We arrived at the hotel around noon as was welcomed by the most friendly staff who helped with our bags and took our car to the garage. Before we went to the room they asked if we would like to have a small break at the bar outside. We gladly said yes and was then served a drink and some... More

We stayed 5 nights in an ocean view junior suite (room 110), their highest category room. I've included a few photos of the room. Also, here's a bit of unsolicited advice: avoid Cinque Terre. If you're like me, you're weighing staying here versus one of the Cinque Terre towns. We took the train to Riomaggiore and Vernazza and were horrified... More

From the moment we arrived at Hotel Helvetia we knew it was going to be an exceptional stay. Greeted with a huge smile & seated on the balcony with a welcome glass of processo it was like arriving in paradise. The hotel is in a stunning position overlooking the Bay of Silence. It's an old villa that has been renovated... More

One of the most beautiful places I have been and this hotel is a fantastic place to stay! So glad that we stayed in Sestri Lavante rather than Portofino - it was a lot quieter and less tourists but still had a really good buzzy atmosphere. Staff at the hotel were really really friendly, helpful and the room we had... More

Hotel Helvetia is a hidden gem! We were blown away by its sublime location (perched on the far end of the Bay of Silence the views from the hotel are stunning). The staff were all utterly charming and incredibly attentive and really made us feel at home. We cannot recommend Hotel Helvetia highly enough. We will be back!

I chose the hotel because of its location overlooking the Bay of Silence and the swimming pool, and we weren't disappointed. We had a good welcome at Reception, who continued to provide excellent service throughout the trip, including providing return travel to the railway station for our early departure. We had a room with a "garden view" on the 4th... More
