I stayed here with family, for 4 consecutive days in the first half of March, 2014. First of all, best thing about this is its location. Its in Hampankatta, the heart of Mangalore. Saffron is just 100 metres from K S Rao road, which houses almost every vital location of Mangalore. Location is perfectly ideal for travelers on business, tourism,... More

My first time in this hotel and amazed by the proximity to the Mangalore central railway station and the comfort. Very receptive team right from the security to the room service. I occupied an executive room, with was plush with awesome ambience and comfortable lighting. High speed WIFI was a plus.
