The Hotel Saffron is located 10-15 minutes walk from both the main station and the old town: 2 stops on the tram to the latter. It has no obvious signage on the street so is a little difficult to find. It's down the alleyway next to Subway! This leads to a large modern complex that looks good. CHeck in took an absolute age, could have had a pint in the time it took to issue a key card.
Rooms are well furnished. I booked for 1 person and they gave me a twin room with only 1 single bed made up. I did NOT appreciate that. Typical central European rubbish pillows. The bathroom has no shower as such. A shower head is located just above the bath tub. No idea how you're supposed to use it but a sitting down shower is counter-intuitive.
No instructions on how to use the air-con. If indeed the random dials even were aircon!
Breakfast is well presented with plenty of choice in a large dining hall. This was a really pleasant room to use with lots of space. They did a good job of keeping breakfast items warm where other hotels let them go cold.
In summary, a modern hotel with lots of potential. Sort out the service issues like lengthy check in and silly shower design, and the distance to the town centre would be tolerable.
