The boldly luxurious five-star Rocco Forte Villa Kennedy is housed in an extensively renovated villa dating back to 1901. American President John F. Kennedy stayed in this hotel in 1963, after which the hotel’s name was modified in his honor; the hotel walls are still adorned with framed photographs of his visit. The simple, elegant suites and rooms come with designer fittings, furniture and furnishing, and marble bathrooms with heated floors. The award-winning, in-house Italian restaurant, Gusto, takes your taste-buds on an exquisite adventure, and the open-air Villa Garden welcomes visitors to soak up the sun while enjoying delectable cuisine. Rocco Forte Villa Kennedy further spoils guests with a huge, inviting indoor pool, a hot tub, steam room and sauna, a high-end gym, and more.
Given that Grandhotel Hessischer Hof is owned by the Landgrave and Prince of Hesse family foundation, it comes as no surprise that guests are treated to a royal experience here. It is minutes away from the business district of Frankfurt, as well as within a convenient distance of the main attractions in town, making it an ideal choice for both business and leisure travelers. You’ll want to spend a large chunk of your stay simply admiring the interior of the hotel, which is graced with precious artwork and artifacts sourced from ancient castles. The rooms and suites exhibit an awe-inspiring harmony of historic and modern furniture and amenities. The hotel also houses two fantastic restaurants, the oldest bar in Frankfurt, as well as a cutting-edge fitness center.
Jumeirah Frankfurt is a 25-story, shimmering glass skyscraper that adds a generous dash of glamor to the Frankfurt skyline. The hotel aims to provide its guest with a contemporary, cutting-edge experience, going beyond the usual luxurious amenities travelers normally associate with five-star accommodation. You’ll find motion sensors and body-heat detectors in rooms and wake up to scintillating views of the Frankfurt cityscape through floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel also has a luxury spa and provides guests with complimentary access to the pool next door. Jumeirah is part of the glitzy MyZeil shopping mall, and close to shopping streets and the most significant attractions in town, making it a destination of choice for leisure travelers.
Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof is located in the happening district of Bahnhofviertel, a 15–20 minute walk to the heart of Frankfurt, a mere 10-minute stroll to the business district, and just around the corner from the railway station. While the sandstone façade of the hotel reflects historic glamor, the interior has been thoroughly modernized to live up to the expectations of contemporary travelers. This five-star hotel welcomes guests to rejuvenate at the spa and Turkish bath, and even brings wellness options to your room upon request. The in-house restaurant dishes out a delicious breakfast spread and international cuisine, while the bar and lounge welcomes guests to linger over refreshing drinks at the end of a busy day.
Resembling a high-end corporate house from the outside, Roomers is all swanky on the inside. Everything in this hotel screams “ultra-modern comfort,” from minimalist décor to mood lighting, fur-covered lounges to plush chairs. The rooms and attached bathrooms—a playful mix of neutral and dark shades, and steel and stone—live up to the funky theme of the hotel décor. The in-house restaurant earns rave reviews not only for its delicious spread but also for its unique ambience. The fitness area and spa on the top floor, quite literally the icing on the cake, are a nod to the cutting-edge layout of the rest of the hotel. As a bonus, the hotel enjoys an unbeatable location a mere hop from the river promenade and in the vicinity of the major highlights of Frankfurt.
In case you’re wondering if it’s possible to find a good hotel in Frankfurt without breaking your bank, the answer is a resounding “yes!” The Frankfurt branch of the hotel chain Capri by Fraser is an interesting mishmash of boutique hotel elements, the homeliness of apartments, and modern amenities. It enjoys a convenient location in the midst of a spattering of restaurants, cafés and shops, and is about a 30-minute walk from Frankfurt’s Altstadt. The interior décor is neutral and soothing, with colorful details adding an artsy touch. Both the studio apartments and one-room apartments are spacious, airy and come with modern fittings.
The 25hours Hotel franchise is known for its funky, comfortable accommodation at affordable prices, and the Frankfurt branch is no exception. Its accessibility is unbeatable, as it sits practically next door to the railway station and a leisurely 20-minute walk to the center. Plus, it’s in a hip, lively neighborhood with rows of cafés, restaurants, clubs and bars. The rooms are unapologetically upbeat, painted in bright reds, blues and purples, with posters, graphics and funky objects added for extra measure. It’s difficult to bag a table at the in-house restaurant without reservation, which attests to its popularity.
A stark contrast to 25hours’ bold splashes of color, the décor at The Pure is all pristine-white, occasionally broken by dramatic pops of color. This hotel explores the concept of minimalist aesthetics and the result is an undeniably stylish setting, done up with tasteful, elegant furniture, furnishing and fittings. There is no in-house restaurant but that hardly matters, as the hotel is located next to the railway station, practically in the middle of some of the best restaurants and cafés in Frankfurt. The patio, with its ethnic design and comfortable seating, is often the guests’ favorite place to unwind after a long day.
