Musheireb Boutique Hotel

Boutique hotel in Doha

This 14-room boutique hotel just outside the hubbub of the main souq is decorated with extravagant Qatari design features, studded velvet sofas, plush carpets, gilded mirrors and lush purples and sky blues, which ensure it's neither dark nor overwhelmingly heavy. There's an on-site spa and gym, too.

Owned by the Tivoli Hotel group, it's located next to the horse and camel pens.
