Qatar Adds Thousands of Hotel Rooms for The World Cup

To accommodate an anticipated increase in passenger volume during the World Cup, Qatar Rail will also deploy 110 metro trains and extend daily running hours to 21 hours.

According to Bloomberg, fans attending the World Cup in Qatar can now book hundreds of hotel rooms that had previously been blocked off by the FIFA 2022 World Cup organizers.

FIFA and Qatar's Supreme Committee withheld the accommodations in order to give preference to the opposing teams, sponsors, and visitors of those sponsors, as well as to officials, royal guests, and ticketed supporters.

Thousands of unallocated rooms are suddenly being made available, however, a person with knowledge of the situation claims, in advance of the World Cup's scheduled start date of November 20.

In an effort to ease the scarcity, hotel management has been announcing that more rooms would become available in early October.

According to sources, Guy Hutchinson, president and chief executive of Rotana Hotel Management Corp., stated in an interview that "the availability picture would grow much, much broader."

Many of those questions will have immediate answers, she said.

He expects his buildings to be 90% or more occupied throughout the competition.

According to a Qatari spokeswoman, the nation is on target to provide 130,000 accommodations for the tournament, and more than 117,000 of those rooms are currently available.

Tents, Airbnb-style lodging, at least two cruise ships, and over 4,000 cabins are just a few of the hotel options available.

According to reports, the country has been working nonstop to be ready for the occasion, including upgrading the sewage systems to accommodate the 1.2 million expected guests during the duration of the month-long celebration.

The majority of visitors will arrive during the competition's first two weeks, and many will stay in neighboring countries like the United Arab Emirates while flying in and out on the same day. Qatar reopened a backup airport to handle an increase in aircraft.

The stadiums, which were essentially created from nothing, are finished. But despite having a 1 November completion date, at least a dozen hotels, including five-star hotels, are still being built. While other hotels will only have certain rooms ready, several hotels anticipate having all of their rooms and restaurants available in time for the event.

There are currently relatively few hotel rooms available for the first several nights of the competition, according to the official tournament website. However, there are more rooms available on the various hotel booking websites.

A private home, or villa, costs between QAR 787 and QAR 300 per night.

Daily flights

Qatar Airways announced in May its collaboration with regional airlines to empower World Cup ticket holders to travel to Qatar and back from countries in the region just for the day during the entire tournament, as more than a million fans are expected to descend on the Gulf nation for the eagerly awaited World Cup 2022.

The announcement included an increase of 30 daily rotation flights from flydubai between Dubai and Doha, 10 daily rotation flights from Kuwait Airways between Kuwait City and Doha, 24 daily rotation flights from Oman Air between Muscat and Doha, and 20 daily rotation flights from Riyadh and Jeddah to Doha.
