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

The calm attention to detail is evident everywhere at Helvetia. If I were to list the positives I'd be here all day, so instead I'll give you the only things that detracted in the most minor ways from our stay: Room temperature - we were hot, and there was little to do about it as leaving the windows open meant...

Loved my three night visit here. Lovely decor inside and out, comfortable rooms, stunning views, delicious breakfast, amazing service. Convenient location to Cinque Terre. Dont miss watching the sunset from the terrace with drinks and complementary appetizers.

My review is only for the beach bar. I have not stayed in the hotel itself but highly recommend this delightful bar in the bay just above the beach. The setting is beautifully picturesque and perfect for a late afternoon drink and snack (am sure also great at other times). You will sit in the setting sun, can people watch... More

Hotel Helvetia in Sestri Levante offers everything you want from a vacation at the Italian mediterrranean coast: sea and hospitality. The hotel is located almost on the beach and the beach is not the traditional broad and stretched Italian beach but a small piece of sand surrounding a beautfull small gulf dotted with little boats. The management of the hotel... More

Only had a couple of nights here but what a great experience. The reception when we arrived was wonderful and we were made immediately comfortable with a wine on their fabulous patio overlooking the serene Baia del Silenzio. Our visit was right at the end of the season so the hotel was relatively quiet and the beach area all but... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night but it was so surreal. Hosts and staff are wonderful. Easy access although watch price of taxi from train station. Free bicycles where great to explore. Not much more to say really except assolutamente meraviglioso.

This was simply my favorite stop on our recent trip to the Italian Rivera. Hotel Helvetia exceeded our expectations in all areas from service to food to the actual room! We were greeted by family and were treated with such amazing care I didn't want to leave. The pool was one of the best views in the village! Location was... More

From the moment we arrive the staff welcomed us and made us feel comfortable. They were very helpful with questions, suggestions and directions, with offers of beverages and suggestions for lunch. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. It was very relaxing and comfortable after a day of seeing the sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful but... More
