Al Safwa First lounge exit/entry…layover

Al Safwa First lounge exit/entry…layover

  1. Anonymous

    Hi,

    Is is possible to visit the lounge (on an incoming flight) and then exit the airport (and then return later)? I arrive into DOH at 1am and plan on a 18 hour layover. But given the early hour, I’d like to get some rest in the lounge’s bed room before venturing out to the city.

    Thx!

    Should work in theory. The lounge attendants would not see that any differently than someone leaving the lounge to go to duty-free shopping.

    However, someone with experience transiting Doha may be able to chime in if the lounge is accessible via transit, or if you have to pass through customs/security.

    The Safwa lounge is very nice but per Lucky’s post in Feb the bedrooms are not guaranteed. Worst case you can take a shower, eat in the restaurant and sleep on a reclining chair. The attendants do not care if you leave the airport but you will need to go through immigration which is not a big deal. Doha is only about 20 mins away from the airport and you can pretty much see everything the city has to offer in a few hours.
