12 hour Doha Layover - Oryx or Hotel

Jump to last reply

My daughter and fiance are coming to visit us in Jakarta. They are flying Qatar and will, on the outbound flight, have a 12 hour layover. They will have left DC at midnight, arriving in Doha at 6:30 pm.

Should they opt for the Oryx Lounge? I understand you pay $40 per person. Should they go to a hotel? Is there one at the airport? Should they try to go into Doha for dinner? Is a visa a problem?

Thanks for the input. It makes their long trip even longer, and I'm hoping to help them out with invaluable advice from Fodorites.
