Best area to stay in Doha
The best place to stay in Doha is the West Bay area, ideally within the city´s financial and commercial district, just 30 minutes by car from the new Hamad International Airport. It is the perfect place for both business and pleasure visits.
In this area you will find the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre, some great shopping options in the City Centre Mall or The Gate Mall Doha, or you can also talk a walk along the seafront and enjoy a delicious meal at The Corniche, which also boasts beautiful gardens and small historical monuments to be explored. For nightlife we recommend visiting the Noir Lounge & Club.
For the more active among you, there are also many great options, such as the Poseidon Dive Centre, a diving centre that offers many open air activities, water sports and boat trips. You also have the Qatar Sports Club football stadium and the Khalifa Tennis and Squash Complex nearby, which has multiple courts with big screens for enjoying a great game.
Don´t miss out on The Museum of Islamic Art and its neighbouring MIA Park where you can go for a nice walk, have lunch, do some activates, or simply sit back and admire the Doha skyline. For getting around the city, you can take the bus or rent a car.
