You're welcome, and I'm so envious that you'll soon be in Istanbul! Yes, the reviews of the Ottoman Imperial do look good, and one of the forum posters, Leotrivr, just stayed there and confirmed they are legitimate reviews. I hope you'll let us know all about your trip after you get back. Have a great time...
