We stayed here on a pre cruise package. It was great. We paid extra for a view across Old Jerusalem and as our stay coincided with a special birthday, flowers from the family were arranged in advance. They were perfect. The guys on Reception are first class. Nothing was too much trouble for Evi Ichie who is a Super Star....

We came to Jerusalem for a family event and had a one night stay at David Citadel. The room was great. Overlooking the Citadel and the swimming pool. The hotel itself was absolutely spotless! So so clean and beautiful. Everyone was super nice! Especially Manuel the assistant front office manager, Anan house keeping manager and Revital the guest relation manager....

We stayed at the David Citadel in October for a function and I don't think this hotel is as recognised as it should be!

This hotel delivers exactly as expected for an establishment of this level. The place is beautiful, Rooms are nice and updated, facilities are excellent and the location can't be beat. We were there for an extended stay of twelve days and were extremely happy. The Breakfasts are a feast for a king I would recommend eating in the outdoor area....

I checked in and out as a group so I'm not sure about this aspect of the hotel but the hotel is very nice. Modern and a great location. 5-10 minute walk to one of the walls. Modern shops and a few souvenir shops on the way. How can the hotel go wrong when they give you l'occitane supplies? The...

Davids Citadel is ideally located for the visitor to Jerusalem-- a clear pathway for the walk to the Old City, as well as to the Mamilla Mall and numerous local restaurants. The Citadel's rooms are well appointed--many have recently been refurbished-- and are comfortably outfitted (including bedding). The service is generally quite good, even when tourists descend en masse. The...

The accommodations at David Hotel Citadel were awesome! We were here for 4 nights in November with our tour group. Our room #832 over looked the Mamila mall. It could be a little noisy with honking but nothing terrible for facing the street in the city. The hotel is very nice in the lobby. The room was a good size...
