The location is really very convenient: very close to Union Square, within a short walk from many bus and train lines, near several restaurants, cafes and shops. There are some homeless people in adjacent streets and in Union Square itself but although I have been always by myself I have always felt save.
My room was tiny, quite tired and very noise (the main street is really noisy from very early until very late). However, the room was pretty clean as it was the bathroom which was also very small. The wi-fi was free and ok.
The staff is helpful and kind.
The hotel does not serve breakfast but there is an excellent breakfast place next door, 25% off for hotel clients.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay but I found the hotel overpriced.
