During our visit to Jerusalem this August we with my husband stayed in the King David. The King David is marvelous, charming and very comfortable hotel. It is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! It is only 10 minutes walking from the old city (Jaffa Gate), so we visited Western Wall, Bazar and then Mount of... More

As a single woman traveling alone to Israel in the summer of 2014 during the war with Gaza, I relished the experience of staying at The King David. Once inside the hotel, the stress of the outside world dissipated. Everyone on staff was particularly kind and helpful. My room on the 5th floor overlooked the splendor of the Old City.... More

The King David is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, not to mention the best hotel in Jerusalem. The hotel is an experience which starts from pulling up to the hotel upon your arrival. Immediately, the hotel staff welcomes you to the King David and take your bags. You are then brought to Guest Reception, where... More

It's hard to imaging a hotel with a better location, a more elegant decor, or better service. I arrived hours before Shabbat without my luggage. Ron (guest relations) went out of his way to find me a white dress shirt for the evening. The concierge desk continued the search for my luggage until its arrival two days later. The Sunday... More

I can't remember the number of visits we've mad to the King David and each time the level of service keeps getting better. From the reception of Shai at the front desk, to Josef and Rasheed in the dining room, to Nadav the pool manager to Asalee at the pool restaurant, the staff couldn't have been better.

Welcome Home! It never changes! The warm welcome is always there, whenever we arrive at the King David Hotel. This time it was even more special. We arrived with our family of eight people. We were very brave. The Gaza conflict was ongoing. Hotel guests were even more subdued. But folks like Ron, and the rest of the reception staff... More

Great location and nice public areas including the pool. We had a family suit that was okay but a bit dated. We had both dinner and breakfast in the hotel and both of them were very good. I would definitely stay here again.

The historic hotel is wonderful, the feature is the buffet breakfast - soooo much food to choose from! The only problem is there is no coffee and tea making facilities in the room, which is difficult. Lovely location overlooking the Old City Wall. Best hotel pool in the Middle East, quiet garden and very elegant surroundings.
