David Citadel Hotel
Ranked #14 of 100 Hotels in Jerusalem
Reviewed December 3, 2013

The hotel, David Citadel, is just one block away from The Old City walls of Jersalem, where prophets, holy men and knaves walked (and sometimes plotted) over 2000 years ago. One can't help feeling the magic of the city as one gazes out from the room window or steps out on the veranda and sees the old city walls beautifully lit. Last week they had a Renaissance festival with knights, magicians and witches strolling the narrow alleys. We actually watched a jousting with knights as well as clever hecklers. Now about the hotel. Very contemporary (all marble) and the help is warm and helpful. I havene't been there in 3 years and yet when I arrived the staff recognized me and addressed me by name, as though I was family. Certain hotel staff are worth specific mention and I advise anyone who stays there to stop by and introduce yourself to them. First and foremost are my favorites Munir Salman, Front office manager and Manuel Arbid, assistant FOM. Both will make sure your stay is pleasant and uneventful. The housekeeping staff is a mite too aggressive in always being in your face, but it beats the alternative.
The Breakfast staff (i.e. my friend Sayid) are excellent.

Rooms are large, clean and tastefully done, especially the Alcove Deluxe with the wonderful views. I consider this the best choice in Jerusalem.

Room Tip: I like the Alcove Deluxe best

We stayed at the David Citadel for 2 nights on a recent tour of Israel organised by Pomegranate Travel. It is a very comfortable hotel with well designed rooms and excellent facilities. It is perfectly positioned for visiting the holy sights and the new and old parts of this amazing and contrasting city. Our guide (also provided by Pomegranate Travel) was extremely knowledgeable and really brought to life the rich history and culture of Jerusalem. After a long day touring, the hotel's swimming pool was particularly welcome!

We are very frequent guests at the David Citadel Hotel.
The David Citadel hotel is very elegant, quite , clean and well located.
All of the staff are very kind.
We would like to mention three of the members of the staff- Monir the manager of front desk and his assistant Manuel , are very proffesional , efficient and have a great ability for personal relationships. They are very attentive and patient to the guests and do their best to permit excellent accomodation.
Every time we refer to Manuel, we feel that very reliable responsible person meets us and takes care personally.
Anan the manager of housekeeping department is very proffesional , sensitive and a great ability to understant special needs of the guests. He is very responsible and kind and shows personal involvement. He does his best to help the guests. The special attitude of these stuff members make the perfect feeling of the guess.
