Got a great deal on this hotel through Expedia, and was happy it was so close to the train station where we were arriving. Unfortunately, the area around the train station isn't the best. There are numerous strip clubs and lots of questionable people hanging about. There are also no restaurants to eat at, aside from the fast food type places at the train station, or the overpriced restaurant in the hotel. There is a grocery story on the same block though which was a plus, and it is right by a main metro and tram line. If you stay here I would definitely suggest eating elsewhere before heading back to the hotel, and being careful after dark.
Aside from the location though, the rooms were great! Our room was quite large, and even had a pull-out couch. The bathroom is nice too, and everything was very clean. The staff was very helpful, and even gave us a free welcome drink b/c our room wasn't quite ready when we checked in. Internet is free as well.
We did enjoy our stay but I am not sure we would stay again simply b/c of the area. I prefer a place where I can walk to restaurants nearby and not worry about safety. The hotel itself though is very nice and was a great value.
