      Great value for money”

      Location, reasonable price, with tour company based at the lobby.

      It was great to stay here at Saffron Hotel in the short time I was in Dubai on my trip back to Manila after having attended a conference in Turkey. It had a nice location, just one block away from the main street that had various shops and restaurants. It was also nice that a tour company was based in its lobby and so it was easy to select and arrange its various varied tours. It had good working facilities. However, one downside was that it did not offer free wi-fi; you had to pay for wi-fi access.

      Price and location

      When I fly through Dubai I have an 11 hour layover and rather than booking one of the overpriced lounges at the airport I book a cheap hotel room. This time I booked the Saffron hotel. I was a little worried because of the low price but it turned out to be a nice place. It is also a short walk to the Deira City Center mall and the area around the hotel has many restaurants. The room is pretty small so I wouldn't stay here for multiple days.

      location, friendly staff, clean room

      The hotel was very good in terms of being centrally located in Deira. It is a 2 minute walk to the Al Rigga Metro station, and there are plenty of restaurants, and facilities such as supermarkets, and laundry services in close proximity. The staff at the hotel were extremely welcoming, and were very professional, including the reception staff to the porter. The room was basic, but was clean and comfortable. My only suggestion is for the hotel to improve their breakfast menu, and to offer B&B with the room rate, as it is fairly expensive for only a room. Further, the breakfast was over priced (compared to what was offered). But all in all, I had a good stay at the hotel, and would recommended the hotel without a doubt.

      Great location, clean, friendly staff and service.”

      Cleanliness, very close to metro station and to Airport. Good number of restaurants around.

      I feel I made best choice of selecting Saffron hotel. It is clean and silent location. Mainly there is no nightclub. They kind enough to give complimentary breakfast also everyday. After seeing all these I have extended my stay by two more nights. Hotel is very close to Rigga metro and is very convenient to travel around. This hotel has arranged for Desert Safari. It was a thrilling experience. Overall i enjoyed my stay in this hotel. I would like recommend this hotel to my friends, most economical and worth the value. Thanks to Agoda.

      It's a 2star hotel but like 3star services. It's a new hotel (I think), the room was comfort and just 5 minutes walk to Al-Rigga Metro Station. From Dubai Airport, just use the Metro and stop at the station mentioned. Also there's a lot of local restaurant nearby. I will definitely come again to this hotel if I'm going to Dubai.

      Surprisingly good. I would come back...”

      stayed in this hotel for 5 days. Good location near Al Rigga Metro, price was great with breakfast. The breakfast could be better though, very few choices and not ethnically diverse. Staffs were nice, specially the lady at the reception. Internet was really good but you have to pay for it separately per device. Overall, highly recommended...

Bathroom a bit old but clean and fully working

      Short Overnight Stay”

      Location to airport, clean rooms, friendly staff

      I chose this hotel for an overnight stay between a long connection between flights. I wanted somewhere cost effective, and close to the airport. I selected the Saffron Hotel knowing it was two star as that met my requirements. The hotel is very old, but well maintained. Room was spotlessly clean with everything that you needed. very close to lots of restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. This property is a good option if on a budget, short stay or just wont be in your room much

      Good location close to Al Rigga Metro station

      Staff was please, room staff could have been friendlier, however hotel was good for the price. Close to Metro station and within walking distric of Dubai Creek and most of the tourist areas like Gold Souk, etc only about 30 min walk

      good stay for a 2 star hotel”

      location, price, bed & bathroom, hot water

      good price, 2 minutes walk to metro station, many restaurants super markets and shopps are around, clean room, hot water, AC very good, nice big bed, staff helpfull. good internet but you have to pay 20 dirhams for 24 hours or 5 dirhams for one hour. 2 complimentary water bottles for the 1st day only. check in was fast. the bad things for me were the walls of the room are not sound proof so u can hear any sound or noise outside your room which sometimes woke me up in the middle of the night, the breakfast is very poor they only serve omlet, noodles, somekind of indian beans and an apple, toast and butter, coffee or tea. there is 10 dirhams for each night you have to pay, tourist tax, this normal in all UAE
