I stayed at HHK hotel for 3 nights in December. The hotel was a bit hard to find, located on a hill in a residential area west of the Grand Bazaar. But once you get over the initial search, the remaining experience is great. The hostess is really nice and helpful, the room and the hotel itself is antique and cultured but very clean, the view from the breakfast room is great, looking across the Golden Horn (not to mention the breakfast was included)! The room key is a huge piece of metal but you don't need to carry it around because you can always just leave it at the front desk when you leave the hotel and they will keep it for you until you return.
The view from my room is great also- one had a partial view of the Golden Horn, and the other two look out to the streets where local residents walk around. It definitely gives a feel of what it is like to live locally in Istanbul.
