8/10 Very good

No hot food on Sabbath
The overall stay at David Citadel was average. I want to say that Israel is very expensive, and naturally we paid up for the hotel. The location was fantastic. Easy walking to the Old town, and I cannot complain. The hotel itself was a bit run down, and the service was really average. I have trouble with the hotel restaurant with NOT serving anything HOT on Sabbath, and its only cold fish and no meat. I understand its a custom, but other outside restaurants do. Anyway, I was quite disappointed with the menu, as after a long day, you would want to stay in the hotel and rest.

2/10 Poor

1. The check in process was rude and disinterested. The shabis situation was not explained well, and we were confused thinking we couldn’t eat or have lights on. At no point we’re we offered alternative restaurant options other than we can go out and look for ourselves. The attended didn’t seem to care, didn’t explain WiFi, amenities, anything. He was so bored and disinterested. He didn’t care or want to be there with us. Awful welcome! 2. We are staying seven nights. We were put into a small room looking at a wall with a 1m wide window. 3. The room was dusty and unclean. 4. When we spoke to reception, and told them of our intention to leave because of the issues, they couldn’t care less. They told us to calll Expedia. 5. We went to reception and eventually spoke to another woman. She argued with us about the cleanliness of the room for 15mins and the shockingly bad checkin process. We were eventually offered an upgrade at our cost ($1,800) but eventually complimentary. 6. The new room was unclean. There was a chip on the floor, dirt on bed, towels weren’t folded properly, tissue box still closed, dirty balcony with dried lettuce leaves, bird poo everywhere, dust on almost every surface. We showed the guy who took us to the room. He shrugged his shoulders and said some people will love this hotel and others will have the worst experience. Seriously? He told us he would get the cleaner, this never happened. When we phoned reception again they told us to enjoy our stay

2/10 Poor

This hotel is very dated and needs updating other than rooms that have been other than air con and pillows.. The common areas are really dirty and unpleasant. Pool furniture badly ripped and stained. Filth on floor that is still there days later. Rooms were upgraded as air con was terrible in first rooms. Noisy still in suites, meaning impossible to sleep with it on. The pillows need throwing away. It is unacceptable how dirty the pool in particular was, though dirt in other areas remained too. Staff seem oblivious.

I have stayed at this property many times over the years. I think that now all the common areas are looking very dated and worn and that all the furnishings in the common areas should be replaced and updated.
