Qatar Airways Al Mourjan Business Class Lounge, Hamad Airport Qatar – Business Traveller


(techno music) – Well, welcome to the Al
Mourjan Business Class Lounge at Doha Hamad International Airport. Absolutely fantastic facility. I will give you a tour around and you can make up your own mind. Meanwhile, Diet Coke ’cause
it’s still quite early. (techno music) One of the most amazing
things about this lounge is the water feature behind me. I don’t know if you can
see the drops of water, they’re actually coming from
beneath rather from the top. It does sometimes make it look as though the water’s dropping from the ceiling. Still along with the
staircase, the two floors, the fantastic food, it’s quite a facility. (techno music) And away from that main area where the water feature is
there’s also quieter areas such as this one where you
can actually just sit down and get away from the high ceilings. And actually if there
is some natural light have a look out of the window as well. (techno music) There are plenty of
screens around the lounge to make sure that you
don’t miss your flight. But do bear in mind that they don’t make flight announcements, ’cause they’d be doing them every couple
of seconds I suppose. What you can do is look
at the screens on the wall but they also have these devices which are kind of like massive iPads. Then you can do a search
facility or just simply look which one is your flight. (techno music) Always find a bit of peace and quiet if you look for it. (techno music) The lounge has pretty much everything. We’re in the games room, there’s more than one games room. You can see they’ve got
table football, various electronic games and then next
door is a business center. So, you can always dump the kids in here and actually get some work done next door. Just in case you think it’s all about high-end leisure, here’s
the business center. They’ve got everything
here as well as computers they’ve also got printers
that can be used. (techno music) Okay, so that’s the tour of the lounge. Now, I don’t wanna give
anyone a false impression I’ve been through this
lounge many many times and it is one of the best
lounges I think in the world, certainly best business
class lounges in the world. But it does get very very busy. Right now it’s sort of
between half past 10 and 11 o/clock on a Thursday morning, and I have never ever seen it this empty. The reason is of course that
there are banks of flights that go out of here and this
is between one of those banks. So, that’s why I could
walk around with a camera. Normally I wouldn’t have even attempted it because there’s just too
many passengers in here. It never gets uncomfortably crowded, but certainly for things like the showers, there’s certainly a
waiting list for those. I remember one time I had to wait 30 minutes, 40 minutes for a shower. Not a disaster if you’ve got
a two or three hour layover. And also for the food and beverage, you know there can be, not queues but certainly it’s a busy time. But then that’s because
it’s a growing airline and it’s nice to be able to show you this lounge when it’s
empty and you can see it all cleaned and sparkling ready for the next bank of passengers. I hope you found it
useful, and we’ll one day get in the first class lounge.

  1. Good to see another great travel review from you. I'm flying QR for the first time in October so found this very useful. Is the QR First Class Lounge (the one that can be accessed by BA Gold/OW Emerald passengers) any less crowded at peak times?

  2. I find this lounge long on style, patchy on substance. The big pool in the center is difficult to navigate. I find the food dull & unimaginative. The showers didn't have a hair dryer (nor did my shower neighbor!). Not one of my favorite OW lounges for sure.

  3. I love Qatar but they have started strange policy's last 3 flights booked buisness on way out return upgraded with miles first 2 ok now if u upgrade you are not allowed to use buisness lounge you get put in crap lounge crap food no champagne, so I had to pay to use Qatar lounge Bangkok and Doha ! Joke used miles that's the whole point of being loyal customer, even started getting worse and worse champagne brands.
    But I do still like Qatar over all but I think people will complain that are gold and platinum members.

  4. Not much shown ; commentary has marred the VDO. I have visited this lounge and found it much more attrative than the boring description.

  5. My wife and I have used this lounge a number of times and really liked it. We had no problems with showers and soon found the downstairs food area was vastly superior to the restaurant o the upper level. Didn't look at the sleeping area but will next time.
