Beautiful historical hotel...

Posted Sep 8, 2016
Great location to Old Jerusalem. Handy Yellow gas station and convenient store next door for snacks. Most of the staff was excellent. We loved two of the bell boys that were always so friendly and helpful. One was Soloman (really tall young man), and the other one was Gill. Our favorite taxie driver was Golani. He made our trip!!! He drove us over to the Jaffa Gate, but first took us up to the Mount of Olives for a panoramic pic of the old city. He even cut an olive branch from one of the trees for us and gathered a limestone rock for us to take home and put in our garden. Because of his kind gestures we ended up using him all week. He took us on a tour to Nazareth, Sea of Galilee, Jordan River, and other northern cities, also to Jericho and Bethlehem. By the end of our trip he and the two bell boys were like family to us. We enjoyed the hotel breakfast every morning and dinner out on the patio overlooking the Holy City. Breathtakingly Beautiful! We will definitely be returning to the King David Hotel. I can't say enough good things about this place. Don't stay anywhere else!!! Miss Israel already!

10 Star Hotel

From the checkin until departure I couldn't find one bad thing about this hotel. The entire staff was far above par and the historical features are fascinating. This is a 10 star hotel and I won't stay anywhere else when in Jerusalem.

Beautiful classic hotel in Jerusalem

Posted Aug 11, 2016 on Hotels
We were initially given a room on lower floors that we not renovated, and we did not like it. We ended up staying on the upper levels (6th and 5th) and it made a big difference- rooms were totally redone, and beds and showers were great. Staff was amazing, very helpful, they went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant and memorable one.

Stayed in many 5 star hotels and this was definitely one of the nicest! Wonderful service; any need was anticipated and met elegantly.

Beautiful, luxurious hotel

Posted Jul 26, 2016
Pros: Wonderful room with fantastic view. The (free) snacks were great. Traveling with an 11 and a 12 year old, I really appreciated the pool.
Cons: Almost every staff member in the hotel was great except for two rather lugubrious and dour checkin gentlemen.
Location: Location is perfect!
This was a wonderful, historic hotel to stay in. The location is fabulous.

The Best In Jerusalem, the best in the world!

Posted Jun 9, 2016 on Hotels
My fiance and I came to Israel for a 3 week vacation. We stayed at several 5 star hotels along the way: Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem, Dan Eilat and the Ritz Carlton Herzliya. The King David Hotel was by far, unequivocally the best! We are from the United States and travel often. We are used to hotels like the Langham Chicago, Ritz Carlton Central Park, Beverly Willshire, Wynn Las Vegas to name a few. I do not say the following lightly: None of them compare to the prestige and service provided by the King David Hotel and the buffet in the dining room is the best buffet in the world. Other 5 star hotels should come to the King David to train their staff. It is just that good.
