It’s just 18-months since the hotel opened in early 2020, ahead of the most turbulent year for the travel and hospitality industries to date. However, the team in Doha continued to put guests first, tackling the challenges that were thrown at them – and have not received a single review below 3 stars across all booking platforms.
