We visited Sestri Levante and the Hotel Helvetia as part of our honeymoon to Italy. The hotel is a small but very beautiful family owned business that is well maintain. The management and staff were extremely helpful trying to make our stay as memorable as possible. And it was! It is ideally located (once you find the location driving in... 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

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

In terms of location, this is the best hotel in the town of Sestri Levante, overlooking amazing Baja del Silentio. We had a very nice and spacious room overlooking the bay, with 2 bathrooms and a baby bed. It was very bright, large and clean. Staff were all very friendly and helpful in a natural way, and seemed to love... More

We just stayed at the lovely Hotel Helvetia last week. I thought that I was booking a hotel in one of the Cinque Terre towns. My husband noticed it right before we left but said we shouldn't change it because it looked great. We absolutely fell in love with Hotel Helvetia and the town. Hotel Helvetia really pays attention to... More

Our room was nicely furnished, newly renovated with 2 (full) bathrooms - which were convienient but small. Housekeeping was very attentive (even swept under the bed daily!). Restaurant and front desk staff were always pleasant, very helpful and accomodating. Breakfast was a good "Italian" breakfast. The boutique hotel was always kept immaculately and it is literally just down the street... More

We picked the hotel for the location and a base to visit Porto Fino and Cinque Terra. All the staff were lovely and friendly and the location looking onto the hay very nice. However for the room/hotel the rate is too expensive for what you get. We had a suite with sea view but bathroom was very small (bit like... More
