A popular hotel in a lovely quiet and central canalside location.

It's easy to see why the Strand is popular with business and leisure travellers alike. The location is excellent - on a quiet road overlooking one of the harbour canals and right in the city's historic centre.

Location

You get a buzz stepping out of the Strand's lobby and realising just how central you are to the city's amazing historical heritage and its maritime life. The harbour is close by and there's a wealth of attractions, cafes, shops and bars right on the doorstep. It's an easy walk to Stroget, the main drag, and most of the city's museums, galleries and historic buildings.

Bedrooms

The rooms might not win any design awards but they are appealing and comfortable. Above all, guests report that they are quiet - often something of a bonus in the city centre. The rooms facing the canal or the ones higher up at the side of the hotel are the ones to go for as they offer views, or partial views. The lower you go the darker the rooms get in terms of natural light. There are all the basics you'd expect in a decent hotel room including free high-speed internet access.

Public areas

The lobby is pleasant with some seating areas with comfortable leather chairs to sit and relax or have a meeting in. The breakfast room is a bit of a gloomy cavern though. It's not a hotel to hang out in but there are excellent alternatives nearby.

Eating and drinking

There's no restaurtant. The breakfast is adequate but unremarkable. Happily, there are plenty of options a short walk away in the city centre.

Leisure facilities

There are no leisure facilities to speak of here, except in summer when the meeting room is turned into a kid's playroom.

Service

While I wasn't bowled over by the service, I found it polished and efficient.

Who stays there

Business travellers dominate in the week, while couples and families are more common at weekends.

Price advice

You may be able to get deals at weekends when business travellers thin out. There are also some good deals available in the summer holidays.
