We have just visited The King David Hotel and loved it. We had a refurbished room on the sixth floor which was beautiful. Enjoyed the best buffet breakfast with a huge variety of delicious foods. We loved the pool area and also the terrace where we enjoyed dinner one night and a good spot for a sociable drink after dinner. Great service on the terrace thanks to Avi who really looked after us and seemed a very efficient hardworking member of staff. The concierge was also very helpful with helping to make restaurant recommendations. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future.
We didn't stay here but I imagine it is a wonderful location. Just a walk through the lobby was fine. Cool signatures on the hall flooring, lovely inviting furniture beaconing for you to stay and fabulous floral arrangements to into each the eyes. Lovely stroll.
It's been several years since we were at the King David, but staying for a week during Passover, 2017, we were so pleased that the hotel has maintained its charm while the updated rooms and public facilities were outstanding. Our 6th floor rooms were spacious, the bathrooms roomy, the restaurants and service staff outstanding - as they have always been. We recognize many staff members and they all went out of there way to do things for us and our family. The breakfast buffet is amazing. The pool area and restaurant have been updated and were excellent and enjoyable. The KD has blended 5 star luxury with its magnificent tradition and history.
Maravilhosoooooo!!!! The best!!! Top !!! Incrível!!! Wonderfuuuuul view, great rooms , perfect breakfast! Every detail to make your stay amazing! My favourite place in The world! Walking distance to the Western Wall and to the Mamilla Mall. Lighting the Shabat Candles at the Lobby made me feel at home!
We decided to stay at the King David because it had such a great reputation, with an amazing history, and it is one of the Leading Hotels of the World. Celebrities and world leaders have stayed here, so how could we resist? Check in was fine. The check in staff was friendly, and we were walked up to our newly remodeled room. The closets are great with two sides and plenty of room. We had USB sockets, and a 110 plug on one of walls. We needed a 110 plug next to the bed, however, so I called down to the concierge and we had a lengthy conversation as to why I needed a converter when there was already a 110 plug in the room. He understood and said that he would send the maintenance guy up with the converter. 20 minutes later the maintenance guy knocked on our door and proceeded to hand me an adapter. I explained that I actually needed the converter. He scowled at me and told me that there was already a 110 plug in the room and I didn’t need a converter. I explained that I needed a 110 plug next to my bed. He rolled his eyes and said he’d be back. He was. 30 minutes later, grumpily plugged the converter in and left. Our first day of the “best breakfast in Jerusalem”, the host didn't smile as she said "Room number". Not, "Good morning. How are you? Two for breakfast? May I have your room number please?" We were ushered past two dining rooms, about half full, to a side room by ourselves. Of all the empty tables to seat us at, we ended up next to the dumping ground for the dirty dishes. Not knowing what to do, since no one had explained anything, we sat for several minutes with no one coming to deliver coffee, water, juice or anything. Even though the waiter was folding napkins or something less than 10 feet away. I finally got up and had to ask the waiter what we were to do. He looked at me like was an idiot and told me it was a buffet. We had to wave this guy over several time to ask for coffee and refills and he acted like he was doing us a favor. Some mornings the Maitre'd stopped by, sometimes he didn't. There was ONE kid, Hamza, who waited on us after our third morning who was very attentive. He actually spoke with us and asked us about our stay, and our trip. Asked us where we were from, refilled our coffee, and water. We didn’t have to wave him down once. He smiled even. It was nice. He also came over the next morning specifically to say hello, and ask how our previous day was and what our plans were for the day. One night we decided to order room service for dinner. I looked all over the room for the room service menu. I found the folder it was supposed to be in, but it was missing. So, I called room service and explained that I needed a dinner menu, since the one we had was missing. I had to clarify a couple of times that I wanted a dinner menu, and NOT the breakfast tag to hang on the door for a morning delivery. When the maid showed up, she handed me the breakfast tag. I explained that I wanted a dinner menu. She told me there was one in the room. I told her there wasn’t. She practically shoved me out of the way so she could prove to me that there was a menu in the room. Stating, "its in here!" I asked her to show it to me. She obviously couldn't and left in a huff. Our room service order arrived much more quickly than estimated. They told me 25 minutes, but I don’t think it was even 10. I ordered gazpacho and a Caesar salad. It came without a spoon for the soup. Nor was there dressing for/on the salad. The pretty flowers in the room were left to rot, turn brown, and the water turn cloudy. And the maid left a cleaning rag in the closet. Sometimes she replaced our wash clothes. The minibar was not restocked ever. The newspaper was only delivered twice during the 5-night stay. No laundry service on Saturday. They ended up mis-delivering one of my sweaters to the people in room 305. How do I know this? Because when I called to say I was missing one of my sweaters, they delivered it with the old room tag on it. While our room was wonderful, there was an issue with noise. We were in one of the end suites that can be combined with the room next door for large families. But the insulation between the adjoining doors is non-existent. Every time someone knocked or rang the neighbor’s door, we got up to answer it. It got really annoying. It was also really annoying to hear the kids and the parents yell at each other, wrestle, hit the walls, etc. Maybe I’m being overly picky. But there is a video that plays every time you turn on the TV that talks about the friendliness of the staff, the impeccable service, and their extremely high standards. Maybe the staff needs to be reminded where they work.
Rooms were large and comfortable. Bed a little hard. So easy to get to Old City. Can walk. Near Mamilla shopping center and our favorite restaurant called Eucalyptus. If you have difficulty with stairs ask for rooms with the elevator even though the newer rooms are up the stairs. Breakfasts were the best I ever had in Israel. Although the week before Passover the hotel had already gotten rid of chometz (I did miss my croisants) there was so much variety of food that it made up for it. Our only complaint was the French restaurant where the food had to be sent back several times as the supposedly medium rare meats and hamberger were raw!
It's the best hotel in Jerusalem. Only 10 minutes Walk from Jaffa Gate which is the main gate to go to Old Jerusalem. The room is big enough to accommodate 3 guests comfortably. Nice buffet breakfast with a lot of food options. Nice swimming pool and has tennis court. Nice welcome amenities waiting in our room when we checked in. I highly recommend this beautiful hotel.
This is the ultimate destination in Jerusalem. It is faultless. The service is impeccable as is the hotel. The view of the old city is stunning. The garden and the swimming pool is unique for Jerusalem. The terrace area where we had lunch is idyllic and the food was excellent.Absolutely delightful!
I went to Israel on a two week pilgrimage with a group of 24. One of our last places we stayed at was the BEA-U-TI-FUL King David Hotel located only a 15 minute walk to the Old City. I can see why this Hotel is legendary and considered to be the most famous Hotel in all of Jerusalem! We didn't stay in any of the suites which were breathtaking, but in simple yet elegant rooms, which was perfect for the two of us. Our stay in Jerusalem was from Good Friday till Monday. Upon entering the Hotel I did not know what a Shabbat Elevator was, so when the door to this elevator opened on the 5th floor I was thinking I did something to cause it to stop on every floor and open! Nothing I did remedied it from stopping and opening. Finally a nice older gentleman informed me that during the Sabbath this particular elevator goes to the top floor and stops at every floor so that people don't break Sabbatical law! You may want to be mindful of this if you find yourself in Israel from sundown on Friday till sundown on Saturday. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the wait staff very helpful and kind. I highly recommend this luxury Hotel!
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 to the bartenders, servers in the breakfast room and others, this is a great hotel which we will not hesitate to return to on our next visit.
