Hotel Description

One might very well expect a hotel called the King David, in Jerusalem, to be a pretty majestic affair — and it is. This is the original Jerusalem grand hotel, a classical edifice in pink quartz, dating back to the Thirties (and thus predating the state of Israel as we now know it). Best of all, you don’t have to be a global superstar or head of state to enjoy the King David’s immaculate service standards, though don’t be surprised when they show up, as they inevitably do.

There’s a lot to love about the new wave of boutique hospitality, but there’s also something irreplaceable about the traditional grand-hotel experience. It starts with the architecture, and carries on in interactions with the staff — if you’re used to beautiful but inexperienced boutique staffers, a dose of old-world professionalism ought to shock you to your senses. The style, just as importantly, remains true to the King David’s history, patiently balancing nostalgia and exoticism with harmonious wood, sumptuous fabrics, and a warm, inviting palette. Fundamentals — room size, amenities — have been modernized, while the tray ceilings and arched windows remain as charming as ever. Though it’s a cliché to say it, the new King David is the best of both worlds: authentic period atmosphere without any sacrifice in comfort.

A hotel is more than its rooms. The restaurants are relentlessly upscale, particularly La Regence, where top-tier haute-Israeli specialties demonstrate the power of excellent taste and technique combined. And if world-class single-malts are your thing, Oriental Bar has you covered, with fascinating and elaborate wall treatments to boot. The King David is still the first choice for visiting dignitaries and VIPs, straddling the Old and New Cities with postcard views of both — and for the rest of us, in search of a grand introduction to Jerusalem, it’s hard to do much better.

Please note: Standard rooms can accommodate a maximum of two persons; deluxe rooms can accommodate a maximum of three persons.
