Had a nightmare finding the place, spent 45 min in a Taxi in the middle of the night driving around aimlessly. For some reason they don't give you neither contact details nor directions so it's near impossible to find. We only eventually found it because an extremely kind employee of the Mövenpick Hotel got into his car and showed us the way. If we had at least had a telephone number, the taxi driver could have called up and asked for directions.
So to make people's life easier in the future, here are the contact details:
Le Mirage Sharq
Tel.: (+974) 4444 3778
Also don't book a taxi to go to the airport through the hotel! They charge 40 QAR for the 10 min drive - we flagged a meter taxi down in the street and paid 10 QAR. Such a rip-off by the hotel!! Don't be discouraged by the hotel staff saying you won't be able to get one in the street, that's simply not true!!
Apart from that we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The room was clean and spacious, bathroom nice and well equipped (with shower gel, shampoo, shaving kit, etc). Breakfast is alright, too. You get tea or coffee, apple or orange juice, toast, baguette and all sorts of croissants, ham, cheese, honey, jam, etc. We weren't offered any yoghurt or eggs but if you ask they kindly serve it up.
Location is ok, only about a 15 min walk from Souq Waqif, Museum of Islamic Art and the Corniche.
Considering hotel prices in Doha, this place really is great value for money (we paid 63€ per night incl. breakfast).
