We spent six luxurious nights at The King David, and it was quite the experience. This is a hotel driven to provide exceptional guest services, and they deliver consistently. Check-in: prior to your arrival, you receive an email asking for special requests or other check-in related information. However you instruct the staff to address you, they comply...well, with one exception:...

King David Hotel is evocative of the glamorous past but its standards are somewhat haphazard, tissues, towels, spoons etc were often not there. After a week's stay the soap stains on the towel rack were still there ! Very visable but never cleaned...though I did speak to the floor attendant . Why didn't I clean the soapy hand print? Because...

Beautiful hotel, built around 1920 by the British, gorgeous design, paneling, decorated ceilings. Reminiscent of the Titanic, but not as wet. The biggest breakfast buffet ever seen: at least 100 items, quite delicious. Or, you can order something cooked up, although I thought the buffet was better. Located 2 blocks from the Jaffa Gate of the Old Town and very...

A lovely historical property which has hosted many head of states and celebrities like Richard Nixon, Tony Blair, Jacqueline Onassis, Mikhail Gorbachov etc. It has preserved its old day charm and is a gorgeous property. The room was spacious and comfortable. The location is excellent and the restaurants had delicious veg food.

It's storied background is an educational experience in itself. Stayed with the family and they are one of the few hotels we've stayed in that have the option of having two rooms separated by a third door entryway that can be used (and locked) or remain open (and lock the individual rooms.

We visited Israel for the first time. Everything during our trip was simply perfect. The King David was no exception. Our corner room on the sixth floor overlooked the Old City as well as the New City. The room and bathroom was large and very comfortable as well as completely quiet. The only minor criticism was the HVAC was either...

I really liked the service and food that I received at the King David restaurant. My wife and I were on a Gate 1 tour and we went to see David on our first night. While I didn't understand the division of the restaurants with regards to eating Kosher, the food was great and the service was first class. The...

My mother and I stayed here for four nights in early December. The sense of history when you enter the hotel for the first time is most impressive, and in this regard the King David is quite unlike any other luxury hotel that I have ever stayed in. Whilst the quality of accommodation is very high, as one would expect,...

Just spent a weekend at this hotel and find myself undeserving to write a review on this overwhelmingly historic site. I could write about the beautiful decor, architecture, views, facilities, food and more but a hotel that since the 30s has been home to Kings Queens and Princes, Presidents and Prime Ministers, worldwide famous entertainers, musicians, actors and TV personalities...

We had opportunity to stay 9 nights at King David, professional staff, especially the concierge service, enhanced our experience. Helped solve extenuating problems. Felt its old world grandeur every time we entered lobby. Extravagant, but worth the splurge!
