Modern glass block, clinical but effective. 15 minutes dreary walk to the charming (but small) town centre (Bratislava is otherwise a graffiti ridden dump). Good breakfast buffet; restaurant closes very early for evening meals.

We stayed there for 1 night when visited Bratislava last week. It is a very nice hotel, recently opened (a year ago, i think) with modern decoration. The rooms are spacious, very clean with comfortable beds and wifi access. The breakfast is delicious, with a good range (international breakfast). It is located 10-15 mins walk from Bratislava city center and just 10 min walk from the main train station. I would be definitely returning to Hotel Saffron, if I visit Bratislava again.

Lovely modern hotel , really clean about 10 minutes from old town.
The only gripes we had was no shower only a bath with hand shower attachment to wash your hair.
Also breakfast was a bit basic ,if you didn't go down early enough there wasn't much left.
One day my husband asked for some more fresh bacon and the girl brought him some raw bacon.
She misunderstood him , we had a laugh about it though.

Stayed in the Saffron for 4 nights recently. The hotel was lovely and clean, breakfast was plentiful and the staff were friendly. It is in a good location - a 5 minute walk from the old town, and was quiet.

The staff is wonderful at this new modern hotel located 1 km away from Old Town Bratislava. Everything went beyond expectations. Services were excellent, staff was very friendly and food was awesome. We really enjoyed a lot. Definitely recommend this hotel to fellow travelers.

Arrived to find no shower in room even though pictures ask show showers. Moved to a new room and unpacked to find that the toilet had dry dark urine stains all over the seat and toilet. moved rooms again! Today went to breakfast for the first time, breakfast clearly had been out for two hours with very little available. Coffee was hours old, no pastries, asked for more eggs and they can back clear and uncooked. Very little fruit and terrible atmosphere wish we could move hotels! Keep you all updated.
Breakfast has not improved despite being promised it would and service is not much better. Don't know why anyone rates this hotel highly, it is clean despite the urine strained seat. But so is the mercure, or the Hilton, or they motel one. There are clearly better places to stay. We've just travelled from a motel one it was clean and basic breakfast cost 7:50 but it was good, decent coffee and a pain Au chocholat is better than the breakfast here any day.
Today I went out into town early to have breakfasts and coffee! and returned at 2 for a nap before going out for my birthday meal this evening, at 2:30 the cleaning lady knocked and entered my room while I was a sleep, which I thought was fine. But then ten minutes later I get a phone call from reception asking what time they can come in (they have no door cards) I said don't worry about it today I am trying to sleep and they just kept asking what time will I be leaving! Eventually after an awkward conversation they took my first answer of don't worry about cleaning the room today. I still wish we were staying in another hotel i'm going to try and see whether they will give me some money back so that I can continue to buy breakfast elsewhere.

Hotel Saffron is a brand new modern style hotel located just 1 km away from the historical center of Bratislava. My friend organized a two-day stay in this hotel to celebrate his 25th birthday. Everything went beyond expectations. Services were excellent, staff was very friendly and food was awesome. We really enjoyed a lot. Definitely recommend.
