I just want to know your general opinion about hotel reviews in TA at the Istanbul section. I am planning to go to Istanbul for the first time and reading reviews there, I raised my doubts on its honesty.
Many hotels are filled with excellent 5 stars reviews by single-contribution reviewers. That seems staged up the hotel rank to the first pages. Some are even smarter to have several contributions but only at Istanbul or other Turkey areas with all 5 stars reviews. It seems so difficult for me to get real reviews by real travelers that share their honest opinions.
I am curious whether my feeling is similar with others.
