Buffalo City Real Home from Home
Our room was not sea-facing, but wow, we had been upgraded to a suite and who can complain about that... All was well and comfortable. Oh yes! credit must be given to the room service received. The meals we had at the hotel were all delivered to the room and they were delicious, no complaint in that angle. This is a jolly good couples or friends' place. The establishment is in an oldish area of town, however, there was no negative incidence nor shady characters hanging around to make us feel unsafe. It is also situated about seven minutes' walk from the beach, which is ideal for the little exercise of a stroll. In case one needed a ride, metered taxis were readily at hand for a very nominal fee. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here.

Hi.I booked at your hotel but due to power failure I was unable to see your rooms. It was a tiring 8 hour drive and I couldn't stay there and the manager booked us into Premier Hotel on the beach front. I really truly appreciate and thank the manager for moving us as we did have a good rest that afternoon. This trip was really memorable, thanks to the management and staff of Premier Hotel King David. NB. I had an excellent stay at Premier Hotel at the Beach front. Thank you guys. Excellent staff.
