    Worth a DetourClean and food was nice. I like.
    OliverFebruary 2019
    SatisfactoryQuite big lounge. Very crowded. Comfortable chairs. Basic selection of food items and beverages. Too few power outlets. Quite slow wi-fi.
    Olle OlerupJanuary 2019
    OutstandingThis lounge is excellent, well maintained, and clean. Staff is very helpful.
    DanJanuary 2019
    SatisfactoryLounge seems too busy. It say this is a place to relax in quiet. Food and drinks available.
    AnonymousDecember 2018
    OutstandingThis lounge is amazing. Stuff very kind, all very clean, great design, delicious food (reataurant-buffet + snack zone). All very comfortable. The lounge is located next to the Gate A1 (2nd floor).

    Needs ImprovementNot impressed, was very crowded not many seats left. It’s quite small as well. Better to use Oryx Lounge next door for same price.
    TimOctober 2018
    Worth a DetourVery, very basic lounge. 6am and extremely crowded and noisy. OK food and nice espresso machine. Staff is very polite and friendly but doesn’t make up for this basic loud lounge.
    RickOctober 2018
    Needs ImprovementI can’t believe this lounge still hasn’t been improved. It is the most uncomfortable lounge I’ve been to worldwide in the way of seating. It is unbecoming of such a great airport. A disgrace.
    RhysOctober 2018
    OutstandingAfter a 12 hr flight in economy on Qatar it was nice to have a clean shower before our next 6 hour flight. The food and drink selection were great. And they were constantly picking up dishes.
    CourtneyOctober 2018
    SatisfactoryBasic lounge, light snacks, drinks, alcohol on request, small.
    DennisJuly 2018
    Needs ImprovementThis lounge is tiny, and was completely full when I visited. There was a line for the restroom, and the entire place smelled like smoke because the smoking room wasn’t insulated well. I left.
    MichaelMay 2018
    Needs ImprovementAt 6:30am it was so packed that I took some water and left immediately. Literally no seats left. Tiny food selection of carbs and sugars.
    JessicApril 2018
    Worth a DetourFood isn't too exciting, but it's good and there is a decent selection. You won't find comfortable couches or anything here, but the chairs are OK & there is a shower. Priority Pass limited to 4 hours.
    KellyDecember 2017
    SatisfactoryQuiet small ... only if you are lucky you might get a cozy is good but limited, although enough for a quick bite ...not recommended for longer transit..
    GaganDecember 2017
    SatisfactoryThe service is good, staff seems cool but it's crowded and lacks space for rest or get some shut eye. The food is good but limited choice. We had a layover of 8 hours and it got boring fast.
    EmirNovember 2017
    Worth a DetourDecent food and drink selection. Showers are very nice and staff are very attentive to your needs. There was a wait for the shower but staff will come find you to let you know it's ready for you.
    AndresNovember 2017
    SatisfactoryConsidering how everything is huge in Doha this is a small lounge which means it’s usually crowded. Quite clean, includes showers and in a central point of the airport.
    DKOctober 2017
    OutstandingAfter reading negative reviews I was very impressed. Clean and attentive staff - enjoyed my time here.
    AnthonySeptember 2017
    SatisfactoryVery crowded and smells like cigarette smoke. The food selection is sparse and it was very crowded when I was there. That said, the staff was very friendly and helpful.
    AnnaJuly 2017
    Needs ImprovementVery minimal food choices and only beer or wine.
    BenJuly 2017
    SatisfactoryPretty average PP lounge in terms of food and drinks, but with a more spacious and upscale feel.
    Curt AndersonJune 2017
    Worth a DetourThis lounge is better than most actually. Quiet with comfy chairs. Lots of cold sandwiches, snacks, soup, coffee and deserts. Big selection of non-alcoholic drinks with ice bin. The showers are A+. 😁
    AlexJune 2017
    Worth a DetourIt must vary by time of day. I came in the evening and it wasn't at all crowded. Nothing special but worthwhile.
    David ShellyMay 2017
    OutstandingI actually liked it here although it has no windows but it has a shower and great variety of food. Came here for breakfast and lunch and they have a friendly staff.
    Rowenn Monill April 2017
    SatisfactoryOverloaded with very limited snack.
    AlvinMarch 2017
    Needs ImprovementDesign and style of lounge is good, but no windows so feels closed off. Menu limited to snack food only and alcohol on request. Basics are all provided. Overall more like an office lobby than lounge.
    SimonMarch 2017
    SatisfactoryNice staff. Disappointing menu. Distracting color changing led billboard near the ceiling. Free shower makes up for the deficiencies, though.
    AnonymousFebruary 2017
    SatisfactoryThe space is not big. Food variety is limited. However, the staff are very friendly.
    ZeshengJanuary 2017
    SatisfactoryGlass ceiling with an LED billboard overhead makes sleep impossible. Not that the uncomfortable chairs would allow it anyway. Attentive waiters but a scrawny menu. Alcohol only on request.
    Scott January 2017
    Worth a DetourGood enough lounge for a few hours. No beds but can use the family room couch if it's empty. Basic food and drink selection. We were there 4 hours, good when empty but crowded when busy. Great shower.
    Arghya January 2016
    Needs ImprovementTiny and under a giant neon billboard. Esp disappointing when you can see the awesome Oryx lounge next door. Staff will NOT let you in unless you have physical PP card on your person.
    RKDecember 2016
    Worth a DetourOnce we found an open family room with a TV and discovered the discreet pasta menu, our stay improved greatly.
    NicoleDecember 2016
    SatisfactoryNot very comfy, and the super-bright neon lights from above almost make it impossible to relax. Great service though.
    AnonymousNovember 2016
    Needs ImprovementNot worth the stop, far too crowded and tables are messy.
    KyleOctober 2016
    Needs ImprovementBrand new airport and the lounge is big let down from the old Onyx Lounge. No dark corners and no reclining lounges chairs. And what's with the billboard overhead? Disappointed.
    rikeedeeSeptember 2016
    Worth a DetourNot bad for a PP lounge but not the best. Snacks and cold stuff like tabouli and hummus. Small but service was fantastic. Staff was incredibly nice. Oryx lounge (non-PP) is not THAT much better.
    AnonymousAugust 2016
    Worth a DetourSmart with good staff and a few food options. Was expecting worse from the reviews - maybe they are better setup now?
    The Flying PenguinJuly 2016
    Needs ImprovementVery small lounge just below a huge billboard. Very annoying light.
    PerJuly 2016
    Needs ImprovementVery basic and suffering from work in progress.
    walidMay 2016
    SatisfactoryReally good snack food, soup, and juice, but not meals. Nice staff. Nice showers. Not good for sleeping. $55 per person for 6 hours. For 2 people for 12 hours it was $220, not a good value.
    DaudiMarch 2016
    Needs ImprovementVery small lounge. Almost never get a seat. Limited drink selections. They let people in even when overflowing. No spirits. Very limited food. Have to ask for beer and wine.
