Built from Jerusalem limestone and shaped like a horseshoe, the David Citadel perches on King David Street overlooking the Old City. Designed by Israeli architect, Moshe Safdie, and recently renovated by Italian designer, Piero Lissoni, it pays homage to Jerusalem’s past while offering the luxuries befitting a five-star hotel.
The 385 guestrooms and suites ooze elegance, with oak parquet flooring, muted neutral tones, modern classic furniture, atmospheric lighting, and select artworks. Sophisticated technology blends into the rooms, while the Old City views are among the best in town. The spacious en suites house rainshowers and deep freestanding tubs.
Seasons Restaurant offers a breakfast buffet, while Scala serves local cuisine. There’s also a sushi bar and rooftop grill.
Located close to Jaffa Gate, the David Citadel is ideally located for exploring Jerusalem’s Old City and Mount of Olives. At the end of the day, relax and unwind at the rooftop pool and spa.

"Just about everything at David Citadel is on a sweeping scale. Wonderfully opulent rooms showcase rich woods and woven fabrics, and many have balconies or terraces facing the Old City. A pianist plays in the evenings, there’s a large shady terrace, and the outdoor pool is linked by a channel to the hotel’s interior which makes it very inviting, even on a cold day.”
