“excellent hotel - highly recommended”
Reviewed 26 July 2009

This was our second stay at the hotel and we were not disappointed.

The hotel is ideally located and close to great restaurants, shops and of course the old city.

The hotel pool is wonderful with views over the old city. The pool staff especially Ariel and Avishai were great ambassadors of the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and the pool was managed magnificently by Yossi.

Breakfasts could not be beaten and the restaurant was very well staffed and again very well managed by Mousser Qazz.

We had the misfortune to have lunch by the pool at the King David Hotel and the rude staff, poor service and average food confirmed that the David Citadel remains the best hotel in Jerusalem by a long way.

Best 5* hotel in Jerusalem. Would definately choose the David Citadel over King David. Everything is sparkling new and location can't be beat. Opt for a room with a terrace and an Old City/pool view.

My wife and I moved to the Citadel from another hotel and we had a great welcome and a great weekend!
It is in a walking distance from the old city and from other tourist areas
The service quick!
The service was execellent!
All the public areas and the room were very clean.
What was bothering was the fact that although the room rates are expensive (!), they charge you for extras such as gym, parking etc...
But the overall experience was great!

We spent the past week at the Citadel, opting for this property instead of the King David which is located about 100 yards down the street. This was the right decision! The hotel is modern and spotless. We were prepared for, and anticipated rude staff... nothing could be further than the truth. Everyone from the doorman to the front desk, wait-staff and housekeepers were friendly and helpful. The rooms we chose (Alcove Deluxe) was large with a balcony and a (somewhat) view of the Old City. The bathroom was exceptional, lot of hot water, and we needed it as there was a heat wave. Air conditioning totally silent and perfect. Other highlights were a great pool with a very pleasant lifeguard, who seemed to be an ambassador to the hotel. A great sushi restaurant on the second floor. The breakfast (included) was enough to fill you up. The coffee was strong and administered freely! We walked over to the King David and it is more traditional and after all, it is a historical site. But, I've stayed in landmark properties before... let's just say I'll leave the adventure for the day and get a peaceful sleep at night. They even had a wedding one night and although we were just one floor away, in our room you could not hear a thing. My conclusion: this is it.. perfect and yes , pricey!
