Found myself at the Oryx Rotana Doha hotel after finding out our connecting flight was delayed more than eight hours and was sent here by Qatar Airways to spend the day before catching a later flight.

Situated in front of the now old and unused airport and some distance from the centre of Doha, the Oryx Rotana Doha features an outdoor pool and a spa. Refined cuisine and live jazz music can be enjoyed at the club.

Soundproofed rooms have a seating area and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. They include large bathrooms with walk-in rain showers, bathrobes and hairdryer.

Doha’s landmarks, including the Museum of Islamic Art, are located on the waterfront Corniche, a 5-minute drive away. Take a taxi to the corniche and shopping district, with eight hours in hand it felt like it was enough.
