La Cigale Hotel

The unfinished car-park spoils the effect at La Cigale Hotel in Doha, Qatar.
The 20 storey La Cigale Hotel has seemed nearly ready open for months and months it is now finally – pre-open. They are not taking any room bookings yet, and they are still working away on that car-park, but you now go and have a look around or eat in their Ramadan tent.

The hotel itself looks modern but can’t escape the rubble in the car park- until night at least, when it lights up in a blaze of colour.

The staff are lovely, and if you just walk in they are happy to show you around – at least, to see what little is ready. I was shown to their pool bar, which is currently being used as their Ramadan tent. The pool, which is inside the bar area, looked very sophisticated, although you would use their other pool (not yet open) if you wanted a decent swim. The bar, in its Ramadan decor, looked superb.

If you want to have a look around, the hotel is located on Suhaim Bin Hamad Street, close to Blue Saloon and Al Sadd Traffic lights. To park your car, you will have to drive round the back of the hotel – if you are coming from Ramada Signals towards Hamad Hospital, turn right at the traffic lights, and then turn right again at the next junction.

You can also book a meal there. The options are their Ramadan tent, which serves Suhur from 8.00 p.m. to 1 a.m. and cost QR185 ++, or Iftar, which is served in their ground floor cafe and costs QR135 ++. Both require pre-booking.
