          Comfortable stay”

          Excellent location, near metro station, bus station, restaurants, supermarkets, there's also a travel agency at the reception which we used (at negotiable fair price) to book one of our travels. Room was okay - a bit small but will fit 2 average-sized person perfectly. The building, room and toilet are obviously old and can use some renovation. Housekeeping was okay (it's by request) but some housekeeping personnel do not clean the room well. Receptionists (yes, all of them) are friendly and nice.

          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.

          This is what we expected from this hotel. Fridge is a very good option to keep your liquids cold. The bathroom is a little bit old (ceilings) and tiles grouts come out very often while you walking on it. Very good AC, somewhat silent at night, breakfast could be more continental and real coffee would be appreciated instead of Nescafé. Elevators bell is very ANNOYING. They took our passport after check-in for a night.

          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

          Third or fourth visit. Taxi from airport charged 65 dirham (15 going back to T3). Breakfast Indian-style, light on heart-healthy food. Clients mostly from S Asia, some from Africa. Charges extra AED10 per night per room, not in Agoda fee-list. Adequate for cool night, dangerous shower-baths for elderly (Dubai loves baths, shower cubicles are tiny where/if they exist). Check in/out efficiently handled but don't arrive late during a festival or you preference will have gone already..

          Great place in Dubai”

          location, value, staff

          We arrived real late and got into our room quickly before getting up early to go to the airport again. The hotel is very close to the airport which is nice. The staff is also very helpful. This is definitely a great place to stay on a budget in Dubai.

          Worth for price Don't expect too much”

          Price location staff

          As others reviews small cockroach had been seen. The room is clean enough. But they may live inside the wood. They should do pet control by spraying. If you need the room clean. You should hang the sign "Clean My room" and the room will be cleaned everyday. The staff take my response well to fix thing up. Even the hotel is near Al Rigga Station. But it's not on Al Rigga road and not easy to find for first time in Dubai. Even taxi don't know the location. Al rigga is the long road. So have google MAP and hotel telephone number with you.

          Comfort Room and value for money!”

          Comfort Room, Easy access to public transport and Close to local restaurants

          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.
