Overall, we were very pleased with this hotel. We had a two-bedroom suite, with one room equipped with two junior-sized beds for the kids and a master bedroom (to which the staff added a crib for our infant). The rooms were a bit snug, but were recently renovated and intelligently designed so that we did not feel cramped. The beds were adequate.
The bathroom had plenty of shelf space and all the necessary toiletries.
Breakfast was typical Israeli hotel fare. Although many "American style" choices were available, the buffet was slightly skewed toward the Israeli palate (cheese, salads, etc.). A chef prepared omelets on the spot as per guests' request. It wasn't the King David, but it was certainly acceptable.
Clientelle spanned the full range from fervently Orthodox families to spaghetti-strap tank top tourists (this was July).
Of course, the biggest advantage of the Kings over many other Jerusalem hotels is the excellent location. Smack in the middle of downtown, near the Great Synagogue, a short stroll from Independence Park and a few downhill blocks to Mamilla and Jaffa Gate. Despite the central location, the rooms are quiet.
Other plusses: There is a supermarket across the street, and a synagogue on the premises.
Downsides: No guest parking; useless workout room.
Overall, a solid pick for Jerusalem touring.
