Based upon the comments in my review, it seems that no major business class lounge divides readers more than Qatar Airways’ Al Mourjan Business Class Lounge in Doha. I’m firmly in the fan camp and would even put this lounge in the running for the best business class lounge in the world.
Best Business Class Lounge In The World? My Case For Qatar Airways’ Al Mourjan Lounge
For years, the Turkish Airlines lounge in Istanbul was my favorite lounge in the world. That’s because of the delectable cuisine, superb coffee, and hotel-like sleeping accommodations available to select longhaul premium cabin travelers.
But excessive crowding at the Turkish Airlines lounges as well as its arcane rules for assigning sleeping rooms and poor internet mean it is no longer at the top of my list. There are many business class lounge around the world that I like. In the USA, the oneworld lounge in Los Angeles and most United Polaris lounges are excellent. In the UK, the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is superb. I’ve also heard great things about the new Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer lounge in Singapore, though I have yet to check it out.
Quite honestly, though, my favorite business class lounge in the world is currently the Al Mourjan Lounge in Doha. Here’s why:
- Superb meals
- Excellent drink options, including freshly-squeezed juice, coffee, nad a wide range of alcoholic options
- Multiple shower suites
- While no sleeping rooms (like the Al Safwa Lounge), there is a huge quiet area where you can reserve easy chairs that are intended for sleeping and there are no onerous restrictions on their use
- Stable internet and power ports easily within reach of most chairs
Look at my meals during the last two visits:
At what other business class lounge can you enjoy such a delicious meal?
And if you are craving something lighter, there’s a second restaurant with delicious sandwiches made-to-order:
I’m a huge fan of the Qatar Airways’ Al Mourjan Lounge in Doha and look forward to every visit.
Bottom line: this is a great lounge and perhaps even the best business class lounge in the world.
