Comfy rooms, pleasant staff and the convenience of a 24 hour restaurant, this is one of my regular choices when staying in St Petersburg. The staff are very helpful and will help with even obscure requests and offer you a glass of free champagne (it's also available at breakfast). They could fix a few things though. In the several rooms... More

Overall: 5- Comments: 2 minutes from Nevsky, and with the upgrade, really great place to stay compared with other hotels I StP. Pleasant, clean and friendly.

This was my fourth stay at the Helvetia and I was pleased to be back. The transfer from the airport was comfortable and the check-in by pleasant, English speaking reception staff was efficient. The elevator from reception seems to arrive mid floors so you always have some stairs to negotiate. This is not something that bothers me but may be... More

The Helvetia is a comfortable hotel in the centre of St P. It is pleasantly built around an open courtyard which was decorated for Christmas during my visit. One minor problem during wet weather would be crossing this to the restaurant. My room was well equipped and comfortable - please note if you have mobility issues the lift only services... More

Breakfast very good in the nearby Marius restaurant where they serve breakfast and we also enjoyed Swiss food and beer for lunch. The location is great , two minutes walk from Nevski Prospect .

Room itself(cheapest one) is a bit tight, but surprisingly has everything u need. Nice bed with a pillow menu. Huge windows with typical "old St-Petersburg" style... More

Great room. Sitting area, good king size bed. Nice breakfast in restaurant with excellent food. Concierge helpful. We did not have a car (it is Russia after all) so can't speak about parking. We did not use and fitness areas.

Great Hotel with really excellent service. Our room was extremely comfortable and at the rear of the building we couldn't even hear the traffic. A perfect arrival experience, having just survived a terrifying taxi ride from Pulkovo airport - a complimentary glass of sparkling wine was very welcome. The staff were always friendly, helpful and polite and nothing seemed to... More
