Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels by Tivoli

Be transported back to the charm of a bygone era in a meticulously restored collection of boutique hotels overlooking Doha’s renowned Souq Waqif. Each hotel is a distinctive example of Qatar’s diverse architectural legacy. The sumptuous interiors tell an evocative story of Qatari culture, while also offering a luxurious hotel experience.

Venture beyond the gleaming, modern façades and experience Doha as it once was with an unforgettable stay at Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels by Tivoli. Each hotel is cosily embedded within the Souq Waqif itself. Here, every visitor becomes a cherished guest.

A convenient 15-minute journey from Hamad International Airport takes you deep into the historic heart of the Old City. Step into a world where time slows down to a gentle pace, and a walk through the souqs to each hotel takes you on a journey of discovery.  

Close to the souq mosque, you will find Al Bidda Boutique Hotel. Once the home of a noble Qatari family, the hotel offers 17 rooms and 15 suites, each one a seamless blend of Qatari craftsmanship and contemporary art. Nearby, on the street of the same name is Al Jasra, a 5-star haven of high-end elegance. Each of its rooms and suites is the work of Qatar’s top interior designers. Around the corner from the bird souq is the historic Al Jomrok Hotel, where intricately carved wood panels give each room a distinctly Arabian feel. Not far from the Doha Fort is the Mirqab Boutique Hotel – a welcoming sanctuary with its moody colour palette and courtyard pool. The Arumaila Boutique Hotel, next to the spice store, has just 19 beautifully appointed rooms, and near the Corniche, you’ll find the Musheireb Boutique Hotel – the last word in decorative opulence. Down in the heart of Souq Waqif is Najd, a gem of a small hotel with its generously proportioned rooms and suites overlooking the buzzing souqs. Last but not least, taking pride of place amongst these is Bismillah, Doha’s oldest hotel and one of its finest. Its sumptuous suites take luxury to the next level. 

Salute the morning with a coffee or decadent hot chocolate at La Piazza or La Patisserie. Take time to stop and smell piles of Persian saffron and sample fresh, sticky Jordanian dates. Pick out some fine silks and handcrafted leather bags. Sample Moroccan slow food at Argan or head to Al Terrace, where you can try khachapuri and other staples of authentic Georgian cuisine. As the sun sets over the Corniche, climb the stairs to the Al Matbakh rooftop restaurant for Indian cuisine with a view. Or take in the sounds of the souqs below at Al Shurfa Arabic Lounge, with its laid-back luxury and unhurried atmosphere.

Back in the cocooning comfort of the Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels, you’ll find a welcoming spa and swimming pool, and a quiet corner to enjoy a cup of karak chai. Even amid the fast-paced life in this vibrant city, at Souq Waqif you’ll discover slow living, Qatari style.
