Villa Kennedy, a Rocco Forte Hotel, is located on Kennedyallee, just off the south bank of the River Main. The luxury hotel is built around the existing Villa Speyer, which was constructed in 1901 and today provides a unique retreat from the bustle of the financial metropolis. The hotel has 163 bedrooms, including 36 suites, and also comprises Villa Kennedy's colonnaded Italian restaurant Gusto, the JFK bar as well as the 1000 sqm spa area. Business clients can benefit from seven meeting rooms, five of which inter-connect, for groups of 6 to 45 people. There is also a 330-sqm ballroom with its own entrance and a grand lobby. The ballroom can accommodate up to 330 persons and can be divided into two rooms. Two historical rooms provide the perfect venue for special occasions. All rooms have natural daylight and are equipped with the latest technology. Private parking is also available on site. Close to the hotel is Frankfurt's residential area, Sachsenhausen, with its bustling bars and restaurants. Furthermore Frankfurt's many museums are easily accessible. The Villa Kennedy is just a few minutes from Frankfurt's main train station and approximately 15 minutes from Frankfurt Airport.

Our long awaited second stay was wonderful, mostly due to Nadine at Reception who had an uncanny ability to understand what we really wanted. It was Room 171, renovated and perfect. For six glorious days every single staff member amazed us, helpful, efficient and pleasant. Two happy people wanting more Rocco!

This hotel used to be wonderful once! By now the rooms (at least the one i stayed in last time) are old and dirty! Above all they are incredible loud with noise coming from the ventilation system. I checked in at midnight and asked for the hotel to ensure that the noise is going down as i had to leave again at 0600. Nothing. Nada. Beside a quite arrogant receptionist. Anyway. Its a shame. Carpet dirty. Sofa dirty and bathroom floor really unclean. Shameful to see a former top property go down that route. After many years as loyal guests - Goodbye Rocco Forte

Dear MAGzrh, Allow me to thank you for sharing your experience with us. We regret that we did not meet your expectations during your recent stay, especially because of our room product and the behaviour of our staff. We have discussed your comments with our housekeeping and our technical department. It is particularly unfortunate that we did not seem to be able to remedy the situation at this point. We are currently planning extensive renovation measures and we would be delighted to welcoming you again at the Villa Kennedy in future. With best wishes, Timo Dreissigacker Head Concierge

The staff here go above and beyond. Particularly Alexandra and her male accomplice at the reception who’s name escapes me. They were polite and willing to really help make our stay the best it could be. Jule the waitress ensured we enjoyed our breakfast experience and always went out of her way to make our experience a pleasant one. She was always infectiously happy which was extremely well received. The spa unfortunately wasn’t accessible which was a big disappointment for myself and my wife as we booked the hotel specifically for this experience. This is an error on behalf of Booking.com as we weren’t alerted to this issue and Florian the GM ensured we were sufficiently compensated for the inconvenience. The standard bedroom was lovely with a view over the internal courtyard. The beds were large and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with an amazing power shower and decent bath. Upon departure we met Mahmood Ali who collected our bags with a sunny demeanour. He was extremely friendly and positive and added real value to our impression of the hotel before we left. We’ll be back and hopefully next time we’ll be able to enjoy the spa facilities.

I’ve never stayed in a hotel, which is so welcoming to children! Most staff members are very kind and help wherever they can. Excellent breakfast and nice bar with very good drinks. The inner courtyard is certainly a gem. On a minor note, I’m not so happy that the Italian restaurant was replaced by a Japanese restaurant - I understand that many customers like it, but probably not all, including the very little ones. Serving only sushi on some days a week in the entire hotel (including room service) does not seem to be the best option for me.

Truly enjoyed my stay here at the Villa Kennedy Rocco Forte, despite the difficult times, during the Covid 1984 regime. Service was excellent. Food quality too. Great atmosphere. An oasis, especially the area in the inner patio. Recommended!
