We stayed at the King David last week, reserving four rooms for our family over four nights. Fantastic location, fantastic staff, fantastic hotel in every way. The service by the staff is first rate with each guest made to feel very special. The rooms are modern but with the charm of an older hotel. From those at the front desk...

Sure this place has history and has iconic status, but don't they milk it. For $700 US per night I expect the room to be serviced, the toilet not to run and pleasant service at the reception. Certainly got the sense that they were doing me a favour by letting me stay there. Great looking hotel but not value for...

This is a luxury hotel. And this is a luxury in everything from cleanliness to service. Classic suites, without pomposity and frills. Kitchen for all tastes. Open pool. Parking of the hotel. 5 minutes walk from both the old city and the center. Near a large and beautiful park.

I look forward to coming back to the King David like few hotels in the world. It is historic beyond belief as well as beautiful. The service is outstanding. The breakfast is legendary. You don't need to eat for the rest of the day, certainly not lunch (maybe a little falafel or hummus). The walk to the Old City through...

King David it is by far the best hotel in Jerusalem. Best service, extremely skilled personnel, unbeatable location and full of history. The views of the old city from every window transport you. The gardens surrounding the property are immaculate to perfection.

A beautiful well maintained hotel, comfortable in all respects. Concierge most helpful on a daily basis. The food in the downstairs restaurant was exceptional. We enjoyed a traditional Jewish dinner on Friday THE place to state when in Jerusalem.

The place in town if you ask the bus driver where is the best place in town the bus would stop here and you get off at the best place in town - I love downstairs in the lobby people watching- always a big buzz

The claim of best hotel in town is true! Don't be scared by the price, it is well worth it. We discovered that the hotel has a rich history too. The service is exceptional, the rooms very comfortable, the view amazing. The hotel also has a great breakfast buffet and restaurants for other meals. Definitely the place to stay if...

We went to Israel for 8 days to celebrate our anniversary and to visit a land laden with religious meaning, colorful cultural experiences, exotic sights and, yes, fabulous food. Well, we found such food but it was in the tiny street front cafes of Jerusalem and decidedly not in one of the most prestigious hotels in the country. We were...
