Located just down the street from the venerable King David Hotel, a short walk from Jaffa Gate, the David Citadel is one of Jerusalem's sleekest larger hotels. Built in the late 1990s, the hotel has managed to create a distinctive Jerusalem ambiance, while maintaining all the modern conveniences of a top flight international hotel. Many rooms face the Old City, and all are beautifully appointed in subtle hues. The buffet Israeli breakfast is second to none, and the health club is amongst the best in the city. In season, the outdoor pool is an added attraction that's surrounded by lush foliage and attractive rocks. The hotel is across the street from the popular Mamilla Mall and a short walk from the restaurants and night life of Ben Shetach and Helena Hamalka Streets.
