I am leaving in Israel and when I am travelling abroad, I always make reservation in very good hotels. King David hotel in Jerusalem is extraordinary hotel. The best in Israel for people that care about service and quality and cleanness and location. Everything is the best possible. No other hotel like that in Israel.

My wife and I had a fantastic visit over the Chag. Our 5th floor room overlooking the old city was large up to date and beautiful. The hotel service was top notch and all the staff was helpful and accommodating. We look forward to our next visit!!

Overall---a wonderful stay. The room (duplex suite) was outrageously amazing (though a drop cleaner here and there would have been nice). The extras they provided for our celebration of my birthday were so very generous. The food in the Grill Room was absolutely excellent. The service in all parts of the hotel was fine and friendly. But, there was just one thing missing...the Concierge Manager, Jeremy Weiss, wasn't there on the day of our arrival. As American Express Platinum return guests, the service we have always enjoyed from Jeremy Weiss is one of the highlights of our stays at the King David. His personal touch and attentiveness are simply extraordinary, and we missed it. Read less
