Properties for rent in Umm Salal are considered by many who are looking for rentals in Qatar outside of the capital. You can find various apartments and villas for rent in Umm Salal, which are often cheaper than those in some parts of Doha.
Umm Salal, sometimes spelt as 'Umm Slal', is a municipality in Qatar situated in the centre portion of the country. It is the only municipality in Qatar that does not have any coastline. It has good road connections with the Q1 Expressway, known as the Al Shamal Road, running alongside the East of the municipality.
The northern part of Umm Salal is primarily occupied by agricultural land due to the presence of a large aquifer. The districts of 'Umm Al Amad' and 'Umm Ebairiya' are in the north and have very few homes to rent.
In the southern part of Umm Salal, you can find 'Al Kharaitiyat', part of 'Izghawa' and 'Umm Salal Mohammed', sometimes spelt as 'Umm Salal Mohammad', known as the 'capital' of the Umm Salal municipality. It is in Umm Salal Mohammed where you can find some more significant residential compounds with many family villas for rent.
Above Umm Salal Mohammed, you will find the Umm Salal Ali district. There are some homes for rent in Umm Salal Ali, including villas and apartments and they are reasonably priced.

The gigantic mall covers a staggering 244,000m2 and is home to a whole array of national and international retail brands, many well-loved family restaurants and posh fine dining eateries. The mall also has a vast entertainment wing with cinema, Angry Birds theme park, Virtuocity - a huge indoor gaming arena, Escape rooms and Snow Dunes - Qatar's own indoor wintery theme park.

Apartments for rent in Umm Salal are mainly of the villa apartment type, so you will find that some large villas have been converted into smaller apartment units, hence the term villa apartment. In Umm Salal, it is not typical to find the larger purpose-built apartment buildings or towers commonly seen in other parts of Qatar, especially the capital. So these villa apartments will not have the many amenities found with apartments in towers or buildings; instead, they are more private and secluded. This is why you can find cheap apartments in Umm Salal.
