The David Citadel Hotel

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.

Smoked fish, vegetable salads, fresh fruit, fresh baked bread, and more cheeses than I knew existed. To be honest, a waiter in the mornings, Said, made me feel at home everyday. He always knew what I ordered, and often had it at my table prior to me sitting down. I’ve had an amazing stay here. Read less

I chose this hotel as a weekend getaway after a hectic 8 days of helping my sister with her newborn baby. The overall feeling of the hotel was elegant but warm and inviting. the pool was so refreshing and overlooked the Old City which was a bonus. The staff were eager to help and always smiling. I arrived at breakfast very late one day and was still warmly greeted and taken care of by three lovely wait staff in particular : Samir, Ata and Samer. It wasn't my first time at the hotel and there's a reason I choose it again and again. Read less

We stayed here and had a wonderful time. Great location and amenities. The kids club is excellent. Said the waiter at the restaurant in the breakfast always attended to us with such great enthusiasm. He has been a great family friend for years already with so many visits to the hotel. Always attentive and very helpful.
