“Very comfortable and calm.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Very comfortable and calm.

This hotel is located about a 15 minutes walk from the main train station, on the south side of the river which also makes it very convenient from or to the airport. It is quite possible to walk to the old town and the Art Galleries, which are located together along the south side river bank or 5 minutes in a taxi. The old town is not that interesting but is a short walk to the main shopping street.
The hotel is very quiet despite its location near a road junction. Service was without fault, the concierge extremely and more importantly genuinely helpful. We had a junior suite which was very nice. The Wi-Fi is free, although there is a sign indicating it is EUR 20 per day. The Restaurant was fine and the food in the bar is very good but could do with more light. An excellent place to stay and probably the best hotel in Frankfurt.

About a mile from the main train station, not so close to the city centre / old town, but a quiet and luxurious place to stay, for a tourist or business purpose.

Our room was an Executive King, with both a sitting area and a desk, both exceptionally comfortable.

Room service meal was brought up on a special table, beautifully presented. Quality of the food was excellent.

A snack in the JFK bar was also excellent in quality and quantity. Try the smoked salmon and freshly squeezed orange juice.

The swimming pool is quite large and very welcoming in decor. There is a steam room, sauna and jacuzzi, as well as an area to relax afterwards and have a drink or fruit.

Staff were welcoming and highly attentive

Just completed another stay at Villa Kennedy. This property never fails to impress and amaze me. The facility is pure understated German luxury in a fantastic setting. However, the staff are the true stars here. They are unfailingly polite, gracious and warm. The word "no" is not in their vocabulary.
I left my cell phone at the hotel and it was sent overnight delivery back to the U.S. for me.
Thank you Romina, Johanna, George and Stig for another memorable stay. You are truly a fine group of people and I appreciate the genuine hospitality.

Room Tip: Choose an inner courtyard room. First floor rooms have balconies.

I have stayed at the Villa Kenndey now in Frankfurt for some four years whilst attending the Musik Messe some two miles up the road. I have been attending this trade show for the best part of 20 years and found the majority of Frankfurt hotels to be either ludricously expensive or basic at best. Villa Kennedy bucks the norm. You glide in - I normally come by train from London and it takes 10 minutes to walk. However, it's slightly south of the river, so it's easy to get to from the Flughafen. You glide in and you glide out. The staff are extremely accommodating and can't do enough. The breakfasts are the best I have encountered around the world and the althought meals / drinks may be pricey there, you get what you pay for. The rooms are quiet and relaxing. Good size, great bathroom, fruits, waters....nothing seems to be missing. There is an internet charge of €20 per 24 hours which is a bit much these days, but other than that....there's no need to look elsewhere whether you're on business or pleasure to Frankfurt. If you're there for the Messe, the tram takes 10 minutes, for which the stop is close by.

We spent at this hotel only one night in April 2013, but anyway were very satisfied with it.

We had a standard room which is very big, has spacious working and didning areas and a very comfy bed.

The staff was polite and extermely helpful. We were allowed to do late check-out for free.

Dinner that we had at our room was delicious. Drinks at the bar were also great, and the best part of the evening was the dj (it was Friday night), who played the exact songs you would want to hear at a stylish bar.

We also used sauna and the pool, which was quite big and beautiful.

I cannot comment on the location if this hotel, since we had a car and did't use public transport to get to city center.

Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.

On the basis on another Tripadvisor review by a family we booked in to Villa Kennedy with our two young boys. This is a very nice hotel and obviously popular with the business crowd yet the staff managed to make us feel very welcome alongside all the suits! When we rang to book they had asked the kid's names and there were personalised treasure hunt packs waiting for them on arrival. They also arranged a 'warm milk and cookie' turn down service which deeply impressed the boys! We stayed in a very nice junior suite, breakfast had a good spread and the hotel as a whole looks lovely. Also the location was a good starting point for a walk along the river. We would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone passing through Frankfurt!

Stayed here on business and enjoyed it very much. The staff was super helpful and catered to my every need. The bed was really comfortable and the entertainment center was the best of any hotel I have stayed in. It has hookups for HDMI or VGA and USB if you want to movies from your hard drive or plug something to charge. The internet is REALLY fast. The Conciege/Bellhops were so knowledgable and helpful with luggage and storage. It is close to transit and a great Korean BBQ restaurant. Would love to stay here again.
