All Good!

Doha, Qatar

I really liked this hotel, it was a safe area surrounded by places to eat and some shopping so basic needs could be easily met without being completely dependent on the hotel. Melrose Arch is a cute little area, geared at pedestrians and feels really safe. I did go for a walk and felt a change once out of the immediate little bubble but I still felt safe. The hotel itself was nicely appointed, comfortable, clean and the staff were pleasant. I would recommend the hotel and think I would have liked it even more if the weather had been nicer so the pool area would be more welcoming. The hotel really was all good, no complaints, even decent value for money. However, I would likely stay on more of a train line if I returned. I didn’t like that transportation had to combine train plus Uber or bus. I think there may be other safe areas that also feel less isolated.

Second visit


Business type hotel though of better quality than most. Check in after a long flight from the UK was a pain 'not until 3pm' Good location for the Melrose Arch complex which is a 'town' encompassed by security, so wandering about in both the daytime and at night to the many restaurants and bars is relaxing and enjoyable. Lots of shops here too. Good restaurant and a bar looking out towards to square, adequate pool and limited sunbeds plus outside tables some of which are uniquely placed in around 300mm of water to keep you cool!
