“Breathtaking !”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

A true five star experience.

Lets start with the only irritating minus point : A 20 € dayrate for Internet access... I would expect it nowadays to be complimentary !

For the rest : Nothing but superlatives.
Superb hotel with extremely friendly staff.
Great restaurant, but the value/price ratio isn't right. The food is excellent, but too expensive for the value you get.
Everything is decorated with taste.

Enjoying a sunny afternoon on the inner patio, with a snack and a long drink is a divine experience...

...between long flights and chose this place to rest. It was perfect!! The attention of the service was seen in every detail. The spa, the pool, and the relax area were exactly what i needed.
They were even kind enough to take me to the airport the next morning.....
A place i am sure will not miss in my next stop in Frankfurt....

Villa Kennedy shows , how the easyness of a big private housing can be kept in a comfortable serviceminded way of treating
the guests like a friends visit. An excelent food and restaurant concept offers a variety big enough . Rooms with a terrace to the inner courtyard are big and comfortable and offer short foodwalking ways to spa, cafe and lobby.

This may be the best hotel/villa i have stayed in Europe..The rooms or at least mine was amazing
with overlooking the beautiful courtyard...you have to ask for this room.
The restaurants and breakfast buffet will leave you breathless.The Spa and Infinity pool are not to be believed and i do step aerobics and they even had that to my amazement.
the location is walking distance to town and what is called Museum Row barely a 5 minute walk really it is the best location in the city.
The history of this old residence/hotel is unreal just ask the staff
They have Jaguaers and other cars to take you places they took me to the airport upon my leaving but i dont know when they will take you places.??They also gave me gratis to the museums but remember i was there almost 2 weeks and in one of the best rooms so i did get vip service at all times.
Also the decor is Italy contemporary and in very soft tones and the bathrooms are huge and the beds all king i believe and the walls are decorated in black and white of our president John but the reason its called hotel Kennedy is because of the Street is named after him.
If you go to Frankfurt even if you dont stay there please go see it or just dine at Gusto the restaurant!

Room Tip: Ask for 1st floor with the balcony view of courtyard!
