We spent 3 days and 2 nights here. We loved our stay. This was by far our best experience on a 22 day trip to Europe. The location was outstanding, right on the shore of the Mediterranean. The setting and view alone set this hotel apart! The service was outstanding. They took care of our needs from the moment we... More

This is a lovely place, on the gorgeous little Baia del Silenzio (“Bay of Silence”) of Sestri Levante – a quiet little bay with lovely colored buildings, small beaches, and a few boats. The hotel is run by very nice people, and service is excellent. They serve a great breakfast (fresh fruits, meats, cheese, fresh-squeezed orange juice, yogurts, cereals, delicious... More

The moment we arrived, we were served on-the-house cocktails to ease our day of travel. Our room was super clean and I still have the complimentary flip flops included in our room! Junior Suite included two FULL baths! Turn down and cleaning service was very prompt and perfect. We were staying during the Republic Day Holiday, so the beaches were... More

We loved this hotel even though I am not giving it the highest rating. The downgrade is due to the fact that the wifi did not work for us inside the hotel. We didn't mention this to the staff until we were leaving but I'm not sure what they could have done anyway. We also were disappointed with our "garden... More

We loved this hotel. It is a top notch family run hotel with excellent staff and service. We drove there in our classic Alfa convertible and was concerned about parking, however no need to be as It was driven to their private lock up garage a few minutes away by the owner of the hotel and returned whenever we needed...

We ended a two-week Italy tour at this hotel and could not have been happier. We were tired from touring, and this hotel turned out to be the most relaxing experience - with amazing view, great location, charm and romance. We could not stop snapping photos of the view! The staff was wonderful and made us feel right at home... More

Spectacular find! It really wasn’t my find, but a recommendation from a friend that had stayed there recently. My wife and I really wanted to include the Cinque Terre in our recent travel itinerary and I couldn’t get comfortable with the accommodations I was finding in the Cinque Terre. When I mentioned this to my friend he suggested looking at... More

We recently stayed at Hotel Helvetia for 2 wonderful nights. The staff are the most warm and welcoming we have ever experienced. Our room overlooked the beach and the location of the hotel is the best in town. The town is great for shopping and has plenty of delicious restaurant options. We would happily return to Hotel Helvetia.

This hotel was absolutely amazing. Family run hotel with fantastic service. Treated like a member of their family. Room was beautiful with window overlooking the waster. We had three travelers and were given a room with two bathrooms, a queen bed and twin bed with a divider between the rooms. The hotel was decorated beautifully and breakfast was served on... More

We booked Hotel Helvetia for our first trip to the Italian Riviera and would happily return. We had a junior suite (1 dbl, 1 single; 2 full bathrooms) overlooking Bahia de Silenzio. The setting was indescribable. The terraced pool and sun deck are features not found in many hotels. What a great way to unwind after a day of hiking.... More
