The David Citadel Hotel

Jerusalem, Israel

Virgin rating

The hotel

An oasis in one of the most celebrated cities, the David Citadel puts you right in the core of Jerusalem. Sophisticated dining, a serene spa, and a heated pool overlooking yellow-stone rooftops — relaxation may just be high on your agenda here. It’s not all about down-time though. Step out of the grand entrance and be taken back to Old City living. Wander through streets of fascinating culture, and end up at some of the oldest historic sites known to man.

My stay was excellent! The view of the Old City was unbeatable and the hospitality was excellent. In particular, an employee named Said was friendly and amicable. He was enthusiastic and warm every day, and a pleasure to converse with. I recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Jerusalem.
