The King David Hotel in Jerusalem

The legendary King David Hotel in Jerusalem is no doubt the most famous hotel of this unique city. Its refinement and elegance unveil a glorious past.

Located on a hill, Hotel King David offers an incomparable view on the walls, minarets and domes of the Old City.

Opened in 1931, it has been badly damaged in 1946 by a fatal attack of the Irgun. Rebuilt and renovated, it is one of the luxury hotels of Israel.
