When faced with an unexpected flight delay or a long layover in an airport, many weary travelers resign themselves to sleeping slouched over in a chair or stretched out on the cold floor until boarding time. For those travellers looking for some shut-eye, Doha Airport does offer free recliners in designated “rest zones”. As a popular transit airport, travellers with longer layovers will be relieved to know there is a transit hotel, where they can freshen up, catch up on emails, and snooze in a real bed.

Whether you need a room for a few hours or overnight, the information we have compiled below can help you find nearby hotels that offer day rooms and free or paid hotel shuttle service.

Of course, if you prefer to sleep in the airport terminal, we’ve got you covered there as well! Visit our Doha Airport Guide to find out how to survive a layover or night inside the airport.
