From gleaming malls totraditional market souqs, Qatar is a shopper’s paradise
Doha is a vibrant city with many wonderful surprises, most of which are just a stroll away from the hotel making it the ideal base to explore the city.
The hotel is located on the city’s famous Corniche, which is perfect for enjoying an evening stroll taking in the fresh Arabian Gulf air, the glittering waters of Doha Bay and the unforgettable skyscraper skyline.
Opposite the hotel is Qatar’s newest landmark, the already iconic Museum of the Islamic Arts, based on an idyllic artificial island. Designed by IM Pei, the creative force behind the Louvre Pyramid, the museum offers one of the most comprehensive collections of Islamic artefacts in the world and is a must see Qatar highlight.
The Mövenpick Hotel Doha is also just a short taxi ride from some of the best upmarket shopping malls in the country as well as a short walk from Souq Waqif, an authentic local market offering a labyrinth of narrow streets packed with sellers of perfumes, jewellery, clothing, antiques and traditional souvenirs as well as a range of local restaurants.
