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 had a very enjoyable stay at the David Citadel Hotel. The breakfast buffet was wonderful - Evgeni made the best omelettes - and remembered what I wanted each day, He would see me and start my omelette and it would be ready by the time I got my water and juice. Servers Samer and ATA were so attentive and made sure I had whatever I wanted/needed. I really enjoyed the brief conversations I had with ATA, when he was not busy. The hotel had a pool and gym. I swam every day in the morning and it was a wonderful way to start the day. The gym has a good variety of equipment but the aerobics room could only be used when you had a trainer with you (that is why 4 stars instead of 5). Read less

We have been coming to this hotel for many years and never been disappointed. The breakfast is especially wonderful with a great spread of fresh baked good and delicious salads. The server, Sa’id, is so professional and always friendly remembering our orders and coffee specifics. He always remembers our kids and their orders and always makes us welcome and at home away from home. The floor manager, Abed, just as friendly and professional and always available to help and make the experience perfect. Always a pleasure to return to this place. Highly recommended Read less

We booked 3 balcony rooms overlooking the old city walls and the hotel pool. The rooms were excellent, good bathrooms and comfy beds. My only comment is that there needs to be more attention in cleaning the balcony and it’s furniture.

We booked 3 balcony rooms overlooking the old city walls and the hotel pool. The rooms were excellent, good bathrooms and comfy beds. My only comment is that there needs to be more attention in cleaning the balcony and it’s furniture. The staff were all fabulous and they truly went above and beyond in ensuring any requests we had were fulfilled. Food in both the restaurant and lobby bar was fabulous and breakfast is spectacular! We were made to feel welcome and valued as guests and I highly recommend this hotel to everyone!! Read less
