Before deciding where to stay in Doha, it is important to say that Airbnb is not legal in Qatar, at least not yet. Hotels are the best options and there are options for all budgets and types of travelers in Qatar.

There are two good areas to stay, in the old town and Souq Waqi area (where are most of the sights) and West Bay, the modern side of the city. As you can see, the advantage of staying in the Souq Waqif region is the proximity of the tourist attractions. But West Bay is a short distance by subway or taxi to the tourist attractions.

Park Hyatt

I had a great experience in my second time in Qatar at the Park Hyatt Doha. The hotel is all new and really well designed, perfectly located right by the Souq Waqif, with easy access to all the museums and the subway station. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I think which made a real difference.

Inside the Souq there are some excellent hotels, such as Tivoli’s Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels, which has an excellent location. Or the Al Najada Hotel, which is also from Tivoli and is opposite the Souq, as well as the Al Najada Doha Hotel Apartments by Oaks which is an aparthotel.

Another option is the Alwadi Hotel MGallery, which is on one of the other sides of the Souq and with an excellent location. The Kingsgate Hotel, which was where I stayed once and I really liked it.
