Where to stay in Doha, Qatar

Without a doubt, it is not just the quaint urban landscape and the many opportunities it gives travellers to enjoy both luxury and business-oriented stays that attracts visitors to Doha, the capital city of Qatar. More than that, it is more likely that the world honestly marvels at the frantic pace at which it went from pearl fishing village to becoming one of the most developed cities in the Middle East. That being said, it must be underlined that its rich cultural heritage has been wisely preserved while growing as a destination boasting a top-quality hospitality offer.

In addition, its proximity and good transport connections to Hamad International airport, the current primary base of the renowned global carrier Qatar Airways, make it ideal for a Middle East adventure. By way of example, the journey to Doha city centre from the airport lasts 20 minutes on average and can be done by taxi, shuttle, and limousine or by taking the Express circular route 777, dedicated to passengers arriving through HIA and transferring to the downtown. Also, a metro line that will cover this distance is currently under construction and planned to start operations later on this year.
