Qatar rental apartments can be found almost everywhere across the country, and they are the most versatile type of accommodation for rent, suiting most renters. Most people will begin their search for a property in Qatar by looking at apartments for rent in Doha. But as people become more familiar with Qatar, they soon discover the wide variety of options available in alternative locations outside the capital where they can find an apartment for rent.
As most apartments are set out over a single floor, they are referred to as 'Flats' in some regions. The term apartment is used extensively in Europe, North America, and places that use American English. The term flat is used in the UK, India, and places that use British English.
Qatar has a huge expatriate population from all over the world, so it is common to see both terms used interchangeably, and you can find many flats for rent in Qatar. Find your next flat for rent here on Property Oryx!
If you are looking for a luxurious or unique style of Qatar apartment for rent, you may want to consider some of the options discussed below.
A Duplex apartment is an apartment that is set out over two floors. You will find beautiful examples of duplex apartments for rent in The Pearl, Doha. You can also find some stunning duplex apartments for rent in Mushaireb in Downtown Doha. This brand new residential development is the world's first sustainable downtown regeneration project located in the heart of the capital.
A Triplex apartment is an apartment that is set out over three floors and can give the feeling of living in a house rather than an apartment. The accommodation is set out over three floors so that the occupants can enjoy more privacy. It is common to find that triplex apartments for rent are penthouses, but you can find some regular triplex apartments without the hefty penthouse rental price tags!
A Penthouse apartment is usually found on the highest floor of a residential block; sometimes, they are set out on more than one floor. Penthouses are often considered the best, most luxurious type of apartment, and they are also the most expensive kind of apartment for rent. If you are looking for luxury apartments in Qatar, most penthouses for rent in Qatar can be found in The Pearl, Doha.
Suppose you are looking for a large rental apartment in Qatar but don't quite want to pay a penthouse's rental premium. In that case, you can look at 4 bedroom apartments for rent in Doha or even 5 bedroom apartments as an alternative. The Property Oryx search can help you find a perfect apartment for rent in Qatar.
Compound apartments for rent in Qatar are apartments set within a residential compound. If you don't like living in a residential tower block, this type of apartment for rent may appeal more and still offer an array of amenities.
Apartments for rent in compounds are an excellent option for couples and families. Many offer plenty of shared facilities, including health-related and relaxation amenities like a gym, a sauna, a pool and various other spa facilities. For those looking for sporting and entertainment amenities, some compounds will have games rooms with billiards tables and table tennis and entertainment facilities such as cinema rooms and perhaps even a function hall.
Villa apartments for rent in Qatar may be an option for those who prefer a more private apartment. Some larger villas have been converted into apartments, and these are known as villa apartments. They often may not have many amenities. They could be a good option if you are looking for cheap apartments for rent in Qatar, as sometimes they can be more affordable than standard rental apartments in residential towers or large apartment blocks.
Rather than get a monthly rent apartment in Qatar and be tied into a contract for the typical minimum of one or two years, you may prefer to look for a short-term apartment for rent instead. You can find short-term apartments for rent in Qatar in many locations, and some of these are hotel apartments or serviced apartments which come furnished and with extra benefits like breakfast and weekly housekeeping. You can search for 'short-term' apartments for rent right here on the Property Oryx portal by selecting the 'short-term' option from the Other Filters menu.
The quickest and easiest way to find an apartment for rent in Qatar is to look online and use a good quality property listing website, such as this one ;-)
Our comprehensive search facility allows users to search for precisely what they want. Use the filters in the search to select the location, property type, price, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, furnishing and minimum and maximum budget level. In addition, you can go to town and be as picky as you want and specify all the amenities you would like your rental apartment to have from our extensive list. You can even use the 'Other Filters' list to choose apartments with 'bills included' or apartments with 'no deposit' to pay for securing the tenancy contract.
There are many locations and even particular roads or neighbourhoods within Doha, the capital, favoured by those looking to rent an apartment. These include:
Outside of the capital Doha, these are popular locations to rent an apartment in Qatar:
Once you have found a few apartments that you like, we suggest that you contact the agent. This can be done quite easily either by phone, email or even WhatsApp. It is highly advisable to view the rental apartments you are interested in as often the images will vary slightly or not showcase the apartment to its fullest. Viewing in person will give you a real feel for the location and surroundings, including the nearest supermarkets, malls, public transport and road links. If you have children, you may want to look at the childcare facilities nearby or perhaps look into your daily commute for work to make sure the apartment location suits your needs.
If you have any questions, make sure to note them and ask them at the viewing. Not all agents will fully list the features in the apartment for rent, and sometimes you will find that there is much more on offer than stated in the listing.
The monthly rental cost of an apartment in Qatar will vary depending on the location, the size, the amenities the apartment has, and whether it is furnished. Some apartments for rent could have bills like water, electricity, WiFi, or QatarCool (district cooling) included, which is definitely a plus.
To give an example, a 1 bedroom apartment for rent in Qatar can cost anywhere between approximately 2,500 QAR per month and 11,000 QAR per month.
Fully furnished apartments for rent in Qatar are the best option if you are staying in Qatar for a limited or uncertain duration or don't want the hassle and expense of buying furniture. Of course, it goes without saying that taking an apartment for rent with furniture will always cost more than taking the same apartment unfurnished. On average, a smaller furnished apartment could cost between 500 QAR per month to 1500 QAR per month more to rent.
If you are not looking for a fully furnished apartment and prefer to take an unfurnished rental apartment in Qatar instead, then select the 'unfurnished' option in the 'Furnishing' filter in the search and find your ideal rental apartment. If you find a furnished apartment and want to take it unfurnished, try speaking with the agent, as some landlords are flexible and will consider removing their furniture.
