How to Get There
The King David is in an amazing location and easy walking distance of the old city. It’s got an amazing history. The check in was very efficient and we were upgraded to a garden terrace room with a fab view. Overall a good stay but it’s quite dated and public areas are dusty. The room was comfortable but the bathroom is v 1980’s with a shower knob missing. Breakfast is very Israeli with no concessions to anything else unlike most international hotels these days. Yet to find good coffee in Israel too!
We didn’t eat anything else in the hotel. Good for a couple of nights and prob better in summer as the pool and grounds looked lovely - really terrible and v old hair dryer ( always annoying )
We usually stay at the King David when in Jerusalem, after all its a landmark institution. They always seem to assign us a very comfortable suite and indeed the staff are very sweet.... even if no one was stirring when we wanted to check out at 0600 hrs on a sabbath morning, the reception clerk being fast asleep behind the counter and the door man deeply dozing in an arm chair near the front door...perhaps not too good from a security point of view?
The menu arrangements in the two restaurants may seem a bit complex to non-kosher folk, but everyone can soon get the hang of it and the grub is indeed delicious. But I must confess that I have never before encountered an elevator rigged to automatically ascend to the sixth floor on sabbath days....rather exotic.
This historic hotel was a lovely introduction to Jerusalem. The grounds are lovely with beautiful plantings, a view of the old city from the terrace and delightful pool. (Do note the pool closes the last week in October). Our room had a small balcony with table and chairs, desk and very comfortable king size bed. Our bathroom had two sinks, a great shower and luxury amenities. The towels were large and soft. The robes big and comfy -even for my 6'4" husband. The breakfast featured something for everyone from breakfast cheeses and meats to eggs, wondrous breads, eggs, mid-Eastern choices. It is impossible not to find something you like - plus they make to order French toast, eggs and pancakes. The service in the dining room was always friendly and efficient. The front desk could be rude and dismissive at times. The bartender was a delight; remembering the previous night's orders and our previous choices. The staff was friendly and responded immediately to any requests. The welcome gift of figs and candy was a welcome surprise. There are small refrigerators in each room. The lobby is beautiful, yet comfortable and a lovely spot to linger. Can;t imagine wanting to stay anywhere else.
This hotel could not have been located in a better spot in Jerusalem. The service was perfect. Whenever you call the front desk or guest services, the phone was answered in 1 ring. Breakfast buffet was delicious and varied. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
We traveled with a small prepaid tour group, so I can't speak to the pricing. The accommodations were excellent as was the attentive staff, front desk and dining room. Be prepared to eat more than you intend to for breakfast.A minor disappoint was the absence of a coffee maker in the room, not enough of a problem to detract from the 5 stars.
