I decided to splurge a bit and treat myself for a stay at Villa Kennedy. On their website I found the travel and wellness special which included a massage, a day ticket to explore Frankfurt, champagne on arrival and a meal voucher.
I had to inquire about this more then once, when asking at the spa for the massage it was a problem, at the room service the didn't know anything about the champagne that was supposed to be in your room on arrival etc. etc. so for a very good expensive hotel it was quite a disappointment.
I was never offered the day pass, even when I asked at the concierge desk they were not aware of this. Although I found them to be very helpful ( I had a parcel delivered before arrival and it was ready and waiting). They also arranged a cab to the airport FOC, which was really great.
The Spa was also very good, with a great massage, and facilities. The staff was very professional and the refreshments was good.
The room had everything except a facility to make coffee, which was a bit disappointing, but this was my own fault I should've checked before. Though rooms service was very quick and the food was delicious.
On the first night I had no turn down and only one big towel, but on the 2nd night it was all changed.
I somehow expected more of the Villa Kennedy, and was a bit disappointed that the small touches wasn't there. I will not stay here again, I feel even at expensive hotels and lodges on do want to feel that you had value for your money, and here I didn't have that feeling afterwards.
