What comes to your mind when you hear the word luxury? Do you think about the price tag associated with the word? Do you think lavish? Well, you might be right on some occasions but this is one instance where the word luxury does not mean expensive. Do you believe us?
We were in the hunt for a hotel for our next staycation and that’s when I (Karen) stumbled upon Warwick Doha, which markets itself as a luxury downtown Doha hotel. Although the hotel identifies itself as luxurious, we were very much surprised to learn that their overnight stay price would not cost us an arm and a leg. Be prepared to get your mind blown because our stay only cost us QAR 500/- (double occupancy without breakfast). We opted to forgo the buffet breakfast since we wanted to test out their room service and the in-room dining menu was quite affordable. Our breakfast for two came to a total of QAR 130/- *insert shocked emoji*.
Although the room we stayed at was small, it didn’t bother us since the interiors were quite fancy. Take a look for yourself, let the pictures do all the talking.
Well, what do you have to say? Isn’t it charming? Isn’t it shocking to find out that you can get such a beautiful room for such a reasonable amount?
But to be honest, it does have its flaws although not a whole lot of it. One was that the view from the room wasn’t the most picturesque since the hotel is situated in the middle of the city. Secondly, the hand held bidet water spray in the bathroom was broken. They could have repaired it or at least totally replaced it with a new one. Lastly, the mini bar was not stocked up since apparently you have to request for that.
Luckily though, service was great; staff were always on time when we requested for something. Room service was quick too and our overall stay was comfortable. We didn’t come across any problems at all.
