“Basic, mostly for tour groups”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

Strand seems to be a place targeted towards tending organized tour groups like the one we were in.
The hotel is reasonably clean, the finish looks sometimes more like someone's private flat than a hotel - especially the bathroom, which were slightly too rough for my taste. There's a problem with noise - you can hear what the people in your neighboring rooms are talking about as the noise comes both through the doors, the walls and probably ventilation, too. It wasn't hard since we were neighbored by rather quiet company, but I don't want to think what would it be were it some louder lads or gals.
Food is good, Arabian-style. You can get a nice city map from the reception which lets you see the city on your own - especially useful in the Old City until you get to know its narrow and convoluted alleyways (will take several visits to learn properly).
There's a useful food (and water!) shop down the street, some 500 meters to the north, past the YWCA and used cars lot.

This is a basic hotel about 15 minutes' walk north from the Old City. It's in the American Quarter, which means mixed Arabic and European-like neighborhood, mostly quiet.

The hotel is mostly catering to the organized groups of Christian pilgrims, though not only them. There is a large dining room in the basement and the food (of standard mid-east variety) is of rather good quality. The rooms are no frills and could be better - especially the bathroom of our room could use some additional cleaning and patching up. We could smell someone smoking cigarettes from our room, even with the bathroom door closed.

The air conditioning worked properly; the windows are a bit thin though, so I'm not sure how it works in the winter - it' definitely better than most of the older private buildings in Israel, but definitely not in the range of the larger hotel chains.

All in all, it's a good place to stay if you want to do some (or a lot of) sightseeing and don't need luxury. If not staying in some higher-class hotel, I'd consider visiting Strand again.
