The King David Hotel in Jerusalem, Israel, is one of the most iconic landmarks in the Holy City. Inside this majestic palace, history was made in many occasions. This hotel won numerous national and international prizes over the years for its uniqueness, elegance and importance. It is the ultimate luxury destination in the Holy City, where you can really feel history, traditions and culture, while having an impressive luxurious and unforgettable stay.
Superbly located on an elevated site, the King David Jerusalem Hotel offers incomparable views of the Old City walls, minarets and domes.
THE KING DAVID HOTEL
The King David Hotel is a huge palace, beautifully and smartly decorated, which offers a very high-end service and facilities. It has a big outdoor swimming-pool, tennis courts, a fine dining restaurant, a fabulous bar and wide lobby, everything surrounded by historical and art pieces.
Superbly located, from the King David Hotel all guests can enjoy one of the most spectacular views of the city! I feel incredibly lucky that I had the chance to go also to the rooftop, as the view from there literally made my jaw drop – literally! I had to hold my breath as it was just too beautiful up there!:)
I loved this hotel so much for many reasons. My favorite part is surely the “Reading Room”, which is located on the ground floor between the lobby and the bar. What a magnificent place!
THE LUXURIOUS SUITES
During my stay at the legendary King David Hotel in Jerusalem, I had the pleasure to experience one of the best luxury suites. This room is located on the 3rd floor, with a private terrace that faces the Old City Walls, which is really a breathtaking view of the Holy City. The room is spacious, with very elegant interiors and beautiful carpets on wood-floor. The TVs are hidden behind big mirrors, both in the living room as well as in the bedroom: I loved this contrast between the high tech and the more conservative decorations!
In the morning I ordered my breakfast in the room, and I think it couldn’t be better: fresh delicious food served on my private balcony, having the best view of Jerusalem… what a blessing! 🙂
Furthermore, the bed was very comfortable and big, with the King David initials on the sheets – adorable!
The bathroom has a wide shower, as well a great bath with jacuzzi. All body products are branded by Dan Hotels (as well as for Dan Hotel Tel Aviv Hotel).
Moreover, I loved finding another hidden TV behind the bathroom mirror too! You can watch it and listen to music while having a bath, hugely appreciated!
KOSHER FINE DINING @ ‘LA REGENCE’ RESTAURANT
In addition to an amazing stay, I had also the pleasure to have a fabulous and delicious fine dining experience at La Regence Restaurant, which is located inside the King David Hotel indeed. It has been one-of-a-kind meal as everything served was Kosher food, which was prepared following the rules of this Jewish culinary tradition. Every time I travel somewhere I love embracing the local habits, and it felt pretty special exploring it through this gourmet dinner!
Also the wines served are all from Israel – I loved a Chardonnay from the region, highly recommended if you like white wine!
At La Regence Restaurant, the entire staff has been caring and helpful, always ready to explain to us every curiosity we had.
Every dish served was absolutely phenomenal, the quality of the products used was very high, indeed every bite was a pure pleasure.
As you know by now, I am not a big fan of sweets and desserts, but I couldn’t resist to get this beautiful (and delicious!!!) one, made with the finest chocolates and olive oil spheres!
DRINKS AT THE KING DAVID BAR
The King David Bar offers a wide range of wines and spirits. The bartenders are extremely professional and the cocktails are very good! I also had a wine tasting of local wine and they were very good, highly recommended! the atmosphere is relaxed and elegant, perfect for any occasion!
THE SPA & THE FITNESS CENTER
Inside the King David there is a cozy fitness center where you can also get a private session with a personal trainer. There is also a small spa for massages and treatments, available upon previous booking. The staff is very gentle, able to accommodate any of your requests!
I hugely recommend this luxurious hotel if you are looking for a very elegant and fabulous stay during your time in Jerusalem, or at least having a meal at La Regence Restaurant while you are in town!
And you… Are you lusting for the sublime?
