Name: Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels
This elegant Arabic boutique hotel embraces the history of Doha and is nestled in the heart of the historic Souq Waqif, just 15 minutes from the Doha Airport.
Hotel options are plentiful in Doha, with so much development in the city. This hotel complex offers traditional, unique but immaculate rooms right in the heart of Souq Waqif. The souq is a vibrant cultural and commercial centre established by the Bedouin tribes and today drawing visitors from around the globe. Take in the scents and sights of these winding alleyways to see the merchants trading fine silks, carpets, spices, textiles, antiques and Arabian Oud perfumes. This is a slightly sanitised version of the markets in Marrakech, more movie set experience than dank and dirty “real life”, so you can enjoy the ambiance of the market in a clean and safe environment. Here you can buy local goods or grab a drink in the surrounding cafes and restaurants.
