I booked last minute via booking.com when I arrived Doha and a room was about £70. This is a really good deal, given they provide FREE breakfast and FREE CANCELLATION when booked on booking.com, meaning you do pay a pay at all if you don't stay there. The hotel is 10 minutes away from Museum of Islamic Art, Doha. Just... More
