King David Jerusalem

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are huge with great bathrooms and showers. The service is a bit haphazard sometimes you get turn down, sometimes not, sometimes they come at 10 PM as you're bedding down. A/C works well after maintenance fixes it. Breakfast is very good, lots of choices. Be careful to check your bill as you leave, we were charged for the taxi to the airport (and a commission for charging in dollars), which we never authorized, having planned to get rid of extra shekels and paying the taxi driver at the end.Dairy restaurant of unknown name is fine. They were out of some items when we ate there. Lots of tables of unsupervised children eating alone, while parents sit at separate tables.

Stayed at the hotel for a family visit. The lobby area is dated and a little disappointing but the newly renovated rooms are nicely decorated and appointed. The pool area is expansive and well maintained. Good choice at breakfast and friendly staff.

This is definitely one of the nicest hotels that I’ve stayed at and it really holds a sense of history. The only reason I didn’t rate it as a “5” is due more to my own pernicketyness around things like bathroom amenities, how the room is made up each day, etc. So, having said that, my only two issues were 1) heat and 2) bathroom fixtures. Our first couple of nights in Jerusalem were rather chilly and we couldn’t seem to get our room warm enough, even after cranking the thermostat up as high as it would go. We had other guests in our party who had the same issue, so I’m wondering if it wasn’t something with the central heating system. This was not a problem after the second day as the weather improved and so did the room temperature. The issue with the bathroom fixtures related to the hot and cold faucet controls for the sink. They are round and stainless steel, and when they’re wet they’re almost impossible to grip with bare hands. I found myself having to use a face cloth to turn the water on and off. Two very small issues indeed, but I thought I’d mention them. Overall, a great experience and I would definitely stay here again if I could afford to.

Our room was great overlooking the Old City from the sixth floor. The only concern we had was the Food and Beverage service. It took forever to get a drink and menu after being seated. We utilized both the Meat & the Dairy restaurants, and noticed the supervisors on numerous occasions reprimanded the wait staff out in the public view during service, I felt sorry for the waiters. When you are finished and want to leave you MUST inform the server you want the check, otherwise, you will be waiting a long time. We actually had to go to the hostess stand and ask for our check. If you are American and cannot get a reservation for a room at "The King David" at least go for there coffee. If you like half & half in your coffee ask for 3% cream otherwise they will give you milk. Amir was our breakfast waiter he was a great server has been at the hotel for 30 years. Hadar on the front desk customer service team was so nice and professional she made our stay. We could only reserve two nights due to the hotel being full, but the beautiful interior, the fantastic view from our window, along with the staff and service was outstanding.

When it comes to delivering a superbly premium/well crafted hospitality experience, there's a reason the KD is usually referenced in reverential tones-- because nobody does it the way they do. Sure we live in a world where everything is rated by how curated and finely crafted your experience is. Well guess what? The KD's been delivering that kind of stay way before there was an internet for your brand to live and die by and they're only getting better with age

The king David is built for tourism and they do this very well. They know who their customers are and they go out of their way to make the western tourist feel very comfortable. If you are looking for something more authentic to the region then this place isn’t for you. This hotel could be in any major city in the western world. It’s nice and offers great comfort for your stay.

This hotel experience exceeded our expectations by far. The staff was friendly, professional and kind. Our rooms were spotless and the housekeeping came twice a day to make sure the rooms were up to our standards. Mohamad at the concierge made several arrangements for our family including VIP pickup at the airport and private tours that suited our families needs. Each morning we were impressed with a gorgeous spread of gourmet foods including cheeses, freshly squeezed juices, omlettes, cakes and anything you can imagine. It was a feast truly fit for a King!! They even surprised me for my birthday with a Chocolate mousse cake. The waiting staff was amazing and quick. The location was perfect, close to all amenities. We will definitely return to this hotel!!

this hotel is famous for a reason - it is an old fashioned full service hotel - my room was enormous - with a great view of the old city - the bed was comfortable and fitted with great linens - the bathroom was spacious and modern with surprisingly great shower. we were there for the beginning of passover - so food service was not as usual - but the included breakfast buffet was spectacular - even without any traditional baked goods.

This is a first class experience. All of the staff are friendly and helpful, right down to housekeeping staff. The dining room has great food and excellent service. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The coffee shop has sometimes slow, inattentive service, but the food and portions were good.

The King David is one of THE hotels of the world. Overlooking the ancient walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, the King David hotel is located in the heart of this impressive city. For decades the hotel has been & continues to be the foremost gathering place in Israel. Fundamentally, it is where people who make history, rug shoulders, literally with those who come to see it made. An added advantage when you stay, look at Channel 1 on the television in your room & it provides a superb historical context of the history of the country...celebrating its 70th anniversary this May. Breakfasts are a "must" with mature staff, adding to the rare ambience of the Hotel. Try dinner, half a floor below lobby level at La Regence restaurant. And dinner on Friday night for the Sabbath in the main Dining Room is an must reserve. The staff culture is highly impressive....... Oh, i wish my home was The King David Hotel in Jerusalem !
