We were booked into the Hotel Helvetia by our travel agent, and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodations as well as the ambiance. This is not a fancy resort, but offers exceptional service, a warm atmosphere and fabulous views. Not only that, the location was terrific, within walking distance of most anything in this small town.... More

This is by far one of the best and most helpful hotels I have ever stayed at. At one of the worlds most beautiful location Me and my wife try to return once a year, it feels like a home away from home. And the service is fantastic. We have been to Hotel Helvetia in spring, summer, and fall. And... More

Fast forward 15 years later to this early October- nothing has changed-it as just as gorgeous/delightful-actually even better than i remember... More

We loved this hotel and can't say enough good things about it! You can tell from the moment you arrive that it's run by a family that really enjoys what they do and that they really care about their guests. When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of champagne. Our room had a beautiful view of the sea.... More

This hotel is a true gem, beautifully located at the end of the Bay of Silence. Compared to Portofino and Cinque Terre this place is actually more stunning and far more secluded. The couple owning and running the hotel are extremely helpful and charming, also a very nice staff. The owners helped us booking and spotting the best restaurants in... More

Sestri Levante is a charming and relatively unspoilt destination and the Helvetia takes the prize for the hotel with the best location in town - on the aptly named Bay of Silence. It's expensive but everything lives up to or exceeds expectations. How nice to be given a complimentary bevvy on arrival rather than having to get stuck into unpacking... More

So very glad I followed reviews and picked Hotel Helvetia in Sestri Levante (listed as no. 1). This town was ideal for us: situated between Cinque Terre which we wanted to visit and Genoa where we were booked for our second week. Everyone on hotel staff was so welcoming and lovely, our room (109) was charming with a spectacular view... More

My husband and I spent one week in this lovely hotel on our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by friendly attentive staff and felt immediately at home. They made sure we have everything we need and even took care of a romantic surprise to congratulate us on the wedding. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful,... More

Located at the seaside with the small own beach right next to the hotel entrance. Guest are provided with beach towels and branded bag to be used for the relaxing days at the seaside for free :).
