The setting of the Hotel was bad. The surroundings was dilapidated. The cleaning chemicals had an unpleasant odour. In general the property is over priced not value for money. The basin in the room did not drain properly. The shower curtain did not stop the water from flooding the floor.

I did not enjoy my stay. The room provided had a bad smell; the urine and the wet carpet, the room was small and stuffy. When there was load shading the hotel did not have a back up generator and had no control of who was coming in the hotel. The lift had stuck several time and to get clothes... More

I have recently got back from a trip in which I spent three nights at the King David hotel. An honest review below may help future travelers make an informed choice: My room was on the first floor. There was a musty smell in the room and the only way to freshen the air was to leave the overhead fan... More

Asked for accommodation and conference booking at Premier Hotel King David for a group and requested them to send me the invoice for payment. Confirmed everything with my clients, submitted the invoice for payment and then on the day they call me to tell me they have released my booking and that they have NO rooms available or conference facilities....

I have recently returned from a trip to East London to research family connections. Having read previous reviews on trip adviser I was rather hesitant about my stay at the Premier King David. I needn't have been because in reality I found the hotel very good. The staff at reception were pleasant, herlpful and efficient. The room, thought not ultra... More

This was one of those occasions when I really wished I had done the research myself. Because I was late, I asked my travel agent to find me accommodation for one night in East London on our travel up the East Coast of SA to Port Edward from Oudtshoorn. Arriving at the hotel was already a shock. The area has... More

Definitely not for somebody on vacation. Noisy location, no view although 5 minutes walk to beachfront. I think they have become complacent to large government conference bookings. Conferenxe venue was fine except the dat projector bulb portrayed purple which made the powrrpoint slide difficult to read. Not good when you want to share vital information to stakeholders!

What a disaster! Some experiences... Room was not ready for us at 15h00, had to wait and wait.. When asked about the safety of my vehicle based on the vagrants hanging around the area I was casually informed that my vehicle is not safe. I would have expected that reception would consider it their duty to warn guests of this...... More

Clean bedding.. unsafe parking. Noisy area. Ladies of the night advertising their wares outside. Man upstairs noisily enjoying their service. Good breakfast. Good service. But overall, the place made me feel uneasy...
