Stayed for 3 days in the executive suite. Excellent room and view. A good Restaurant especially their breakfast options. One of the lift was under maintenance. Would recommend it because it is centrally located and walking distance to City Centre Mall, Central Market and Railway Station.

I will attempt to clarify how the Saffron Boutique Hotel is not a Boutique Hotel by a long way. While the restaurant does an good job at drawing guests, regretfully however the same cannot be said about the rooms. A boutique hotel should be foremost small and the Saffron is.This intimate size should then produce a characteristic personal feeling and... More

I had a wedding to attend and had the pleasure of staying at The Saffron for a week. I booked over phone and it was quick and easy. When I arrived, I was shown to my room within 2 minutes. Hardly any paperwork and they didn't even ask for deposit or credit card details! I have never seen any hotel... More

Visited Mangalore in June. I hotel was situated at good location. The room was clean and in good condition. Room service was quick and prompt. Restaurant food seems average to us. If we visiting third time we definitely book the same hotel.

I spent a night at the Saffron Hotel in Mangalore, India in May 2014 and was very impressed by the courteous staff, excellent breakfast and large clean rooms. The kitchen staff took pride in the presentation of their food during a late night dinner and early breakfast buffet. After experiencing problems at several ATMs along the streets near the hotel,...
