Qatar transit hotel for business class at Doha

By jamieavenger | Jan 16, 2019, 10:56 AM
I'm flying Canberra-Sydney-Doha- Oslo with Qatar in business class. Overnight hotel stay is included at Doha for a 9 hour transit.


My allocated hotel is not airside but the Oryx Rotana, about 5km away by airport shuttle. Apparently getting an airport hotel or one outside the airport is subject to availability.


Question - has anyone been successful in getting Qatar to change their transit hotel location from an outside location to the airport hotel? Given the short transit time I would prefer to be at the airport. I emailed the Qatar call centre but they couldn't change it.

You should be through immigration and into your hotel within about half an hour of getting off the aircraft.
There is a dedicated QR F and J arrivals and immigration lounge to the far left when you enter the immigration hall.
You will be much more comfortable at the Rotana than in the terminal hotel.

9 hours is plenty of time and it's easy to get in and out of the airport. There is also dedicated F and J check in when departing.
