The other reviewers here have detailed well the magnificent facilities, excellent location, wonderful food, etc; so let me take a moment and say how fantastic the staff at this hotel is. Fadi, Issa, Inbal, Ibraheem, and all of the wait staff are so attentive, thoughtful, and hard-working. An amazing city, perfect location, and a great base to see it all.... More

I have a few highlights at citadel. Going on my terrace drinking coffee and looking at old jerusalem is first. Swimming in the heated outdoors pool is second. Third is eating there Friday night and shabbath meals on the terrace overlooking old city and pool. Great stay. Thx.

Perfect rooms, excellent breakfast, amazing location - walking distance to malls, old city, and markets. It's a big hotel, not indicated for those looking for boutique hotels. Good for families and kids.

We have stayed at the David Citadel a number of times and it never fails to impress. The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfasts over-the-top, the gym first rate and the staff very accommodating. Our room had a gorgeous view overlooking the old city and as very well appointed.

We have been coming to the citadel for years and are always impressed with the hospitality and superb service. Anyone visiting the hotel should personally ask for Daniel Barakan and Manuel Arbid, who both make me feel at home and taken care of when ever staying in the hotel and visiting Jerusalem. I'm looking forward to my next visit to... More

Room very pricey for what it is we were paying for a view of the old city walls and that's what makes it so expensive, our view was side on, in room 1049 no... More
