I stayed for one night at the Sandman whilst in Newcastle on business in October 2011. The location is handy - It's a five minute taxi ride from the central train station (15 minute walk) and is right opposite St. James Park Metro stop.
Pros: Check-in was really easy and the staff were friendly. The room was small but perfectly formed. Everything was clean, the bed was really comfy and the in-room microwave was a nice touch. The shower was also great. There is also free wi-fi in the rooms.
Cons: I had a room on the front of the building which overlooks a main road so it was a little noisy. The food in the 'Sharkbar' was nice enough but it's not the place for a relaxing, quiet meal (very noisy, dark and definitely aimed at blokes)... Breakfast was also served in the bar which wasn't ideal. The décor in the lobby is also slightly questionable (particularly the horse with a lampshade on it's head!)
Overall I would recommend staying at the Sandman but maybe ask for a room at the back of the building where it's a little quieter.
