we were warned about the area of town, but never felt uncomfortable ourselves, although we didn't go out at night. uber is very easy to use all around the city, so that's how we mostly got around. the hotel itself was nice. huge rooms since it used to be apartments, nice restaurant. i only felt that the bathroom in the room had a few things lacking (old hardware that was loose and very limited towel service), but overall, we thought our stay was wonderful for the price.
