This is a really historic and wonderful hotel in a great location. We don't understand the comments about rooms as our was great. Our only two issues were that they only served cold food outside patio which has amazing views. And they have not yet honored our rate that David reservation desk gave us. I called the chains reservation department... More

The King David is one of the world’s iconic hotels. Kings, Presidents, Celebrities have all stayed there. The minute you enter the hotel you feel that you have stepped back in time, you can actually sense that it has had a starring role in history. Every painting, piece of furniture can tell a story. Yet with all this, it still... More

My husband and i stayed with our 4 month old baby for 4 nights in September. Overall we are glad that we can say we stayed in such an iconic hotel, we will however not return unless they have a major staff overhaul. It is by no means 5 star service. With so many new hotels right next door there... More

Had a great trip- was a very quiet time there. Everyone was so nice, polite, and helpful, especially Seamus! He was so helpful to all of our needs, gave great driving directions, and always greeted us with a cheerful smile

We spent a long weekend at this hote, and enjoyed ourselves except some minor incidents. One of them that the sparkling water that we choose to have in our room had never been replenished during our stay. The second was in the dining room during breakfast: our table was ignored by the waiters by negligence and at the end when... More

We stayed in the Mamilla & the Walddorf this week, but the best was the old, historic grandeur of the King David. The elevators may be older, the decor from a bygone era: but the SERVICE was not anything but from the old world of gracious, calm, hospitality that borders on the treatment of royalty. In all, we decided to... More

What a hotel! Immediately entering the lobby the experienced traveller knows... this hotel is special, very special indeed. Not only it reflects - all by itself - the history of the middle east of the last 80 years. There are not many hotels in the world that can claim something similar. The Meurice in Paris, the Ritz or the Savoy...... More

This is probably Israel's most historical hotel. Every head of state who has stayed here have their names imprinted on the marble entrance floor. Our reservation got mixed up so we got the presidential suite. This was a presidential suite that many presidents have stayed in. Unfortunately we stayed over a Friday night so we could not thoroughly enjoy the... More

We arrived half way through our whirlwind tour of Israel to find an oasis of excellence. We paid for an upgraded Old City view room and were upgraded to a beautiful suite. The room was as luxurious as they come. Heavenly bed, oversize bathroom complete with soaking tub and heated towel bar, large comfortable seating area. The staff were professional... More

This was my third stay at the King David. The first 2 were not hits... I found the service poor, the clientele somewhat formal and the unfurnished room simply awful. I probably wouldn't have stayed a 3rd time but the choice was in someone else's hands. What had changed: - I found the service much warmer. Still not perfect (noone... More
