The hotel is a wonderful place to stay; close to the old city and walking distance from many shops. Front desk staff including Joddie, Meital and Yazan were a pleasure to deal with. Housekeeping did a very nice job

We had a great stay here while in Jerusalem. The location couldn't have been any better. A walk away from everything! As well as tons of good food within walking distance. The front desk was very accommodating from finding boxes to ship things home to helping make arrangements. Breakfast was included and had a great assortment of food. Yazeed Siyam helped us out at breakfast and was a great waiter.

Wonderful eating on the Citadel Terrace early enough in the morning to see the sun rise over the Old Walled City and being served by my favorite waiter on the trip, Samir. Israeli buffet breakfasts are as good as they get and the Citadel offers one of the best.

The rooms, the service, the food and the location were superb and ideal for our first visit to Israel. We stayed three nights and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very accommodating. Every morning I would sit on the balcony dining area overlooking the pool and watch the sunrise over the Ancient City. I was warmly greeted each morning on the balcony with a hot cup of coffee by Ata Bayah. Ata provided me with first class service and helped to start my day off on a high note. I would highly recommend the David Citadel to anyone traveling to Jerusalem!!

Great view of the wall, but Loud street noise if door opened for fresh air. With door closed room was very quiet. Very good b fast buffet, and personalized service by ATA. Smaller dining area at night with Excellent Service by Tom. Menu is interesting but a little limited for we American Christians! REMEMBER TO TURN THE TUB’S SHOWER HEAD OFF BEFORE RETURNING IT TO ITS CRADLE.

Can't get tired of going back again and again no matter what time of year. Sukkot especially is magical. With multiple visits to the Citadel, hotel staff treat you as family, many will remember your name, your family, your favorite table, favorite drink etc. etc. Sayid, Abed, Waleed and Dabash are just a few of the very special staff members who genuinely care to make your stay special. can't wait to go back, would mot consider any other hotel. Hotel is beautiful, staff is great and Location, Location, Location. They have it all.

The Hotel location is fantastic. The facilities are super comfortable, the staff very friendly and very accommodating. My highlight of the trip was the wonderful spread of the buffet breakfast and the exceptionally friendly staff serving you there. Sa’id a man served us coffee with his infectious smile and hospitality everyday. He made the hotel feel like home away from home. His welcoming attitude is something that will be my most favorite memory of my stay. Overall the cleanliness , food , facilities and location were an A plus. A highly recommended hotel.

If not for Hadar Abed and Said we would not have enjoyed our stay. Best to avoid peak religious holiday time as guests overtake the management of this hotel I felt sorry for the staff as there was so much abuse they could take. Outsiders would constantly try to get through security and this caused inconvience to guests who found it difficult to enter the hotel The staff at the executive club were always obliging. The rooms were clean and more than satisfactory but no views. The concierge desk was very helpful always polite and knew their job. We needed to call security a number of times as guests were noisy and let their children run wild. For non religious people it’s best not to stay there.

Very comfortable, stylish well appointed room. Staff very helpful, nothing was too much trouble often went above and beyond. Enjoyable stay and would be happy to recommend, and would be more than happy to stay again.

5 Stars magnificent experience in every way. Definitely the number one hotel in Jerusalem for luxury accommodation, overall ambience and delicious food. Zeev Aslan the Sales Manager was a pleasure to deal with and accommodated my family and group needs. Munir at the Reservations desk so professional making sure everything was as requested. Ameed in Banquets hosted our group with all of our changes and needs flawlessly. Baha the Operations Manager. Always checking up and on top of everything guaranteeing that everyone’s stay is perfect. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay and can’t wait for the next.
