“5*+ amazing...luxurious”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Villa Kennedy is the best place in Frankfurt to stay if you are not on a budget. Modern rooms, attention to detail and a friendly and dedicated service team which pampers you. I loved the bathroom as well as the amenities available. The common rooms - are inviting and well decorated...overall something to be pampered!!

My sixth stay at Villa Kennedy and all I can say is WOW! This property is everything that a 5 Star Hotel should be. Understated elegance, perfect location and a top notch staff who run the hotel with flawless grace. You simply cannot do better in Frankfurt, or for that matter most places on the planet.
You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose an inner courtyard room on the first floor for a fantastic view and patio.

The hotel is nice and hip but the location is not as good as in other of the top hotels. Starting with the entry, which I missed twice driving by. But it's located "across the river", to get to the walking zone would take like 40 minutes by foot or 15 by taxi.
For my taste, the breakfast was too scarce (on the room), for example I had ordered blueberry pancakes and expected German pancakes with blueberries and received three little discs "american style"....
Check-in and -out were very quick and the guys of the bellservice were really nice and helpful.
If you don't want to do anything, like leave the property, a good choice. If you like to stroll the walking zone, not the hotel to stay.

Dear traveler,

Thank you so much for choosing the Villa Kennedy for your stay in Frankfurt and for taking the time of sharing you experience.

Your comments are very much appreciated and I am glad about your kind words regarding our front of house staff. It will be a pleasure to share those words with my team.

Regarding our location, we have a very advantageous location to connect within 10 minutes with the airport and as well the town centre is approachable with public transport or within a short taxi ride. Lots of our guests enjoy the lovely walk from the hotel to the city alongside the river. I am sorry, that in your case you did not feel comfortable at all due to our distance to the city center.

It would be a pleasure to welcome you back at Villa Kennedy and I really do hope that your overall impression still animates you to return. Please feel free to contact me at any time, if I can be of assistance.

Warmest regards,

Georg Plesser

My second stay. Excellent service. Spotless rooms. Near the airport and center. They know your name which is a good touch. It's expensive, but well worth it. Did not eat there, looked good, smelled great - no time.

The experience at Villa Kennedy hotel was better than expected! The moment me and my partner checked in we were welcomed by friendly staff and had our bags taken out of the taxi and kept until we were ready to receive them. We managed to check in early and our room was spectacular, they provided soaps, shampoo's and other bathroom essentials, and had a coffee machine with a selection of coffees. From this location it was easy to get around Frankfurt, the train station was about a 5 minute walk down the road and the recommended food district was only a 20 minute walk away. Breakfast was INCREDIBLE, the choice was huge and the waiters were very friendly and quick to serve and clear our table. Would definitely go again, the only flaw was the fact the internet was 20 euros a day unless you went through the official website, I believe for the amount we were paying and in a 5* hotel that it would be available to all customers.

Room Tip: We stayed in a garden view deluxe suite which was a great size and the view was beautiful!

The experience at the Villa Rocco Kennedy exceeded my expectations from the moment we checked in. My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary with a six day tour of Germany, which we planned ourselves using travel guides and reviews. The Villa Kennedy was highly recommended by every review and guide we referenced. But not one of them mentioned Timo Dreissigacker, the incredible Head Concierge at the Kennedy that is worth his weight in gold. He helped us finalize our plans for our two days in Frankfurt, making our dinner reservations and getting us massage appointments at the hotel's wonderful spa. He patiently drew maps to help us navigate our rented Mercedes through Frankfurt, and even took the time to help us schedule two day trips to the enchanting nearby Heidelberg Castle and Rudesheim (a charming small town on the Rhine). We might not have elected to hire a professional tour guide, but with Timo helping us make our plans, we sure felt like we had a private tour director during our two days at the Villa Kennedy. This hotel might be a little pricier than some others, but certainly was the best money we spent. The decor is interesting and tasteful, the suites are luxurious without being showy, and the service exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: Book a suite if your traveling with your loved one, they are so romantic and comfortable, definitely...

I spent about 120 nights per year in hotels and this one is my favourite in Europe.

It is an oasis in the middle of a very frenzy and loud town.

Service is exceptional, restaurant is good, sometimes a bit salty.

One of the best Aperol Spritz around.

Go there during the summer to enjoy the patio.

Room Tip: get a corner room at the second floor overviewing the patio.
