We stayed overnight at the Villa Kennedy returning from a Mediterrean cruise. The service at the hotel, including the spa and restaurant was impeccable. The meal at the hotel restaurant, Gusto, rivaled any meal we had during our cruise. In fact we agreed it was the best meal of our entire trip. The Villa Kennedy is a beautiful property within walking distance to the old town and shopping and highly recommended for any stopover in Frankfurt.

We stayed two nights at Villa Kennedy and I really cannot say enough positive comments about the hotel. It was perfect and the staff was terrific. The hotel is so beautiful, I really could have stayed at the hotel during our entire visit and skipped the sightseeing. I highly recommend this hotel. I can't wait to stay again or at another Rocco Forte hotel.

From the valet who welcomes you at the door step up tho the maid who prepares your room in the evening, everyone treats you as an important guess: courteous, polite, ready to help you. A pampering experience. The decor is cozy, not too modern - could it ever be too modern? - not to classic. Had dinner at the restaurant: excellent, really. I doubt you could find better than that in Frankfurt. Yes it's a 15-20 minute walk to the town's interesting districts, but in return you get a nice and quiet location. I look forward to my next stay there.

Room Tip: My room was not on the garden side. It was a good choice because there was a big event that evening at the hotel and not doubt I was on the quiet side.

Stayed here twice recently, both times in a std room. The hotel is in a quiet residential area just off the CBD. A little out of the way and not as convenient the major chain hotels in the city, but a short walk to the river and 15-20 mins to the old town. Its quite close to the musuem strip however. A taxi to Alter Oper or the main train station would cost about 8 euro. There is a tram stop just behind the hotel, along with a petrol station where you can get drinks, snacks or even motor oil if you wish.

The hotel is beautiful and set in a castle type low rise building affording it character and charm that few if any can match in the area. The common areas and corridors are open and spacious, while the lobby has some very nice artworks. There's a SPA and fitness centre somewhere in the hotel too. Rooms are relatively spacious (by european standards), but sadly there wasnt much of a view. Bathrooms are big (shower, tub, bidet etc) with REN toiletries. Creepy looking medusa on the tiles though. Heated towel rack and everything else you would expect of a hotel of this calibre. Bed was very comfy, and a fruitplate was a nice touch albeit rather small. Despite having a room facing the main road there was no discernible noise at night. Theres a small TV (cant seem to find a decent sized tv in any RF hotel) but it would be nice to have a nespresso machine or an ipod doc. There's also a music library linked to the TV system if you want to relive the 80s and early 90s.

Room service was impressive; the first time it arrived in 15 mins, complete with proper S&P shakers and bottles of balsamic and olive oil. They even put the food in a small portable oven to keep it warm if you order a few dishes. Their caprese salad and lobster tagliattellewas were outstanding. The corn spaghetti salad however was rubbish.
Breakfast was very good, a buffet spread of cold items (breads, pastries, muesli, smoked meats and fish) and hot dishes cooked to order. Not the biggest range but enough to keep most people happy and the quality was very good, apart from the sliced fruits, which looked a bit pedestrian. The honeycomb was a nice touch. Coffee however was from an instant machine and tasted average, but the OJ was fresh. Service was good, staff were friendly and efficient. Small billing issue at checkout but it was all sorted in a timely fashion.

The only downsides are that its expensive (and doesnt even have comp WIFI) and a little out of the way; however other so called five star hotels charge similar if not higher tariffs (one of which Ive tried before and was absolute rubbish), and you would be better off staying here and making the trek into the city rather than some lousy generic motel masquerading as a hotel trading on its brand name in the CBD.

We can't speak highly enough of our stay at Villa Kennedy this past August.
The whole experience put the icing on the cake (as the expression goes!) after a five week European vacation.
I know this is a 5 star property & one should expect excellent service, but from check in to check out the level of service was exemplary.
The staff went that extra mile in every instance - the doorman helped settle a taxi fare dispute on arrival (in our favor & very graciously done) - in fact everyone we came in contact with was incredibly charming, efficient, intelligent & helpful, without being at all cloying.
My husband went for a run a couple of mornings & the doorman handed him a cold bottle of water as he returned & welcomed him by name - nice touch!
The hotel is in a lovely residential district, walking distance to the main station (but a cab is 7euro) the Romer & Sachsenhausen are just blocks away & you are very close to the beautiful river walk - not right downtown but close enough & for us preferable.
The place felt more like a classy boutique hotel than a large 'corporate' space. We had stayed at the Landmark in London a month previous (also a 5 star) & while the stay was very nice, it wasn't at all personal - The Landmark gave you what you expected for what you paid, which is all we ask - the Villa Kennedy far exceeded what we expected for what we paid.
Highly recommend this hotel, & will actually seek out Rocco Forte Hotels in future - if we can afford them - prices vary greatly by location?
