2 bhk (or 2 bedroom) properties are those that have two allocated bedrooms. They are sometimes referred to as 2 bhk, meaning 2 bedrooms, a hall and a kitchen. This type of property would suit a couple or small family. There are 2 bhk properties, mainly apartments that are advertised as having a separate office or maid/driver room within the apartment, some have their own attached bathroom too. It is advisable to check the facilities being offered and also the layout of the property as some agents do not always list all the amenities fully. It is possible to find 2 bedroom properties in the form of an apartment in an apartment block or tower, a penthouse, a section of a villa, a townhouse or serviced apartment in a residential block or hotel.
West Bay is not a district in its own right contrary to popular belief, but rather the name "West Bay" refers to a comprisal of districts on the east coast of Qatar, just north of Central Doha. The area when "mapped" out actually consists of the districts of Al Dafna, Al Qassar and Onaiza and West Bay Lagoon. The area is modern with some of the tallest skyscrapers in Qatar which are home to the Business centre of the capital. The area also houses many Head Offices and administrative buildings of the State set against the clear blue backdrop of the Persian Gulf waters, forming the "Doha Skyline" that is most famously seen in imagery of Doha. The Diplomatic Area is also located within West Bay.
The area has good road links as one would expect including the Al Corniche Street, Diplomatic Street, Omar Al Mukhtar Street, Majlis Al Taawon Street and the beginning of the Lusail Expressway. West Bay has its own Metro station on the Red Line and bus route. It is a very popular location for rentals and there is a wide choice of property types and sizes available to suit all and a convenient location to rent in if one is looking to be close to the Business District and Central Doha without the congestion.
