We spent 3 nights at the hotel. The whole experience is superb. The entire staff is great and professional, helpful and friendly. We had an amazing room on level 1 whigh are the ones facing the old city and having large verandas. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. The beds are very comfortable, the aircon works well as does the wifi. Amenities are fine and there is unlimited water supplied. They handle covid requirements very well. The breakfast buffet was perfect with a great selection and excellent service as usual. Drinks on the outside patio are a must. The "house" king david red wine was quite drinkable and reasonably priced. The pool area and gardens are fantastic with plenty of space and shade and a very well maintained pool. Very easy to get around the town from the hotel and you can walk 20 min to pretty much anywhere you want. It's not cheap of course but you will feel you got good value from a stay there. We will definitely do it again Read less

Over estimated but great potential. Needs new management!!!Visited during Covid times and expected the staff and fellow patrons to wear masks but the case. Although most of the staff had masks covering part of the face mouth and chin the nose was exposed and patron were without masks sitting in the lobby. There was an advertised four o clock tea but no one on the staff knew and only got served after five pm There was sufficient amount of staff but the service was slow. Received food but when asked for condiments they never comes . When asked against empty salt and pepper shakers were brought. Only after a third try did the salt shakers arrive but. Y now the food was cold. The pool was lovely but the lifeguard was either absent or when present talking to people and not watching the people in the pool. The rooms were nice but the bath tub needs to be updated and replaced with a proper full shower. I almost slipped in the bath tub . The breakfast staff was more professional with excellent service. All and all was service of a three star hotel. Potential is there just poor management Read less

For 90 years, the King David Hotel has been a beacon of elegance in Jerusalem. My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times in recent years, and were again overwhelmed by the amazing service particularly from the concierge team and mean dining room staff. You do not have to be only Royalty to be remembered at the KD. During our entire stay, the little things that we appreciated in service were remembered. Every experience has a story, and the memories you make at the KD will last a lifetime. Also, they have a new amazing General Manager who is particularly warm and friendly and who takes a great personal interest in all the guests experiences. Highly recommend this hotel for those who appreciate consistent and highly coveted service. Read less

For 90 years, this has been the residence of presidents, prime ministers and cultural icons. Yet, whatever your station in life, The King David treats you like royalty. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The views of the Old City and the hotel’s pool and gardens are spectacular. The food is wonderful and it is served in a beautiful dining room by waiters who have worked at the hotel for decades. They just can’t do enough to make new and returning guests feel at home. There are many other fine properties in the city of Jerusalem but none capture its history, grandeur and elegance like this timeless hotel. A new general manager came onboard shortly before the outbreak of Covid. He and his team stand ready to continue providing the highest level of service and luxury in the city of David. Read less
