My layover in Doha (DOH) was too short for even a nap, but if you ever find yourself there with a long layover, a relaxation area is available.
During my recent transit in Doha, I wanted to shower before my longhaul to New York. I proceeded to the shower area I’ve used during past visits, but there was a long waiting list. The attendant advised me, instead, to go to the lounge’s second shower area.
I did not even know there was an additional shower area, but proceeded past the café, around the corner, continued past the bathrooms, and came to another shower area. That’s not all I found…there was a huge quiet area.
These weren’t bedrooms like in the Al Safwa lounge, but nice individual cubicles with easy chairs and the lights turned down. Many were occupied, but there were several open.
If all the sleeping cubicles are occupied, you can add your name to the list at the shower counter and will be paged when one becomes available.
Need a blanket or pillow? Those are available by request as well.
Some lounges do not offer sleeping rooms in an attempt to discourage passengers from staying too long. But at the Al Mourjan Lounge in Doha, Qatar Airways offers a nice quiet area for long layovers.
