About a quarter mile outside the walled old city, this 5 star hotel has an excellent location..as you would expect from this highly rated hotel, the rooms are large the service is A plus, the morning buffet is as good as it gets, with old fashion well dressed waiter staff. Our travel group was quite impressed but the daily wine...

I've stayed at KD 4 times this year, so any criticism reflects poorly on me. After being scared into better service early this year by new luxury hotels, they are back to Israeli service with a snarl, but staying there still feels like being part of history.

The home for many world leaders when visiting Israel, the Kind David has signatures of some of their important guests, from all through the years on the lobby floor. It's a very impressive list of guests to say the least. We had a warm friendly welcome and escort to our room. The room was very large but unfortunately my agency...

We stayed at the King David in late October 2014 for a family Bar / Batmitzvah with family members coming from all over the world to celebrate the occasion. As usual, the service and overall experience was first class with care and attention throughout all areas of the hotel. There may be 'glitzier' and trendier properties around but frankly nothing...

We reserved with the American Express Platinum Fine Hotels concierge and it was a great choice - we were extended every courtesy, including a room upgrade. It is a grand hotel in the old European style, with big public rooms, and a spectacular terrace cafe. The views of the Old City are epic, and the breakfast buffet is simply unrivaled....

Stayed 5 nights as part of Odysseys Unlimited Tour. Our room was nice. King bed, bathroom double sink, tub/shower combo. Good buffet breakfast. Friday night dinner was a disappointment....overcooked. Location close to the Old City is good. Walked to Mamilla Mall for restaurants. Also ate at the YMCA across the street.

We stayed for four nights in October at the king David. We were in the rooms that have been recently renovated. They are lovely. The hotel location is great, and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast is a treat. We would definitely stay here again!
