We stayed here for a Doha stopover to break up a long journey back from Europe.
It is a good basic business hotel which offers all you need and no more at the right price. Rooms are simple but comfortable. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. Not a resort hotel or a hotel for fine dining but very acceptable stopover accommodation.
Location is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand it is close to the airport and in walking distance of the major tourist attractions the Souq and the Museum of Islamic Art. On the other the immediate vicinity is somewhat ugly.
One small tip - make sure you have a credit card executed by PIN rather than by signature as this is required by the hotel. If you don't you will need to pay directly for any hotel charges rather than sign to the room. This is not the end of the world but obviously an inconvenience. PINs seem to be a very strong Doha preference as we encountered a similar problem paying for a visa at Doha airport.
