Next to Railway Station and City Center. Good value for money. No frills hotel so don't look for a five star luxury. This hotel is really budget hotel with a friendly staff, clean rooms and close to city center.

Saffron is one of the well known hotels in Mangalore, at a pretty convenient, central location. We stayed there in June for a couple of days, and the place was clean, comfortable beds. The breakfast was alright, nothing fancy, idli, toast, puri, and we asked for eggs which they provided. The a-la carte food for lunch or dinner was just... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the nice words you had to say about our hotel. But at the same time, it is sad that you are blaming us for charging you for the overstay. In your review you indicated that you overstayed for 2 hours, but we have bills singed by you that show that you have overstayed 5+ hours.... More

I stayed for the 2nd time at this hotel. The check in was quick and the rooms were quite comfortable. The best part about this hotel is the location. Very close to malls and shopping areas. The staff are friendly and courteous. All in all a nice option in Mangalore.
