I spent the entire day sick in bed. Ugh! Not how I imagined spending my time in Jerusalem. But I suppose these things happen. In fact, I’m surprised they don’t happen more often. Traveling has got to be one of the easiest ways to pick up a bug or virus. So, I missed a day exploring the city and rested up in my hotel. But it’s not a bad hotel to be stuck in!
I’m staying at the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem. Located in Western Jerusalem, this five-star hotel offers modern, luxury accommodations and breathtaking views of the ancient walls of the Old City. The decor is grand – from the vast marble lobby to the sweeping staircases and snaking hallways. The hotel has 384 suites and guestrooms and a variety of restaurants to choose from, including: Scala, The Seasons (pictured above), Yakimonotoo and the Lobby & Terrace restaurant, which offers great views during both day and night. Food is also served poolside.
My room is a generous size and the bed is super-comfortable. (Thank goodness since I spent all day in it today!) The walls are a bit thin, making noise from the hallway and rooms next door a bit of a problem but other than that, you’ll find everything you need here. Most importantly (for me, anyway!), you can get wireless Internet for 24 hours for 65 scheckels (that’s about $18CDN or $15USD).
There’s shopping nearby and a number of restaurants within walking distance. It’ll take you less than 10 minutes to walk to the Old City from here, making this hotel perfectly situated for most things you’ll probably want to do.
