Villa Kennedy

Villa Kennedy

Located in the heart of Frankfurt’s lively, cosmopolitan city is the Villa Kennedy Hotel. This is a boutique establishment that came to life in the 19th century. This elegant and lush retreat compliments the River Main’s leafy banks in the well-heeled district of Sachsenhausen. Moreover, guests from all over the world, including the United States, come here on a yearly basis. 


Graceful yet glamorous, the resort is a haven for all. The new and old stately families, excelling youthful and retiring business people, and the royalties from Hollywood to those with their frames graced the Hall of fame. 

Constructed in 1901, around the Villa Speyer, the Villa Kennedy Hotel was extensively renovated. Besides, it was improved to serve as a 5-star hotel in 2006. It updated wings that now form a vibrant central courtyard garden - a rare sight in Frankfurt.

Additionally, the hotel’s name is a tribute to the President, John F Kennedy. He embraced Frankfurt with his presence in 1963, the year marking his death. The resort also pays accolades to the former president and numerous renowned celebrities from Hollywood in the form of large-scale photos hanging from its walls. 

The Villa Kennedy Hotel redefines luxury and comfort with its centuries-old sandstone façade. Here, you can appreciate contemporary and refined decor with warm, beige tones that make the hotel feel like a home away from home. 


Situated a few blocks away from the exclusive residential area is the Villa Kennedy Hotel. Moreover, it offers the ideal combination of the city buzz during the day and some peace and quietness through the nights. 

The excellent location allows easy and quick access to the nearby bustling restaurants and bars. Additionally, several tourist hotspots, such as Frankfurt’s famed Museum and the downtown area. Are close by 

This luxury hotel is a five-minute stroll from the famous Museum Embankment. This cultural and historic hub lets you soak in the city’s heritage by paying visits to the Liebieghaus and Städel Museum. For a change of scene, sights such as the Cathedral and Frankfurt Opera House are a short walk away, on the other side of the River Main. Furthermore, the city’s international Frankfurt Airport is a mere 15 kilometers away.

Look and Feel 

The Villa Kennedy a Rocco Forte Hotel, brings together the exotic 19th-century charm and modern flair. The resort’s textures, materials, and colors fuse to form a minimalistic look with a touch of class and luxury. 

Moreover, the hotel’s overall design and infrastructure exude a retro feel that is hypnotic yet welcoming. Furthermore, timber floors, mirrored walls, and delicate furnishings compliment the neutral tones decorating the walls. 

What's more, the resort will make you feel right at home. With its inviting and cozy rooms and gigantic, modern bathrooms that showcase unique glass mosaics, you'll certainly enjoy your stay.

Rooms and Suites

The rooms exhibit the same impeccable design as the rest of the retreat. The 127 rooms and 36 luxury suites, crafted by the experts' Martin Brudnizkibear and Olga Polizzi, exude a relaxed, glamorous aura that immediately puts you at ease.

Moreover, each room is a safe sanctuary from the world’s worries. They are tainted with Bavarian wood floors, high-end textiles, and exceptional color schemes. 

The Deluxe King Suite, the lowest in this category, is elegant and spacious. It comes with a Lavazza coffee machine, a large television, and a comfortable working space. Moreover, the bathrooms have exceptional-quality marble and heated mosaic floors. Each also has limestone dressing tables and individual shower units. 

The newly designed suites also redefine excellence and class with large, plush beds and spectacular city views. Furthermore, four of these suites are named after the JFK era’s popular and powerful women — Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O, Marlene Dietrich, and Audrey Hepburn. 

Additionally, the rooms have breezy, welcoming yellows, soft whites, and vibrant blues. They also bear living rooms enhanced by local oak shelves, delicate chairs, and Christopher Farr wallpapers. Besides, lavish carpets assemble in the swinging sixties’ hounds-tooth style. 

To complete the picture, beautiful terraces complement the rooms overlooking the hotel’s magnificent courtyard or garden. Almost all guest rooms at the Villa Kennedy Hotel stretch for as long as 3,500 square feet. This allows guests to bask in the city’s heritage while enjoying a spacious retreat. 

Restaurants and Dining

Each dish at the Gusto restaurant oozes fun and flavor. Besides, the setting itself boasts Michelin-starred chef Fulvio Pierangelini’s flair. The artistic dishes combine sophistication and simplicity, cooked by authentic Italian recipes with fresh local ingredients.

Indulge in the Ravioli’ Gruene Soße’, Fulvio’s Spaghetti al Pomodoro. Alternatively, there is the fish of the day prepared on a Himalayan Salt stone. Furthermore, the Gusto Italian restaurant’s pure Italian art paired with the Mediterranean flair will engulf you in an exceptional ambiance that makes you linger for a little while longer.


You know you have entered the JFK Bar when mirrored, and gleaming gold accents and splashes of blinding velvets in the shades of emerald, sapphire, and ruby surround you. The bar is the ‘it’ venue for the romantic lovers, a place to hold and behold. 

Built just at the lush Villa Garden end, the intimate setting has long entertained Frankfurt’s exuberant crowd and enthusiastic tourists. Moreover, a gateway to the Kennedy era’s vintage, the bar plays live music several nights a week. This is accompanied by the soft clinking of fine drinks and the pleasurable rattle of the cocktail maker.
