If you want luxury then there is no question - you stay at the King David in Jerusalem. I have just re-read my last review of the hotel in 2010 and everything I said has remained the same. The hotel is even better now that so many of the rooms have been refurbished. I won't describe them as there are so many different sizes and lay outs but the ones facing the Old City are all great especially because of the amazing views.
The other thing that hasn't changed is the food. Last time I stayed I spoke to the Food and Beverage manager who seemed shocked that I wasn't happy with the food. I told him that a hotel that regularly hosts heads of state and celebrities needs to be serving michelin quality food not chicken soup with stodgy kneidlach. I don't want them to get rid of the traditional menus but to offer the same food but a better quality version. I don't think its too much to ask.
Yes I will continue to stay here when I return as I love it, but I will not eat my dinner in the hotel dining room.
The dairy restaurant is quite nice though.
