Rarely do you find a combination of ideal hotel, stunning location and first class management but Hotel Helvetia is definitely one of those instances. Absolutely Everything is first class across the board. The hotel setting is one of the prettiest you can imagine, very serene. Even the garden view room we had was wonderful, just the right size with a... More

I visited here in early May and I regret that I could not have stayed longer! I loved the room, so white and pristine so beautifully decorated, the spacious sparkling bathroom, not to mention the gorgeous views of the pool and the bay. This hotel is an oasis of calm, specially if you visit the Cinque Terre, you will be... More

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Helvetia in a garden view room. The room was 20sq (small), but well appointed , spotless clean (great maid service!) and comfortable. Services at the hotel are exceptional: everyone is super-polite, friendly and very helpful with everything we needed. Special thanks to the receptionists for helping us planning our stay.

This was the second time for us visiting Sestri Levante and we loved the location of Hotel Helvetia. We wanted to return and stay there! It did not disappoint. The public areas of the hotel - particularly the breakfast terrace and pool area are really beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Our room (a sea-view one) was nice though we... More

Hotel Helvetia is just the right size to give you the balance between the anonymity provided by staying in a hotel, but the personal service to give those little extra touches that make your trip special. The maid service was excellent, discreetly slipping in while you are at breakfast or out for the day to provide a constant supply of... More

Clearly the number one reason to choose this hotel is its location. It is beautifully situated overlooking Baia Silenzio. We had a nice spacious and light room which could easily accomodate two adults and a child. The terrace is a great place to spend time and enjoy the scenery. Hard to beat in Sestri Levante. Parking of your vehicle is... More

My husband, mother, father and I just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Hotel Helvetia. I had to rebook rather last minute and had to give up my sea view rooms. I thought this would be a problem but it was in no way an issue. We had 2 Junior Suites Garden View and we loved them.The views from... More
