"A charming launch pad for a long weekend in the city" (The Daily Telegraph), Villa Kennedy has luxury in spades. It’s set in a stunning mansion, complete with gothic windows and fairy-tale turrets, and what Condé Nast Traveller calls “one of the coolest avant or après addresses in town”.

The property is on the residential side of the River Main, a 30-minute walk from the Medieval centre and business district. Many of the city’s renowned museums, including the Städel museum of art, are a 15-minute walk along the riverbank. The hotel is also on the outskirts of Sachsenhausen, where you’ll find “Frankfurt’s most civilized nightlife” (Rough Guides). It has great transport links -- the hotel is a 10-minute drive from the airport and the Vogelweidstrasse tram stop is one block away, taking you to the city’s main station in two stops.

Back at the hotel, guests can take a dip in the 15-metre pool (with garden views) or chill in the sauna, steam room or Jacuzzi. Yoga and pilates classes are available, as are organic treatments in the spa (additional charges). In the evening, take a seat at Gusto, the hotel’s Zagat-rated Italian restaurant, with dishes such as spaghetti al pomodoro and Wagyu beef grilled on a Himalayan salt stone on the menu. Lighter options are available in the JFK Bar, where the cocktail menu numbers over 100 original mixes. Al fresco dining is also offered in the leafy courtyard in warmer months.

According to Frommer’s, the spacious rooms are “among the swankiest in town”. All have under-floor heating in the bathrooms, free Wi-Fi and chic, minimalist furniture, plus some rooms have balconies overlooking the street or the quiet courtyard. Opt for a suite for in-room check-in, free pay TV with movies, and valet service -- they’ll even unpack your bag and press your clothes when you arrive.
