1. Where to stay
I arrived at Doha on the 17th of May 2012. I had made e reservation at the Holiday Villa hotel , it might be a 5 star hotel, but it cost only USD110. It looks like a giant boat in the outside, the lobby looks beautiful but there was a problem on the draining system on the bath tub. They allowded a late check out and the Taxi service from the hotel was prompt and reasonable. Restaurants are open in 24 hours.
