“Excellent Value, Great night's sleep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

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.

Best regards to Chicago,
Georg Plesser

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.

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...
