King Solomon Review

The centerpiece of the marble-floored lobby at the King Solomon is a huge, spherical sculpture of Jerusalem by renowned sculptor Frank Meisler. A split-level atrium reveals shops half a floor down and the dining room a floor below that. Guest rooms are larger than most in the area, and those on the 6th floor and higher have stunning views of the Old City. The decor is attractive, with dark-wood furnishings, translucent glass tabletops, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The small pool on the 4th floor offers a stunning view of southeast Jerusalem. The place is popular with a religious clientele, especially on Friday, Saturday, and Jewish holidays. During Passover and Sukkot, room rates soar.

    Terrible Experience

    Avoid this hotel (at least until management changes). Despite a good location and nice rooms, the management of this hotel ruined our stay. We were treated with rudeness, indifference and extreme arrogance. We were overcharged. We will never go back to this hotel. If location and quality are a priority, I would spend a little more and go elsewhere.
