                            Well, what can you say - it's King David, the best hotel in Jerusalem, where everybody stays. Celebrities since 1930-ies. From Stephen Howking to Metallica. Nice big rooms. Even the ones that don't face the Old Town, have a great view of the ymca tower. Swimming pool. Absolutely gorgeous breakfast - the best I've had anywhere in the world.

                            As in most expensive hotels, Internet is not free. Come on people!

                            After having been in some 5 star hotels in jerusalem, i expected more from king david, according to its reputation. Beautiful hotel, confortable, but not outstanding, specially, in cosideration of its prices. It is by far the most expensive hotel in jerusalem and for sure not the best one

                            The staff was not very friendly and helpful and i had an average room, outrageously expensive for what it was.

                            Location, atmosphere, breakfast on Friday morning (which was very different from other days).

                            A little bit pricey, even for a qiute high level of comport.

                            The hotel and staff were marvelous. It is truly one of the world's great hotels. Channel 1 on the TV is a documentary on the hotel and its history which was very informative about the role of the hotel in the 6 Day War, the peace talks with Sadat, the ousting of the British from Jerusalem. It is also just a short walk to the Jaffa Gate of the Old City. Great place to stay and relax after a hard day of sightseeing, if one can afford it.

                            Unfortunately the food in the main restaurant is dire - dirty curtains near our table very poor not to offer free wi fi in this day and age

                            Great History and the signatures on the Lobby floor add to the glamour and heritage. Excellent Breakfast buffet and the restaurant staff were very attentive. We had magnificent views of the Old City from our room and felt this is indeed one of The Leading Hotels of the World.

                            Surprised that the dusting of our room was so poor in a hotel of this quality. I mentioned the dirt under the fridge door to the supervisor of chamber maids but no action was taken. The Sabbath evening meal was dreadful. The restaurant was packed but many people left their meals as it was inedible.. The quality of the chicken balls was like leather. The desert was ghastly. The only good thing on offer was the bread. Expensive and terrible. Would never eat in this restaurant ( apart from breakfast which is excellent) again unless there was a substantial improvement. We have never had such a poor quality meal in a 5 star establishment. A great disappointment.

                            We are spoilt tourists but still appreciate the King David. We like the atmosphere, and especially love the renovated new rooms, love their size which you don't have in newer hotels. Pity though that the breakfast is not outside as in the David Citadel but the pool at the kd is much nicer so you can't have it all , can you! Food was good on the terasse restaurant, though the service not tip top which is should be, not quite professional enough. I saw that some of the waiters english was a bit lacking...We live on the coast so appreciate a few days in the cool dry climate from time to time, shabbot as well, and love to come to you.

                            The proximity and view of the old city of Jerusalem was fantastic, especially at night. We also got an upgrade to the top floor which was wonderful.

                            Great breakfast buffet and wonderful pool area

                            The front desk , with one exception, were rude and unhelpful. The room was tired and dated and certainly not up to current luxury standards (eg, no outlet in the bathroom). A light was out in the bathroom for 3 days. One night the pass 'key' would not work in the door and so I had to go back down to the desk 3 times to get replacement passes which did not work. No one came with me to make sure the door opened! Finally a maid called security who, when he finally came, had to re-program the lock. Meanwhile my wife and I are standing in the hallway for more than 30 minutes.

                            An iconic hotel and rightly so. Everythi g was wonderful from the professionalism and friendliness of the staff, to the luxury of the rooms and opulence of surroundings.

                            There is only one little niggle. In Israel there seems to be free wi-fi virtually everywhere, from the cheapest cafe to even churches. So why does this hotel want to charge an exorbitant amount (about £12 per day) for wi-fi? Seems a bit churlish after the amount we pay to stay there. (However cross rhe road, sit outside the ymca and they have it for free). Other than that small thing I couldn't fault it in any way.

                            Beautiful historic hotel with an amazing story to tell. Tradition and excellence throughout. We were upgraded to an executive room on the 6th floor facing the Old City--truly magnificent in every way. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Breakfast staff especially friendly and anxious to please. Good fitness facility and beautiful pool. Terrace (garden) restaurant was accessible and fairly priced. Good for lunch. Enjoyed exploring the historic floor of signatures and all photographic chronology. A special experience!!

                            Nothing...everything great...except room price, while worth it, was high.

                            Hotels in Jerusalem do not meet western standards yet in spite of their relatively high prices. King David Hotel is an old fashion luxury hotel. The location is superb at 10 minutes walk to the Old City. The outdoor pool is very pretty and convenient. The rooms are spacious. We recommend the delux. If you like late 60's hotel palace style, you will really enjoy this place.

                            The interior design is dated. The hotel would be fantastic if it was refurbished. The staff is not always putting attention to details. In more than one occasion, plates were not 100% clean.
