The high quality of our properties means that we only work with top international operators such as Hilton. Aleph Doha Residences is a landmark and hugely impressive addition to Doha’s beautiful skyline.” 

Mr. Tarek M.

We are delighted to build on our long-standing relationship with Hilton and to bring a truly unique experience to the market with Aleph Doha Residences. At ARTIC, we are always looking to bring unique products and services to the markets we serve and Aleph Doha Residences is entirely in keeping with this in terms of its excellent location, architecture and quality. Aleph brand is fully developed by ARTIC where we first launched it in Rome, with our Aleph Rome Hotel, also operating under Hilton’s Curio Collection brand, and with the success we have in this collaboration we decided to expand the model to Doha. We are very proud to be expanding our operating portfolio in Doha with this latest addition to ARTIC’s growing investment portfolio and we are looking forward to announcing further new openings soon.”

The hotel’s 52nd floor features the highest indoor swimming pool in Doha, offering stunning views across the city. In addition, a diverse collection of food and beverage offerings within Aleph Doha Residences ensures that living is comfortable and varied:  Mondo Café is a serene venue to meet and eat.  The minimalist décor with vibrant splashes of color, combined with sumptuous vegetarian, vegan and free-range offerings make the Café the ideal place for pre- or post-workout refreshments. Food is fresh and there is a pantry which is full 24/7, allowing guests to grab-and-go, work or relax at any time of the day. Chefs are also just one quick call away to prepare the freshest garden and farm produce which go straight to guests’ tables or apartments.  A comprehensive room service menu is full of healthy ingredients that are made ready to cook at home. Easy-to-follow instructions allow for a takeaway with a difference, allowing guests to grab-and-go, heat, reheat or cook.

“We are delighted to have opened Aleph Doha Residences, an original and remarkable property”, said Daniel Van Wyk, general manager, Aleph Doha Residences, Curio Collection by Hilton. “With its prime location in West Bay, diverse dining options and spacious accommodations, the property is the smart choice for visitors and residents alike and we look forward to welcoming guests."
