You could also take a stroll through Stadswandelpark, the city’s walking park and later, head to Stratumseind, the city’s most popular nightlife strip which is right on the doorstep of the hotel.
TripAdvisors users have posted positive reviews about the Sandton Hotel Eindhoven City Centre. Here are some recent ones, which we have edited for length:
‘Stayed for a few nights recently. Excellent location for our purposes of a quiet few beers as it’s right at one end of the main street of bars! The rooms were comfortable with an apparent endless supply of towels that seemed to be hidden everywhere!! The staff were friendly yet professional.’
‘Great stay! Everything we required and more, no complaints whatsoever! Location to main strip was ideal, plenty of bars close by. Lovely bar area which sold a good selection of beer and whisky. Would definitely recommend to anyone.’
‘Easy to get on with staff. Even though I was stressed after the flight and hotel transfer I was easily taken to my room. The hotel is well located on a parade of restaurants, coffee shops and clothes stores. Not too far from the city centre or any excursions or activities in Eindhoven. Thoroughly recommend. The staff were friendly with my daily requests…’
