Reviewed October 25, 2012

Chose The Saffron hotel for a short break as it was in a good position and was reasonably priced. We were not disappointed, this is a new hotel that is very clean and has excellent facilities with friendly and helpful staff. The location is about 10 minutes walk from the old town and 15 minutes from the main railway station and a 20min drive from the airport (approx 20 euro). The breakfast was fine and in a comfortable environment. The bar area is in the reception and is a good place to meet up and relax. Through out the hotel they have free wifi that works well. The hotel itself is very plain and lacks colour and creativity, however it is spotless in cleanliness. Bit disappointed that the spa was not ready yet but we were assured that this will be available soon. Hopefully this will not make them raise their rates to pay for it!. Finally well done to the receptionist who really helped us out in a crisis on the Sunday night.

Room Tip: Bratislava and Vienna are the closest capitals in the world. Add an extra day and go for a trip to V...

The hotel is only 4 months old!!! So it is brand new and cares about its reputation.
It is modern and clean. The location is great. It takes you only 10 minutes to walk to the city center. The rooms are spacious. The receptionist are nice and helpful.
I don't know why but they don't have any shower curtains in the bath/shower. Expect the floor to be wet after you step out of the bath. I liked the breakfast very much. It was a bit simple but tasty, especially apple strudel :) I strongly recommend to stay there. We stayed there for 1 night and we were satisfied!

Four of my friends and I stayed at this hotel from 19th Oct to 22nd Oct. the hotel is modern,very clean and 'minimalist' style. For some reason they dont have shower curtins in the bath/shower which means one has to be careful taking a shower. The hotel is located about 10 minutes from 'old town' Bratislavia. We did have problems with the electronic door/lift 'swipe' card and this required a number of trips to reception to get a new one. The staff at reception ranged from very good to indifferent !!!! the breakfast was good and the overall price for the week end excellent

Finding this hotel can be a bit tricky especially if its late and you are tired but once you get there you will be pleasantly surprised that you got your money's worth and then some! To find the hotel from the MAIN TRAIN station (the main bus station is in another location so dont get the two mixed up): With the main station behind you walk directly ahead to the end of the street, when you look up on the buildings directly across from you, you will see a sign with KOOPERTIVA Insurance, cross the street and walk down this road, you will walk for maybe 8-10 mins, passing a hospital on your left, at the end of this stretch look to your left and you will see a sign saying Hotel Saffron. Walk in the direction of the sign, you may feel like you are in the wrong place because you are walking to the back of the building and it doesnt look like an entrance to such a nice hotel. The reception area is nice and the staff were helpful and could communicate to us in english. The rooms are nice and spacious. Breakfast was good. Great value for our money!

Booked this hotel as it looked nice, excellent price and convenient location I was not disappointed in anyway, it is spotless clean, rooms are big, beds comfy, breakfast very nice. It is only a short distance from the old/new town and there is a beautiful church opposite. The tram going into he centre is 2 mins walk away if you don't want to walk all the way. Definitely recommend

I am staying here for a total of 3 nights. Having walked around there is now where local to eat apart from a chinese resturant and a subway. The coffee shop across the road is very unfriendly and and closes early.

I wanted to order food for room service and on the hotel handbook it says that room service runs to 9.30pm. I was told by the receptionist that there was no one available to take my order, this was at 7.45pm and that there would be no room service today.

My wifi wasnt working for 3 hours from the time i checked in and when i told the hotel staff they said they would sort it out but 2 hours later i hadnt heard from them.

I would stay somewhere else if i could. I have already changed my booking to the hilton from tomorrow.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the other side to the main road are more scenic.

Well this is a very nice hotel and in the very heart of Bratislava. Though it might be a little challanging to find it as it is in the yard and some of the taxi drivers don't know where it is.

The hotel was just recently opened so many things over there are not ready but they try.


Good luck to them.
