Reviewed May 29, 2012

Located close enough to walk to the city center, yet far enough away to be peaceful, we found the Villa Kennedy to be an ideal location. Two blocks from the riverside walk and museums, a 15 minute walk to the city centre, and only 10 minutes to shopping and restaurants of Sachenhausen and Schweizer Platz. The proximity to the airport is also very convenient....just 15 minutes, and totally avoid center of city congestion.

The staff of the hotel were great as well...excellent service and particularly kind to our 22-month old daughter. We thought they did a great job balancing the needs of busy business travelers with the needs of a family with small children. The crib was set up in our room as we requested, and they even left a child's size robe and slippers in the bathroom with a nice children's toiletry set as well. The staff were always accommodating and generous.

The spa was also well integrated into the hotel, clean, peaceful and relaxing. Unlike many hotels that choose to outsource the spa, Villa Kennedy's spa felt very much like part of the hotel.

Well done, and thanks to all at Villa Kennedy for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Our room faced the side street, but was still very quiet with high quality, double paned windows. T...

Villa Kennedy is a beatiful villa-style hotel on KennedyAllee on the south side of the Main river in Frankfurt, very convenient to the airport and to center city. It is a luxurious hotel in every respect, with a highly professional staff, nicely appointed, clean rooms, a spa (that we did not have a chance to try) and other facilities (pool, banquet and meeting rooms, business center, etc.). The restaurant extends into a lovely courtyard where it is a pleasure to have a meal at any time of day (weather permitting, of course). The breakfast buffet is very good, similar to other luxury hotels in Germany, and the food we ate at lunch and in the bar for dinner was excellent, though you must be prepared for small portions and gourmet preparation. This hotel has the feel of luxury throughout, a very nice place to stay. Our group of 5 occupied 2 junior suites and a deluxe King, all of them very nice and spacious rooms with all the amenities you would expect from a 5-start hotel. It is expensive, but well worth the money. We definitely would stay here again on another visit.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard offer the best views.

We travel to the finest hotels in the world. We were pleasantly surprised about everything at this hotel. First, it is reasonably close to the airport. We paid 315 Euros for a one bedroom suite, which included an 85 Euro credit for food and beverage. The room is extremely competent. The bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. Also, you could adjust the temp by 1/2 degree increments. So, the hotel met the first rule- a good night's sleep.The shower was large and powerful and the amenities were first class. The sitting room was large and there was a powder room. There is a garage on site. The restaurant has Italian food. The cuisine was a little disappointing as we were hoping for German food. It would be deemed an average restaurant in America. Nothing special. However, there was nice ambience sitting outside. The bar is pleasant and there is a spa and workout room. Breakfast was included and was the traditional buffet with cheeses, bread, salamis, smoked salmon etc. All in all, it was an excellent value and a very competent hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard have a rustic and peaceful view.

Dear Guest

It has been a pleasure to read your comment about your stay at the Villa Kennedy. Thank you very much for your time.

Although we could not convince you of our Chef´s Italian cuisine we are more than happy that you enjoyed a pleasant stay with us. Our Sicilian Chef Dario Cammarata is passionate for traditional Italian food. The German touch can be tried with the Club Sandwich “Frankfurt Style” with original Frankfurt Green sauce.

We are very much looking forward to your next stay with us and to convince you for a second try of Dario´s way of cooking.

If you don't want a crummy airport hotel and want to be close to the airport this is just for you. Location is between the airport and the city centre. It is off a busy road but don't be fooled. Once inside you would never know it. Rooms clean but tv is very small not the usual big flat screens. Court yard is nice to sit in summer. The hotel and facilities are around the court yard so the walk is in a big square. Breakfast is not sumptuous but adequate and service is prim and proper in an efficient German manner. The interior is not fussy on the point of being minimilist. So if you want city centre the steigenburger is very nice but if you want something a bit more modern and want to shoot off to the airport this is the place for you.

Nearly everything is perfect in this discrete and luxury hotel situated a bit outside of the city center of Frankfurt. Rooms are very classical, bathrooms are spacious and modern and the night is calm and you awake well rested and peaceful. There is only one thing missing: The little extra that makes it an exceptional stay, the touch that surprises you in the end.

Room Tip: Up in the forth floor, rooms are very quiet. In the summer, lower rooms to the courtyard can be loud...

I stayed at the hotel three times in the last 12 months, although the hotel is out of place and need a little renovation but I like it and it is becoming like a second home to me in Frankfurt.
The staff is wonderful form the first greeting of the doorman.

One time I left the hotel for more than 12 hours and accidentally left the safe box open with jewelery and cash inside when I came back nothing was touched, one trip I ask the concierge to arrange my travels which was combination of trains and flight he asked me politely to sit in the lobby and he spent more than hour on the phone doing it, I ask him if I need to book cab next day early morning he said he will arrange for me the hotel Limo free of charge.

I liked something form there amenities they were so helpful to order it and sent it to me home.

The hotel is great, great and it always my first choice when traveling to frankfurt.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days and had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful, nothing you asked was too much. Without a doubt the best hotel I've ever stayed at. Can't wait for my next trip to Frankfurt so that I can stay at this hotel again.
