“It's horrible!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Yesterday I checked in this hotel. They gave me the room #202 with a minimum rental of 1550+taxes (although I was a student there wasn't any discount for me.) After entering the room, I got to know that there wasn't any phone there. And when I told it to a room service boy, he just completely ignored that. Even I was told to call the receptionist from my own phone. So I've been ordering things by going to their room. Anyways, when I entered the bathroom, I found the shower wasn't working.Rooms are not worth of rs 1550+taxes (i.e. 1665rs/night). They don't even have a remote controller for the ac and the tv.
I would've been staying here for another 3 days, but now I'm leaving this hotel by today.
This hotel is highly not recommended for anyone.

Very poor services.

The night we stayed at the Hotel Saffron they had a party raging in a hall next to our bedroom until 2am.

When we inquired about the party they told us the party would end by 9:00pm. I had called at 7:00pm.

Once 9:00pm hit they told us the party would end at 10:00pm. This charade continued until well past midnight. The front desk even stopped answering my calls which led me to go down to the lobby to complain. They they made up an excuse that their phones did not work while another associate answered a call from another room.

This place was absolutely horrible.

The towels/linens/pillows were very dirty. They seemed as if they had not been washed in months. There was no hot water available, and the heat was not working. The room was freezing cold, because we went during December.

All the while the staff ensured there was hot water, heating, and clean linens. Additionally our request for a heater was ignored, so we slept the night in filthy beds, without taking a shower, in freezing cold rooms.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Please be advised fellow travelers. There are very limited hotel options in the city of Kurukshetra. This hotel is rated as the "best" in the area. Please don't make the mistake and suffer like we did. If you can avoid in this hotel, we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: No good rooms. Bad management.

very royally made and that too specially in just a small town, makes it like a rose in a desert. The rooms are spacious, luxuriously décor rooms. the bathroom is spacious and has a bath tub. It has a large dressing room just outside the bathroom. The beds are very comfortable and the room has a good sitting area too. The service is also good and courteous. Little slow but usually that happens in small towns.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms depending on the weather. If its winter choose the ones towards the east and West i...

Saffron is a nice hotel considering Kurukshetra. Very spacious rooms and nice room service. But some pain areas are:
1. Parking is not adequate if you have some function here. We've stayed here as part of my cousin's marriage, so whole family was staying here (we have more than 12-15 rooms).

2. Hotel has a separate lawn and AC hall (banquet) in which functions could be organized. Whenever there is some function there and electricity goes out, they have DG set backup. But after sometime these people either switch-off ACs of the party hall or ACs of hotel rooms. They do not have adequate backup to run AC in all their facilities.

3. Some rooms which has kitchen under them or adjacent to them have smell of LPG in them as if it is leaking.

4. ACs of some rooms are not effective at all (I stayed in room 205 secon floor) as if AC gas is leaked out or AC tonnage is too less for the size of the room.

exclusive and exquisite is what ill call this hotel ! wonderful , big grassy lawns , party area with plenty of rooms . i had been here to attend my cousin;s wedding and the whole experience was just awesome ! the hotel has largely big parking area which accomodates all sorts of passenfer vehicles . the hotel too has a covered lawn are for in house parties and meetings . the food is delicious the staff is very friendly and extremely flexible in accordance to one;s needs , but when it comes to rooms the picture takes a twist ! the rooms are not so exclusive and the sound of the harsh music from the party area pains a lot ! overall a nice big place for organising functions , parties , weddings , conferences etc ..

saffron hotel in kurukshetra is a very good hotel hotel. the most i like is the room service.
the look of the hotel is also good. in food i like the most is butter chicken.
overall hotel is good to stay at nigh.
if you want to stay there with your wife then its a very good hotel for romance.
but the one thing which i dont like is there no swimming pool.

The website for the hotels shows a picture of a neat clean and big hotel. Yes the property is on big land but quality of everything is poor.

Rooms are smelly. funiture is shabby and torn.. Staff is not helpful.
And if there is a party going on at hotel you cant sleep cuz of the noise..

Will never suggest such place for anyone at even free
