The hotel where I normally stay in Cologne was full and Sandmanns came up as an interesting option. Well, it's now my favorite hotel. Superb location, the staff is outstanding, great breakfast and the room was wonderful. The place has been recently updated and it's clean, modern and warm. The rate was competitive and the breakfast was excellent. It's close... More

Friendly staff, ideal position near the Cathedral [Dom] and station, and with interesting clean rooms. No lift and four floors makes the hotel unsuitable for people with access difficulties and the room can be noisy at night. But perfect for a short stay and would thoroughly recommend.

Small we'll run hotel right in the centre of cologne. 100m from station. Helpful management very clean basic hotel. Ideal for a 1 or 2 night stay. Breakfast can be had but no lunch or dinner. Restaurants in walking distance. Great for a week end visit Cologne.

We booked this hotel totally last minute because we needed a place to stay for one night and everywhere else was booked or too expensive. For me this place was a great surprise! It is close to the train station, rooms are clean and the design has a personal touch that you can only have in small hotels. Something that... More

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.
