“Best in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

First time in Israel. Fantastic location great food and service. Look for Mr. Said in the dining room he is a wonderful server. When we return to Israel we will stay here again. Wish there was a coffee maker in the room though.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

We just returned from a phenomenal trip in Israel, only enhanced by the extraordinary ability of our guide who morphed archeological digs into living history. We truly walked the Bible! In addition to his depth of knowledge he introduced our group of 10 from the Chicago area, to outstanding leaders who represented different perspectives of life's choices in Israel. Everyone of our additional outstanding guides were from the East Coast and had made aliyah anywhere from 5 years ago to more than 4 decades ago. We met a Rabbi who started a Yeshiva in Jerusalem 4o years ago, we met a gentleman from Australia who is involved with settling Jews in areas that might considered somewhat hostile, we met a young archeologist who gave us a riveting lecture at a site in the Old City, we met a couple who support and entertain the IDF with contageous enthusiasm, we met a young Russian emigrant who has made Tel Aviv outskirts his home and teaches in Chicago as well as in Israel, and more. We are heading back to Israel and looking for Ram to guide us through more than a "sightseeing" experience, but rather, an experience that is intellectually stimulating and allows for introspection and appreciation of different composites that make up this Mosaic of Israel.

On our last visit to Jerusalem, me and my family decided to reside in the David Citadel Hotel. Surprisingly, the hospitality we recieved was mind blowing. The hotel's staff are absolutely very friendly. They showed us around and were extremely helpful. Not to mention how we got spoiled in the dinning room. SAID was super friendly, he welcomed us from the beginning with Hot coffee and fresh orange juice . Definitely will come back again.

The Hotel room overlooking the old city was breathtaking and romantic.
The service was great, and breakfast was in true Israeli style, with a buffet like none other.
Couldn't have asked for a better day poolside with cold drinks and music.
If you are looking to be pampered in Jerusalem, visit this hotel

Room Tip: Enclave suites look over the old city.

An absolutely superb, world class hotel in the middle of Jerusalem. Everything from the location (our balcony overlooked the Old City) to the Staff, to the Service was top notch. We would come and stay here again, whenever we were in town

Room Tip: Suggest a junior suite with Old City Views

Great hotel. Very well situated and great service. Breakfast was awesome!!! This was made possible by Sa-id, the man running the breakfast there. He and his peers took care of all of us there with a smile.
