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!
