Location.- well, although not directly in downtown, Bratislava isn't that big, and all the important places are just a few minutes away walking. Cleanliness.- no problems, everything was great and the rooms look new.
Rooms.- nice and confortable. some issues though, the shower has no curtains so you have to struggle not to get everything wet. All the rooms have Internet that's actually high speed, and you don't have to struggle with users and pins like in other hotels.

Food service and rastaurant is very poor for 4 star Hotel ..

We stayed for two nights as a couple, the hotel looks new, we had a spacious room, clean, but no shower curtain & bathmat in bathroom. Breakfast was included and ok, free Internet, parking was €23 for two nights.
Helpful & friendly staff at reception, 10 minutes walk into the lovely old town.
All in all, a good place to stay.

Location.- well, although not directly in downtown, Bratislava isn't that big, and all the important places are just a few minutes away walking. Location not a problem at all.

Cleanliness.- no problems, everything was great and the rooms look new

Rooms.- nice and confortable. some issues though, the shower has no curtains so you have to struggle not to get everything wet. All the rooms have Internet that's actually high speed, and you don't have to struggle with users and pins like in other hotels.

Staff.- impeccable. They let us check out a little late, and they helped in a lot, showing us step-by-step how to get anywhere we wanted. They all speak English very well.

I definitely recommend it!

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.

Room Tip: Ensure there is an appropriate number of beds!

A good 4-star hotel. A save parking for the car and a correct room. The hotel looks very new and clean. The breakfast is good, without being exceptional. One big minus point for us: there was no shower(curtain) in the room (we had). Overall a nice experience for a correct price.

Room Tip: Ask for a double bed if you want one and inform for a room with a shower. There is enough parking sp...

Good, central location in Bratislava, helpful and welcoming staff at the fron desk, quite modern property. My room was spaciouss and furniture looks like new, cleanlines very good, nice bathroom. Free Wifi but sometimes very slow. The breakfast was OK but the choice of food quite poor and basic. Generally it's good choice for business travellers.
