I will make a nine hours stopover in Doha in may arriving around 10pm. Worth taking a taxi to a hotel and return the next morning?
Will be easy to reach a restaurant by cab and after go for a rest in the hotel?
I would recommend a stayover in a hotel. Orxy Rotana is just next to departures, a short taxi ride from Arrivals.
I flew back into Doha yesterday and the immigration queue was huge, and I mean huge. At least a 3 hour wait!!!! I always pay for the meet and greet, which is 200 rials, may seem alot of money, but well worth every dirham. almost 5 years ago
If you will be arriving Doha after May 27, the entire airport will be moving to its new one the Hamad International Airport, its a bit on the outskirt of the city but not that far, maybe it will take you around 20 mins to get to a hotel and the nearest hotel would be Sharq Hotel and Spa. If you will be staying in a hotel for just one night, i suggest you stay in the airport hotel which is just inside the airport and no need for younto pay for an extra charge for a taxi. Airport taxis cost much. about 4 years ago
