Returned to St. Petersburg and again stayed in Helvetia. One of my stays was 5 Days. Found the staff polite, efficient and willing to work with you. Several times needed to arrange taxi and was always there when needed. Driver was quite good. Rooms are all a little different depending on where you stay in hotel. I have found I... More

During my trip to Russia in December of 2014, I had a wonderful stay at the Helvetia Hotel. I would not hesitate to return and highly recommend the hotel to anyone staying inside the city of St Petersburg. As a woman traveling solo, I felt very safe at the Helvetia plus well taken care of and looked after by the... More

brilliant location -200 meters from Nevsky, 3 min from Moskovsky train station (if you travel from/to Moscowas well) good rooms. Wi-fi, beer restaurant inside. Some bars and clubs in a walking distance. If you take not the cheapest room you will have a REALLY king-size bed (>2 m width)

In this hotel the most important two things - the location and quality of services. For St. Petersburg, it is very important to live close to Nevsky prospect. Also near the metro station and major train station, where trains leave for Moscow. But here the hotel is located on the street adjacent to the Nevsky prospect - 7 minutes on... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Great location off of Nevesky Prospect and an easy walk from Moscovsky station, arriving from Moscow. Hotel was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The minibar was incredibly well priced, a privilege in a very expensive country.The reception staff were extremely helpful, and perhaps the most friendly we encountered in Russia. The hotel was situated a good... More

Helvetia Hotel is a sympathetic hotel located in the heart of St Pete but it is totally silent in the rooms. Our group had 6 rooms and everyone of us were happy with their rooms and slept well. Breakfast was served in the hotel restaurant by the inside yard. We were pleasantly surprised by the champagne served at the breakfast.... More

I live in the States and visited my home town. This hotel is exceptional. No street noise which is not easy to find in St Petersburg. Claret is an excellent restaurant with Russian cuisine near by. Close to Nevsky prospect and Vosstaniaya station subway.

The hotel is just off Nevsky Prospect, the main drag here. A slightly long walk to the Hermitage but the area is very lively with restaurants all over. Service quality at the hotel and its two restaurants was outstanding, as was the room. The quaint courtyard gave a degree of separation from road noise and was a great outdoor cafe... More
