We have just visited The King David Hotel and loved it. We had a refurbished room on the sixth floor which was beautiful. Enjoyed the best buffet breakfast with a huge variety of delicious foods. We loved the pool area and also the terrace where we enjoyed dinner one night and a good spot for a sociable drink after dinner....

We didn't stay here but I imagine it is a wonderful location. Just a walk through the lobby was fine. Cool signatures on the hall flooring, lovely inviting furniture beaconing for you to stay and fabulous floral arrangements to into each the eyes. Lovely stroll.

It's been several years since we were at the King David, but staying for a week during Passover, 2017, we were so pleased that the hotel has maintained its charm while the updated rooms and public facilities were outstanding. Our 6th floor rooms were spacious, the bathrooms roomy, the restaurants and service staff outstanding - as they have always been....

We decided to stay at the King David because it had such a great reputation, with an amazing history, and it is one of the Leading Hotels of the World. Celebrities and world leaders have stayed here, so how could we resist? Check in was fine. The check in staff was friendly, and we were walked up to our newly...

Rooms were large and comfortable. Bed a little hard. So easy to get to Old City. Can walk. Near Mamilla shopping center and our favorite restaurant called Eucalyptus. If you have difficulty with stairs ask for rooms with the elevator even though the newer rooms are up the stairs. Breakfasts were the best I ever had in Israel. Although the...

It's the best hotel in Jerusalem. Only 10 minutes Walk from Jaffa Gate which is the main gate to go to Old Jerusalem. The room is big enough to accommodate 3 guests comfortably. Nice buffet breakfast with a lot of food options. Nice swimming pool and has tennis court. Nice welcome amenities waiting in our room when we checked in....

This is the ultimate destination in Jerusalem. It is faultless. The service is impeccable as is the hotel. The view of the old city is stunning. The garden and the swimming pool is unique for Jerusalem. The terrace area where we had lunch is idyllic and the food was excellent.Absolutely delightful!

I went to Israel on a two week pilgrimage with a group of 24. One of our last places we stayed at was the BEA-U-TI-FUL King David Hotel located only a 15 minute walk to the Old City. I can see why this Hotel is legendary and considered to be the most famous Hotel in all of Jerusalem! We didn't...

We stayed at the King David last week, reserving four rooms for our family over four nights. Fantastic location, fantastic staff, fantastic hotel in every way. The service by the staff is first rate with each guest made to feel very special. The rooms are modern but with the charm of an older hotel. From those at the front desk...
