The W Doha is a luxurious trendy five star hotel which is located in the middle of Doha. It is currently rated as one of the best hotels in Doha and offers 442 rooms and suites. I did not expect to find this kind of hotel in Doha. The building itself is quite impressive especially at night when the lights are on and the music is playing. When I entered the hotel, I immediately noticed the beautiful blue hanging lamps… It truly is just gorgeous and definitely an eye-catcher! Especially at night! I also loved the fresh flowers all over the place. Very nice!
Check-in was very efficient and they explained everything we needed to know about the hotel and its facilities. The W hotel is not an ordinary hotel, it is one of the most comfortable and trendy hotels in the city! There’s a cool vibe all over the place and they know how to treat their guests. Every staff member I met was very helpful and professional assisting me with anything I asked for. Oh, I love the fact that they give you some sort of business card with a number on it so you can whatsapp whatever request you may have. How cool is that?
The rooms at the W hotel are large, comfortably appointed and their feather beds are amazing! They used soft colors and I definitely liked the curtains throughout the room. Bath room was very luxurious offering a large walk-in shower and separate bath tub. High quality Bliss toiletries such as the mouth wash were great.
The restaurants here, each rated among the best in the city, are fantastic! From Asian to European cuisine, they have it all! The first night we had dinner at Spice Market, an authentic South-East-Asian street food restaurant which mainly serves Thai dishes. Almost unbelievable how they manage to combine all the flavors. I could eat the Thai soup every day! The other night, we tried Market (a European style restaurant) by Jean-Georges. Food was fantastic and service was very efficient and fast. I appreciated the fact that the staff had a great knowledge of each dish. Do try the Black truffle fontina pizza, one of their signature dishes. You won’t be sorry! 🙂 Breakfast is served here every morning too, by the way. It is a buffet style breakfast which will please anyone. On top of that, I enjoyed lunch at La Spiga, an Italian restaurant with a great atmosphere. I love the fact that every single restaurant at the W is something totally different … but the food is always delicious! The quinoa salad was to die for. Thumbs up! By the way, did you know that every restaurant has its own ‘Menugram’? That is right, you can see a picture of the actual dish you are ordering. Very convenient and very 2016!
The pool at the W Doha is great and the lounge and sun area offers amazing views over the city. I liked the fact that there’s a lap pool. It can be so annoying that some guests are swimming laps and disturbing other guests (and vice versa)… Well, they don’t have this problem at the W. Very smart! Right next to pool is a fitness and spa center. Although I did not experience a treatment here, the spa center does look nice and intimate.
As one would expect, you really can’t go wrong by booking a room at the W Doha. From the trendy and comfortable rooms to the delicious restaurants, the W Doha is great five star property which offers the very best to their guests.
