The David Citadel Hotel

Jerusalem, Israel

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.

I stayed here with my mom a while back. It is probably one of the best hotels I’ve ever been to. What makes your stay so memorable is the staff, they truly care. They go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant stay.

The David Citadel is ideallly situated and oh so lovely. We upgraded to perhaps their best suite and could not have been happier. Amazing, beautiful food displays. I want to especially compliment 2 of their wait staff, Samir and Said. They became familiar with my picky habits and accomodated me fully at each meal. It is with a genuine smile on my face as I write about these 2 men, as they would greet me each morning and have my special coffee cream ready to go! Delightful! Read less

This was an awesome hotel! Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were there with a large group and they accommodated us well. Food was delicious and plentiful. Location was ideal - you could literally walk across the street, stroll through a high end mall, and come out at the Jaffa Gate to the old city.

This was my 7th trip to Jerusalem and David Citadel is the best of the best (This was our first time at this hotel but we had scoped out the David Citadel on our prior trip) . Someone walked us to our room when we checked in and provided explanations along the way. The hotel is is walking distance from The Old City, Mamilla and Ben Yehuda St. The accommodations were amazing. I loved the closet and shelving and the way the bathroom is situated! It offers privacy. I even liked the way the shower had floor to ceiling glass so it did not fog up the bathroom when showering! The breakfast buffet is a real treat and our waiter Samir definitely knows how to treat guests. This hotel really knows service and they have the location and accommodation to boot. David Citadel made our trip to Jerusalem. Read less
