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.
