Al Mourjan lounge at Hamad airport in Doha is really impressive. However missing the old Business and First Class Terminal. It is so huge and far from many gates. I prefer the LHR Qatar Airways lounge. Cozy and more quiet. The restaurant/food were amazing. Very spacious and luxury seating area. However if you are looking for a chaise longue in the quiet area be patient - there was a huge waiting list. Also they forget to install A/C in the shower rooms. So don't have a too long and hot shower because you will be sweating afterwards.

Outstanding, we felt as if our holiday had begun at Heathrow. The quiet understated luxury was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, food was amazing, staff were polite and respectful. (Unlike Phuket Business Lounge where it was help yourself to a pot noodle).

Find negative comments about staff strange. We were waited on the whole time we were there. Most of staff were from Nepal and were very friendly. Good selection of food. We take on board about ordering sandwiches. Only real negative comment the lounge was a long way from our gate, apparently 1km. No walk ways meant we had to rush to the gate. Perhaps you should consider having a board giving approximate walking times to the various gates.

Whilst there is a lot to be admired about this lounge, it is clearly designed for business people who have 3 hr+ stopovers at Doha. I'm sure the a la Carte restaurants are excellent, but my wife and I had less than 2 hr stopover, and after you've made the lengthy walk from the gate, had a freshen up etc, the only thing we had time for is a cool beer and a selection from a quick and easy 'help yourself 'buffet (sandwich etc). The trouble is that this does not seem to exist because the food and drink section is located at the far end of the lounge, and you have to put in orders for tailor made sandwiches. We did not have the time for that, so downed a beer, and left. Surely it would be possible to put a small selection of buffet sandwiches, nachos, crisps, nuts etc for people who were in our position ? The lounge gets very busy around 11pm to 1 am, and it was pretty difficult to find two seats together during that time, though when we left it was a lot less crowded.

Wasn't expecting much. No natural light but there was a decent selection of hot and cold food. I just had some fresh fruit, cake and water. All very pleasant. I was called to the gate 70 minutes before departure, this was too early as I was just hanging about the gate which was too hot and had awful Mosquitos flying about.

An absolute gem of a lounge. Sit at the bar or relax in a comfy seat & enjoy the waited service, the choice is yours. There's a choice of informal dining from the Deli or eat in the Brasserie - I chose the fillet steak with peppercorn sauce. When the food & drink takes its toll the 'facilities' are of quality hotel standard. All lounges should use this place as their blueprint; simply outstanding.

On arrival the lounge looks spectacular. But it is too big and loses its exclusive feel. There are some comfortable leather sofas but too many of the seats are uncomfortable. There are two restaurants serving good buffet food, which is of good quality, but the Heathrow Qatar lounge has a superior offering with cook to order dishes. As Qatar Airways treats this airport as a hub with potentially long transit periods, then a few more facilities should ideally be provided such as a spa and lounger type seating allowing you to have a more comfortable sleep. After paying good money for a business class flight I don't feel I should have to pay good money for a transit hotel. As M Clarke mentioned in the review below , there are loads of staff who hang about doing not a lot, I don't want to be fussed over but it would be nice to be offered a drink or something. Overall a good lounge but underwhelming, maybe I was spoilt at the Qatar Heathrow lounge, but I think this lounge could do better, given all the hype on their website.

A fantastic lounge, the best I have visited, and in my opinion better than the Al Mourjan lounge at Doha which I visited on my arrival. The restaurant was amazing with made to order dishes and superb dessert station - I don't have a sweet tooth but just couldn't resist. Very spacious and luxury seating area with staff taking your drinks orders. A minor and amusing point was the waiter (who claimed he was the barman) had never heard of port, I explained it was similar to sherry, but he was still unsure what I was on about (he sounded eastern European), in the end I settled for another glass of Bollinger champagne.

First things first - to go to the loo when you arrive (not an uncommon destination I think), you have to go up a long ramp and then down another long ramp diagonally opposite, then double back on yourself and walk another 30/40 feet; this is bonkers. Every time I arrive here, I try a different seat - there is not a single comfortable seat in the place; there are a couple of nice leather sofas that look really nice, but I've never been able to get near them because they're always 'full'. There are weird modern seats (very 60s - they look great) that are too low and you have to virtually lie in them, or odd seats (that are at least higher) with big 'conservatory type' surrounds, but they really aren't that comfortable. Then there are the seats beside the very fancy looking computer monitors that are at a completely unrealistic angle for use, but although these seats look vaguely comfortable, it's like sitting in a corridor. There isn't a scrap of carpet anywhere that I can see. There's what looks like a nice restaurant about a quarter of a mile away (seems like with the up and down ramps) and several tea and coffee stations and then, at the opposite end to the restaurant is a deli. The old Ppremium terminal at Doha was lovely - nice people would pass by and ask if you'd like a sandwich and bring it to you, with a glass of something. This place is absolutely crawling with really lovely, helpful staff, but they don't seem to actually do anything. Worst of all, there is NO SPA, free or otherwise, unless you check into a hotel, no hairdresser either. For a lounge purporting to be world class, this is way off, I think. I would happily pay for a massage and a shampoo, any day of the week, but there's nothing. I spoke to a member of staff this evening and was bemoaning the fact that you have to zigzag all over the place to get anywhere and that I loved the old lounge and she said she couldn't count the number of people who had said that. I love Qatar Airways, but this lounge is a bit of a fail for me - a great shame, because I spend about 4 hours here every couple of months.

Had a long layover here. Lounge is super impressive as far as the aesthetics go and the range of different seating options is good. The food was of a good standard: I ate upstairs and went for the mezze option rather than the a la carte. The staff were really friendly and helpful. I wanted somewhere to sleep and was lucky enough to get one of the quiet area cells. Not very comfortable, but I was able to get a few hours sleep and a shower before the next leg of my flight. Overall, a really good experience: felt much less busy and cluttered that the equivalent in Dubai.

The business class lounge is horrible for more than 1-2 hours. A 7 hour layover is an ordeal given the absence of facilities for lying down to sleep. If you find the quiet area tucked away just off the main dining area there are no loungers, or blankets or pillows - but I was offered pyjamas! The room reverberates - too much stone, metal and wood. The facilities are spotless and staff very polite and helpful.

This has to be one of the most dramatic interior spaces at any airport, anywhere. The size of at least several football fields with several levels, it is both restful and convenient. While we sampled just a bit of the food, the mezze and the rest looked wonderful. We were there mid- morning, and the space seemed almost empty. Staff were terrific, helpful and informative.

I was in transit for almost 9 hours so delighted that the lounge is now fully operational. As much as I loved the old premium terminal there were times when it would be so crowded it was impossible to get a seat but that was often due to passengers taking up a table and three chairs for the coats, bags or newspapers, no such problem now as there is a range of different types of chair and sofas spread around the bottom floor in different areas. The design is exceptional with a very nice water feature. At the time I' usually there, the lounge tends to be quite busy when I arrive but after a few hours its almost empty. As this was the first time I' had any time to spend there I had a good walk around and bumped into two members of the staff of the old premium lounge who remembered me from previous times. There are two restaurants one on each floor, a number of deli type counters and a few places where you could help yourself to tee, coffee or soft drinks at any time. I tried a number of different chairs before managing to find an vacant sofa where I could stretch out for a few hours. Later I tried one of the work stations so I could use the USB charging unit, each of the stations has a small bag of snacks and a bottle of water. I'd just finished changing the phone and reading the printed copies of the UK newspapers when staff told me that breakfast was being served in the upstairs restaurant. All the staff were helpful and friendly.

Qatar Airways new business class lounge is up and running and is quite exceptional. A simpler, more elegant version of Emirates lounge in Dubai. I was there when it was not very crowded, so it will be interesting to see what it's like when it is full - that was the worst part of the old premium lounge. The lounge has 2 dining facilities, several snack areas and bars, lots of seating, a business area and, as with its old premium lounge, a lot of staff being helpful. Big and airy, it is open to the new terminal but the noise did not seem to be a problem. There are numerous zones for seating, broken up by architectural screen walls, interior plantscaping and changes to the floor level. Most seats have a touchpad for announcements and surfing, and a small set up of bottled water and simple snacks. Aesthetically the design is flawless.

The business class lounges at the new airport in Doha are sill under construction and won't be open for another 3 months, a fact you will only find out at checking as we did. There is a temporary first and business class lounge but access is highly restricted due to their limited space and normal oneworld status privileges don't apply. The temporary first class lounge is cramped, hot, offers a coffee machine with a few snacks. If you are going to be in transit for any length of time recommend you avoid the temporary lounges and head to the transit hotel instead, or stay in the main concourse where it's cooler and less congested. I am very surprised that they didn't put the building of their new premium lounges as a priority prior to the new airport opening.

Cost for the Oryx lounge is 40USD. Given the state of Doha airport whilst the new one is being constructed, I think it well worth the money. Showers alone after a long haul are worthwhile, and the buffet, whilst simple, is plentiful and the coffee good. Spacious, clean and plenty of seating.

The Premium is huge but there are often too many passengers using it. Staff are very courteous and tried very hard and found tables for us in minutes. Lots of choices in buffet food and drinks. However quality on soup and hot dishes are so-so. Arabian snacks are impeccable and are worthy to try. Lots of bar stands for bar services. Bathrooms are spotless as staff will clean all stations before another passenger will use the toilet. The game room was closed and no one was there. The playroom lacks facility and was not attended. There is a Duty Free just for premium customers, but there are not many exciting goods there. Generally cannot fault the Premium Terminal. There probably is not a better lounge than QR's Terminal. However, they have raised the expectation too high that it is hard to meet the expectation. Hopefully they will have a larger Premium Terminal when new airport opens, as they need a terminal that is at least 4 times larger than this one to make it a comfy lounge and allow them to continue to expand.

Qatar Airways uses in Milano (Malpensa) the Sala Montale lounge (B-pier, non-Schengen) for their premium frequent flyers and business class passengers. The lounge is marvelous. Its new, interesting design, gorgeous view of the airport, aircrafts’ trafficking just outside the huge, panorama windows overlooking starts and landings and a handful of international gates. The lounge is very clean. Furniture, composition, and art provide an elegant mixture of privacy and plenum options for travelers. On the minus is a stunning lack of hot dishes, the only hot dish available is instant noodles. Snacks are many and drinks are even more, inclusive of Italian champagne (spumante). Fruits and juices are plenty and coffee machines likewise. Italian cheeses, salamis, minipizza’s etc. could also have been a nice addition. Toilets lack shower but are well designed. WiFi is a bit tricky to connect to but works well once connected.

LHR lounge deserves the rave reviews. Excellent restaurant quality food and service, with a knockout wine list. Lunch of crayfish washed down with a premier cru bourgogne! Absolutely no skimping on anything, and everything works. Delightful staff with a sense of humour. Faultless. We felt vaguely guilty about such luxury! Doha premium terminal was busier but not far behind in quality. We had no trouble finding quiet seating on both visits. Both lounges are better than any others we have used in the last decade. The bus transfers to and from aircraft are a minor issue and actually interesting; problem solved shortly with the new terminal.

First visit arrived from Hong Kong 0505 : huge airy lounge, relatively low crowd, plenty of lounge chairs & tables available. Hot buffet meals in restaurant area looked ok, but I didn't sample. Food/bakery in lounge area had a small selection including breads, cheeses, yoghurts, olives, meat slices etc. Disappointed a true cappuccino wasn't available, no decaf tea or coffee. Toilets staffed with several cleaners was very good. I enjoyed a refreshing shower. Second visit very busy, took a little time to find a table. WiFi worked well. Toilets busy, very clean as cleaner checked briefly after each person. Small dessert slices quite nice. Much more variety and quantity in lounge bakery - excellent. Still no cappuccino nor decaf available from bar. Overall an impressive lounge in layout and style, but no decaf tea or coffee.

A tale of 2 halves. Arrived outbound around midnight, the lounge was packed and had to ask a member of staff to help in locating a couple of seats (which they did within 5 mins). The facility is good but is overwhelmed by sheer numbers turning it into a below average experience. Departed flustered and irritated. Inbound, arrived around midday and what a different experience. Lots of space with about 10% of seats occupied. Tried the restaurant which had both buffet and a la carte available - good food and good wine made for an excellent lunch. Shower facilities clean and pleasant with lots of amenities available. Try and pick your transit time! Scores reflect an average of the 2 experiences.

A very impressive lounge. It is massive, with loads of seating areas. There are dining areas, lounging areas and snoozing areas. Selection of food and beverages is very good. Wide variety, fresh, and tasty. There is no reading material, but WiFi is fast and free. The only let down is the bathroom facilities. 6 showers for several hundred passengers does not work very well.

A joy - understated and elegant throughout and more like a hotel than a lounge. Though not the biggest there are areas for relaxing, a cocktail bar, a deli with bistro style dining area and a more formal brasserie. Attentive staff and the chicken satay I tried while sitting at the bar hit the spot.
