We stayed there for a whole week in April this year. Weather was terrible and that was already terrible enough.....but happily in the hotel room it was cozy and warm. It was also very calm; no traffic noise or other guest noises. Very good beds,small but good bathroom. Tea and coffee facilities are present. It is a 5 minutes walk... More

Nice clean rooms in this charming hotel which has two restaurants-one of which is open 24/7 .Useful after a hard day visiting this magnificent city! it's in a side street but Russian side streets hold some...

I have just returned from an incredible three day trip to St Petersburg,which I wouldn't have enjoyed so much without the help of the very efficient and helpful staff of this delightful hotel, particularly both concierges. They gave us comprehensive advice of what to do and where to go before arriving, and when we made our choices, helped it all... More

Charming little hotel close to Nevkiy Prospekt and Mayakovskaya subway station. Friendly and efficient staff and excellent breakfast buffet. The rooms are a bit small, but well equipped and very clean. Prices are more than reasonable for this rather expensive city. Warmly recommended.

This hotel was the last on a trip that began in Beijing, continued on the Trans-Siberian Railway through Mongolia, ending in Moscow. From there it was an easy trip to St Petersburg, mainly to visit the Hermitage Museum. The four nights in the Helvetia Hotel simply contributed to one of my best travel experiences ever. Previously the Swiss Embassy, it... More

Aside from the historic value of the buildings that house this hotel (take the time to read about it - details in a booklet in each room), staying here was like an oasis from the hustle and bustle of downtown St Petersburg. When we got to the hotel, we couldn't believe it. We were offered champagne on check-in, the staff... More

Great hotel, right in the middle of everywhere. Nice clean rooms, courtyard for coffee. Breakfast was o.k., would have liked maybe a bit more "western" breakfast...e.g. yogurt, cereals. Staff were very helpfull, Great hotel for position to all the museums and shopping.
