Turned up at the hotel at 7pm, and was told by a rude staff member that my room was given away, because i was late ( even though they state on their website that you can check in till 8pm ). Was told they are full and nothing can be done about it. So I was stranded in Cologne, alone...

Hotel is so clean, confortable and curiosly decorated. Location is perfect in the city centrum. It is no noisy and staff was so kind and polite. Without doubts if We are coming back to Köln we will stay in Sandmanns again.

Nice room with a desert theme and comfortable bed, good up-to-date TV and shower, and well placed shelves and desk. There were biscuits, a choice of teas and even soup!? Great location just around the corner from the absolutely gorgeous cathedral. Nice place from which to explore the city. The owner/receptionist was very friendly and spoke great English.

I booked the Sandmann because it looked nice and has a good location. In my booking order I wrote them that I will arrive in the morning and asked if it would be possible to maybe check in early. No response. A few days prior to my trip I received the booking reminder where I noticed that check in time...

In June we visited a dear friend playing in the Musical 'Bodyguard' (by the way: it's awesome) . So we were looking for a nice place to stay in the city center and I found the Sandmann. We reservated a room with balcony and enjoyed the view on the cathedral. I absolutely recommend to do so, because it gives you...

My flight was delayed. Arrived at 8.45 to the hotel in darkness. Called the number, and after 30 minutes of no answer eventually was " you didn't arrive before 6pm so we gave your room away, goodbye" and hung up. I rang again to explain, same answer! "will you help me find an alternative hotel, it's now 9.15pm and I'm...

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...

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.
