Where to stay in Qatar

Although Qatar's accommodation is concentrated in Doha, the city's central location means you'll never need to journey more than 120km if you choose to seek adventure beyond its glimmer. From opulent 5-star resorts to boutique hotels and budget-friendly accommodation, Doha is a world-class city for stays that suit all tastes and budgets.

  • West Bay 

    Home to Doha's iconic high-rise and close to many of the city's attractions, West Bay is the best place to drop your bags if you're a first-time visitor to Qatar. The pyramid-shaped Sheraton Grand Doha Resort is just a leisurely amble from the city's beautiful waterfront Corniche Promenade, while hotels such as the InterContinental, The Four Seasons Hotel and the City Centre Rotana Doha Hotel are close to the City Centre Doha Mall and the city's Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre. The InterContinental also doubles as a seaside resort with its own private beach. 

  • Doha city centre

    The city centre calls if you want to base yourself close to attractions such as Doha's traditional Souq Waqif market, Dhow Harbour, the Museum of Islamic Art and the picturesque southern end of the Doha Corniche Promenade. Plus, it's closer to Doha's international airport than West Bay. Not only that, but the city centre is brimming with a range of affordable stays from the Movenpick Doha to high-end delights such as the Banyan Tree.   

  • Near the international airport 

    Doha's Hamad International Airport (DOH) serves as Qatar's primary airport and the base for Qatar Airways, the national carrier providing extensive connectivity to destinations worldwide.    If your stay in Qatar is brief, or you're simply the type of traveller who prefers the convenience of staying near your exit point, then you're well catered for. The Hyatt Regency Oryx Doha offers 5-star luxury within 6km of Hamad International Airport — as does the Rixos Gulf Hotel, which is complete with superb waterfront views. More affordable options nearby include the Concorde Hotel and the Oasis Beach Club.   

  • Wow factor 

    Qatar is home to some stunning modern architecture and Katara Towers is undoubtably Doha's signature jaw-dropper. Its twin inwardly curving towers, designed to evoke the crossing curved swords of Qatar's national crest, house not one luxury hotel brand, but two: Raffles Doha and Fairmont Doha. Staying at either is a destination in itself! 

Frequently asked questions

Qatar was famously the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Qatar is also considered one of the richest countries in the world, so it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about luxury.


This tiny Arabian Peninsula nation is almost surrounded by glistening turquoise water, so you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful beaches. Katara Beach is great for families, while Banana Island and Umm Bab Beach are great for those who don’t mind travelling for the perfect stretch of sand. Just be sure to remember your conservative swimming attire.


Qatar is blessed with superb weather all year round, meaning it is a great destination whatever the season. That said, Qatar is known for its scorching summers. If you’re looking for a poolside vacay, aim for November or March to May, when it cools down a little. Just a heads up if you’re planning a March vacation, be sure to check the dates for Ramadan.


Browse Doha's Souq Waqif for old-world treasures, check out the Museum of Islamic Art, catch a football game, sample the local cuisine, relax on the beach, head out to the desert for some dune bashing, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! 


Many first-time travellers to Qatar are drawn to Doha, the capital city. It offers a mix of modern amenities and cultural attractions, making it a perfect destination for tourists.


When packing for your vacation to Qatar, be sure to bring lightweight, breathable and modest clothing for the hot and humid climate as well as comfortable shoes. As Qatar is a Muslim country, travellers should keep their shoulders, knees and stomach covered. On public beaches, both men and women should wear a T-shirt and board shorts when swimming at public beaches.


Qatar is a fascinating destination with a mix of modern cities and traditional desert landscapes. Where to go depends on your preferred activities, but as a general guide, some top places to visit include the bustling capital of Doha, the ancient ruins of Al Zubarah, and the stunning Inland Sea.
