Hit the spot!
From the minute we arrived at the hotel we knew we had made exactly the right decision for the type of holiday we were looking for i.e. a comfortable kosher break in a beautiful capital city with lots to see and do.
The reception staff (especially Noam Behar) were extremely helpful and informative, providing us with lots of information about the hotel’s services and excursions.
The deluxe room was just the right size, nicely decorated and the beds were extremely comfortable. Equipped with kettle, coffee machine, biscuits,a platter of fruit and Leonidas chocolates. There was also a mini bar, safe, dressing gown and slippers.
The bathroom was also spacious with a huge walk in shower and luxurious products.
Breakfast was a feast for the eyes -a delicious buffet consisting of hot and cold delicacies. The food was being replaced constantly and the staff did an incredible job seating a very big party of lively female guests. Consequently the hotel was full and the atmosphere indeed Israeli.
There was also a spa offering a varied menu of massages and a pool with separate male, female and mixed swimming times!
There is a smallish milky restaurant in the lobby with the option of ordering food directly to your room.
Dinner consists of another colourful (this time meaty) buffet but, to be honest, we sampled the menu each evening at one of the numerous kosher restaurants in the Jewish area of Prague (there are about 5 or 6!)
All in all I would highly recommend staying at the King David if you are looking to maximise the appeal of a kosher hotel in a splendid European capital.

Nice hotel about a 15 minute walk to the old town.
We spent 3 nights at the King David in Prague. We are not Jewish and don't keep kosher, but we did live in Israel for 4 years so this was a nice way to refresh our memories and enjoy the weekend. The staff at the front desk were terrific and helpful. They even printed out some paperwork I needed, and were very happy to do it. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The interior could use a little bit of a facelift. The breakfast was vast and included everything from eggs to salads, fruits, cereals, and veggies, even yummy humus. Getting a cup of cappuccino was a problem sometimes, but they did have a carafe off black coffee on a burner. The train station is very close by, and even though the hotel was on a very main street, it was not noisy at all when trying to sleep.

What a Find
One does not expect much from a kosher hotel outside of the best ones in Israel so this was a real surprise. Well situated and recently refurbished the exec rooms are spacious and well fitted out. Comfortable beds. Coffee making equipment. Bottle of water and biscuits and chocolates every day. Dinner is excellent with a great buffet choice. Breakfasts Israeli. Not my cup of tea as I just like decent cereal but huge choice and fresh fruit excellent. Lovely staff too. If u eat kosher and want to visit the beautiful city of Prague this is for u

Good location comfy room
Stayed three nights and had a good experience. Very short walk from main train station. About half hour from airport where Uber works well. Great breakfast. Only disappointment was the coffee; instant only on sabbath/saturday and maybe espresso if you are lucky on other days. Not all that bad really.

Room was clean. Bathroom big and convenient. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Even change money without extra fees. Price was good too. Dont be put off because it is kosher. A really good place to be in prague as it is an easy walk to historic city center.

Perfect Kosher Hotel
We (2 grandparents with 4 grandchildren) arrived late night and were picked up at the airport by the hotel's limo (prearranged). The rooms were very spacious and soundproofed from the busy street. Great complimentary coffee machine and bottled water in the room. The food served for breakfast and dinner was excellent with great variety, Kosher and we ate in their large Succah and they have a Synagogue. We took day passes in the train station across the road and had easy access to the zoo and the old city and it's a short walking distance to the shopping mall. We had late check out for a modest fee and children under 12 get to use the pool for free (jacuzzi photo attached). I enjoyed a great massage in the spa as well. The staff were always very helpful.

Excellent service and very tasty food
We informed the hotel in advance of an early arrival, and when we arrived the room was already ready. We had a half-board deal, the food was superb. It is a pleasure to stay in a kosher place that allows both breakfast and dinner. On the days when we went on long trips we bought delicious sandwiches from the hotel.
The hotel enabled us to leave on Saturday night, making it easier for us on the last day of our stay.
The room we had was small but clean and tidy. It contained all the things required, including an umbrella for rainy days and a coffee machine.

To our surprise, we found that the workers spoke fluent Hebrew and Russian.

I can honestly say, that this pretentious hotel, is one of the most pathetically run hotels I have ever visited.

The receptionist - that met me on arrival - should have retired 10 years ago. She was uninspired, tired and did not articulate any form of positivism. I really got the feeling that she would prefer to be left alone and that I was disturbing her.

I quickly got into a discussion with her about Hotels.com, which I had booked the room through. The search criteria I used was private parking…… She told me that I should book through the hotel website instead, and that I had misunderstood everything. She then called for the manager – whome also looked as if he was suffering from a lifelong depression. He explained to me, that any mistake or misinformation from hotels.com was not his or the hotels problem…… I do not need to explain myself as to whose problem it is if there is a problem with the booking…… I have never heard such nonsense before….

Next day we went for breakfast – a girl checking the room numbers was the first that met us…. She did not know of the concept service, and she could hardly open her mouth when she whispered “sit down”……. We sat down –but quickly had to get up and find a babychair ourselves…. We then waited – but nothing happened….. I must point out, that there was quite a bit of staff on duty that morning – however they did not pay any attention to us…. At last I had to adress one of the staff and ask if it was possible to get a cup of coffee….. She looked surprised but I got a cup of coffe eventually…..

The breakfast buffet was generally very poor and the breakfast saloon was dirty and stuffy – almost claustrophic….

Suddenly a waiter appeared at our table with two plates of fried eggs – “did you order fried eggs?”…. this time we were the surprised ones – we had never been introduced to the possibility of having egg´s to order, as nobody bothered to present us with any information…. This was just so unprofessional that you could only wonder how they can still be in business, let alone were they bought the 5 stars that they claim they operate under………

The shower head was not working, the tv flickered, and there was a ghastly smell in the room.

So I can only advice anyone who is considering visiting this “hotel”, to think twice…

Many 3 and 4 star hotels are well preferable over this amateur factory…

Restaurant service is lacking
Nice building and well kept, large rooms with all commodities, TV, Wi-Fi, minibar, coffee machine, spacious bathroom, hairdryer. At the lobby desk, a very kind lady fluent both in English and Hebrew, takes care of all guests' needs.
So far so good.
As for service, room service is efficient. Restaurant service less, since the hotel gets
reservations for guests not staying in the hotel, there is not enough space at the dining
room. Therefore, the dining room staff just want you to eat quickly and leave in order to make room for the next guest. The waiters just stand and look at you while you eat, and if you leave your plate unattended for one minute, let’s say you go to take something else from the bar, a waiter takes away your plate and cutlery. Then, you can get another plate but not any cutlery, so you just have to leave.
For people who are Shomer Shabbat (shabbat observer), there is an additional problem. Initially, when we booked the hotel for shabbat stay, we were told there are 3 shabbat meals included in the price. However, Shabbat meals are not scheduled to serve religious people's needs. After the morning prayer, we got a dairy breakfast (not even an option for soy milk) which was meant as the second meal, but there was no wine or grape juice offered. Only a few tables had wine, and they made the kiddush for everyone. Then, lunch was served between 2:00pm to 4:00pm as supposedly a seuda shlishit. At 3:00pm we went to eat and were told that, sorry, but they have no place to sit us. If we want, we needed to wait in the lobby (two floors up) for at least 15 minutes and maybe more. To avoid waiting (quite a few others were waiting before us) each of us were given a small takeout container to put what we want from the bar and eat in our room. The container was incredibly small (see attached picture), to include salads, fish, meat, potatoes and whatever else. No space for cake and bread and no cold beverage. In addition, coffee cannot be taken to rooms, and it is forbidden to take any real plate/glass outside the restaurant.
Shabbat ended at 10:00pm. From 3:30pm and on, no other food was available. No cake, no coffee, no tea. Absolutely nothing for 6 hours. After shabbat ended, the lobby bar opened and everybody were able to order what they like BUT had to pay extra!! for it.
Hotel manager/s did not care and did not offer any solutions for their religious guests. If they would, staying there may be more pleasant.

Prague Visit
Stayed with my boyfriend in July and received a free upgrade to a deluxe room. The bed was very comfortable, nice and soft. The breakfast was quite good even though it's vegetarian due to the hotel being Kosher. The location is convenient, about 15 mins from the city centre. There are also lots of Uber's around if you don't want to walk or take public transport.

I also got a massage and went for a swim in the spa. The massage was very good, and the masseuse had my relaxation as a priority during the treatment. The pool is a little underwhelming but the highlight would be the whirlpool and the steam room. The steam room has blue lights on the ceiling that looked like stars, which was a nice touch.

The staff were all very nice even though some staff were not good at speaking English.

Overall, a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Мы провели замечательный шабат в гостинице Кинг Дэвид в Праге...

Сама гостиница очень красиво и стильно оформлена, шикарные лампы, ковры, картины. Комната соответсвует пяти звездам. Огромная мягкая кровать, большой шкаф, диванчик, все мелочи которые только могут понадобиться, современная ванная комната. Все очень комфортно и ориентировано на максимальное удобство для посетителей. А в кроватки для малыша нас ждал даже небольшой подарочек!

Персонал говорит на английском, иврите и русском. Очень приветливые и всегда готовы помочь, в том числе и со всем что касалось малыша.

Трапезы были на самом высоком уровне. Огромное количество салатов, несколько видов рыбы, мясо, курица, дессерты, тортики, пирожные, фрукты, соки и даже манная каша :) Машгиах живет в гостинице.

Больше всего мне было приятно, что в гостинице есть абсолютно все для того, чтобы провести кошерный шаббат. Шабатний лифт, шабатний чайник и лампа в комнате, механический ключ.

Спа: кардио тренажеры, влажная сауна и бассейн. Раздельные часы для мужчин и женщин. Мне вообще очень повезло, я была одна на весь спа :)

В общем, впечатление у меня лично и у моего мужа самые позитивные. Я могу искренне порекомендовать Кинг Дэвид.

Best getaway! We stayed at the King David for 5 nights and will definitely return.
Some highlights:

- Food: the kosher food is delicious (scrumptious breakfast, lobby cafe with the most delicious pizza and meaty dining for dinner) . the lobby cafe is open until 22:00 which was great as we got to eat after we got back from the Opera.
At breakfast you can order sandwiches to be packed for lunch for only 5€.

- Rooms: the room was newly renovated, comfortable beds, very nice and strong shower room.

- Spa: the steamroom was the perfec relaxation after a long day of walking. With the most cozy lounge to relax in, great place to unwind.

- The hotel is beautiful! It’s old original features add so much charm to this European experience.

This hotel never disappoints. We stayed for a week, with half-board. For the price, we got great value! The food was varied, plentiful, fresh, and tasty. We felt very welcomed when we received a personal cake to our room for the occasion of our anniversary with a beautiful card from the hotel management.
The staff was very helpful, especially when we had a medical emergency to deal with. The room and the amenities were delightful. Were stayed in the Deluxe room. It was nice and new, spacious and pleasant. Everything we needed was provided promptly. The location was comfortable - a short walk from the old city square and the Palladium shopping center as well as other attractions. It was a perfect Prague experience!

Batroom heater not working because of maintenance, so bathroom is chilly. Clima control can't be turned off so the room temperature was too cold.
Room is large enough to be spacious and it have ironing equipment. Very nice bathroom with modern large shower cabinet. Coffee maker plus hot water maker, both good quality.

Location just 7 minutes walk from main train station if you arrive by train there is no point of getting a taxi as the hotel is just across the park from the station
Great rooms and probably most comfortable beds
Room size - spacious rooms
Family friendly rooms - the one with courtyard view
Breakfast Was great, variety of traditional Jewish and middle eastern dishes, there was no coffee machine tho only instant coffee which is a huge minus.
SPA is not working, there was always a problem with pool - very cold, impossible to heat, the reception was absent for 2 days, saunas were turned off, cold rooms, the whole spa complex was just turned off and nobody was able to turn on heating there so people could visit the facilities. Massage impossible to book because there was no receptionist, and no other spa staff to help. The general reception desk had no idea how to operate spa hence there was no assistance. Vicious circle.
Staff offered to visit spa at sister hotel but what’s the point if we chose this hotel mainly because it had spa. For separate payment of course.
The staff is not helpful
Service is bad
Customer orientation absent.

If I could, I would give 4,5 stars for my rating.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is worth 5*, it was perfect. The rooms are comfortable and with bath. The location is also good, it is only 10-15 minutes walk from the Old town square.
The only thing I didn't like, was the massage. We tried out different type of massages and we think the girl who did it, didn't follow the instructions well and missed some parts.
Although we spent a good weekend here.

I found the staff super helpful and really great people. The Hotel facilities are really good and the chef is an amazing cook. One small downside is the stairs from the street level to reception. If you are like me and have a buggy for your child it's not the best having to carry it up and down every time.
Management.... get a lift there so it's more young family friendly.
Loved my stay there overall.
