This is my second visit to Villa Kennedy. My family stayed there two years ago while on holiday and we recently spent two nights upon our arrival back in Europe. The Villa Kennedy is a great hotel and the service and rooms are superb. The hotel definitely rates a five stars.
From the moment you arrive you are surrounded with understated elegance and service. The check-in is fast and friendly to include a welcome pacakge for both of our kids -- nice touch. Additionally, the front desk staff walk you to your room and ensure that you are comfortable with the technology and features of the room. Again, a simple touch but one that is much appreciated -- especially when you are tired an jet lagged.
The rooms are spacious and well laid out. We had two connecting rooms -- a junior suite to a room with two double size beds. The rooms are extremely comfortable, clean and quiet which allow for a deep sleep as one tries to recover from international travel. The bathrooms are spacious with a separare bath and walk-in shower. I do wish they had two sinks but other than that, the rooms are great and what you would expect from a five star hotel.
The highlight of our trip though has to be Mo down in the JFK bar and terrace area. My family visited the terrace and bar on two separate occasions and Mo did a great job of welcoming us and taking care of our needs. He was genuinely friendly and personified what a great hotel should deliver to the guest. Mo is a star and made our visit special.
As for location, Villa Kennedy is in Sachsenhausen which is a quiet suburb of Frankfurt. It is located two blocks from the river Main and Museum row. Old town and city center are about a 15 minute walk from the hotel along the river --- be sure to take the second foot bridge and not the first. The second will take you to the old town while the first will drop you close to the red ligth district -- something most parents would want to avoid -- especially with children.
Bottom line, the Villa Kennedy is a great hotel that caters to business people and families. They really do live up to their motto of simple luxury. My family looks forward to our next stay.
