This hotel is very nice and clean. Rooms are large and air conditioned, staff is extremely helpful and friendly, not to mention their English is very good. I did get a terrible room one night (broken AC that smelled like a swamp, and the only window opened directly onto a patio where the night crew sat smoking and chatting all night. The staff was very helpful in getting a new room first thing in the morning.

This hotel is not located very near the major tourist sites in the city, which is good and bad. If your goal is to visit tourist sites on a budget, the taxi rides may hamper you a bit, though taxis are relatively inexpensive in Turkey. There is very little within walking distance and the steep hills will make it impossible for many people. A taxi however, will get you to the major sites (Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet, Galata, Golbaşi, etc) in less than fifteen minutes if traffic is not worse than normal, and for around 15 TR (like $8).

There are a couple of restaurants across the street that are descent, the hotel restaurant is also nice, but kind of pricey for lunch and dinner. If your fit and adventurous a ten minute walk up the hill and around the back side of the hospital will get you to the wealthy and trendy part of tow with shops, cafes, and restaurants that are expensive but serve really good fresh foods. Just keep in mind that this is the neighborhood where the residents speak Turkish with an American accent because they think it makes them look more wealthy and powerful.

I stayed at MIM on my way to another country, and took two days of personal time to visit the nearby clinic for a post-surgery checkup. Thus, one has to keep in mind that the location of this hotel is convinient for the clinic visitors first of all; although I would not say that the location is bad: you can explore the neighborhood by foot, walk to the nearest metro station also by foot (osmanbey), etc., and it is a charming area I must admit. Never had an issue to find the hotel. It is also a 6 minute drive taxi drive away from Taksim, but since Taksim is a total mess these days, you wouldn't want to go there anyway. The hotel building is not very appealing - a typical 90s style - blue glass and steel, but inside it is very nice. I had no problem with anything in that hotel: room, breakfast (by the way, it was a very good one with good assortment), staff (pleasant and helpful) and everything else what comes with it!

I can confirm many of the previous comments. The Mim Hotel is not conveniently located near any major (or minor) tourist sites. A taxi is essential to go just about any place of interest to a tourist. The hotel is located near the bottom of a steep one-way street. I stayed at the Mim because it was convenient to the offices of the UN Population Fund, which are within walking distance.

The staff is friendly and helpful. Internet access is free and the breakfast is reasonably good, otherwise the food in the restaurant for other meals is mediocre at best. There are few restaurants in the immediate area, The water pressure in the shower leaves much to be desired as is the steadiness of the flow of hot water (at least on the 8th floor).

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room that does not face the street
