Satyed here just for one night but here are my opinions. The hotel cant be better located, just a few steps from cathedral and Main train station. As I arrived late, the check in was closed, but as I informed hotel before, they sent me a code for little safety box, where my keys and few instructions were. I had... More

Sandmanns is located close to Cologne main station. It is not the most scenic spot but it is very central which makes it excellent for sight seeing & going to bars/ restaurants. The rooms are small, but spotless. Someone mentioned that you notice the limited budget of the hotel and this is true; however this is made up for with... More

Sandmanns is really a couple of meters away from Cologne central station and the city center. The design is quite different from what you might be used to. Every detail was thought about, but you feel the limited budget. The price and the breakfast are fair. However the traffic in the street is too loud to be able to sleep... More

The owners/managers of this original little hotel are extremely helpful and friendly. It's conveniently located near to the main train station and the Cathedral. Room and bathroom were rather small, but clean and comfortable, everything designed in the hotel's "desert" theme. Good breakfast - not a huge buffet, but a quality selection, and you can have a freshly boiled egg,... More

This hotel is very close to the Dom and main train station - a great location! The themed hotel is very inviting and the staff were so friendly. The windows do open to the street but we didn't have any problem with the noise. Simple but perfect for a quick trip to the city

Cute, very clean, concept of desserts, funny very very central 5 mins from Cathedrale, soft and warm athmosphere with beauty colours, will go there again when am in cologne. Strongly recommend that small hotel with 8 rooms but prepared with love & heart. Not for biz bcs no room service. For touristic reason just get and sleep its perfect.

Sandmann’s is a small hotel-lounge type of place. My room was 1-2, which is on the first floor and to the street. The entire hotel only has 11 rooms, and all are non-smoking. Despite the busy street, the windows did a good job of keeping most noise out. Mind you, there is no A/C and I doubt I would be... More

The location was excellent. Very close to cathedral, train station, and many sites. The room itself was fine. Nothing special. I thought it was a little overpriced, and I was missing my free bottle of water, but overall satisfied. I wish there was an elevator and that my price included breakfast. If so, it would have been worth what I... More
