A tasty and varied breakfast ,in a huge beautifully decorated Sukka. Even though the place was bursting at the seams ..the service was excellent and Head Waiter Rashid was very accommodating. Will be visiting there again.

The hotel is gorgeous, well maintained, the service is top quality Continental, and the food is world class kosher. The bedrooms are lovely, and the minibar is free. Close to Old City, shopping. The manager met me when we came in. The breakfast is overwhelming, super!

Staying at the King David was one of the highlights of my trip to Jerusalem. The service was unassuming and gracious - I felt inspired to be staying at a place graced by so many legends. I hope to be back on holiday soon.

From the moment I stepped foot in the Kind David until my departure, the service was outstanding and surpassed my expectations. I would particularly like to single out your manager and restaurant staff who made our stay extra special. They were incredibly attentive, and made every effort to pay special attention to my parents.
