The location is not ideal for a family. The hotel is located close to the train station, but is located in a seedy part of town (about a block and a half radius all around). The street was populated with prostitutes and homeless people, some of which were using drugs. The night brought several visits from the police breaking up fights. The hotel is also surrounded by seedy businesses (strip clubs/bars and sex stores), which brought loud street noise at night that interupted sleep. The hotel itself was nice. Once you walk a block and a half either direction, the neighborhoods were better, with family friendly businesses and restaurants.
