“Charming Luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Have been there for 5 days for a business conference and was impressed: great service, great food and public areas. The room was not very big, but completely sufficient, nicely looking into the beautifull inner courtyard. The concierge service was extremely friendly and supportive. The total atmosphere is taking friendly care of the high level, not in the more relaxed style of 5 star hotels in other regions of the world, but on a luxury level.

A beautifully designed hotel, just 10 mins by tram from the centre of Frankfurt, or a leisurely 25 mins walk.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and are quiet and relaxing. There was no desk lamp provided, which in the 4th floor attic rooms made them quite dark when trying to work. The bathrooms are delightfully with full bath and shower, REN toiletries and underfloor heathing, which was a nice touch. A bottle of sparkling and one of still water was placed by the bed, but no indication given that this was complimentary.

The spa, swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam and sauna area are beautiful and well worth spending time in.

The service was often very slow in the bar and restaurant - and it was not even that busy. It took 60 mins to receive our starter course and then another 60 mins to receive our main courses. This seemed to be happening to everyone, so clearly there were issues in the kitchen. This let down the hotel a great deal. And 34 euros for breakfast and 20 euros per day for internet access is nothing short of a rip off.

The best thing about the hotel : the fantastic concierge, for whom nothing was too much trouble, and who knew the best places to eat in the city. He is an asset to the hotel

If you can get a great deal on the price, then stay - but eat out !

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms are gloomy and under the eaves - ask for one on floors 2 or 3 , facing outside (not...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

We stayed here in april 2012 with my wife as part of our european tour, and it was perfect from our arrival until our departure. After an 11 hour flight from bkk, we landed at 7am and checked into the hotel at around 8am. By surprise our room was ready! The front desk lady also accompanied us to the room showing us the room. WHat a service!.

The design of the hotel was luxurious and simple, and practical. The room was designed differently from other hotels, which made it feel like we were in an luxurious apartment and not a hotel.

The food was excellent. We had breakfast at the hotel and ordered room service for lunch. The food quality was very high.

Also it was raining one night, and we were going to the restaurant. The guy at the concierge offered to drive us with the hotel car to the restaurant, without charge. So unexpected that they would do this for free!

We didn't try the spa, but the pool, gym area and spa area looked beautiful.

Overall, this is one of the best hotel we have stayed at. The service and food was excellent. The design was beautiful. The Sleep quality was outstanding.

Location is not bad. Very close to the museums (5mins walk), and very close to the river for those that like to have romantic walks by the river. It's around 25 to 35 minutes walk to the Zeil shopping area (we are slow walkers), and around 25 mins walk to the town square.

One thing i would suggest they do to improve is to give free internet to the guests.

This hotel its incredible, its a really nice Villa and its really close to the centre of the city ( 10 min walk). The rooms are very comfortable, and nicely decorated. The service its probably the best thing of the hotel, every single employee in the hotel was really really nice and helpful. The breakfast its expensive but worths trying it at least one day, you can enjoy it all morning. Also has a nice spa for relaxing.

I really recomend this hotel.

Upon arriving at Hotel Villa Kennedy we were greeted with a very warm welcome, the staff at reception were very attentive and made us feel very welcome. Hotel Villa Kennedy is without doubt a beautiful hotel with fabulous creative features of ‘old meets new’. Our room was very spacious and also beautifully decorated and very quiet as it overlooked the courtyard/garden. The hotel also has a spa facilities with indoor pool and Jacuzzi/sauna/steam room which was very clean and definitely relaxing. We had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and again the staff couldn’t do enough for you! The bar staff were also fantastic! All in all this hotel is absolute luxury and will be looking forward to staying there again in the future!! Thank you Villa Kennedy for a very enjoyable stay!!
