel based and include only shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion in small bottles.

Facilities

Arrived late and left early so short time at hotel so did not see much but believe they have a gym and pool. There is, close to the lobby, a lounge area with a coffee shop with large seating area offering many teas,coffees and cakes. Believe there is a restaurant as well. WIFI is secure, they issue a password for 2 devices (although only worked on one) and is slightly inconsistent with speeds but ok to check an email.

Staff

Staff are friendly and polite but a little vague and confused. Booked hotel with agoda and presented voucher but was told booking was not initially on system- reception said to staff please check a room to make sure no guests are in it ? (checked-in at 8pm so not prepared). The room was presented with no mini bar or complimentary water- so asked and told they will place in room. Went out for 3 hours and came back and still not replaced in room- had to ask again and told but “no-one opened the door” as I was out but think they should check that room is fully ready for next guests.
Overall it is convenient to be close to airport but next time will look elsewhere- the hotel is a bit characterless with staff lacking attention to detail plus slow internet.
