Old Al Salatah, also known as "As Salatah", is a district in the municipality of Doha. The district together with Al Mirqab forms Zone 18 of Qatar. The district was named after the Sulaiti tribe, who owned large plots of land in the area. Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani selected the area as the seat of government in the early 1900s due to its close proximity to the sea and ease of access for vessels. It is primarily a commercial district and very close to the Old Airport, Corniche, Amiri Diwan and Souq Waqif. In the 1970s, the whole district was redeveloped in a push to modernize the city. The Civil Aviation Authority and the National Museum of Qatar are located in the district.
The area has good road links and 4 bus routes serve the area every day of the week. Major Roads that serve the area are: Ras Abu Aboud Street on the south edge of the district and the Al Corniche Street across the east and north edges of the district. Doha Port lies to the north of the district. The homes to rent in Old Salata are mainly apartments found in residential blocks or serviced apartments in modern blocks or hotels.
