My adult son and I enjoyed a delicious lunch within elegant surroundings at this historic, 1929 landmark hotel. Offering views of the walls surrounding Old Jerusalem beyond, it was a delightful experience to dine within this prominent establishment, which has played host to dignitaries while visiting The Holy Land throughout the years. A "runway" down the center hallway floor of the lobby reflects signatures of some of the celebrities and notables who have graced the establishment. Should you stay at the King David Hotel, a 15 minute walk down through a park will lead you up to the Jaffa Gate into the Old City. Great Location! Read less

Room was very spacious, with panoramic view of the old city and comfy bed. We visited the hotel during COVID19 pandemic, and the hotel is well organised, sanitised and prepared accordingly. The team itself was super helpful, and the hotel is truly deserved the 5 star rank. Read less

Really makes no difference who you are, they will make you feel very special, and the pool area and ground are stanning. A… Read more
